Orange British Academy Film Awards in 2009
I hadn’t spotted Marion Cotillard during the red carpet show for tonight’s BAFTA Awards so I figured she wouldn’t be making an appearance. Imagine my surprise then when Jonathan Ross announced last year’s winner for Leading Actress to present the BAFTA for Leading Actor – so a fresh & sexy Marion appeared and handed the coveted statuette to Mickey Rourke. I will have pictures up shortly.
If anyone caught any red carpet footage of Marion, could you please send it in?

Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week
After having been spotted in Italy filming Nine earlier this month Marion Cotillard made her first official public appearance in 2009. As the new face of the Lady Dior campaign she attended the Christian Dior fashion show during the Paris Haute Couture Fashion week at the Musée Rodin in Paris (France) yesterday. She looked very elegant as you can see for yourself when you click the gallery link further down in this post.
Read a description of the show on Vogue.co.uk. And here some mentionings of Marion:
A-list celebrities sitting front row included actresses Michelle Yeoh and Misha Barton, Ivana Trump, burlesque artist Dita Von Teese, who said she “especially liked the first half of the show,” and French actress Marion Cotillard who called Galliano “a real artist.”
The actress Mischa Barton drooled over the dresses, while the French star Marion Cotillard said more cautiously, “Not all of them – but the white.” She was referring to the slender outfits that punctuated the full skirts that were very Dior from the 1950s.

I updated the gallery with some pictures from an Louis Vuitton event which took place on December 3, 2008 at the Park Hyatt in Paris, France. Many thanks Mariana for sending them in!
I also added a HQ scan of the Lady Dior ad, scanned by Sandra.

Lady Dior – Making Of & Interview
I’ve made screencaptures of the Making Of & Marion Cotillard interview to be found on LadyDior.com. There are some exceptionally breathtaking shots of Marion to be admired in the videos. The interview can be watched with English subtitles as well.
p.s. The Making Of actually should also help silence the rumour that Marion wasn’t actually on the Eiffel Tower when photographed for the campaign. She clearly was.
Christian Dior & Chinese Artists
I’m actually quite late with posting this but Marion Cotillard attended an event in Beijing, China, on November 15 and I added 5 HQ pictures to the gallery:
The Dashanzi Art District in Beijing became a mecca for star-chasers on Saturday, when a dozen or more domestic and international celebrities attended the opening of an art exhibition.
“Christian Dior & Chinese Artists,” an exhibition by the French fashion house Dior, attracted international film icons, including Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron, French actress Marion Cotillard and Chinese celebrities Maggie Cheung, Lin Chi-Ling and Li Bingbing.
On display are Dior’s designs, including works by Christian Dior himself and the label’s current chief designer John Galliano, as well as works of 22 Chinese contemporary artists that were inspired by Dior’s designs.
The exhibition at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in the Dashanzi Art District runs until January 15.
