Just ahead of the opening of the Cannes Film Festival – and the world premiere of ‘Midnight in Paris‘ – next Wednesday French magazine Madame Figaro‘s special Cannes issue is hitting newsstands this Saturday. Guess who’s gracing the cover: Marion Cotillard! The beautiful photoshoot is none other than the one we’ve been anticipating to see more of.
According to a preview of the article – courtesy of PurePeople (view via Google Translator) – the birth of her child is expected before the opening of the festival and she is not for a second contemplating marching the steps for the opening of her new movie – even if it’s the first time she’d have had the opportunity of doing so for one of her own movies en sélection and directed by Woody Allen no less. During the interview she opens up about life in recent months: apparently, being pregnant as well as being home in Paris and seeing more of her friends and family has left her being really Zen – even about being photographed by paparazzi (despite still not liking it). And she calls her part in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ a small one.
I can’t wait for the full interview!
[edit May 6] The full interview has been put online:

Marion Cotillard is on the cover of the new Paris Match in France – together with French sailor Maud Fontenoy. The pictures were taken mid-November in La Rochelle on Maud’s boat. The interview gives us insight into their collaboration that properly took after Marion attended the Maud Fontanoy Gala on world ocean’s day back in June. Check back later this week for more about their collaboration and the actual scans.

Once again Marion Cotillard is on the cover of French Elle. The 8 page feature with a brand new photoshoot looks really great! I can’t wait to pick up the issue and scan it. Here’s the feature on the Elle Website.

I’m back from my internet-free holiday and slowly starting to catch up on everything that Marion has been up to. First up, gorgeous new pictures of Marion Cotillard on the cover of the new Glamour magazine in France. The photoshoot is fresh, young and fun. The article tries to figure out the real Marion and whether her character in ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) is anything like her real self. A difficult enterprise as Marion as usual talks more about cinema than about herself – also we know that she brings authenticity to all characters she plays. Thanks Kelly for the pictures – stay tuned for quality scans whenever I pick up the actual magazine.

After being on the cover US Vogue last month as well as with the other ‘Nine‘ actresses last November it is finally time for Marion Cotillard to grace the cover of Vogue Paris! She was already featured inside the publication last April. But it is more than deserving that she should be honoured with a cover and a 10 page inside feature in her home country.
Just ahead of the release of her upcoming French film ‘Les petits mouchoirs this simply stunning shoot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott promises us to show Marion in Paris and judging from the cover it emphasizes her ‘Old Glamour’ looks – preview courtesy of Dieselmax at the Fashion Spot. The issue hits newsstands on August 26 and I’ll be sure to pick up my issue and post scans then.
[edit:] Interesting tidbit from Fashionologie: “Marion’s [cover] marks the first actress on a Vogue Paris September cover since Nicole Kidman in 2005″
