Dior just unveiled its latest Lady Dior campaign with Marion Cotillard, “Lady Blue,” which finds the actress (and her covetable bag, of course) in Shanghai, where John Galliano will unveil his cruise collection on May 15. Steven Klein lensed the campaign and David Lynch shot an accompanying video, which features Cotillard reciting a poem he wrote inspired the city’s Oriental Pearl Tower. Of course.
Damage was reported to a French national treasure: Culture minister Frédéric Mitterand accidentally stabbed Marion Cotillard with her medal when awarding her the Chevalier of Arts and Letters yesterday. Luckily, she’s fine. [Vogue U.K.]
ABBA, Genesis, and the Stooges were among the groups inducted into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame yesterday. In the service of punk rock fashion, Stooges frontman Iggy Pop didn’t even wait until the ceremony was over to remove his shirt. [NYT]
Lessons from designers’ vacations, part I: As Francisco Costa learned in Australia, “Skull! Skull! Skull!” is Aussie-speak for “take that shot of vodka.” Huh! [WWD]
Lessons from designers’ vacations, part II: As Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos discovered while skiing in Colorado, slope delicacies include chili cheese dogs and cheeseburger-flavored Doritos. No word on how those go with a skull of vodka. [Refinery29]
Yesterday, we caught the first glimpse of Marion Cotillard as “Lady Rouge” in her latest campaign for the Lady Dior bag. Here’s your first look at the whole video, with Cotillard crooning Franz Ferdinand’s “The Eyes of Mars.” Our first thought: better than Nine!
Marion Cotillard’s campaigns for Christian Dior to date have emphasized the screen siren’s ladylike beauty, so it’s a nice change to see her tapping into her masculin side in the next video, which goes up at www.ladydior.com this Friday. Cotillard takes a page from the book of Franz Ferdinand (who composed a song, “Eyes of Mars,” for her to sing in the Jonas Åkerlund-directed short) and suits up—in Dior, of course. The house gave us a sneak peek, above.
Forgive Hollywood for looking bleary-eyed this morning: The whole town’s been up since around 5 a.m. for the 2010 Academy Award nominations. Anne Hathaway and Academy president Tom Sherak made the official announcements shortly before 6 a.m. Pacific time, and the race for the gold is officially on. (As Best Actress nominee Gabourey Sidibe told an interviewer, “I’ve been avoiding the Oscar question for a year, and now I can talk about it!” Her mom’s advice—”act like a serious 26-year-old”—didn’t preclude a joyous yelp of “O.M.G.!”)
A few surprises are sprinkled throughout—Maggie Gyllenhaal got the nod for Best Supporting Actress for Crazy Heart, edging out Marion Cotillard in Nine, and we for one will be thrilled to see her prominently on the red carpet this March—and the new, ten-nominee list for Best Picture means that some deserving but otherwise unlikely candidates are up for the top prize. (Is it wrong that we’re kinda rooting for District 9 for Best Picture?) Check out the nominees below and sound off in the comments.
