Which Was Your Favourite Marion Cotillard Look From The ‘Rust and Bone’ Promo Tour?

Which Was Your Favourite Marion Cotillard Look From The ‘Rust and Bone’ Promo Tour

As we expected, Marion Cotillard’s promo tour for ‘Rust and Bone’ was a Dior fest, with a brief “hallelujah, it’s Alaïa” moment.

The tour kick started during Toronto Film Festival, where she donned a strapless grey Dior Fall 2012 Couture dress.

This look and the Christian Dior Spring 2013 LBD she wore to the London premiere were the only looks I liked during her promo tour.

While she sparkled at the AFI Fest premiere, the New York premiere’s Spring 2013 Dior look was unflattering; the Alaia wasn’t particularly exciting; and, between the hair and the Pre-Fall 2013 Dior mullet dress in Toyko, we were left wondering what had happened to our favourite French actress’ red carpet mojo.

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior – ‘Rust And Bone’ Toyko Premiere

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior - ‘Rust And Bone’ Toyko Premiere

Marion Cotillard took to the red carpet at the Marunouchi Piccadilly in Japan this evening for the Toyko premiere of her latest movie, ‘Rust And Bone’.

Not surprisingly, she wore a Christian Dior dress, as she has done pretty much exclusively during this promo tour.

The floral textured strapless frock from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection has a rise-and-fall hemline which reveals a blue satin lining.

I’m not the greatest fan of rise-and-fall hemlines and even someone of Marion’s calibre can’t make me love this look – especially with the contrast lining – but I think my disappointment is more focused on the lackluster styling.

The styling was very simple with Dior pumps, with an asymmetrical strap and a glossy lip colour completing her look.

Can Marion do no wrong or does everyone deserve an off day?

Front Row @ Christian Dior Fall 2013

Dior Front Row 1

A group of bold-named beauties held court at Christian Dior’s Fall 2013 presentation to see Raf Simons’ arty collection in Paris on Friday afternoon. While none were as dramatically dressed as fellow show-goer Ulyana Sergeenko, they still impressed with top-to-toe looks from the designer.

Marion Cotillard: The French actress played it safe in a simple black coat worn over a monochrome dress and paired with black tights and pointy stilettos. The one perk that kept this look interesting to me; the adorable over-the-shoulder box handbag.

Olivia Palermo: Stepping out in a dress from Dior’s Spring 2013 collection, Olivia worked the stripes and the fringe to her advantage. She kept warm with a black overcoat that featured yet another trend: fur. I loved her bright matte red lip and the flash of patent lavender on her shoe.

Anna Dello Russo: Always willing to break the style rule book, Vogue Japan’s editor-at-large was the only one who eschewed Dior. Instead, she took fur to the max in her Fendi number, ripped right off the Fall 2013 runway. The result? An interesting mix of primitive and punk with a techno edge. Her fuzzy clutch was just as “hair”-raising.

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior – Jappeloup’ Paris Premiere

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior - Jappeloup' Paris Premiere

Marion Cotillard attended the ‘Jappeloup’ premiere at Le Grand Rex in Paris, France yesterday evening.

I guess this is what awards season fatigue looks like, despite this being a Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2013 look.

French celebs don’t always dress up for premieres so I shouldn’t be too surprised by this laidback approach, but I wish she had worn something just a little more interesting.

A tweed cropped jacket, paired with a dark-grey turtleneck and fitted pants, was styled with a cross-body Dior bag and Dior ankle boots from the same Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture – Cesar Film Awards 2013

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture - Cesar Film Awards 2013

Marion Cotillard attended the Cesar Film Awards 2013 held at Theatre du Chatelet on Friday evening in Paris, France.

The actress wore yet another look from the Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture collection.

Her BAFTA look was sexy and fashion-forward, but the same can’t be said for this strapless creation.

Opting for a safer, simpler look, her light-pink gown with black stripes was styled with black embellished pumps and Chopard jewels.

I love the 40s style pin up, but I’m finding it hard to get excited about this gown. This should’ve been an option for Jennifer Lawrence.

Do you agree?

Best Dressed Of The Week – Rihanna In Alaia, Marion Cotillard In Dior Couture, Eddie Redmayne In Alexander McQueen & Frank Ocean In Dior Homme

BDOTW Womens 18 Feb

Despite an amazing week of stunning gowns, it was a two clothes-horse race for the title of Best Dressed this week.

It was a close call, but you eventually picked Rihanna’s Alaia Grammy dress as your favourite, whereas I picked the runner-up Marion Cotillard.

We may grumble at the French actress always wearing Dior, but she wears it so well.

Many wouldn’t have been able to pull off this fashion-forward look with such ease, plus I love bold colour, which brightened up a cold and rainy evening in London.

BDOTW Mens 18 Feb

When it came to men, our choices again couldn’t be more different. You picked the handsome Eddie Redmayne in Alexander McQueen, whereas I opted for Frank Ocean in Dior Homme.

Aside from the sleek ink-blue colour, I loved that he wore such a laidback piece on a red carpet where most of the men opted for a classic tux. The Grammys is the one place to stand out and do something different so I’m glad he didn’t opt for a suit and tie.

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture - 2013 BAFTA AwardsEngaging in somewhat of a red-carpet sprint, a visibly chilled Marion Cotillard battled the elements as she quickly posed amid umbrellas and photographers’ flashes at the 2013 BAFTA Awards on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London.

After wearing a black-and-white cocktail dress from the Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2013 collection at the BAFTA nominees party, she played the Dior card yet again—except in far more dramatic fashion.

Wearing a confection from designer Raf Simons’ Spring 2013 Couture runway, the ‘Rust and Bone’ Leading Actress nominee made a true fashion-girl move; she even eschewed a shrug or overcoat to better show off the sunny yellow gown that could have cleared overcast skies with its radiant colour.

The billowing drape of the dress and the peek of skin from the sheer side panel brought the look into style-forward territory and made it a bit of a red-carpet risk.

The addition of a diamond necklace and Marion’s retro waves and red lip delivered a touch of old Hollywood glam. But I keep wondering if this look may have fared even better without the necklace.

You may recall that Jennifer Lawrence wore a navy gown from this collection at the 2013 SAG Awards.

Were you applauding for Marion’s entrance, or did it come apart at the seams?

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior – BAFTA Nominees Party

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior - BAFTA Nominees Party

Marion Cotillard maintained her sartorial allegiance to Christian Dior at the EE British Academy Film Awards nominees party held at Asprey London.

For this occasion, the ‘Rust & Bone’ actress chose a black and white houndstooth print dress with an A-line silhouette from the Dior Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

The contrasting graphic prints cropped waist-defining layered bodice and full skirt set Cotilard’s look apart at the party.

Paired with bold fiery red pointy slingback Dior pumps and a Dior matching statement necklace, this chic dress packed the right dose of uptown and downtown flair to make a sensational mark.

A tamed slicked back hairstyle kept the focus on her modern look and rosy makeup.
