Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture – Printemps Haussmann Christmas Illuminations

On Friday evening, Marion Cotillard had the honour of turning on the Christmas lights at Printemps Haussmann in Paris, France.

The actress wore her third Christian Dior look of the week; on this occasion she donned a black wool coat from the Fall 2012 Couture collection.

A steel waist-cinching belt accented the coat, which featured wide lapels and oversized pockets.

Black satin Dior pumps and a chic updo completed the look.

Many of you are o.v.e.r Marion’s continual Dior run.

We all know she’s the face of the Dior and has been for some time, but this non-stop Dior fest is a bit much, and is starting to feel very much like a chore.

We have had a few breaks where she wore Azzaro and McQ Alexander McQueen, but surely her contract with the fashion house should allow her a little more variety before her red carpet look becomes stale.

You may remember that LeeLee Sobieski wore a similar red version of this look last month to the Dior Spring 2013 fashion show in Paris.

The red would’ve been a far more interesting choice for Marion, who has worn mostly black Dior looks.

When it comes to Marion and Dior do you feel like ‘give us a break’, or ‘keep it coming’?

    No way I’m still loving the partnership- she can pull off these edgy looks with her charm. Considering how badly Jennifer Lawrence is doing with Dior- seeing Marion gives some assurance that the perfect dior woman still exists. She looks classic and chic, even when she’s wearing black- its not boring.

    Simple and chic.

    Marion and Dior? Keep it coming!! But I hope she’ll change hairstylist.

    I cant get enough of Raf Simons, so for me its ‘keep it coming’. after Leelee S., Marion is his best model in my opinion
    j’adore this look 🙂

    I’m so bored of her recent looks. I think the source of my issues is that I found all of the Dior looks from both of Raf’s collections (the 2 collections she has worn recently) very boring and very one-note, which means that I find all of Marion’s looks deja vu.

    I really like this look, every inch atypical Parisian chic. I like Marion in mixture of more in more classic pieces and slightly quirkier pieces from other houses, her colour choices should be wider. Dior should make more custom pieces for her.

    I don’t mind Marion’s Dior promo tour. I just wish she wore interesting ones. And, can’t she wear something that Bill Gayten or Galliano designed? I don’t know, I think Raf Simons has yet to warm up with the “Dior” aesthetic but he’s getting there. He was just used to the minimalism of Jil Sander. 🙂

    Marion is clearly a quintessential Dior woman and I for one think that it suits her so well. If you can be so lucky as to live every moment in Dior, why not?

    My problem has to do with the looks she is choosing, there are so many amazing, brighter, more colourful looks both from Couture & Spring/Summer RTW & i would love to see her in one of those statement pieces.

    Also, it doesn’t really apply here but I have no idea why they’re removing the structure from some of these amazing Dior creations, they were perfect on the runway, the structure

    Don’t love this on her. It was much better on Leelee Sobieski because of the color and her height. Think kind of swallows Marion up and I agree with other statements about her hair styling in this and other looks. Very aging.

    I don’t mind the Marion + Dior combo, but her styling could use some changes, especially hair. How about letting it down once? How about ponytail? She could look younger and fresher. It’s a new day for Dior now. She doesn’t have to look coquettish all the time. I started to think she’s not a stylish person off duty, but her nice figure and sense of duty (as a Dior ambassador) make her always look great on the red carpet.

    Not over it, though I wished she had kept the gold belt from the runway look.

  12. robbie November 11, 2012 at 2:08 pm #

    she looks gorgeous, simple and timeless in this look.

    • tiffany November 12, 2012 at 9:16 pm #

      +1 Amen, timeless is timeless whether Dior or anybody else and she is getting it in this look.

    I’m not over the relationship, I’m just over some of the looks she’s been choosing. This, though it’s not the red, is fabulously chic. I love the coat and waist-nipping belt, I just wish that she had worn more interesting shoes. However, that sack-like thing she wore last week was horrendous. If she’s going to wear Dior then she needs to start picking better pieces.

    In general, I would like for Marion to spice things up a bit. But on this particular occasion she looks divine. Simple, classic silhouettes serve her best.

    The red coat version was spectacular.

  16. Badaboum November 11, 2012 at 2:00 pm #

    Would anyone be annoyed if they didn’t know she is wearing Dior… *eye rolling*

    Dior was responsible for most of the Christmas Printemps Haussmann window displays, therefore she had to wear Dior.

    • lex November 12, 2012 at 11:17 am #

      Not only that, but she looks amazing! KEEP IT COMING!!!!!

    First of all, I’m surprised that you blogging in sunday.
    Btw, O.V.E.R. about this Marion and Dior relationship.

    • Fashion Critic November 11, 2012 at 1:30 pm #

      The EMAs are tonight, so I got a head start on the weekends events.

      • Remie November 11, 2012 at 4:48 pm #

        Well good thinking and this may sound cheesy but I check this blog everyday eventhough there usually aren’t posts on weekends but it’s such a treat when I see that there are!

        • Fashion Critic November 11, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

          thank you xxx 😀

          • jo November 11, 2012 at 7:07 pm #

            haha I do the same thing 😀
            I think she looks good in Dior but it wouldn’t hurt if she would choose something more interesting
