I’ve added some new movie stills to the gallery – and replaced some with better quality versions. Enjoy looking at pictures of Marion Cotillard’s characters in Taxi, Du bleu jusqu’en Amérique, Furia, La Guerre dans le Haut Pays, Taxi 2, Les jolies choses, Lisa, Big Fish, Cavalcade, La boîte noire and Dikkenek.
As announced earlier, Marion Cotillard’s movie debut (after her professional acting debut in the TV series Highlander) L’Histoire du garçon qui voulait qu’on l’embrasse (English title: The Story of a Boy Who Wanted to Be Kissed) from the year 1994 recently aired on German TV. Paolo was once again more than helpful as he recorded it and thus enabled me to provide screencaptures of this rare movie for the gallery. Marion must have been about 18 years old when this was filmed. Enjoy!
More information about the 7-minute film in support of the Lady Dior handbag: it will debut May 20 and will actually be a thriller starring Marion Cotillard. It will bring to life the famous ad campaign shot by the iconic Peter Lindbergh. So exciting!
Watch a 8-second preview below by clicking “What is she looking at?”:
Gaumont – the company producing ‘Le dernier vol‘ – lists the movie on their homepage with a picture. It’s the first picture from the movie and doesn’t the dreamy picture of Marion as aviator make you want to see the movie like right now?!
Thanks Kit for directing me to an article at WWD.com which talks about Marion arriving for a fitting ahead of the upcoming Costume Institute ball. Read the article in the press archive. There are two things we learn:
1) There’s a new 7-minute film in support of the Lady Dior handbag that will debut on the Internet next month
2) Up next for Marion after Inception “a French film by her boyfriend – and “Lancaster” co-star – Guillaume Canet”
about aviator look in Le dernier vol:
I love that look: the helmet, the goggles, the jacket, everything. It’s very masculine. You feel confident

The Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion, the spring 2009 exhibition organized by The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, will explore the reciprocal relationship between high fashion and evolving ideals of beauty, focusing on iconic fashion models in the latter half of the 20th century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring, the fashion of their respective eras.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Caine have joined the cast of Inception. In all the news of their casting Marion Cotillard’s participation was confirmed. Fabulous news!

I’ve added scans of 2 new Lady Dior Print Ads – courtesy of “vogue28″ and “Flashbang” – one of them is brand new! Also in the gallery a few official behind the scenes pictures (source 1 • 2). I think these are lovely pictures while we await the second batch of Lady Dior Ads.
Speaking of which… Celebrity Hair stylist Ted Gibson blogged about a photo shoot he worked on with Marion Cotillard. Might this be for the new Lady Dior Ads? Who knows…
I was in Morocco for 3 days working with Marion on a fashion shoot that was beyond my imagination. I have never experienced any place like Ouarzazat before It was desert, palm trees, lush vegetation and beautiful weather!!!!!
Marion came to the shoot in a beautiful long sweater, jeans and hair in a bun. Such a movie star!!
We created a very soft, sexy flowing hairstyle with tons of bounce. I used Hairsheet Styling and Build It Blow-Drying Spray to give volume and control because we were shooting outside. I’ll follow up with a picture when the story is published.
Back in February, Marion Cotillard was a one-off editor on an issue of French Elle magazine titled “Green Special”. Today, I bring you Ioana’s translation of Marion’s editorial for the magazine. Be sure to head over to the press archive to read it!
