Lady Grey London – The Finale, the new 7:56-minute Lady Dior short movie directed by John Cameron Mitchell and starring Sir Ian McKellen and Russell Tovey next to Marion Cotillard will go live on LadyDior.com on December 8. It was filmed at various locations in London including Brixton Academy and The Rivington Club and features the 1973 hit single ‘Rock On’ by David Essex. Why London? Says John Galliano: “London is where I began.”

Last Thursday there was a Dior Store opening party in London with a private dinner hosted by Stella Tennant at the Claridge’s Hotel afterwards. There are no pictures of Marion Cotillard but she may have attended the event. The new Dior short movie was then premiered at the Institute of Contemporary Arts the following morning after a breakfast of coffee and croissants (source). Chiara from The Blonde Salad attended all the Dior events and posted pictures (last one) and a video (after 8 minutes) from this event – where you can spot Marion at the screening.

Post-screening, Marion Cotillard was a picture of poise and elegance as she humbly admitted of not knowing much about fashion. She said that working with Galliano and Mitchell wasn’t about just fashion, but the transcendence of their creations into an altogether bigger realm of art, and that is what attracted her to the house of Dior in the first place.

“In this movie, there is something that is different than the others, there’s a very strong, young, childlike part of Lady Grey — the way she plays, the way she’s very genuine, the way she does things and she doesn’t really know all the effects she has on people,” said Cotillard after the screening at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts.

“Back two years ago when I was watching the fashion shows and people would ask me things about fashion, I would totally freak out, because I didn’t know how to talk about it,” she said. “But meeting John Galliano…has made my mind open to this world and I now really see it like really true art that makes women beautiful.”

What is it all about? Basically, it’s a tale of a showgirl, sparkle, and the secret stored inside her purse. Read more after the cut if you can’t wait until next week…

Marion Cotillard already mentioned Pierre Rabhi in her interview about ecology with Elle last year – last Tuesday, she now attended a press conference in Paris where the Fondation Pierre Rabhi was presented. There was already a tweet about it but it wasn’t until today when L’Express published a picture and an interview with Pierre Rabhi that we know more about it. Listen to the full press conference here.


The Fondation Pierre Rabhi was created this year to support Acro-Ecology projects for sustainable food self-sufficiency worldwide and to get involved in safety, food safety and autonomy of people. There are 7 members Jean-Paul Capitani, Maurice Freund, Charles Kobloukoff, François Lemarchand, la Princesse de Polignac, Jacques Rocher and Michel Valentin. Farmer, philosopher and writer Pierre Rabhi is its honorary president. The foundation coordinates, among other things, a group of agro-ecologists without borders who then mobilize people with specific skills for the projects around the world, including Burkina Faso, Morocco, Mali and Europe.
