‘Miss Dior’ goes to Hollywood
The new campaign of ‘Miss Dior’ has hit and this time it is Hollywood as the location.
L.A. WOMAN: Marion Cotillard continues to rack up the air miles in her role as a Christian Dior spokesmodel. The Oscar-winning actress — who has already been pictured in Paris, New York, Shanghai and London for the French brand — traveled to Los Angeles recently to pose for photographer Steven Klein at a groovy house by architect John Lautner. She is seen clutching a Lady Dior bag in multicolored crocodile, with a swimming pool and the Hollywood hills in the background. Giovanna Battaglia styled the ad, with Julien d’Ys on hair and Christophe Danchaud doing makeup. The campaign is slated to break in the International Herald Tribune on Nov. 14 and the Financial Times on Nov. 19. French weeklies and December monthlies are to follow.

Mostly ‘Contagion’ Updates
While it is as of yet unclear whether Marion Cotillard will head to Venice for Saturday’s world premiere of ‘Contagion‘ before taping her talk show appearances it seems that the John Cameron Mitchell-directed new Dior commercial is being filmed this week in Los Angeles (source: Ceasar Fernando Barajas). [edit:] According to Terry Mcshane and Alexa Michelle they’re filming today.
If you want to look at a scene from ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ that Marion shot with Gary Oldman in Pitsburgh before finishing her filming and going to LA a bit over a week ago watch this video on YouTube, courtesy of Nickolay. While it is shaky you still get a good look at Marion.
It’s been announced today that ‘Contagion‘ will open the Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland on September 22, 2011. Unfortunately, I will not be able to go (source: Hollywood Reporter).
I added some screencaptures and clips that were released on the weekend and mentioned in a previous update. Enjoy!

John Cameron Mitchell to direct Dior Commercial
John Cameron Mitchell – who directed Marion Cotillard’s Lady Dior short movie in London – ended his Mattachine’s club tour in Los Angeles last Sunday. LA Weekly published an interview with him on the occasion. And there was an interesting tidbid at the end of it:
While in LA, Mitchell will direct his second Dior commercial starring Marion Cotillard.
First look at new Miss Dior campaign
WWD has the first look of the new campaign for the Miss Dior handbag, which was shot in Paris at the beginning of June. The campaign was photographed by Mikael Jansson, with whom Marion has worked with previously, most notably for the August 2010 Interview magazine shoot.
CHAIN GANG: Marion Cotillard’s latest campaign for Dior — co-starring the chain-handled Miss Dior handbag — breaks Monday in Italian magazine Amica, followed by Madame Figaro and British Elle on July 16. A range of September magazines are slated to carry the sun-dappled ads by Mikael Jansson, including Vanity Fair.
Any media related to this will be added to the site next week.

Marion Cotillard Is Part of a (R)evolution
Pierre Rabhi and his ecology movement Les colibris announced last Sunday that they’re fillming a documentary with Marion Cotillard called ‘une (R)évolution‘ which will be released in cinemas in the first half of 2012 together with an accompanying book so that the public gives their all for the (environmental) campaign. The movie tells the story of a profound change in society that has started taking place in 2000. It will show what our world might look like as well as examples of pioneers small and large.
To put together this documentary they’re asking the public to help them with a guide of 35 actions for our environment that everyone can take right where they live. They will be holding 22 forums in regions across France to engage the public. Become a colibri to support the movement and to know more.
Dior Campaign will be for Miss Dior
According to PurePeople the upcoming Dior campaign with Marion Cotillard – which was shot last week in Paris, see recent updates – will not be for the Lady Dior handbag but for the Miss Dior handbag, to be released in stores at the end of July. Have you admired her outfits in the snapshots as much as I? Those were apparently from the Prêt-à-porter Fall/Winter 2011 Collection.
