Fug or Fab: Marion Cotillard


fug-or-fab

LEONARDO DICAPRIO: Hello. I’m Leonardo DiCaprio. Remember when I was like the Robert Pattinson of the late 90s? Boy, am I glad that’s over. Now I get to make artistically respected movies, and then people kind of forget I exist unless I’m out promoting one, which means I can go to the market without getting trampled by sobbing teens. That reminds me, one of these days I have to tell you about the time that I met Fug Girl Jessica at UCLA’s Spring Carnival, back in the day before Titanic, and how awesome I was to her roommate, who was in love with me at the time, and how this is the way Jessica ended up having a picture of me with her college roommate (we are wearing, coincidentally, matching tops) in her college scrapbook. Yeah. That’s right. I’m awesome.

MARION COTILLARD: I’m also awesome. I mean, no one involved in the making of this blog has ever met me to verify this, but…you know. I SEEM fabulous.

LEO: Generally.

MARION: What are you insinuating?

LEO: I’m not sure about all of this that you’re wearing. It MIGHT be good. It might be weird. It might be weird, but good on YOU because, you know. The French thing helps.

MARION: That’s not very constructive criticism.

LEO: Yeah, it’s Friday. That’s as good as you get, babe.

    This is a mess, and is doing her no favours. There is nothing attractive or salvageable about this outfit (I don’t even like the shoes, but confess that clunky+open-toe is one of my least favourite combinations). Amazingly, this doesn’t disguise the fact that she is awfully pretty. So, perhaps it doesn’t matter…

    Where’s the voting option for “Forget about the dress, I want to see the picture with Leo & the matching shirts”?

    Let’s face it, if this were anyone other than Marion Cotillard it wouldn’t even be up for debate. This is FUG! Marion is gorgeous. However, today she is dressed like Maggie Gyllenhaal.

    I agree with Susan. Don’t tease us, show us the picture!

    And I think I would like the dress if it were all one length. Kind of summery and cool.

    The dress looks like she accessorized a fortune teller’s table scarf with black electrical tape.

    It’s too sack-y. I could like it if it had more shape.

    The lack of shape doesn’t bother me. I feel like she can pull that off. But I hate that hemline with a burning passion. I just want to hack off those two drapey side pieces and make an even hemline.

    Looks like Marion’s wearing a really fabulous tarp, or perhaps a tablecloth. But oddly I don’t hate it.

    Glad Leo was cool to the roommate, but am I the only one who thinks he has not aged well? I am perplexed whenever someone talks about him like he’s a sex symbol anymore.

    Wow. I was not aware that in addition to an Oscar, Mlle Cotillard posseses her very own way back machine which she set to “8th grade home ec, 1972″ and upon arrival commenced to stealing my final project, which consisted of one of my grandmother’s repurposed muu-muus edged in electrician’s tape. My very own “Pretty in Pink” moment way before Molly Ringwald ever took pinking shears to fabric.
    Anywho, I received a check minus for all my effort and was subjected to much guffawing and ridicule from the crowd. The same sentence should be handed down in this instance.

    Marion Cotillard can wear a smart apron of banana leaves for all I care. I would love her if she was wearing a dress made out of killer bees, or a jumper constructed of dead Koala bear babies. I LOVE HER! And I love Leo too. Look at him. He’s gorgeous. He just gets better and better with age. Behold the smoldering stare and the rakish gotee. AND he’s Leonardo Decaprio. These two can do no wrong.

    It’s trimmed in what looks like duct tape. College scrapbook photos please!

    the droopy corners combined with the lack of shape weird me out. if it was drapey, but short all the way around, it would be hot.

    And yes, scrapbook pics please!!!!

    the stiff black trim on the floaty floral fabric is the biggest problem. the clunky-ass shoes with the delicate dress are the second biggest problem. the disquietening hemline’s the third biggest. the fact that it’s not some other dress entirely is the fourth.

    I really dislike this “i made a dress out of two squares I sewed together” style. It is flattering on no-one and just looks like someone can’t make darts but has tricked the industry into thinking this is edgy. And this additionally looks like it was all done with electrical tape. Ugh.

    If the picture was ME and Leo, I would totally scan it, but I didn’t want to do it w.o my college roommate’s okay. I’ll see what I can do, though…. It’s kind of hilarious. He’s holding his sunglasses in his mouth in it.

    Though the muu-muu+electrical tape hilarity is right on, still, for reasons I cannot pinpoint, this getup makes her look younger, softer, prettier, and more natural than I have ever seen her. Pretty as she is, she is usually styled so rigidly that I tend to think of her as from a generation previous to her own. Here, with her freak on, she seems to glow (and I am in wonder at the mysterious power of clothes and color).

    All she needed to do was to belt that giant tunic! Wonder why she didn’t… Maybe she was having a fat day.

