Marion Cotillard is Worst Dressed of the Week in Christian Dior Couture

OK, here’s a red carpet look we’re so baffled by, that an eerie silence took over HQ when we laid eyes on it. Marion Cotillard, faithfully upholding her Dior duties, sported the oddest Christian Dior dress from the fall 2013 couture collection at the Waltz with Monica photo call in Morocco, earlier this week. The usually impeccable Marion wore a floor-length striped orange-and-blue gown, with a blue asymmetrical overlay. Going accessory-free, Marion opted for black pointed pumps, and a slick of black polish on her nails. Make-up was simple, with kohl-lined eyes; and swept back hair with glossy bangs rounded off her red carpet appearance. Sadly, this look does absolutely nothing for Marion, and its unflattering silhouette only adds to our worst dressed woes. The high neckline isn’t at all flattering, and we’re still wondering how this look could possibly constitute couture…! What do you think of Marion’s look? We get that couture seeks to push design boundaries, but is this look just overdoing it a bit? Share your thoughts below. [Image]

Marion Cotillard is Worst Dressed of the Week in Christian Dior

Last Updated on 26th October 2013 We’re not fans of dismissing a to-die-for Dior look, but Marion Cotillard gave us good reason to temporarily detour from our devout appreciation of the luxury fashion house. Slipping into a cocoon back dazzler of a dress – fresh off the spring/summer 2014 runway – Marion appeared at ELLE’s 20th Annual Women in Hollywood bash, held in Los Angeles earlier this week, and on all counts of styling, we just weren’t impressed by this grey red carpet effort! Not only did the silhouette appear frumpy, but the look screamed “effortless styling” for all the wrong reasons. A sharp Dior dress, the kind we’re used to seeing Marion sporting, would’ve been just fine! And not only that, but we’re pretty convinced those Dior ankle-tie sandals are a camouflage tactic, because they do a great job of blending into the grey carpet beneath! Emulating much of the runway look, Marion went accessory free, and opted to wear her hair in a low, centre-parted bun – a hairdo that seemed more suited to a saintly Valentino look, than a standout dress like this one. Although you never sartorially disappoint, Mademoiselle Cotillard, this one’s definitely for the ‘ditch’ pile. What do you think of Marion’s look? [Image]

Reese Witherspoon, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz and more for Elle US Women in Hollywood November

Last Updated on 11th October 2013 Elle magazine has got one heck of a treat for us this month, as the Elle US Women in Hollywood issue – which last year was fronted by Miss Sarah Jessica Parker – has once again come around. This year, the gorgeous girls featured on the numerous covers are, in no particular order of awesomeness: Reese Witherspoon, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Shailene Woodley, Naomie Harris, and Melissa McCarthy. They were all shot by Thomas Whiteside, apart from Penelope Cruz who was photographed by Nico. It’s tough choosing a favourite but we think Marion Cotillard is one of the frontrunners purely for the simplicity of the cover. What say you? Wearing a Dior bra top and wool shorts – and not much else, save for some David Yurman bracelets – Marion opens up about a number of different subjects, including the reason she wanted to become an actress… “When I was a kid, I started to have a lot of questions about human beings, and I was a troubled child because of all of these questions. I guess that’s why I became an actress,” she said. “Not only because my parents were actors and, yeah, it’s a beautiful thing to tell stories, but I think I became an actress because I wanted to explore this—to explore what a human being is.” Quite deep, no? You can read Marion’s the full interview, and the interviews from the rest of the cover stars, in the Elle US November issue which hits newsstands October 22nd!

Marion Cotillard lands Best Dressed of the Week in Christian Dior

With Cannes and  amfAR Gala festivities in full swing this week, there, hasn’t been a shortage of breathtaking red carpet looks to ogle. But OD’ing on dresses has tired our eyes, leaving us in need of a fresh, easy look. So when Marion Cotillard, the face of Dior, attended the Dior Cruise show in Monaco, in a white trench coat from the fashion house’s pre-autumn/winter 2013-14 collection, we took a sigh of relief! The clean, minimal look she sported was a welcome detour from frocks and frill (all very beautiful, of course), and, although several Dior looks appeared this week, Marion’s outfit made us fall in love with the idea of the humble coat-as-a-dress option so expertly championed by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton! The cute collar and belt detail up the chic ante, whilst the neon toe-cap pumps ensure the white-out isn’t too clinical, adding a welcome splash of colour. Marion finished off her look with a sleek black clutch and neutral makeup, opting for a soft pink lip and a side-swept low-do – a no brainer for BDOTW! What do you make of Marion’s look? Would you opt for the coat-as-a-dress look? Image: Zimbio

