On the 4th and 5th of March, and after two performances earlier in both Monaco and Toulouse, Marion took to the stage in Paris, to give life to Joan of Arc, in an oratorio she had performed twice before in 2005 and 2012, Jeanne d’Arc Au Bûcher by Honegger. The performance was slightly different than those of the previous years. The oratorio was staged like a play instead of having the actors speak their lines in front of the orchestra.
There were costumes, more actors than the previous ones and even the stake was present in this version. Directed by Côme de Bellescize, the oratorio counts with beautiful music and angelic voices from the choir as Marion delivers her lines. I was lucky enough to see it on the 4th of March and sit insanely close to the stage and I can tell you it was beyond stunning. Marion delivered a beautiful performance, as did everyone else involved, the entire thing gave me chills. Bravo to all involved!
The oratorio goes to New York in June and Marion will be performing it four nights in a row. If you can, don’t miss it. It’s truly a brilliant experience.
I have added photos of the performance to the gallery and found an interview Marion Cotillard gave while performing in Toulouse in February. Be sure to check it out.

Apologies for the delays in updates these days, I have been incredibly busy with work and don’t have as much time as I’d like to keep the site updated on the go. But I’ll keep bringing you all the latest news on Marion, so do bear with me.
As you know, this past weekend was awards weekend in Hollywood, and Marion Cotillard was present at several events throughout.
February the 20th, the 40th edition of the annual Cesar Awards was held at Theatre du Châtelet in Paris. Marion was nominated in the Best Actress category for Two Days, One Night but didn’t win. She attended the event with her partner, Guillaume Canet, who also nominated in the category of best actor. Marion wore a Dior ensemble designed by Raff Simmons, which had been presented at the last Fashion week in Paris. She was also the one to present Sean Penn with the honour Cesar that night.
On February 21, Marion flew to Los Angeles to attend the Independent Spirit Awards. Although nominated for Best Actress for Two Days, One Night, it was Julianne Moore who took the award. She wore Valentino to this event. On the same night, the Weinstein Company held a dinner for Academy Award Nominees, which Marion Cotillard attended in a short simple Dior.
Finally, Marion wore a white Dior gown to the Academy Awards which was somewhat comparable to the one she wore in 2008 by Gaultier. Same colour and tail on the dress. She has gotten mixed reviews for the look but most of them have been very positive. I thought she looked quite beautiful. Marion was a presenter at the ceremony, presenting the duo Tegan and Sara who performed the nominated song “Everything is Awesome” from the movie Lego. She then changed her dress for the Vanity Fair Oscar party and wore a Giambattista Valli outfit.
I have updated the gallery with tons of high quality photos from all of these events so be sure to take a look.
Aside from the photos added to public appearances, I’ve also added two new shoots. The first one for Variety, taken at the Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon in January and one portrait by Mar Seliger taken at the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Enjoy!

Marion Cotillard has spent the past two days in Manila, in the Philippines accompanying French President François Hollande in a visit to the country to support actions against climate change. Marion has since long been an activist for climate change and has worked with Greenpeace for a few years now. She joined the efforts of Greenpeace in Philippines and spoke in support of better measures against climate change and for environment protection.
We want to share our thoughts on the issues of climate change. It’s not just the climate change but the survival of the millions of people on this planet. [The] Philippines of course, is one of the first countries which are aware that something should be done.
I have added photos of the event to the gallery:
There’s also a video of Marion’s speech on Thursday night. The video is unfortunately in French, I will try to translate it as soon as possible:
Marion Cotillard has had a busy start to the year. She has spent the last couple of weeks in New York and Los Angeles promoting ‘Two Days, One Night’ and shooting a new Dior ad campaign, ‘Esprit Dior’. During these two weeks, she has been to award shows and gave interviews to talk shows like The View, Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Huff Post. Click the links to watch videos of her appearances.
I have been doing my best to keep the gallery updated with all the events Marion attended so far this year. She has shone through all of them and it was an amazing end to her United States trip to receive her second Academy Award nomination, which, in my humble opinion, was long overdue. A bit of Marion’s reaction to the nomination below:
My phone started to ring like constantly and the phone of the hotel where I’m staying started to ring, too. I got a little worried that something had happened and, actually, something happened, but that was a good thing! So, my wonderful publicist called me this morning at five something and that’s how I found out.
These past few days, every time someone would talk to me about a nomination I would make fun of them because I didn’t think it was possible. I didn’t even think it was impossible. I didn’t think about it at all.
When we didn’t make the shortlist, I have to say I was a little sad because I had this dream to take them to the Oscars,” she says. “And today it’s changed everything because I can take this movie to the Oscars and it makes me so happy.
In the gallery you can find photos from all the events Marion has attended.