    PLEASE ask the roommate, Jessica! We all want to see this! BTW, it’s very cool that you met Leo DiCaprio, especially before he was super-famous. And it’s nice to hear that he was awesome!

    As for Marion’s dress… I feel the trimming looks rather like black masking tape. I’m not wild about the patten, but if it just had different trimming I’d say she’s pulling it off. Actually, she’s kind of pulling it off, regardless.

    Looks like an old kitchen smock run amok, trimmed in black electric tape. Hate the shoes, too. Looking good, Leo!!!

    It’s an awkward dress but the colors are nice and I think she’s working it.
    My real concern, of course, is the story of meeting Leo D. back when he was beautiful! And a PHOTO? Yes, please, I think it’s time for Show and Tell!

    I like it. It has the casualness of tossing a table cloth over your head and calling it a dress. I’m sure there’s a French word for that. I’m a little worried about the slackness around the neckline, it looks like it could wander off pretty easily. exposing stuff perhaps better not exposed.

    I am so biased. I LOVE Marion Cotillard. I have a girl crush on her. Remember that time she wore that sparkly jumpsuit? I hate jump suits but I liked it because she wore it.
    This dress is kind of weird and shapeless, I like seeing her in more classy feminine outfits. I think she makes it work… but only because she is Marion Cotillard.

    I like the solid color lining and black electrical tape trim. It is quite the handkerchief-tunic, but she’d look better with darts, or a belt, something to define her figure, and a less deviant hemline.

    (Le-o, Le-o, Le-o!)

    You know, the color and cut don’t really bother me. And she’s sooooo pretty that it doesn’t really matter what she wears. But some of the details aren’t quite as summery as I would like them to be. The shoes are a little heavy, and I think I’d like a slightly less aggressive black trim to the dress.

    Yeah, I’m gonna need to see the picture of you and Leonardo DiCaprio wearing matching shirts. Though I feel that if it were my picture, I would be posting it all over the damn place saying “LOOK! LOOK!” Obviously you are far more self-contained than I.

    A friend of mine worked on costumes for Gangs Of New York and said that Leonardo DiCaprio has an appendage the size of a toddler’s arm. True story.

    i think leo has aged extremely well. back when he was in his twenties (and i was in my teens)he never did do anything for me, i felt kind of “meh” about him. but now that he’s in his thirties, everytime i see a picture of him, i’m like “helloooo, handsome”. i never would have predicted him to be a man and an actor who gets better with age(to be honest, ten years ago i would’ve predicted that he’d have vanished into obscurity by now), but he sure did.

    also, marion cotillard can do no wrong in my book.

    Oh honey non! Also, why isn’t anyone talking about her makeup? That blush looks like a skin rash, or like something from the x-files that’s slowly creeping up her face to take over her whole head.

    Yes, we must see the Leo college pic!!!

    1) Electrical tape-trimmed hanky, and rouge blotch? Cotillard as college-girl-next-door here has looked better. For example, at other times, she has looked ravishing, ie. July Vogue cover, which is pure fab.

    2) DiCaprio’s probably a good guy and is certainly a great actor (though he can’t be relied upon to pick top-tier scripts); and you don’t have to be clairvoyant to see that if he stays thin, show-stopping sexiness will return to him about in his mid-40s, when his facial bones will resurface.

    3) However, at the moment, it’s all Ewan McGregor for me. Nobody needs to develop a female Viagra for married middle-aged women with small children and career/workplace frustrations. We all just need the universe to post more photos of dapper & fabulously-deviant Ewan McGregor.

    She’s #1 on my gay list…so she can do no wrong! She looks awesome all the time. Leo never ages WTH! I love seeing Leo, but seeing him makes me wonder what happened to all my former crushes. Anyone seen Billy Zane lately?

    Actually I beg to differ. It’s black, short, and off the shoulder. There is nothing terribly striking about it at all. She looks, quite frankly, boring. That’s not to say she doesn’t look nice, but otherwise very dull.

    I would like this a lot more over wide-legged black pants (not so long that they cover up the hot shoes), but then we would all be saying, “Marion Cotillard is so cute why does she have to wear so much fabric?”.

    I know this is a few weeks old and not a contest, but I wrote a haiku anyway:

    Hemmed with black duct tape

    Don’t think there’s anything salvageable here. I’d start over.

    I’m thinking about cutting my bangs shorter, like Audrey Hepburn’s, but I have longish hair. I was wondering if anyone could help me in finding a picture of short bangs with long hair, just so I can see what it’d look like.

    There is no evidence available to support her being a method actor, but her father was a director and mime. This probably indicates acting training in which she was exposed to the method.

    Marion Cotillard films are too good because of her good looking & sexy figure. She know very well that how she should play the her Role.
