Marion Cotillard attended the Maud Fontenoy Fondation Gala this past Tuesday, June 8 – on World Ocean Day – at the Hotel de la Marine in Paris, France. The foundation by French sailor and UNESCO Ambassador for the Oceans Maud Fontenoy is determined to fight to save the oceans and protect the coastlines. Read more about their work here.

I will add more pictures when I have more time. Added lots of pictures of Marion in her adorable “French” outfit. In the meantime I added some additional pictures to previous events.

In a ‘Web Exclusive’ Vanity Fair magazine listed The Top 10 Most Stunning French Actresses – among them Marion Cotillard, of course.

Name: Marion Cotillard.
Age: 34.
At her most stunning … surprisingly, in heavy makeup, channeling the passion of French songbird Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose (2007), for which she won a best-actress Oscar.

And it looks like the promotion for ‘Inception‘ will bring a treat: Marion Cotillard will grace the cover of US Vogue magazine. I can’t wait to see the cover & the editorial!

Recent interviews with Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet revealed that they’ve known each other long before they worked together in ‘Jeux d’enfants‘ (Love Me If You Dare). Back in 2001 the two friends were photographed together for the annual Bon Marché exhibition around the time of the Cannes Film Festival.

Saturday, April 7. They value each other, see each other from time to time and share the same urge for imaginativeness, the same audacity. With the laughing eyes of a child about to do some mischief, Guillaume Canet comes up with an idea: to put a noose around his neck! Maybe to better ward off the superstition which forbids to utter this word on a film set. Immediately won over and of course an accomplice, Marion Cotillard took a wicked delight in catching him at his own game.

I added scans of the June issue of Russian Tatler. Many of the pictures featured in this magazine we haven’t seen in this good quality and untagged before.

On a sidenote a heads-up if you are currently in Paris. The big shopping center Bon Marché is currently housing the exhibition ELLEN’Cinema on the second floor – for free. Every year they find a way to celebrate the 7th art around the time of the Cannes Film Festival. Photographs of many actors & actresses – including Marion Cotillard – as well as short films by photographer Ellen von Unwerth are on display May 6 – June 19, 2010.
