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?
In the sea of red lips (Marion Cotillard, Emily Blunt, Camilla Belle, just to name a few) and questionable updos (you know who you are, A-listers), Dree Hemingway stood out at amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS gala last night in Cannes: Her shredded neon and nude Valentino couture dress was one of the evening’s highlights, and the same goes for her stripped-down beauty approach. She’s definitely wearing a little bit of highlighting concealer on the inner corners of her eyes as well as a touch of mascara, but otherwise she’s barefaced—and still flawless. We even like her visible roots. If this is the kind of fallout we can expect from the runways’ minimal approach to makeup, we’re all for it. You?
