Does anyone here know what a “Shangai Surprise” is anyway? (I’m aware that Google exists, but I’m feeling lazy.) Regardless, how gorgeous does Miss Cotillard look against the skyline of the city as Lady Blue, the third incarnation of her seriously epic Dior campaign? [Lady Dior] Keep reading »
Maid Marion strikes again! Miss Cotillard is having quite the moment lately, getting greased up last month for the cover of Another magazine, and now gracing the front page of French fashion rag Jalouse.
But that’s not all—the latest installment of the Lady Dior video series is out, which puts Marion in obscure film noir mini-dramas. “Lady Rouge” is truly a must-watch because of its corny randomness. First, the actress is filmed talking to a mystery man (“I saw her!”) while sexily stroking her legs. Next, Cotillard is singing a truly awful power ballad, and then somehow transforms into a scary, scary man from “The Matrix.” Uh, what? See for yourself after the jump. [Jalouse] Keep reading »

Do you use lip liner? Mostly I find it a waste of time, but there are loads of reasons why I should get on the lip liner bandwagon: Lip color has more staying power, color doesn’t “bleed” or feather out of your lip borders and your lips do look ever so slightly bigger when they’re lined. Now for the reason why I don’t wear it—it’s got a bad rep. All I think of when I hear lip liner are those early ’90s looks with the very visible, two-different-toned lips where all you saw was a line traced around the mouth that was many shades darker than the actual lip color.
Well, Marion Cotillard proves, above, that lip liner can be subtle and you don’t even have to wear dark, heavy, matte lipstick to make it work. Here she is, working the red carpet last night with a pretty and chic pout. If you look really closely at the blown-up photo, you’ll notice the lip liner. So how do you make liner work for you? Well … Keep reading »
Excuse me, Grace Coddington approved this? For the November issue of Vogue, Anna and Co. rounded up the female stars of the upcoming movie musical “Nine.” Four of them — Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, and Kate Hudson — are on the cover together, but the overly airbrushed shot makes it oh-so-obvious that photographer Annie Liebovitz shot them separately and spliced them together in Photoshop. Regardless, the beach background is tragic, the fashion makes no sense in context, and they all look like wax figurines. Cover shoot FAIL. [Just Jared] Keep reading »
Have you spied French actress Marion Cotillard‘s new Lady Dior ads? They were shot in New York City by legendary–and financially struggling–photographer Annie Leibovitz. Word is they’ll be plastered all over Paris come Fashion Week. [Lady Dior] Keep reading »
Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard looked prim and proper in her ladylike suit at the “Bike in Style” event earlier this week. However, if you looked closely at her Dior shoes, you’d notice the heels are in the shape of a naked female who is supposedly a fertility goddess. The French have always been masters of the subtly provocative, no? Click through for another look at the shoes with the amble-bosomed (and -butted) woman. Keep reading »
Oscar winner Marion Cotillard lip-synced for her role as singer Edith Piaf in La Vie En Rose, but she actually sings. She and a bunch of other artists recorded songs for Cartier, and if you’re willing to give them some info about yourself, you can download this song and others (by Phoenix, Grand National, Lou Reed, and more) by going to Cartier’s website.

Okay, so obviously The Frisky just loves Edith Piaf and we positively adored Marion Cotillard’s portrayal of her in La Vie En Rose. After Marion won the Oscar at Sunday’s awards show for her portrayal of the French chanteuse, a reporter asked her what song would represent what she’s feeling right now and if she wouldn’t mind singing a little bit of it. The clip above shows why we want to put her in our pocket and take her home with us. [YouTube] Keep reading »
