Christian Dior Cruise 2015 Front Row

Dior Cruise 2015 Front Row

The Christian Dior Cruise 2015 show took place on Wednesday (May 7) in Brooklyn, New York City.

The front row was packed with Dior devotees, with Jennifer Lawrence notably absent as she is currently filming ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ in Paris, France.

Rihanna: Despite the tattoos and our knowledge of the Bajan star telling us otherwise, Rihanna looked really sweet wearing a dainty Dior pale-pink quilted silk dress with a ruffled hemline. The look was styled with Dior tri-colour pumps with an asymmetrical strap, and a metallic top-handle ‘Lady Dior’ bag from the Spring 2014 collection, plus a ‘Diorific’ necklace and bracelet and ‘Mise en Dior’ earrings.

Marion Cotillard: Just when I thought the French actress had turned a corner, she’s back to selecting tent dresses. It’s a shimmering Dior off white silk Fall 2014 dress with an embroidered off white knitted t-shirt, but oversized and unflattering nonetheless. It screams maternity. Her Dior choices continue to baffle me.

Margot Robbie: The actress is not having a good week. First the Met Gala and now this. Possibly the excessive tan is at fault here, as it’s clashing with her Dior gold lamé Pre-Fall 2014 skirt which was paired with a Dior green wool crepe top. She styled her look with a Dior black clutch and pumps, plus one of those ‘Diorganic’ necklaces featuring a waterfall of green crystals and resin beads that entwine around the neck like leaves which hails from the Spring 2014 collection.

Marion Cotillard In Mary Katrantzou – ‘The Immigrant’ New York Premiere

Marion Cotillard In Mary Katrantzou - 'The Immigrant'  New York Premiere

Marion Cotillard attended the Dior & Vanity Fair with The Cinema Society premiere of ‘The Immigrant’ held at The Paley Center for Media on Tuesday (May 6) in New York City.

The actress surprised me by wearing a Mary Katrantzou Fall 2014 lace dress. Rendered in a specially commissioned Swiss lace, the long-sleeved dress features a geo-stripe lace body with a mixed badge-and-symbol lace overlay at the skirt.

Why am I surprised? Because she’s not wearing Dior. The surprise is extended when you consider that Dior were hosting the event.

Now back to the frock.

I’m excited to see Marion give us something more adventurous in an attempt to turn around her ‘Magnifique to Tragique’ award of 2013.

It’s been too long since we saw her in something with a bit more character and drama. Let’s hope this is the start of something new.

Aquazzura ‘Chelsea’ sandals completed her look.

Get The Look: Marion Cotillard’s Met Gala Glamour

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsMarion Cotillard stunned on the red carpet on Monday’s Costume Institute Gala at the Met.

While her beautifully intricate navy Christian Dior dress wowed both onlookers and attendees, it was her classic and elegant makeup that truly made the full look exceptional. Seeking inspiration from bombshells of the past, celebrity makeup artist, Christophe Danchaud created a look that was both timeless and ultra-luxurious.

“The dress makes a graphic statement and we complemented it with glowing skin, iridescent eyes and richly pigmented lips,” says makeup artist Christophe Danchaud.

Here is how you can recreate this beautiful look:

Face (complexion): To begin, Christophe prepped Marion’s skin Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum. He followed with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in 1.5 and Hourglass Corrective Concealer in Pearl. To finish the skin and give it a glowing from within look, Christophe applied Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light all over the face. The dusting of this powder along the skin created a flattering soft-focus effect.

Cheeks: Keeping in line with the skin’s luxurious glow, he applied Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta. The golden fuchsia tone of the blush gave the cheek a perfect touch of color and radiance.

Eyes: Using Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow in Exhibition, he began applying the shimmering lilac shade to the entire eye lid area. He then proceeded to blend the dark mauve shade in the duo palette close to her lash line. To lighten and brighten the look, Christophe used a gold pigment on the lids as well. Moving to the lashes, he applied several generous coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.

Brows: To frame Marion’s face, Christophe defined her brows with Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette.

Lips: To achieve that richly pigmented lip color, Christophe began by lining lips with Hourglass Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner in Raven (Summer Launch) and followed with a mixture of Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Raven and Muse, all of which created a sensual orange red shade.

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture – 2014 Met Gala

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture - 2014 Met Gala

Marion Cotillard is stunning on the red carpet for the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City.

The gorgeous actress wore Dior Spring 2014 Couture with Dior Couture shoes.

The intricate navy dress fits Marion flawlessly. The low cut is balanced out with a lovely full tea length skirt, drawing attention to her quirky shoe choice. I am not crazy about these, but for a style innovator like Marion, she pulls them off.

This elegantly simple look is tied together with a glossy red lip and a sideswept updo.

Marion is such a class act and never settles for simple on the red carpet, which I admire about her. Although she looks lovely, I would’ve been more excited to see her in something dramatic and memorable. This would’ve been better off at a movie premiere and not at this event. What do you think?
