Only one more day until the new Dior short movie ‘Lady Grey‘ goes online! While we’re waiting some lovely pics from the making of the movie.
Lady Grey London – The Finale, the new 7:56-minute Lady Dior short movie directed by John Cameron Mitchell and starring Sir Ian McKellen and Russell Tovey next to Marion Cotillard will go live on LadyDior.com on December 8. It was filmed at various locations in London including Brixton Academy and The Rivington Club and features the 1973 hit single ‘Rock On’ by David Essex. Why London? Says John Galliano: “London is where I began.”
Last Thursday there was a Dior Store opening party in London with a private dinner hosted by Stella Tennant at the Claridge’s Hotel afterwards. There are no pictures of Marion Cotillard but she may have attended the event. The new Dior short movie was then premiered at the Institute of Contemporary Arts the following morning after a breakfast of coffee and croissants (source). Chiara from The Blonde Salad attended all the Dior events and posted pictures (last one) and a video (after 8 minutes) from this event – where you can spot Marion at the screening.

Post-screening, Marion Cotillard was a picture of poise and elegance as she humbly admitted of not knowing much about fashion. She said that working with Galliano and Mitchell wasn’t about just fashion, but the transcendence of their creations into an altogether bigger realm of art, and that is what attracted her to the house of Dior in the first place.

“In this movie, there is something that is different than the others, there’s a very strong, young, childlike part of Lady Grey — the way she plays, the way she’s very genuine, the way she does things and she doesn’t really know all the effects she has on people,” said Cotillard after the screening at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts.
“Back two years ago when I was watching the fashion shows and people would ask me things about fashion, I would totally freak out, because I didn’t know how to talk about it,” she said. “But meeting John Galliano…has made my mind open to this world and I now really see it like really true art that makes women beautiful.”

What is it all about? Basically, it’s a tale of a showgirl, sparkle, and the secret stored inside her purse. Read more after the cut if you can’t wait until next week…
Earlier today, Canadian musician Hawksley Workman tweeted:
have had a few great music days lately. in the studio with kathleen edwards and @bon_iver drumming for kathleen’s new record (i’m a big fan) and finished up a song for short film by john cameron mitchell featuring sir ian mckellen, and marion cotillard…

I’m getting really impatient to see the new Lady Dior short movie! In the meantime watch Hawksley Workman’s 2004 music video No Reason To Cry Out Your Eyes with Marion or listen to the 2008 Marion & Hawksley collaboration The Strong Ones.
It’s been one of the last questions before the actual release of the new Dior short movie. Who’s directing it? It’s John Cameron Mitchell – currently getting rave reviews for ‘Rabbit Hole‘ with Nicole Kidman, but more importantly he’s behind ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch‘:
He has also directed a video campaign for fashion house Dior, after being sought out by Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, a fan of Hedwig. Sir Ian McKellen also stars as a wheel-bound suitor to Cotillard, whom Mitchell compares to “a cross between a burlesque dancer, Mary Poppins, and Jesus.”

Watch Marion talk about her love of Hedwig and the Angry Inch in this ‘Nine‘ promotional interview by Broadway.tv. Interesting bit of trivia: Marion Cotillard expressed interest in actually starring in Hedwig back in 2007 (source).
It’s only been days since we’ve seen the new print ad for the new Lady Dior campaign. Now look at some behind the scenes pictures from the shoot – released via Vogue Australia.
The preview of the new Lady Dior ad is out! Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (who also did the recent Vogue Paris photoshoot with Marion) shot her in London holding a gray version of the Lady Dior bag wearing Dior’s cruise collection aboard the London Eye. The prints will appear in December issues of Vogue Nippon, Elle in the U.K. and France, and Vanity Fair in the U.S.
The afore-mentioned online short movie will be unveiled to the press in London in late November along with a new Dior boutique on New Bond Street and a dinner hosted by Dior chief executive officer Sidney Toledano.

After filming ‘Midnight in Paris‘ and promoting ‘Inception‘ in July Marion Cotillard enjoyed a well-deserved vacation in the South of France during the second half of August – where she also performed as Simone at some Yodélice concerts.
Afterwards, she travelled to London to film the 4th – and last – short movie for the Lady Dior Campaign which will also be starring Ian McKellen. Source: Karen Hayley’s Official Website.
Following a stay in France during which she attended a ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ advance screening in Paris (Sep 8 or 9) she travelled to Canada to promote the movie together with Guillaume Canet & Gilles Lellouche (see past updates).
Only days later she was back in France doing ADR for ‘Midnight in Paris‘, attending a ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ advance screening in Orléans (Sep 15, source: Orléans Info), taping her guest appearances on the TV Shows Taratata and Enfants de la télé (Sep 16) as well as attending the U2 concert in the Stade de France (Sep 18, source: U2 France).
Towards the end of September 2010 Marion flew to the other side of the planet to shoot her scenes for ‘Contagion‘ taking place in Hong Kong. There are some pictures of Marion arriving on the set from September 29 on The Sun China.
Stay tuned for updates, pictures and videos from Marion’s activities back in France last week!
There are additional behind the scenes clips of the new Lady Blue short movie – called Sequences – on LadyDior.com.
