WWD just posted the preview of the new Lady Dior ad. Isn’t it fabulous? The new ad campaign really comes full circle as it is once more set in Paris and was shot by Peter Lindbergh who already shot Marion for her first ever Dior Ad Paris – Lady Noire (and for Italian Vogue & Chopard promotion back in 2008).
OSCAR PARTY: Christian Dior is the latest fashion player to have infiltrated the Communist Party Headquarters in Paris. Site of a Prada party, and fashion shows for Dries Van Noten and Thom Browne, the landmark Oscar Niemeyer-designed building serves as a dramatic backdrop for the Lady Dior bag and its Oscar-winning ambassador, Marion Cotillard. In it, she clutches a new version of the handbag in crocodile and raffia: the texture echoed in the thousands of metal slats on the domed ceiling of its circular conference room. The ads, lensed by Peter Lindbergh, are slated to break in a range of May fashion magazines, including Tatler, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Elle, W, French Vogue and Madame Figaro.
Dior have also uploaded the actual Making Of both the print campaign by Steven Klein and the short film by John Cameron Mitchell. We learn that it is the first comedy in the series of Dior short films and that it is inspired by this 1973 short film by Richard Avedon and starring Lauren Hutton. I can’t wait to see the full L.A.dy Dior short film on December 13!
Dior just uploaded a teaser of the forthcoming John Cameron Mitchel-directed short film starring Marion Cotillard that is taking place in Los Angeles. Interestingly, this seems to be for Lady Dior again, not Miss Dior.
The new campaign of ‘Miss Dior’ has hit and this time it is Hollywood as the location.
L.A. WOMAN: Marion Cotillard continues to rack up the air miles in her role as a Christian Dior spokesmodel. The Oscar-winning actress — who has already been pictured in Paris, New York, Shanghai and London for the French brand — traveled to Los Angeles recently to pose for photographer Steven Klein at a groovy house by architect John Lautner. She is seen clutching a Lady Dior bag in multicolored crocodile, with a swimming pool and the Hollywood hills in the background. Giovanna Battaglia styled the ad, with Julien d’Ys on hair and Christophe Danchaud doing makeup. The campaign is slated to break in the International Herald Tribune on Nov. 14 and the Financial Times on Nov. 19. French weeklies and December monthlies are to follow.
While it is as of yet unclear whether Marion Cotillard will head to Venice for Saturday’s world premiere of ‘Contagion‘ before taping her talk show appearances it seems that the John Cameron Mitchell-directed new Dior commercial is being filmed this week in Los Angeles (source: Ceasar Fernando Barajas). [edit:] According to Terry Mcshane and Alexa Michelle they’re filming today.
If you want to look at a scene from ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ that Marion shot with Gary Oldman in Pitsburgh before finishing her filming and going to LA a bit over a week ago watch this video on YouTube, courtesy of Nickolay. While it is shaky you still get a good look at Marion.
