Lady Dior – Making Of & Interview
I’ve made screencaptures of the Making Of & Marion Cotillard interview to be found on LadyDior.com. There are some exceptionally breathtaking shots of Marion to be admired in the videos. The interview can be watched with English subtitles as well.
p.s. The Making Of actually should also help silence the rumour that Marion wasn’t actually on the Eiffel Tower when photographed for the campaign. She clearly was.
First peek at Lady Dior campaign
Via WWD.com comes the first image of Marion Cotillard in the recently announced Lady Dior bag campaign. I really like it:
Marion Cotillard, who won an Oscar for her portrayal of French songbird Edith Piaf in “La Vie en Rose,” was taken high above Paris for her latest role: as the face of a “cinematic” new campaign for the Lady Dior handbag. Perched on top of the Eiffel Tower, its intricate metalwork echoing the canework pattern on the iconic tote, Cotillard posed for photographer Peter Lindbergh wearing an enigmatic expression — and a sexy black number by John Galliano from the spring collection. The spots are slated to break at month’s end in France and the U.K. and are the first in a four-part series, with Paris being only the first city and chapter. Further details about her next adventure, and what precious cargo she’s carrying, are to be revealed on a forthcoming Web site: LadyDior.com, which is set to go live in mid-November. The campaign will run twice a year.
New face of Lady Dior bag
GlamourParis reports that Marion Cotillard has been signed as the new face of the famous Lady Dior bag. The campaign will be shot by talented photographer Peter Lindbergh. Remember, he’s a friend of Marion’s and brought us the pictures in the Italian Vogue as well as the Chopard promotion pictures that appeared e.g. in Elle Oriental.
Here’s an English news post from WWD.com:
Leave it to Christian Dior to add an Oscar-winning actress to its stable of famous faces. Rumor has it Marion Cotillard, star of “La Vie en Rose,” has been tapped as the new face of the perennially popular Lady Dior bag, which was introduced in 1995 and famously carried by the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Look out for the first campaign image featuring Cotillard later this year. Among other famous women who have carried the Lady Dior in advertising are Monica Bellucci, Diane Kruger and Carla Bruni, now the First Lady of France.
