There were many more articles/interviews posted from Toronto International Film Festival (and one belatedly from Telluride Film Festival) over the past few days. Videos are also slowly emerging. Apart from the ones added today there’s a sneak peak of what looks like a great & funny video with Marion Cotillard & Matthias Schoenaerts. Can’t wait for the full version!
The first episode of the new Lady Dior Documentary is online! See Marion Cotillard overseeing the designing, cutting, fitting and sewing for dresses to be worn by her at Dior’s haute couture workshops. Enjoy!
Visit LadyDior.com to see 3 bonus videos showing work being done close-up & the view from the workshop.
And Dior released a teaser for the forthcoming Lady Dior Documentary – which we now know will have 7 (!) episodes. Can’t wait for the first one to be online on Wednesday. New episodes will be published every two weeks through December (source).
Our Lady Mystery is none other than the incomparable Marion Cotillard. In seven exclusive reports, she gives us a sneak peek into the whirlwind that is her artist’s life, from photo shoots to fittings.Our Lady in Dior will await you here, in two days’ time, for the first episode in the series.
Marion Cotillard graced the cover of the 100th issue of French Glamour in July as well as of the Spanish August issue. I didn’t manage to make original scans of the French issue but did so of the Spanish one. Also check out our recent Magazine Wrap-Up post as I posted all the scans and articles etc from the recent Vogue, Elle and Grazia covers.
I recently fixed one of the videos of Marion Cotillard joining Maud Fontenoy & 300 kids on high sea as godmother of the Maud Fontenoy Fondation. Also La Chaîne de Cœur released a more extensive video about the successful collaboration between the Public Aid Association, the municipality of La Rochelle and the Maud Fontenoy Fondation – in fact they will repeat the experience next summer. I added screencaptures from the video as well as more photos from the event.
On another note, there are rumours that ‘Rust & Bone‘ will screen during the notoriously secretive Telluride Film Festival this weekend (August 31 – September 3) ever since Hollywood Elsewhere reported that there will be festival tributes for Mads Mikkelsen and Marion Cotillard. How exciting would that be?!
Marion Cotillard was in La Rochelle (France) yesterday. She joined her friend Maud Fontenoy who with her foundation – of which Marion is the godmother – organized a huge event for kids between 9 and 12 from all over France who had never seen the sea and never been on a boat before. For 30 years the Public Aid Association in France is organizing “The Days for the Ones Forgotten by the Holidays” (La Journée des oubliés des vacances). This year La Rochelle hosted the 4 day event and joined forces with Maud Fontenoy Fondation. The activities included visits to the aquarium as well as to the maritime museum and swimming.
On Monday, Marion joined Maud on her boat Tahia – with which she had sailed around the world – and together with about 50 boats from people supporting the action they took the 300 kids out to sea. NewCastWire, BFMTV.com and TF1 reported about it. And here’s an article from SudOuest.
After the screening of the movie the ‘De rouille et d’os‘ cast & crew headed to the Dior & ELLE Magazine party held this year in the movie’s honor. Marion Cotillard met up with Berenice Bejo, Michel Hazanavicius, Alec Baldwin and what looks like the friend of Edith Piaf, Ginou Richer, and showed people pictures on her phone – probably of her son Marcel who’s just turned 1 this weekend.
