Fugger: Marion Cotillard

Infugtion


This is severely underwhelming.

Pretty fabric, but why is the bodice being so relentlessly awful to her? Did she offend it? Did she steal its lunch out of the work fridge, or eat a tuna melt at its desk and then leave behind a soiled napkin? The droop it’s imposing may explain why her head appears to have decided against styling itself: some kind of cranial protest.

Well Played, Marion Cotillard


She really gets it right sometimes.

I was all ready to give this a thumbs-up.

I mean, I swoon for the color of that skirt, and although the shoes aren’t my particular flavor of gin, they seemed to tie into the outfit fairly well. Plus, you know, neck sparkles! Kelly green! It’s a good life.

Unfortunately, the shoes do have a LITTLE more in common with the top than I previously realized:

Well, I definitely like this better than the ballet outfit she sported in NYC, because at least this is more intriguing.

Look how tiny her waist looks — it might be cinched, it might be full-on pinched, but at least it hugs her shape in a super sexy way that I hope Anne Hathaway is noting for later use. Jessica and I agree that we love the lipstick and shoe combination, and the sexy rumpled hair. We are not entirely sure those textiles fit together even in a fashiony clashy way, although we applaud the attempt at interest. But whereas I had stronger worries about the bodice (will it stay up? Will it hold everything in?), she was more worried about the skirt. WILL IT BE A FUG DIVORCE? … No. But you can mediate anyway.

What do you think?

This dress is very pretty. I almost wish Hailee Steinfeld had worn it.

And I do think Marion is carrying off the white with more authority than Anne Hathaway is — or at least more of an eye-twinkle. But something about the whole effect of skirt plus shoes feels very balletic, and not in the kind of devilish way that makes me want to sit down and watch Center Stage and revel in all the impossible costume changes and leg lifts and awkward cookie deliveries; more like, “Ugh, Black Swan was two years ago and I’m STILL not ready for more ballet jokes.” This is not Marion’s fault, but if the best I can muster — and, admittedly, I am writing this on a plane and there is nothing on but American Ninja Warrior, which is so very inferior to its Japanese counterpart on G4, so I am not in the most creative headspace — is, “Oh, huh, I hope other people came to this premiere so that I can write about something more fun,” then maybe that is a sign she should’ve checked out of the Motel Twee two nights ago.

Is this recirculated canned air making me into a crazy person?

This is a tough one:

I’ve been turning this over in my brain and finally landed on what I’d say if, for example, I was besties with Marion and she popped out of her room wearing this and asked me what I thought. For reference: I look amazing in this fantasy and am both wearing a caftan and drinking champagne. By the pool. By my pool. In the south of France. While Jon Hamm grills burgers. Shirtless. No, wait, his chest hair might catch on fire — in a tight tee shirt. Okay.  (Hey, if you’re going to make a hypothetical situation, make it a good one.) And what I’d say is this:

“That dress is REALLY cute! But are you going to wear those shoes with it? ….no,  I don’t know, girl. I don’t love them with it. I feel like the skirt is too short for you to wear such tall shoes. The proportions are kind of weird.  No! You can totally still wear a wedge. Just maybe, like, an inch or two shorter? It’d be different if the dress were a tab longer. Or if you were younger. SORRY. Sorry.  Jon keeps refilling my champagne, I might be a little drunk. But, listen, girl: it’s too much leg in those shoes, and it’s not because your legs aren’t great, because THEY ARE. I just think…I mean, you know. Do you want to just stay home? We’re having burgers!”

And then she’d change them, or let out the hem, and everyone would be so so happy. Right?
