Month: April 2009

Another project with Guillaume Canet?

Thanks Kit for directing me to an article at which talks about Marion arriving for a fitting ahead of the upcoming Costume Institute ball. Read the article in the press archive. There are two things we learn:

1) There’s a new 7-minute film in support of the Lady Dior handbag that will debut on the Internet next month

2) Up next for Marion after Inception “a French film by her boyfriend – and “Lancaster” co-star – Guillaume Canet”

about aviator look in Le dernier vol:
I love that look: the helmet, the goggles, the jacket, everything. It’s very masculine. You feel confident

Cotillard Trades Flight Gear for Gown


FLIGHT PATTERNS: Marion Cotillard is trading her aviator look for belle of the ball. The Oscar-winning actress, who just returned from Morocco where she wrapped filming “The Last Voyage of Lancaster,” in which she plays an aviator, was on her way to Christian Dior Friday morning to meet couturier John Galliano for a fitting ahead of Monday night’s Costume Institute ball at the Met. “I’m about to leave and get that dress,” she said after a screening of a seven-minute film in support of the Lady Dior handbag that will debut on the Internet next month. Not that Cotillard was eager to dump her flight gear. “I love that look: the helmet, the goggles, the jacket, everything. It’s very masculine. You feel confident,” she said. Next up for the actress is a role in Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” and a French film by her boyfriend – and “Lancaster” co-star – Guillaume Canet.

Marion to attend Costume Institute Gala

Marion Cotillard has been revealed as guest of John Galliano (Dior) for the upcoming prestigious Costume Institute Gala in New York, which takes place next Monday, May 4.

The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion, the spring 2009 exhibition organized by The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will explore the reciprocal relationship between high fashion and evolving ideals of beauty, focusing on iconic fashion models in the latter half of the 20th century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring, the fashion of their respective eras. The exhibition will be on view at the Metropolitan from May 6 through August 9, 2009.

To celebrate the opening of the exhibition, the Museum’s Costume Institute Gala Benefit will take place on Monday, May 4, 2009. Marc Jacobs will serve as Honorary Chair of the Gala. Co-Chairs are Kate Moss; Justin Timberlake; and Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue. This fundraising event is The Costume Institute’s main source of annual funding for exhibitions, acquisitions, and capital improvements.

Designers in the exhibition will include Giorgio Armani, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Pierre Cardin, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, André Courrèges, Christian Dior, John Galliano for Christian Dior, Rudi Gernreich, Halston, Marc Jacobs for Perry Ellis, Charles James, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Helmut Lang, Ralph Lauren, Prada, Paco Rabanne, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio di Sant’Angelo, and Gianni Versace.

Traditionally, everyone’s wearing gorgeous and spectacular dresses to the Costume Institute Gala. I can’t wait to see Marion’s choice!

More Lady Dior

I’ve added scans of 2 new Lady Dior Print Ads – courtesy of “vogue28” and “Flashbang” – one of them is brand new! Also in the gallery a few official behind the scenes pictures (source 12). I think these are lovely pictures while we await the second batch of Lady Dior Ads.

Speaking of which… Celebrity Hair stylist Ted Gibson blogged about a photo shoot he worked on with Marion Cotillard. Might this be for the new Lady Dior Ads? Who knows…

I was in Morocco for 3 days working with Marion on a fashion shoot that was beyond my imagination. I have never experienced any place like Ouarzazat before It was desert, palm trees, lush vegetation and beautiful weather!!!!!

Marion came to the shoot in a beautiful long sweater, jeans and hair in a bun. Such a movie star!!

We created a very soft, sexy flowing hairstyle with tons of bounce. I used Hairsheet Styling and Build It Blow-Drying Spray to give volume and control because we were shooting outside. I’ll follow up with a picture when the story is published.
