Marion arrived in LA for Oscars
In recent weeks we’ve heard a lot about the all new Oscars – how the ceremony will be different and especially no presenters were confirmed. Of course it seemed highly unlikely that Marion Cotillard wouldn’t be on the list but we couldn’t be sure. No need to worry though, apparently Marion arrived in LA and is all set to appear on stage this coming Sunday – but even she doesn’t know – yet – which award she’ll present at what moment:
Oscar Week is here, and so are the stars. Many of them are staying at the Chateau Marmont including last year’s Best Actress Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose). I ran into her last night in the lobby of the famed West Hollywood hotel. She told me she’s been so busy making films since she won the Oscar “I haven’t been home in a year!” Cotillard will present an award on Sunday’s show although she’s not sure which one or what point in the proceedings. “They haven’t told us anything yet!”

So be sure to tune into the Academy Awards ceremony this Sunday, February 22!
Even though I have a strict “No paparazzi pictures” policy here on the site I’d like to point out this entry on a Marion Cotillard LiveJournal with pictures of Marion arriving in LA. She looks happy and doesn’t seem to mind being photographed.
She’s also all set to attend Prince’s post-Oscar bash:
Prince didn’t know he was having an Oscar party — until he read about it in the papers.
The singer was in the middle of band rehearsals when he saw a story that claimed he was throwing “the Oscar bash of the century.”
The musician finally decided to host an Academy Awards bash after Marion Cotillard — who won last year’s Oscar for Bestt Actress for her portrayal of a French singer in La Vie en Rose — called to RSVP to “the Purple Party.”
Not only will Prince host, but he will also be allowing a film crew to record the whole event for release on his upcoming website, LotusFlow3r.com.
The party will take place after the awards ceremony this Sunday.

I have for you a clip of Marion Cotillard’s entire presentation at the BAFTA ceremony this past Sunday as well as screencaps of the show. A number of times when a winner made his way to the stage on the right side of the alley Marion could quickly be spotted. I’ve also added captures of these moments.

Orange British Academy Film Awards in 2009
I hadn’t spotted Marion Cotillard during the red carpet show for tonight’s BAFTA Awards so I figured she wouldn’t be making an appearance. Imagine my surprise then when Jonathan Ross announced last year’s winner for Leading Actress to present the BAFTA for Leading Actor – so a fresh & sexy Marion appeared and handed the coveted statuette to Mickey Rourke. I will have pictures up shortly.
If anyone caught any red carpet footage of Marion, could you please send it in?

Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week
After having been spotted in Italy filming Nine earlier this month Marion Cotillard made her first official public appearance in 2009. As the new face of the Lady Dior campaign she attended the Christian Dior fashion show during the Paris Haute Couture Fashion week at the Musée Rodin in Paris (France) yesterday. She looked very elegant as you can see for yourself when you click the gallery link further down in this post.
Read a description of the show on Vogue.co.uk. And here some mentionings of Marion:
A-list celebrities sitting front row included actresses Michelle Yeoh and Misha Barton, Ivana Trump, burlesque artist Dita Von Teese, who said she “especially liked the first half of the show,” and French actress Marion Cotillard who called Galliano “a real artist.”
The actress Mischa Barton drooled over the dresses, while the French star Marion Cotillard said more cautiously, “Not all of them – but the white.” She was referring to the slender outfits that punctuated the full skirts that were very Dior from the 1950s.

Christian Dior & Chinese Artists
I’m actually quite late with posting this but Marion Cotillard attended an event in Beijing, China, on November 15 and I added 5 HQ pictures to the gallery:
The Dashanzi Art District in Beijing became a mecca for star-chasers on Saturday, when a dozen or more domestic and international celebrities attended the opening of an art exhibition.
“Christian Dior & Chinese Artists,” an exhibition by the French fashion house Dior, attracted international film icons, including Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron, French actress Marion Cotillard and Chinese celebrities Maggie Cheung, Lin Chi-Ling and Li Bingbing.
On display are Dior’s designs, including works by Christian Dior himself and the label’s current chief designer John Galliano, as well as works of 22 Chinese contemporary artists that were inspired by Dior’s designs.
The exhibition at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in the Dashanzi Art District runs until January 15.
