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?

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?
