Last time we checked in with Marion Cotillard on board the Dark Knight Rises world tour, the French actress was experimenting with bold pastel nail lacquers on her fingers and toes. Having successfully conquered that beauty arena, it appears as though she has now set her sights on owning the hair department as well. At the film’s European premiere last night in London, Cotillard’s go-to hairstylist Robert Vetica took the faux bob mastered by hairstylist Odile Gilbert at Rodarte’s Fall show to new heights—literally—teasing the back to create volume, then tucking the lengths underneath themselves and pinning at the nape of the neck to hold. A sweeping side part allowed tousled front sections to hang down in face-framing layers. Suffice it to say, she’s done it again. Wouldn’t you agree?
Ever since Marion Cotillard turned up at the 2008 Academy Awards in that now legendary Jean Paul Gaultier mermaid dress, she has been a staple on fashion’s best-dressed lists. Last night’s The Dark Night Rises premiere in New York was no exception. Besting her co-star Anne Hathaway, who also wore white, Cotillard accessorized her short, ruffled Christian Dior couture dress with an unexpected beauty twist: a matching robin’s egg blue mani/pedi. The color picked up the iridescent pastel tint in the beading on the bodice of her dress and happens to be the perfect complement to the silver accents she worked into her look in the form of a pair of treacherous, silver-spiked Christian Louboutin stilettos. To which we say, well played. Don’t you think?
While Midnight in Paris star Owen Wilson’s performance was recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press at this weekend’s Golden Globes, the ensemble cast went predominantly without mention, which meant the film’s French knockouts like Léa Seydoux and Marion Cotillard were no-shows at the annual awards show. But Cotillard was out and about last night for Chaumet’s cocktail party and dinner for Cesar’s Revelations in Paris—and with an impressive tribute to spider lashes at that. The screen star paired her heavily lacquered lids with fresh skin and just-bitten lips, so that while you couldn’t miss her lashes, they were still subtle in that effortless way that is signature of French women generally, and Cotillard specifically. It’s yet another testament to our personal mantra that a few simple swipes of mascara go a long way. Don’t you agree?
Marion Cotillard has long been a fan of the side-sweep, brushing her brow-grazing fringe over to the right side of her face to accommodate any manner of twist, tie, or tuck. At the Paris premiere of Les Petits Mouchoirs last night, however, she pulled everything forward, sporting a uniform bang and a slight wave that she paired with a berry lip and lots of mascara. Subtle as the action may have been, it definitely added an edge to her otherwise sweet ingenue look—as did that serious, décolletage boosting leather dress. Which style do you prefer?
Christopher Nolan’s Inception debuts stateside this Friday, but we’ve been hawkishly following its premieres abroad. Yeah, yeah, Leonardo DiCaprio and Cillian Murphy aren’t bad to look at, and we loved Ellen Page in Juno (and even more in those Cisco commercials), but it’s their co-star Marion Cotillard who is bringing the glamour. The multi-talented actress has already dazzled in two completely different beauty looks, choosing a middle part, soft waves, pink cheeks, and a fuchsia gloss in the U.K., and opting for a sleek, finger-combed pompadour, nude lip, and black rimmed lids in her native France. Needless to say, we can’t wait to see what the Oscar winner comes up with for this week’s paparazzi frenzy on our shores. Which of her ensembles do you like best so far?
