New face of Lady Dior bag
GlamourParis reports that Marion Cotillard has been signed as the new face of the famous Lady Dior bag. The campaign will be shot by talented photographer Peter Lindbergh. Remember, he’s a friend of Marion’s and brought us the pictures in the Italian Vogue as well as the Chopard promotion pictures that appeared e.g. in Elle Oriental.
Here’s an English news post from WWD.com:
Leave it to Christian Dior to add an Oscar-winning actress to its stable of famous faces. Rumor has it Marion Cotillard, star of “La Vie en Rose,” has been tapped as the new face of the perennially popular Lady Dior bag, which was introduced in 1995 and famously carried by the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Look out for the first campaign image featuring Cotillard later this year. Among other famous women who have carried the Lady Dior in advertising are Monica Bellucci, Diane Kruger and Carla Bruni, now the First Lady of France.

Remember back in February when we linked to an article about Hawksley Workman that mentioned him having “spent some time in Los Angeles working and writing songs with Golden Globe winning actress Marion Cotillard”? Well, these new songs for Cartier LOVE (Hawksley also recorded an original song) could really be the result. I found this on HawksleyWorkman.com:
While you’re there, make sure you also check out Oscar winner Marion Cotillard’s Hawksley-produced effort “The Strong Ones”.
Also, could it be that it’s him who’s providing the background vocals on Marion’s track?
To find out what exactly those LOVE bracelets are that all of these songs are advertising check out this article at Paste Magazine. And if you have trouble downloading the song from the Cartier website go here.
How far would you go for love?
Wow wow wow! This is all I can say! Marion Cotillard has recorded an exclusive song for Cartier LOVE. The new worldwide campaign is launched today and Marion’s amazing track called ‘The Strong Ones’ is available for download on the official website: Love.Cartier.Com. Be sure to visit the site, go to the section Music and to click Marion’s picture, where you’ll find a link to listen to and/or download the song. And if you’re lucky you’ll be hearing Marion’s enchanting voice upon first visiting the site.
Information about the campaign: Parts of the proceeds from the LOVE project go to different charity organizations around the world that Cartier are involved with. Watch a preview of the campaign on YouTube (no Marion there, unfortunately).
