I added scans from this year’s features in both the UK & France edition of Marie Claire. The article is identical.

Also I found this article about Marion Cotillard & her little world featuring pictures from her childhood & her apartment at the time published during promotion for ‘Ma vie en l’air‘ in the 2005 September issue of France’s Marie Claire. We already had bits from the interview in the press archive, but now you can read the full version. Enjoy!

The second episode of the new Lady Dior Documentary is online! Apart from continuing to show the process of creating Marion’s dream robe and some history of the house Dior we see Marion jumping around & dancing at a photoshoot. I wonder when we’ll see the pictures taken that day. And at the end we even hear her sing.

From the workshops at 30, avenue Montaigne to the markets of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, Marion Cotillard invites us into her fairytale life and continues to write the story of a passion-filled union between fashion and cinema.

Visit LadyDior.com to see 3 bonus videos showing work being done close-up & another Dior history clip.

International Feature Agency have what reads like a full transcript of an official Q&A or press conference. Bits of it have already been used in other articles but it’s definitely an interesting read.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Marion Cotillard will receive the Hollywood Actress Award for her performance in ‘Rust & Bone‘ during the 16th annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala Ceremony on October 22 at the Beverly Hilton. Congratulations! This is the second time that she is named Actress of the Year by these awards. She has previously received it in 2007 for her performance in ‘La Vie en Rose‘.

Hollywood Film Festival founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu is quoted as saying:

“It is a privilege to honor her great talent, as well as her outstanding performance in Rust and Bone.”

This only gives proof that all the Oscarologists predicting an Oscar nomination for her might be on the right track (20 of 21 experts are currently predicting this). The Hollywood Film Awards are the first awards show of the 2012 Oscar season and interestingly, Hollywood Film Awards honorees went on to garner a total of 85 Oscar nominations and 32 Oscars in the past nine years.
