Christian Dior Cruise 2014 Front Row

Dior Cruise 2014 Celebrity Front Row

The Christian Dior Cruise 2014 presentation took place in Monaco yesterday evening with many celebs taking to the front row to select their red carpet looks first hand.

Jessica Biel: Easily my favourite of the bunch. Jessica seems to have fallen back in love with fashion and it shows in her choice. She selected an ensemble from the Fall 2013 collection featuring a black, pink and white houndstooth print bustier and draped black skirt with a bright pink insert. The most vivid colour came from her pink lip shade which elevated what was already a spectacular look. A side-swept bun, off-white sandals and dazzling David Webb jewels provided the finishing touches.

Marion Cotillard: The French beauty kept her look simple opting for a white Dior trench coat from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. What I love most about this look are her black Dior pumps with a neon-yellow toe-cap.

Ruth Wilson: The British actress wore a navy strapless bustier silk dress featuring the printed Warhol ‘Femme Head 1958? artwork and gold ‘High Heel 1956′ embroidery. I love the dress and the styling which included lavender pumps and a navy-blue clutch, however, her hair and makeup and overall dishevelment puts me off this look.

Zhang Ziyi: Representing Asia, Zhang was the picture of elegance wearing a black-and-white look from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. While the high-low hem isn’t a look we always appreciate. I think the look works really well on this occasion, mostly because the look isn’t too overworked and the styling is kept simple with a black clutch, white pumps and Dior jewels.

Marion Cotillard In Vivienne Westwood – Chopard Lunch

Marion Cotillard In Vivienne Westwood - Chopard Lunch

Marion Cotillard attended the Chopard Lunch during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival in France this afternoon.

You will be as shocked as I am to discover that she’s not wearing Dior.

While she is the perfect ambassador for the French brand, we long to see her in something less predictable.

On this occasion she fulfilled our non-Dior-look-for-a-refreshing-change desires by wearing a Vivienne Westwood corseted gown.

Her fluorescent pink-and-ivory silk-jacquard strapless gown with a high-low hem may be considered a tad too revealing for a luncheon but, as the saying goes, ‘this is Cannes so anything goes’.

Opting for minimal makeup, she completed her look with a Chopard ring and tan sandals.

Are you glad to see her wearing something other than Dior, or would you have preferred something more conservative for a luncheon?

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture – 2013 Met Gala

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture - 2013 Met Gala

French beauty Marion Cotillard wore head to toe Christian Dior with Chopard jewels to the Met Gala.

Her asymmetrically hemmed Spring 2013 gown is a fun choice with its peek-a-boo yellow lining and monochromatic nudes, but it doesn’t feel quite right for the Met Ball. I’m thinking this would be much more appropriate at a slightly less formal event.

I do love that she paired these houndstooth ankle-strapped pumps with this dress–an unexpected combination, and a definite pop of punk–but it still doesn’t quite scream Met Ball to me.

Marion’s barely there makeup and 40s-inspired curls are the perfect compliment for this look, but I’m still feeling underwhelmed. Especially after seeing the other Dior-adorned star at tonight’s event.

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior & Chloé – Maud Fontenoy Foundation Annual Gala

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior & Chloé - Maud Fontenoy Foundation Annual Gala

After wearing Christian Dior nearly exclusively for her recent ‘Rust and Bone’ promo tour, Marion Cotillard found another occasion to showcase the designer at yesterday’s Maud Fontenoy Foundation Annual Gala at the Hotel de la Marine in Paris, France.

While it may be no surprise that the actress donned Dior for this ocean-conservation fundraiser, what was more unexpected was her mannish approach this time.

Her Fall 2013 ensemble, featuring the signature houndstooth check, lost some of its runway attraction when paired with the petrol-blue ‘Santorini’ collarless blazer by Chloé. The cool edge of the razor-sharp jacket was compromised, and Dior almost unbelievably turned into a day-at-the-office look.

She had a Miss Dior bag on her shoulder, but even that couldn’t make up for her lacklustre black shoe. I desperately missed the black-and-white stiletto seen on the model, though I’m glad Marion opted for a similarly bold fuchsia lippie.

You may remember that Katie Holmes also wore this Chloé piece earlier this year in New York City, and I actually liked her interpretation slightly better.

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?
