“I love New York and I would love to have a place here one day,” said Dior face Cotillard, who flew into the city just for a day. “This is the place where I can really bike, because I actually enjoy walking in Paris. I love riding on the Hudson or downtown but I’ll make my way to Central Park eventually. And at first I was scared of all the traffic, but it was kind of easy and amazing.”

In case you haven’t noticed yet, the gallery for the Bike in Style Challenge Ceremony has been filled with loads of HQ pictures over the last few days.
I’ve added a new article from French website PurePeople to the press archive: Incroyable Marion Cotillard. Basically it’s an article with quotes from other people about Marion, how she’s got Hollywood at her feet. Here the translated quotes:
Harvey Weinstein (producer of Nine)
Marion is a great professional! She’s become my friend because I was captivated by her talent but also and above all by her dogged determination at work and her unconditional involvement in her films. (For the presentation of Nine at Cannes,) I had chosen Penélope Cruz to be present for the screening of some scenes of the film to journalists, but she had to cancel at the last minute because she had food poisoning. Without hesitation, Marion made herself available to replace her. That’s Marion!
She has several strings to her bow. She’s become as powerful as any other Hollywood actress.
Leonardo DiCaprio (costar in the upcoming Inception)
Marion is one of the most talented actresses of our generation in my opinion. She radiates such strength and such energy in everything she does that one can have nothing but admiration for her.
Russell Crowe (costar in 2006′s A Good Year)
For A Good Year, it was like filming next to an angel each day.
Marion Cotillard was one of the selected VIP guests who joined Dianne Furstenberg in a special party to preview the new park on the elevated rail tracks dubbed the High Line in New York ahead of it’s official opening on June 15.

As previously announced, Marion Cotillard as the face of the new Lady Dior advertising campaign and as an environmental activist made a special appearance to show her support for the “Bike in Style Challenge” project. The challenge was to create stylish, practical and affordable bike clothing and gear in support of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s bicycling promotion initiatives, which should help create a greener, greater New York City.
LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (the company also owns parts of Dior) organized the event as part of its longstanding commitment to the environment and next to Marion also Hilary Duff and iconic designer Donna Karan announced the winners earlier this afternoon. Read Press Release
She looked absolutely perfect, with alluring blue eyes, and honestly, could she have looked any more classy?!
[edit:] added 16 more
[edit June 3:] added another batch of pics – replacing many mq pictures – bringing the total count up to 109.
I’ve added the new clips for the Olivier Dahan directed short film ‘The Lady Noire Affair‘ as well as the previous clips for the Peter Lindbergh photographed Paris campaign – all for Lady Dior – to the video archive. Some new Lady Noire stills also made their way into the gallery as well as the screencaptures of course. Enjoy!

I’ve updated the ‘Events in 2009′ category with a few more pictures of Marion we previously didn’t have.
Now that I’ve caught up with all Cannes news & pictures word is out that Marion is set to attend a new event again:
Marion Cotillard, Hilary Duff, Donna Karan, LVMH honcho Renaud Dutreil and first deputy mayor Patricia Harris are expected to be on hand when the Bike in Style Challenge winners are unveiled June 2 at the LVMH Tower in Midtown Manhattan. In support of Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s battle cry for more bike commuting, LVMH teamed up with the Department of Transportation and the Fashion Institute of Technology to round up students to design clothing worthy of a ride to work.

I’ve finally added the clip of Marion Cotillard’s interview on “Le grand journal”, which took place May 18, 2009 during the Cannes Film Festival. Not only that but you can also find HQ screencaptures of the interview as well as an English translation. I hope the translation really conveys the meaning of what was said on TV.
From Gaumont’s Cannes Promo Flyer and Marion’s appearance on ‘Le grand journal’ (caps & clips coming soon) we have 2 new ‘Le dernier vol‘ stills. Have I already said how impatiently I’m awaiting its cinema release?!
Apart from France the movie is also scheduled to come to the French part of Switzerland on November 25, 2009!
