Lady Blue Shangai – The poem: It holds the love
Be sure to visit LadyDior.com for yet another clip ahead of the May 15 release of the full David Lynch-directed Lady Blue short film.
It features the full footage of Marion Cotillard reciting the poem ‘It holds the love‘ as well as some blurry preview scenes and the full credits. And are those the red curtains (around 4 minutes into the video) Marion referred to in the Another interview (quoted here)?
As always some good quality screencaptures can be found in the gallery:

Why Shanghai and why the Pearl Tower?
John Galliano: In each city we chose an iconic location that not only was very symbolic of the city, but also mirrored the Dior canage technique that defines the Lady Dior bag itself. In the David Lynch film Marion is reciting a poem that he wrote, and was inspired by the Pearl Tower itself – the words and building fuse in the picture he paints on screen. Shanghai is such a vibrant and inspiring city – plus it’s where we will be staging our Cruise 2010 collection. I wanted to pick cities that had a link with Dior, as well as a link with style… Dior is global what better way than these collaborations to show it!
Preview of new Lady Dior short movie

The Eyes Of Mars – Music Video
I added screencaptures and the clip of the full-length music video for the Franz Ferdinand song The Eyes of Mars which was used for the New York Dior campaign. Marion looks great as a rock star!
Apparently, the music video & the song were “only” a back up option since Marion’s busy schedule made it impossible to film a proper short film continuing the story that was introduced by the Olivier Dahan directed ‘Lady Noire Affair‘. The planned ‘Lady Rouge Affaire‘ short film would have been released at the end of 2009. Getting this gorgeous music video at the beginning of March 2010 instead wasn’t a bad alternative at all, I say!

Wednesday’s TF1 appearance
As announced Marion Cotillard was the guest during last Wednesday’s evening news on France’s TF1. She talked about the rehearsals for ‘Nine‘, about the great rapport between all the actresses, about not being disappointed that she didn’t get nominated for an Oscar since awards can never replace playing a character, working with people, making good movies, telling stories – all of which are important to her – as well as about still acting in French movies e.g. for ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘. There’s also a cute “fangirl moment” at the end when Marion Cotillard is happy to meet meteo-presener Évelyne Dhéliat.

PS: Penélope Cruz and Daniel Day-Lewis have reportedly cancelled today’s appearance at the Berlin Film Festival. It’s as of yet unclear whether or not Marion is still going.

After Kate Hudson also Marion Cotillard got her very own music video for her song in ‘Nine‘. ‘Take It All’ combines previously unseen footage of Marion during the movie’s rehearsal and actual movie scenes with new music-video-style footage of Marion in the recording studio! The clip is amazing – be sure to check it out!
