Collecting nominations for her latest film Two Days, One Night and starring in the upcoming adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth, Marion Cotillard is finally making a comeback to leading roles. Not stopping at movies, Marion Cotillard is also exploring her musical talents, having toured with French rock band Yodelice and recorded a song and video with British band Metronomy.

After launching their online magazine earlier this year, Dior are now launching a print magazine – and Marion Cotillard is on the cover of its first issue. WWD reports it but since I can’t access it here a few quotes courtesy of Fashion Copious:

– Available September 10th.
– The 110 page debut issue was designed by Fabien Baron.
– Marion Cotillard is “wearing the house’s original Bar jacket and flaring skirt from 1947”

Dior chief executive officer Sidney Toledano said such communication efforts nourish the brand, feed its narrative and help articulate “the values of Dior, which are different from our competitors.…It’s important today to differentiate ourselves.”

“It’s another way to communicate luxury,” said Toledano, flipping through the heavy, velvety pages and stressing, “This is not a catalogue. It’s fresh and modern. It’s how we see ourselves; our own maison. I think it translates perfectly the mood of the company right now.”

Vogue Germany reports that it will be published twice a year (September and March) in 9 different languages (among them English, French, Chinese and German).

We’re being hit with loads of news. The 56th BFI London Film Festival (October 10-21) unveiled their line-up earlier today – and guess what, ‘Rust & Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) is on it. Not only that, it is also competing in the category Official Competition. There are 12 films in each of the 3 competitive categories. There are 2 screenings:

Saturday, October 13, 2012 at 8:30 PM
Sunday, October 14, 2012 12:30 PM

The festival’s comment to the plot synopsis of the “unpitchable” film is:

That such potentially lurid material is explored with subtlety and emotional complexity is tribute not only to Audiard, but to his extraordinary leads. Marion Cotillard is mesmerising in arguably her most challenging role yet, while up-and-comer Schoenaerts impresses mightily as an apparent lunk suddenly forced to look for his hidden resources. Rust and Bone is as punchy and abrasive as its title suggests – but intensely moving and surprisingly poetic too.

Additionally, Variety reports that Marion herself will be participating in a Screen Talk during the festival.

After nearly 2 years (22 months) I was finally starting to get bored with the previous layout – however gorgeous it was. So Mel from Vintage Dreams designed the new look for the main site, the gallery & the video archive with pictures from the recent Grazia feature. Also a big thank you to Laura for her help with the video templates. I hope there aren’t any bugs – otherwise let me know.

I also started working on updating the information pages – while I’m by no means done yet, you can check out the progress over the coming weeks. In the meantime, how do you like the new look?