Marion Cotillard scoops Best Dressed of the Week in Christian Dior

Trust a Frenchie to pull off a Parisian fashion house’s epic design with effortlessness. Would you believe Marion Cotillard is ever so nonchalantly wearing none other than Christian Dior here?! Although the raggedly cut, Rooney Mara-esqe bob isn’t really doing it for us, we couldn’t take our eyes of her stunning rise-and-fall hemline dress. Marion attended the Tokyo premiere of her latest film, Rust and Bone in a strapless frock festooned with textured florals, from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection. Although the overall look is very, very pared down, we think it works perfectly. Finishing off Marion’s red carpet style were asymmetrical strap Dior pumps (probably an ode to the uneven hemline) and a slick of gloss on the lips. We think it’s pretty refreshing to witness an accessory-free celebrity for once, allowing more focus to fall on the beautiful dress. What do you make of Marion’s minimal look? [Image: Zimbio]

Marion Cotillard’s new Lady Dior ad campaign is here!

Last Updated on 21st March 2013 Today’s a big day for ad campaign releases – we just saw Beyonce’s debut H&M ad, and now it’s time to check out Marion Cotillard’s latest pics for Christian Dior. Yep, the gorgeous Marion Cotillard makes a very welcome return as the face of the stunning Lady Dior handbags – shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino no less – and is showcasing two bright and bold pieces of arm candy while wearing sleek and sexy pre-fall designs by Mr Raf Simons. We can expect to see the ads make their debut in Numéro France on Monday, and in the Vanity Fair US May issue which hits newsstands on April 9th. And keep a beady eye on diormag.com, as some cheeky behind-the-scenes images will be released in due course. What do you think of Marion’s latest Lady Dior stint? Best one yet? [WWD]

Marion Cotillard scoops Best Dressed of the Week in Christian Dior Couture

Last Updated on 23rd February 2013 Attending the 2013 Cesar Film Awards in a breathtaking spring 2013 Christian Dior Couture gown was the stunning actress, Marion Cotillard. Opting for Dior once again (the last time was that zingy, directional number at the 2013 BAFTA Awards), this time Marion took a more classic, Forties pin-up route with the styling. The strapless pale pink gown was adorned with black stripes, worn with embellished pumps and classic Forties up-do. Chopard jewels completed her splendid look. Considering the awards ceremony was held in Paris, there was no excuse to not go for the classic French fashion house and, being the face of Lady Dior, only Dior would do on the night. We wouldn’t expect anything less from this beautiful French actress.

Marion Cotillard is Best Dressed of the Week in Christian Dior

Promoting her latest film, Rust and Bone at the AFI Fest in Hollywood, French beauty Marion Cotillard was papped doing the rounds wearing none other than her go-to name for red carpet dressing, Christian Dior. We’ve loved Marion in Dior before, and can safely say we love her this time, too. Opting for a cream and black halter style dress with a centre slit, and a shorter underskirt, Marion’s look, although sticking safely to the confines of some black, made for a refreshing change from a full length gown, and we love the effortless-yet-high-impact styling. Marion completed her look with Dior criss-cross sandals, and opted for a chic up do with smoky eyes and a nude lip. We love the hands-in-pockets stance, too! With such a graphic dress in terms of cut and opposing colours, Marion’s suitably nonchalant styling heightens the appeal of this look. She’s got that effortless French thing down to a tee, and bags our vote for Best Dressed, hands down. Was Marion your Best Dressed this week?

Marion Cotillard dramatic in Dior for Harper’s Bazaar UK December

Last Updated on 1st November 2012 Another December fashion glossy cover coming your way this morning, and this time it’s courtesy of the ever-gorgeous Marion Cotillard. The Oscar-winning French actress – whose new Lady Dior ad campaign was released earlier this week by the way – is looking as chic and sophisticated as ever on the front cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK in a sexy Dior Haute Couture number. No surprises there! The sleek hair and dark eyes look so seductive and striking against the simple background, proving that Marion can pull off both understated and dramatic looks with ease. Not even a hint of jealousy there, we promise! Marion isn’t the only reason to get the December copy though, as it also happens to be the Women of the Year issue which features the likes of Stella McCartney, Jessica Ennis, Vivienne Westwood and even our very own Queen! Gonna be a good’un!

Marion Cotillard’s latest Lady Dior ad doesn’t disappoint!

