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:

022 Various Clippings
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.
