I don’t think I updated about this last year but I did in 2008 and 2007. Marion Cotillard is featured on the Most Beautiful Faces list for the 9th time – this year at #12. This is an international list and is different from your usual Sexiest… lists. Camilla Belle, Emma Watson and Tamsin Egerton occupy the first 3 spots. See the full list here.

The previously mentioned dolls created by Marion Cotillard herself and by Dior HOMME for Guillaume Canet have since been shown in the exhibition at the Petit Palais in Paris with all the other dolls. This is the page for them on the official site. UNICEF’s press release reports that all the dolls were sold at an auction on Tuesday for a total of €285 000. Marion & Guillaume’s dolls were sold together for €4 000. The money will be used to help vaccinate thousands of children in Darfur.
Variety again put up their section “Actors on Actors” as part of their award season special. There’s one where Marion Cotillard gushes about Nicole Kidman.
• Marion Cotillard on Nicole Kidman in ‘Rabbit Hole’, Variety, November 29, 2010
felt what she felt. I cried with her. I understood every fragment of her inner disaster and the way she survived. Nicole is at the same time a rough and a cut diamond. She has a very simple and direct way to enter your heart. She shares her emotion in the most generous way. She is simply one of the world’s best actresses.

And one where Kevin Spacey talks about Leonoardo DiCaprio and Marion Cotillard:
Leonardo DiCaprio. I thought his work in ‘Inception’ was really great. His work in ‘Shutter Island’ was also great. And anytime he’s onscreen with Marion Cotillard is extraordinary. She, also, is incredible. Their relationship is so much the heart of that film — everything he was trying to shift and change so that the ending would be different. It’s remarkable. And it’s such a complex story. If you left that movie to go get popcorn or take a pee, you were screwed.

You know Marion Cotillard has made it big when she gets a shout-out on Glee – the US hit TV series. In Tuesday’s episode 7 of the second series the characters Kurt and Blaine try to talk about something Mercedes wold be interested in as well:
Kurt: Let’s play a game! On the count of 3, we’ll all say our favorite 2010 Vogue cover! 1… 2… 3!
Kurt + Blaine (together): MARION COTILLARD!
Blaine: Oh my god, yes!
Blaine: Yes yes yes! She’s amazing!

Today Vogue also released the Special Edition: Best Dressed of the Year and Marion is on the list – don’t forget to vote for her look!
2010 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards
January 15, 2010
Whether it’s sleek chic or cyberfantasy, silver-screen Hollywood glamour or Holly Woodlawn camp, whether it’s East End edge or East Egg flapper dazzle, from head (artful marcel waves, tumbled-out-of-bed tousle, or candy-floss high-rise) to toe (ballet slippers with dirndls or platforms with ball gowns), the ten individualists whom Vogue celebrates as the Best Dressed of 2010 are gamely rewriting the rules. Or rather, showing us all that there are no rules beyond staying true to oneself.
Since 2003 UNICEF France has been organizing Frimousses de Créateurs where famous designers create dolls which are then sold to help vaccinate thousands of children in Darfur. This year’s edition is called Les Frimousses font leur cinéma! – meaning its theme is cinema.
Early October Voila.fr reported that Guillaume Canet, Marion Cotillard, Isabelle Adjani and Yamina Benguigui would take part. The dolls have now been unveiled – Marion Cotillard designed her doll herself, Guillaume’s doll was created in collaboration with Dior Homme. See them all on PurePeople.
The dolls will be put in an exhibition at the Petit Palais in Paris from November 29 to December 5 and will then be sold by Drouot Montaigne on December 7, 2010. Selected dolls will also be sold by First Luxe from November 29 to December 12, 2010. Source: Unicef France.
Ahead of some very exciting new pictures one more “catching-up-post”. Around the release of the music video for Lady Dior Marion Cotillard was featured in the April issue of Vogue Paris. The interview is mostly about music and how it has always helped her to get in character while filming. Interestingly, Marion used Debbie Harry of Blondie as inspiration and model to be able to portray a rock singer in the recent music video.
Her favourite music artists are among others MGMT, Yodelice, Izia, Radiohead, Otis Redding, U2, Bowie, Franz Ferdinand, Regina Spektor, Hawksley Workman, Pixies.
Kindly do not redistribute the magazine scans at another Marion Cotillard fan site as they were scanned exclusively for ‘Magnifique Marion Cotillard’. Thank you.
I also added the 2 songs from Marion’s movies Edy (2005) and Une affaire privée (2002) to the Songs Page.
This reminded me of Marion’s iTunes Celebrity Playlist I never updated about. Unfortunately, I can’t post a direct link as I have no access to the US Store of iTunes. But here’s the information:
Added loads of scans from 2010 magazine features about Marion Cotillard to the gallery. Many thanks to Elmira and Kelly for most of these.
One of the clippings is from a January Australian InStyle issue and their “20 Best Dressed Women of 2009″ list where Marion came in on #2.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day today Vanity Fair asked environmentally conscious individuals, among them Marion, to make a wish for a greener world. Here’s the video:
Before looking ahead let’s quickly review where Marion’s been in the last weeks:
November 14-16 she attended public ‘Nine‘ events in New York. Afterwards she did some ‘Nine‘ promotion in Los Angeles before returning to Paris, France. In the first week of December she was in Shanghai with David Lynch to shoot a short movie for Dior (thus missing the London ‘Nine‘ premiere). She returned to Paris, France last week where she started doing ‘Le dernier vol‘ promotion. Most notably on TV last Wednesday and yesterday but of course also behind the scenes. Places she could have gone as well – if she could be in two places at the same time – are the ‘Nine‘ premieres in Dubai and Los Angeles as well as the ‘Public Enemies‘ premiere in Japan. Due to Marion’s and Guillaume’s commitments there will be no ‘Le dernier vol‘ premiere this week in France (source: director Karim Dridi on official Facebook page).
What lies ahead? Marion is travelling to New York now.