Last Updated on 29th October 2012 The gorgeous Marion Cotillard is back in Lady Dior’s latest campaign, looking just as poised, chic and elegant as ever. The French Oscar-winning actress was shot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino, and is wearing a fine ensemble from the Christian Dior Resort collection. We’re not gonna lie, we’ve never been able to do beach chic at the best of times; there’s something about sand and wind that always plays havoc with our outfits. So, now that we’ve seen how perfect someone can actually look on a beach, the bar has been raised even higher, making us believe we have no hope at all. We might be willing to give it a good go though if we decide to go in search of some winter sun. We’ll keep you posted, but in the meantime let’s all bask in the gorgeousness that is Marion Cotillard and the fine, striking piece of Lady Dior arm candy!

Marion Cotillard debuts Dior’s new collection on the red carpet

Last Updated on 15th October 2012 There’s a reason why Marion Cotillard continues to be given first dibs on Dior… and the picture above is it! The actress and face of Dior gave Raf Simons’ spring/summer 2013 ready-to-wear collection its red carpet debut at the London premiere of Rust and Bone. So simple, yet so effective, Marion looked effortlessly smouldering in one of the most chic fuss-free items from the new collection. Her seductive smoky eyes juxtaposed with the feminine pink lippie and quirky asymmetrical monochrome shoes added to the overall picture of perfection. Plus, we love her new slightly darker hair colour, as it contrasts with her pale skin beautifully. Take note, TOWIE girls! We hope more celebs will step out in Raf Simons’ new collection soon so we can see how the rest of the looks translate from runway to red carpet, but Marion Cotillard couldn’t have given it a better introduction!

Marion Cotillard and Gwen Stefani talk fashion in Time’s Style & Design Fall issue

Last Updated on 7th September 2012 It’s exciting enough to learn that Time has just released the Fall 2012 issue of its biannual Time Style & Design, but imagine our delight when we discovered that Marion Cotillard was on the cover… and both she and Gwen Stefani were among the interviewees! Marion Cotillard has had her fair share of mag covers recently (as has Gwen!), and this is another one for her to be proud of, don’t you think? As Marion was the first celeb to wear new-season Dior Couture on the red carpet, it’s safe to say that she is regarded as quite a big fashion influence, so it was inevitable that she’d be asked to dish the dirt on her sartorial choices past and present. “I love men’s hats, because my father wears them,” Marion said. I wore a lot of my father’s clothes as a kid, even though most of the time it was a disaster.” And let’s not forget music and style goddess Gwen Stefani, who spoke out about songwriting and clothes designing. “I’m more experienced with songwriting,” she said when asked which was easier. “Design is more of a fun hobby. There’s not as much pressure. It’s not emotional. It’s so fun and so indulgent. It’s all about what I want and what I can make.” We can’t wait to get stuck into those interviews! Will you be getting the new Time Style & Design?

Marion Cotillard wore Dior Couture for The Dark Knight Rises London premiere

Last Updated on 19th July 2012 It was the European premiere of the new Batman film The Dark Knight Rises last night, but it wasn’t the only premiere of the evening… This was the first time Raf Simons’ Christian Dior Haute Couture collection was seen off the runway – and on none other than the always impeccably dressed face of Miss Dior, Marion Cotillard. (We’re crossing our fingers that we could see the other Miss Dior beauty Mila Kunis in a piece from the new collection too!) Marion wore a light orange bustier top tucked into a high waisted black and white houndstooth skirt, which was finished off with a waist cinching black skinny belt and an assortment of red accessories in the form of shoes, a clutch, and of course, lipstick! We didn’t think those colours would have worked that well  together, but Marion has definitely proved us wrong! The vintage Hollywood hairstyle finished off the chic and classy look perfectly. Raf Simons couldn’t have chosen a better lady to debut his work!

Marion Cotillard covers both American Vogue and Marie Claire UK this month

Last Updated on 11th July 2012 Looks like those rumours we heard back in June about Marion Cotillard fronting American Vogue’s August issue were true, because here she is right before our very eyes. Marion is looking fresh faced, natural, not hugely air-brushed and generally quite flawless; we like the simple pose too – nothing too forced or overly dramatic, proving that you don’t need tricks and gimmicks when you’re dealing with a true Hollywood pro. This isn’t the only mag that the Christian Dior beauty and Oscar-winning actress is covering this month, as she is also posing pretty on the Marie Claire UK issue. Two very different shoots almost worlds apart… but which one do you prefer? There’s no denying that she looks phenomenal in both, but we’d be interested to hear your thoughts… [poll id=”356″]

Marion Cotillard replaces Carla Bruni

Last Updated on 6th April 2010 Just five months ago Carla Bruni was raving about starring in a Woody Allen film when the director approached her to work with him, but it seems the French First Lady’s dream was short-lived: he’s cast Dior girl Marion Cotillard instead.

