Hawksley Workman for Lady Grey
Earlier today, Canadian musician Hawksley Workman tweeted:

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.
‘Hedwig’ Director for Lady Grey
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).

Timeline and News about Lady Dior & ‘Contagion’
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!

Additional Pictures of Lady Dior in Paris
Ahead of Saturday’s release of the new Lady Dior short movie set in Shanghai (and related publicity for that) some additional pictures of the campaign’s first chapter – set in Paris. At the time there was an article about the Print Ads shot by Peter Lindbergh in Madame Figaro. And a bit later some photographers spotted Marion Cotillard and Olivier Dahan in the streets of Paris on the set of the short movie Lady Noire Affair.
