Do I really need to provide an excuse for posting this photo? It has something for everyone and by everyone I mean me and Catherine. Catherine is obsessed (but not in a scary way) with Michelle Williams, and really, if I am being honest, it is against the laws of nature that they are not… READ MORE »

For last night’s party in Cannes celebrating fancy jewelry company Chopard’s 150th anniversary, Marion Cotillard paired a metallic jumpsuit with a French twist that wound its way up her head, ending in a bang-like bun.