Emma Watson has the wow factor on Christian Dior Couture AW14 front row

Last Updated on 8th July 2014 With every great fashion week – be it autumn/winter, spring/summer or the highly anticipated Haute Couture – comes a great front row. And the Christian Dior FROW was full to the brim with ultra-stylish A-listers (we wouldn’t expect anything less from one of the biggest French fashion Houses) including Miss Emma Watson, who pretty much stole the show for us! The former Harry Potter actress blew us away with her appearance on the front row, choosing to wear a wow-factor silk dress – from Dior, natch – which came with a rather interesting expanding silhouette. We think it would look quite unforgiving on a lot of other people – celebs and us regular folk – but Emma totally makes it work for her. We wouldn’t question it if someone told us the dress was made especially for her. The rest of the look was utter perfection too; Emma’s hair was brushed across her shoulders very naturally, and her make up was flawless, as expected. Why Emma Watson isn’t a Christian Dior ambassadress a’ la Jennifer Lawrence and Marion Cotillard is beyond us. We’re thinking of starting a petition to rectify this soon; who’s with us?

The CFDA Awards 2014: The best dressed!

Last Updated on 3rd June 2014 So we told you who the big award winners were earlier this morning, but now it’s time to take a look at who the sartorial winners were – the ones who stole the show and our hearts with their outfit choices! As Rihanna was collecting a Style Icon gong, it seemed only right that she make an iconic statement on the red carpet – and that’s exactly what she did in a glittering bespoke Adam Selman ensemble with 216,000 Swarovski crystals. Precise! Also impressing on the CFDA red carpet were Blake Lively (no surprises there, especially following her Cannes Film Festival style triumphs), supermodel extraordinaire Heidi Klum, Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o, and a gorgeous Olivia Wilde who still has that pregnant glow despite giving birth a few months ago. Motherhood clearly agrees with her! Take a look at the rest of our best-dressed celebs below, and let us know who gets your ultimate vote in the comments below or on Twitter.

The Met Gala 2014: The best dressed!

Last Updated on 6th May 2014 All the big names in fashion, film, and music gathered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City last night, for the highly anticipated Met Gala! This year, the museum was honouring Charles James, and the dress-code was a very simple (albeit slightly “boring” according to Marc Jacobs) “white tie and decorations”. Anyone familiar with the work of Charles James would know that elegant eveningwear was his thing, so they wouldn’t have gone wrong by donning the finest couture pieces with some elegant jewels. There were many ladies who absolutely nailed their looks, while some probably should have stayed home. Stella McCartney had a big moment on the red carpet, dressing the likes of Rihanna and Reese Witherspoon so flawlesslessly for the event, in two very different but equally stunning dresses. Rihanna went for her signature sexy look, while Reese was a vintage glamour goddess. Selena Gomez also wowed on the red carpet for us, looking very mature for just 21 years old in a bold deep purple Diane von Furstenberg dress. We also love how Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester were reunited at the Met Gala – they both looked amazing in  their respective Gucci Premiere and Emilio Pucci dresses. Not all of the ladies went for full-length or ballgown dresses (like Hayden Panettiere who looked like a Princess!) though – Solange Knowles and Lena Dunham were just two of the stars who went for something a little bit shorter. The impact definitely wasn’t lost though. Here are our best dressed celebs from last night’s Met Gala. Let us know who gets your vote in the comments below. Victoria Beckham in Victoria Beckham Rihanna in Stella McCartney Blake Lively in Gucci Premiere Reese Witherspoon in Stella McCartney Selena […]

Scarlett Johansson fierce in monochrome for debut Vanity Fair France issue

Last Updated on 26th June 2013 Ooo la la, what have we here, then? Vanity Fair is expanding, and has just launched its first ever Vanity Fair France issue. And who better to help the French mag shift loads of copies than, er, American actress Scarlett Johansson? We know what you’re thinking; why didn’t the magazine use a classic French icon for the cover to celebrate? It’s not like there’s a shortage of them – Marion Cotillard or Audrey Tautou spring to mind as excellent debut magazine cover stars. However, Scarlett Johansson definitely has mag pulling power so we totally get why she was favoured over a more traditional famous French face. Plus the “American in Paris” phrase never really gets old, does it? ScarJo was shot by Mark Seliger and is rocking a monochrome ensemble on the front cover, complete with a seriously fierce gold choker and a dangerous stare! We have every faith the mag’s debut French issue will be a success!

