Cannes: Moët Lounge + Out & About
I’ve added HQ pictures of Marion Cotillard signing a bottle for charity in the Moët Lounge, probably before or after the ‘Nine‘ promotional event which took place on May 18 – as well as 2 pictures of her in front of her hotel with a friend on May 19.
Further reinforcing its century-long love affair with the international film industry, Moët & Chandon the champagne of cinema, today opens its “Moët Lounge Cannes 2009”, an exclusive VIP hotspot at the private beach venue, Bâoli Beach, in celebration of the 62nd annual Cannes Film Festival.
With prime positioning on the iconic Croisette, “Moët Lounge Cannes 2009” is an invitationonly prestige venue that will host an array of film soirées, cinema-inspired art exhibitions and celebrations from 14-24 May. During the festival, Moët will invite A-list celebrities and filmmakers to autograph 15-liter Nebuchadnezzar bottles for charity, a now legendary cinema tradition that the House began decades ago at iconic film festivals and awards around the globe.

The Chopard Trophy – Party
After handing out the Chopard trophies to the young actors Marion Cotillard together with Guillaume Canet joined many stars for the official Chopard Trophy Evening at the Baoli restaurant – where DJ Stéphane Pompougnac provided the entertainment.
And surprise, she completely changed her outfit: she wore a lovely midnight blue bustier dress (matching with Guillaume’s elegant midnight blue/black suit), a more natural make up, beige high heels and a similar necklace but this time around with a dark jewel instead of a white one. Reportedly, this was because the other dress was torn and it caused her to arrive 3 hours late. But who cares, see the result in the gallery. I also added a few more pictures to the previous Cannes galleries.
Watch a short video summary of the actual Chopard Trophy Ceremony on this year’s co-host Premiere magazine’s website.

The Weinstein Company Celebrates ‘Nine’ in Cannes
I’ve added an article from someone who met Marion Cotillard at the annual Gaumont lunch, where she was promoting Le dernier vol. She revealed her 2008 Halloween costume:

Marion Cotillard celebrated ‘Nine‘ together with the movie’s producer The Weinstein Company earlier today. Her co-star Penélope Cruz was supposed to stand next to her. Unfortunately, she was sidelined by “some sort of food poisoning.” People.com reports:
Harvey Weinstein passed on the bad news to a select group of journalists. He then introduced Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard, another star of the ensemble piece. “It was an amazing adventure, it was my dream to be in an American musical,” Cotillard said. “I really hope you are going to love what you are going to see.”
Weinstein added, “When you see [Cotillard] sing, when you see her dance, we bring back a tradition that we need to do more of.”

Marion arrived at Cannes today
According to various reports as well as the official festival website Marion Cotillard arrived at the Cannes Film Festival today. She was spotted wearing a pink dress. Hopefully, we’ll also get pictures soon.
Marion Cotillard is on the list of invitees for the next broadcast of ‘Le grand journal’ on Canal+, Monday, May 18, at 7.05 pm.
Not only will the Lady Dior short film The Lady Noire Affair be unveiled during an intimate diner at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc next week, also all of her upcoming movies – Public Enemies, Nine and Le dernier vol – are being promoted during the festival’s film market. This part of the festival is not open to the public but ScreenDaily reported that a promo reel for Le dernier vol will be shown. Lets hope that means we’ll get to see a trailer soon!
Additionally, word is out that the next stop on Lady Dior’s journey will be New York. Not sure when exactly the first print ads will show up but the short movie for that city will be called The Lady Rouge Affair and will be released at the end of this year. To see the short movies for the remaining 2 – yet unnamed – cities we’ll have to wait till 2010.
‘The Lady Noire Affair’ Stills
I created a new album in the gallery for all the new stills from the Lady Dior short film. I will replace them with better quality versions whenever I find them. There’s also a (tagged) picture of Marion Cotillard attending an exclusive screening of the short film at the end of April.

Another project with Guillaume Canet?
Thanks Kit for directing me to an article at WWD.com which talks about Marion arriving for a fitting ahead of the upcoming Costume Institute ball. Read the article in the press archive. There are two things we learn:
1) There’s a new 7-minute film in support of the Lady Dior handbag that will debut on the Internet next month
2) Up next for Marion after Inception “a French film by her boyfriend – and “Lancaster” co-star – Guillaume Canet”
about aviator look in Le dernier vol:
I love that look: the helmet, the goggles, the jacket, everything. It’s very masculine. You feel confident
