Bike In Style Challenge Ceremony
As previously announced, Marion Cotillard as the face of the new Lady Dior advertising campaign and as an environmental activist made a special appearance to show her support for the “Bike in Style Challenge” project. The challenge was to create stylish, practical and affordable bike clothing and gear in support of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s bicycling promotion initiatives, which should help create a greener, greater New York City.
LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (the company also owns parts of Dior) organized the event as part of its longstanding commitment to the environment and next to Marion also Hilary Duff and iconic designer Donna Karan announced the winners earlier this afternoon. Read Press Release

Dior & Elle Magazine Party
On May 22 Dior and ELLE magazine hosted a dinner in honor of Marion Cotillard at the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc. The hotel’s furnishings were all covered in red Chinese silk and Marion, who attended together with Guillaume Canet, matched the Asian flare of the event by wearing a crimson bustier dress. Here some of her quotes:
Cannes is every bit as glamorous as the Oscars
Being Lady Dior is fabulous. I meet beautiful people and go to amazing parties. But most of all I love John; he’s so unique and creative. I like people who take risks, and he’s the boldest designer of them all.
I get to wear amazing Dior dresses, but I don’t get to keep them,” she smiled. “They all go into this magical archive!

amfAR Cinema Against AIDS
Last week on May 21 during the Cannes Film Festival Marion Cotillard together with Guillaume Canet attended the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS event at the Hotel du Cap. A journalist from the Black Book Magazine was also there and mentioned Marion favourably:
and any crack at carrying a half-decent conversation with the likes of … Marion Cotillard, who takes the prize for grace, dignity and professionalism, is best forgotten. It’s too loud to have a talk.
I’ve added pictures of the arrivals, dinner and after party. Apart from Guillaume, she was also photographed with Cécile Cassel, Mélanie Laurent and Sharon Stone among others. Enjoy!
