Fugger: Marion Cotillard

Well Played: Marion Cotillard in Christian Dior


No, you didn’t read that wrong. I’m not upset with Dior today.

Marion Cotillard

Is it great? No. (Actually, I just noticed… is that a popped seam on the front, on her thigh?) I’ve never been a huge fan of looking like you’re wearing a gown over a tank top, like some kind of yoga Prom. But Marion Cotillard is charming, has on nice shoes, and does a good job generally of selling things. So full marks to Dior for sending her something that’s basically right there on the fence, ripe for her to give it one of her typically classy shoves into the sweet zone.

Fugs and Fabs: The Dior Afterparty


We saw Emma Watson’s effort from this outing, but here are the rest of the Dior girls. Tonight, the role of Charlize Theron will be played by Karlie Kloss (I feel like anyone would be happy to be played by Karlie Kloss, right?).

CFDAs Fug Carpet: Marion Cotillard in Dior


I wish I could have been present for the meeting where this dress was presented:

Marion Cotillard at the CFDA Fashion Awards in Dior (1)

I like to think that it was a charming white lace shift dress and then someone swept in and was all, “I don’t know. Don’t you think it’s MISSING something? It’s so NICE and so SIMPLE and so FLATTERING. It needs something EYE-CATCHING. It needs something RIDICULOUS. We need to see if we can con some people into swooning over something outright ABSURD, because we are DIOR. Let’s give her BREASTS A DUST RUFFLE. I AM A GENIUS GOODBYE.”

It’s a shame, because you can see in this closer shot that the detailing is fab:

Cannes Fug and Fine Carpet: Marion Cotillard in Dior and Maison Martin Margiela


Well, we knew she’d wear at least one Dior, right?

Overall, I feel like fewer people are in Dior at Cannes this year; that may not be true at all, but I recall thinking Dior was all OVER Cannes last year and this time around not so much. I’m wondering if the Jennifer Lawrence disasters are making other celebs steer clearer of it. That is PURE speculation on my part, and in fact, by the end of it maybe it’ll bear out that just as many boldface names wore it as ever. We’ll see.
