After last year, Marion Cotillard again attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Annual Costume Institute Gala Benefit yesterday – which opened the new exhibition American Women: Fashioning a National Identity. The event was hosted by Patrick Robinson of The Gap, and co-hosted by Vogue editor Anna Wintour and Oprah Winfrey
Marion represented Christian Dior and apparently also was a member of the Benefit Committee (source).
Both her choice of dress (Dior Haute Couture) and style received praise from fashion websites and put her on their lists of “Best Dressed”:
Long metallic dresses were distinctive standouts for Vogue’s Anna Wintour (Chanel Haute Couture), Anne Hathaway (Valentino), and Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard (Christian Dior).
JENNIFER Lopez, Marion Cotillard and Anne Hathaway ruled the red carpet at last night’s Met Costume Institute Gala in glittering, princess prom dresses. Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard wowed at the fashionable bash in glittering, sequin-encrusted gowns, each teaming their look with big jewels, smoky eyes and styled locks.
First up, the flapper girls. Jessica Alba, Marion Cotillard and Kate Bosworth brought some 20’s chic to the ball with their precision waves, even SJP’s side swept hair was Marcel waved and the flower gave a nod to Hawaii.

Marion Cotillard herself said the following about the American style at the event:
There’s a sense of richness that you have here on so many levels. You have a good mix of the high and the low.
Marion also attended the after party and was pictured with January Jones, Gisele Bundchen, Bar Rafaeli and Harvey Weinstein. According to Popsugar she took off her shoes after all the dancing got to be too much.
