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.
France 4 & 2 finally aired the Taratata episode featuring Marion Cotillard. She appeared as Simone along with Yodelice for the song ‘More than meets the eye’ and then performed the David Bowie song ‘Velvet Goldmine’ as a duo with Yodelice. And then she was also interviewed. Rewatch the entire episode on MyTaratata.com.
She talked about her love of music and how she’s always had the dream to make music but it wasn’t until Yodelice aka Maxim Nucci pushed her that she’s living the dream. Yodelice was quick to praise her, saying that she’s very gifted and quick in learning how to play instruments by herself. She learned how to play the piano at home when she was little and how to play the cello for a film (‘Toi et moi‘) and now the guitar and bass guitar. When told not to minimalize her talents she explained that it was out of respect for musicians that she’s careful not to over emphasize her musical talents. When asked whether she dreamed of becoming a singer (musicienne) or an actress (comédienne) when she was a little girl she said she dreamed of being in musicals (comédies musicales). This lead to the music video Marion was in when she was 14 years old. She loved the song ‘Petite Fille’ a lot at the time and still loves the band Les Wampas. They joked that they could have a re-union on the show. Marion was also asked whether it’s imaginable that there’d be a solo album in the future and she said yes. The host joked that this probably means it’s already in preparation.
Here are links to things that were mentioned in the interview: Petite Fille (pictures, video), Milord duet with Jenifer (pictures, video) and The Eyes of Mars (pictures, video).

Yodélice’s new music video to the first song Breathe In on the new album is out! Watch the music video on UniversalMusic.fr. It features footage from the studio as well as live concerts – and really captures the atmosphere of seeing the band peform live! I’m not sure whether this is the final version or only a teaser – but for my taste it’s far too short!

Marion Cotillard performed a duet with French singer Jenifer already once on live TV early 2007 during the show Hommage à Piaf when they sang Piaf’s song ‘Milord’ together.
Now, Charts in France reports that a duet with Marion Cotillard can be found on Jenifer’s 4th studio album Appelle moi Jen to be in stores on November 29. The song is called ‘Le clash des brunes‘. I can’t wait!
