March 5: Lady Rouge Music Video Online
Check out the official Lady Dior Website for a preview of the Lady Rouge music video to the song ‘The Eyes Of Mars‘ performed by Marion Cotillard and Franz Ferdinand. The stylish music video was directed by Madonna’s favourite director Jonas Akerlund. Until March 5, 2010 – the day the music video will be online – enjoy some behind the scenes stills.
I also added HQ Print Campaign pictures and the cover of the Song. For the new Dior Autumn/Winter 2009 collection, Marion Cotillard is photographed by the emblematic Annie Leibovitz. An encounter between two women in the world’s most theatrical city, New York. Under the sign of the colour red, the brand’s mythical shade. Driven by passion and mystery, Lady Red reveals her many faces
The Mirror symbolic
For a woman with a double life,
Daring by day, femme fatale by night.
The Brooklyn Bridge as backdrop,
Its architecture and complex structur reminiscent of the famous “cannage” motif
Lady Rouge’s silhouette stands out agains the New York skyline.
A femme fatale,
On the brink of taking her place in the spotlights,
Lady Red relaxes before taking the stage.

New Lady Dior video next week
The new short film for Lady Dior will premiere online next week on January 14:
Meanwhile, Dior ambassador Marion Cotillard, who has been winning plaudits for her singing and acting chops in “Nine,” tests out her pipes for the French house in a music video making its debut on the Internet Jan. 14. Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand wrote the music and lyrics for “Lady Rouge,” the latest installment in an online saga built around the iconic Lady Dior handbag. This musical episode, set in New York City, has Cotillard portraying a working woman who transforms into a torch singer at night, appearing from behind a velvet curtain to belt one out. Cotillard featured earlier on ladydior.com in the short thriller “The Lady Noire Affair,” directed by Olivier Dahan, with a forthcoming installment by filmmaker David Lynch that was shot recently in Shanghai.

So exciting! Remember how Dior specifically pointed out the music score on the table which can be seen on the first New York ad on Twitter.
Dior is the the French’s favourite ad campaign
L’association pour la promotion de la presse magazine (APPM) has lanced an award to reward the French’s favourite magazine ad campaign each month. The first award, for the month of September 2009, was handed out to Dior featuring Marion Cotillard based on the campaign getting 62 % of the votes. Words attributed to the ad were sensibility, refinement, charm, chic/style, class, delicacy, elegance, femininity, glamour. Moreover, the ad makes 52% of France’s citizens want to “experience the Dior label”. (Source)

2nd New York Lady Dior Ad
A brand new Lady Dior Ad! On the last page of the September issue of Vogue Paris I found this ad with a very glamourous Marion Cotillard as Lady Red in New York. I added a HQ scan to the gallery.
So far, I spotted New York Lady Dior ads (the first version) in the UK September issues of Elle and Harper’s Bazaar.
Lady Dior – Behind the Scenes
I organized the pictures of Marion as the face of Lady Dior in a way that they are hopefully easier to find. Additionally, I replaced all the previous Behind the scenes pictures from The Lady Noire Affair video with HQ ones plus added many new ones!
Also the first behind the scenes pictures for the New York campaign – starring Marion as Lady Rouge – have surfaced! Enjoy!
