Scan of Lady Dior in Shanghai
Added a HQ scan of Marion’s new ad as Lady Dior in Shanghai.
edit April 22: Also added a HQ scan of the one-page version.
So far, I haven’t seen a proper teaser for the upcoming short film – could the new Making Of have been said Teaser? Staying tuned!
Behind the Scenes in Shanghai
LadyDior.com added a lovely behind the scenes video to their website. We get a glimpse of what the Steven Klein photoshoot in Shanghai was like. Marion Cotillard stars as Lady Blue in the 3rd chapter of the Lady Dior campaign.

First Glimpse of Lady Blue
As we learned last December the 3rd chapter of the Lady Dior story is set in Shanghai and features a short film directed by none other than David Lynch. Last week more details as well as preview pictures appeared online. The Print Ads – shot by Steven Klein featuring Marion Cotillard as Lady Blue against the skyline of Shanghai and its Oriental Pearl Tower – premiered last week in Air France Madame and should appear in various fashion magazines this month (e.g. May issues of UK Elle and Harper’s Bazaar).
More details about the short film: Teasers will appear online April 20 and the full 12-minute (!) short film will debut on Lady Dior May 15, the same day John Galliano is set to unveil Dior’s cruise collection in Shanghai. What is happening in it?
In the David Lynch film, Marion is reciting a poem that he wrote, and was inspired by the Pearl Tower itself. The words and building fuse in the picture he paints on-screen. Shanghai is such a vibrant and inspiring city.

He [David Lynch] asked me to dance in front of these red curtains with all this smoke and music… I can’t even put it into words yet!

P.S. According to PurePeople the 4th and last chapter will be set in Moscow.
The Eyes Of Mars – Music Video
I added screencaptures and the clip of the full-length music video for the Franz Ferdinand song The Eyes of Mars which was used for the New York Dior campaign. Marion looks great as a rock star!
Apparently, the music video & the song were “only” a back up option since Marion’s busy schedule made it impossible to film a proper short film continuing the story that was introduced by the Olivier Dahan directed ‘Lady Noire Affair‘. The planned ‘Lady Rouge Affaire‘ short film would have been released at the end of 2009. Getting this gorgeous music video at the beginning of March 2010 instead wasn’t a bad alternative at all, I say!

March 5: Lady Rouge Music Video Online
Check out the official Lady Dior Website for a preview of the Lady Rouge music video to the song ‘The Eyes Of Mars‘ performed by Marion Cotillard and Franz Ferdinand. The stylish music video was directed by Madonna’s favourite director Jonas Akerlund. Until March 5, 2010 – the day the music video will be online – enjoy some behind the scenes stills.
I also added HQ Print Campaign pictures and the cover of the Song. For the new Dior Autumn/Winter 2009 collection, Marion Cotillard is photographed by the emblematic Annie Leibovitz. An encounter between two women in the world’s most theatrical city, New York. Under the sign of the colour red, the brand’s mythical shade. Driven by passion and mystery, Lady Red reveals her many faces
The Mirror symbolic
For a woman with a double life,
Daring by day, femme fatale by night.
The Brooklyn Bridge as backdrop,
Its architecture and complex structur reminiscent of the famous “cannage” motif
Lady Rouge’s silhouette stands out agains the New York skyline.
A femme fatale,
On the brink of taking her place in the spotlights,
Lady Red relaxes before taking the stage.

Wednesday’s TF1 appearance
As announced Marion Cotillard was the guest during last Wednesday’s evening news on France’s TF1. She talked about the rehearsals for ‘Nine‘, about the great rapport between all the actresses, about not being disappointed that she didn’t get nominated for an Oscar since awards can never replace playing a character, working with people, making good movies, telling stories – all of which are important to her – as well as about still acting in French movies e.g. for ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘. There’s also a cute “fangirl moment” at the end when Marion Cotillard is happy to meet meteo-presener Évelyne Dhéliat.
