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.

John Cameron Mitchell about Marion
In France’s Tétû magazine from March 25, director John Cameron Mitchell is being asked about his connection to Marion Cotillard. Here my translation:
A word about this other experience: a Dior ad where you led Marion Cotillard and Ian McKellen into a “dance erotico” and experimental. It’s an idea of Marion whom I had met before ‘La Vie en Rose‘. She adored Hedwig, so much so that she was even thinking of performing it on stage. Moreover, her friends from the band Yodelice made a brilliant cover of the song Midnight Radio which is from Hedwig. We’ll see if we can continue to work together.
Simone performed at Olympia last night
As always unannounced Simone (aka Marion Cotillard) made an appearance with Yodelice at their concert in the famous music hall Olympia in Paris. It was her second performance at the venue with Yodelice (after last May) and also where some of the filming for ‘La Vie en Rose‘ took place (one of the most famous Édith Piaf concerts took place at that venue). Last night, Simone only joined Yodelice for 2 songs: she was playing the guitar on My Bood Is Burning and More Than Meets The Eye. Heavily pregnant she seems to have been enjoying herself tremendously. Watch videos on YouTube.

Paris Match Scans & Back to School
As promised, I added scans of the new feature about Marion Cotillard and Maud Fontenoy in the latest issue of Paris Match. Unfortunately, the version of the cover with the 2 of them is only for the digital issue. The actual printed magazine has Prince William & Kate on the cover. So the quality of the cover in the gallery is not the best.
Kindly do not redistribute the magazine scans at another Marion Cotillard fan site as they were scanned exclusively for ‘Magnifique Marion Cotillard’. Thank you.
A few months ago, on October 8 – on a Friday after having taped the Vivement Dimanche show and skipped a local ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ premiere due to being too sick to attend earlier the same week – Marion Cotillard accompanied Maud Fontenoy to the Collège Valmy in Paris for the launch of the project ‘Saving Marine Biodiversity’. Also present were French Ecology Minister Jean-Louis Borloo and French Paris commissioner of education, Patrick Gerard. The Maud Fontenoy Foundation is supplying the educational kit to 7 031 schools in France. Marion Cotillard said that when she was the same age as the students there was no talk of biodiversity at school. Back then, people didn’t realize yet that the planet is degrading. So she encouraged the students to lern about the issue so that their generation can make a difference. Smilingly, she noted that seeing them learn about biodiversity makes her want to go back to school. Watch a video on Bioaddict.fr.

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.
