Marion Cotillard hit London last night for the world premiere of her new film Inception. The Christopher Nolan-directed thriller is serious stuff, but Cotillard played it nice and easy in a billowing, drop-hem dress from Thakoon’s pre-fall collection. The beachy shape and bold, colorful print pick up the Talitha Getty-gone-gypsetting vibe that was all over the Spring ’11 runways, but the leather trim injects a cool, New York edge. We wouldn’t call this look a total win—we don’t love the chunky black peep-toes and the layered necklaces, and full-press red-carpet glamour it ain’t—but we can definitely appreciate the need to stay cool in the July heat. What do you think? Do you like Cotillard’s loose look, or would you rather she stepped up her game?
The Oscars are blink-and-you’ll-miss-it compared to the twelve-day marathon that is the Cannes Film Festival; the Croisette won’t clear until Sunday. This year’s big red-carpet stories? The splashy debut of a new line—Gucci’s couture collection, Premiere—which turned up on Salma Hayek Pinault and Naomi Watts, and the emergence of Emilio Pucci as the go-to brand for something short and super-sexy (see: Evangeline Lilly). Also noteworthy was the high-profile rejection of gowns: Marion Cotillard and Juliette Binoche both stepped out in—gasp—pants.

March of the mannequins: Industry stalwart Ralph Pucci will create a “catwalk” of his mannequins in Times Square, outfitted by Calvin Klein, DVF, Michael Kors, and more. Great, just what Times Square needs: more people standing stock-still, blocking pedestrian walkways. [WWD]
Lindsay Lohan is expanding her 6126 collection into handbags, apparently La Lohan’s favorite accessory. Style groups include Starlette, Glam A-Go-Go, and Kitten with a Whip.

And now we know: The tux R&B singer Janelle Monáe often sports is a tribute both to Marlene Dietrich and to her mother (a janitor) and her father (who drove a garbage truck). “It pays homage to how they put on a uniform every day and turned something into nothing.” [NY Mag]
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.
