On the Cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK December
Marion Cotillard graces the cover of the December issue of UK’s Harper’s Bazaar after she received the International Actor of the Year award from them during the Women of the Year 2012 Awards last night. Check out a preview & a behind the scenes video.
When Marion Cotillard arrived on Bazaar’s cover shoot in LA, it was clear she was approaching the project with as much professionalism as she would if arriving on a Hollywood film set.
The concept of the day? High glamour, couture, rich colour, diamonds, luxurious fabrics, and a powerful, graceful elegance befitting Bazaar’s Women of the Year December issue; the edition in which we celebrate those women (and men) who have touched our lives and made an impact on our world in 2012.
With slicked back hair and smoky eyes, Cotillard models bespoke gowns from Giambattista Valli to Dior. It took the French star just minutes after greeting the team on the day – photographer Ben Hassett, stylist Julia von Boehm and make-up artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua – to slip naturally into the role of fashion muse.
But, while the Academy Award winner undoubtedly has had plenty of experience to draw from for the part – Cotillard is ambassador to the fashion house Dior and was the first to wear Raf Simons’ debut couture collection on the red carpet – she is just as at home in ‘the unpretentious cream sloppy sweater (she doesn’t know or care who by) and brown fedora’ she meets us in when interviewed the day after the shoot in LA’s Chateau Marmot.
With Bazaar writer Lorien Haynes, Cotillard discusses the emotional intensity asked of her to play her latest part in the critically acclaimed Rust and Bone (and Oscar rumours are already swirling), and the challenges of balancing a career as an A-list actor with her latest role as mother to 18-month-old Marcel and her relationship with actor and director Guillame Canet, Marcel’s father, which brings Cotillard to tears.

On the Cover of TIME Style & Design
Marion Cotillard is on the cover of the Fall issue of TIME Style & Design looking strikingly elegant. Order it here. There’s also a really interesting story behind the photo shoot:
To prepare for his cover sitting with Marion Cotillard for TIME Style&Design’s fall issue, photographer Peter Hapak hit the archives, collecting pictures of Paris and Parisian fashion during the 1930s, including the work of famed French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue. Studying images of women in restaurants, chatting with friends or simply roaming the streets of the city, Hapak easily understood why Paris has long been considered a fashion capital of the world. “All of the women looked like they had walked out of a fashion magazine,” he says. “Fashion is such a big part of the culture there, and you can even feel that history when walking through the city today.”
On set in Paris this August, Hapak tried to evoke this era, capturing Cotillard in designs by French fashion houses Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior, along with other designers like Andrew Gn and Dries Van Noten. “She’s the representation of the French woman for me—elegant, but not too stylized,” says Hapak of Cotillard, who won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2007 for her portrayal of French singer Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. “With the cover look, it felt like she was pulling a dress out of her own closet. It went so well with her style, and she felt really confident in it, that you would have never known she was dressing up for a shoot.”
And here’s the interview:

Behind NY Times’ Oscar Portfolio Shoot
UK’s The Guardian quoted great photographers on how they found new ways to shoot some of the world’s most photographed stars.
“We shot Marion Cotillard in Montauk, New York. She was up for an Oscar for La Vie En Rose. An assistant was holding my legs – I was hanging off a cliff. Looking at the photograph, you feel like you’re there. You can taste the wind and smell the ocean. You can see in her eyes how windy it was. All the elements of nature are in this, plus her sincerity and beauty.” – Ryan McGinley
This picture together with over 250 other photographs is featured in the book (448 pages) The New York Times Magazine Photographs, released last Friday.
Madame Figaro – Quoi de neuf? (What’s New) portfolio
Marion is featured in the latest Madame Figaro magazine (27 August, 2011). Quoi de neuf? (What’s New?) portfolio focuses on upcoming French cinema, plays and restaurants.

Marion Cotillard graces the cover of the French Elle magazine on newsstands today. In the interview, she reportedly confides about love, motherhood and cinema. I can’t wait for the interview. Most exciting is the gorgeous vacation-themed 17-page photospread.