Christian Dior is taking over Harrods!

Last Updated on 12th March 2013 Harrods will be paying tribute to Christian Dior this spring, by dedicating the Brompton Road store’s floors and windows to the iconic French brand. The store windows will get a classic grey and white Dior make-over, and the fourth floor will turn into the “ultimate Dior experience.” “We are thrilled to be partnering with Dior, one of our most successful global luxury brands on such an exciting venture,” said Marigay McKee, a spokesperson for Harrods. “Highlights of this exclusive initiative include a unique exhibition that takes you on a fascinating journey, unveiling intricate details of Dior’s rich heritage.” The fourth floor will be reconstructed to resemble the famous 30 Avenue Montaigne Dior headquarters in Paris, with an abundance of exciting displays available to witness. You can check the new Miss Dior handbag range out, dine in the Café Dior pop up restaurant, and see sketches and mannequins of iconic designs, among other things. The ‘Stars in Dior’ section sounds particularly appealing to us, as it features the actual dresses worn by some of our favourite celebs from the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Marion Cotillard and Emma Watson among others. You can catch the Harrods/Dior take-over from March 16th to April 14th, so make sure you pencil it in your diaries!

The BAFTAs 2013: The best dressed!

Last Updated on 11th February 2013 The British weather didn’t make the best impression on the out-of-towners, but they certainly made an impact with us as far as their red carpet choices were concerned. Yes, the stars who flew in from the good ol’ US of A braved the rain, sleet, snow and overall chill and stunned the crowds at the 2013 BAFTAs last night, but that doesn’t mean our own homegrown talent took a back seat either. On the contrary, the Brit hotties made a huge impression on the red carpet, proving that the stars from both sides of the pond have got it right in those all-important style stakes. Although black and blue hues more or less dominated the carpet, there were a few exceptions to the rule. Marion Cotillard for example went for the brightest shade she could find, as she stepped out in a rockin’ yellow dress from Raf Simons’ Dior collection. Hawk-eyed fashionistas may remember that Jennifer Lawrence wore the dark blue version of the dress to the Screen Actors Guild Awards a few weeks ago. One of our fave looks came courtesy of Sarah Jessica Parker – when we caught wind of the fact that she would be attending we predicted something loud, proud and totally Carrie Bradshaw-esque. However, we got sleek, understated, and undisputedly sexy as she turned heads in a stunning black jumpsuit. Well played, SJP – you’re a fashion icon for a reason! Here’s a list of our best-dressed from the evening. Don’t forget to vote for your favourite at the bottom! Jessica Chastain in Roland Mouret Sarah Jessica Parker in Elie Saab Anne Hathaway in Burberry  Marion Cotillard in Dior Laura Whitmore in Alexandre Vauthier Couture Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Thandie Newton in Louis Vuitton Paloma Faith in Nicholas Oakwell […]

The Screen Actors Guild Awards 2013: The best dressed!

Last Updated on 28th January 2013 Another Sunday night was spent sitting in front of the television with a glass of fizz passing sartorial judgement on the famous faces of Tinsel Town, as the Screen Actors Guild Awards took place in LA. It was another successful night as far as red carpet triumphs were concerned, with few of our favourite looks coming courtesy of Amanda Seyfried in striking blue Zac Posen, Lea Michele in hot pink Valentino, Marion Cotillard in Dior Couture, and even little Mad Men star Kiernan Shipka in attention-grabbing Oscar de la Renta. We all remember how Rosie Huntington Whiteley channelled Jessica Rabbit at the Transformers 3 premiere, but we think Jessica Chastain was after her crown as she oozed glamour and sexiness in her figure-hugging Alexander McQueen dress. Breathtaking! Scroll down to check out the full list of our favourites… and make sure you cast your vote in the poll below, we want to know what you think! Amanda Seyfried in Zac Posen Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen Lea Michele in Valentino Marion Cotillard in Dior Kiernan Shipka in Oscar de la Renta  Naomi Watts in Marchesa  Nina Dobrev in Elie Saab  January Jones in Prabal Gurung Jennifer Garner in Oscar de la Renta Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior Couture Sofia Vergara in Donna Karan  Anne Hathaway in Giambattista Valli Sarah Hyland in Dolce and Gabbana Nicole Kidman in Vivienne Westwood  Cast your votes… [poll id=”391″]

The Golden Globes 2013: The best dressed!

Last Updated on 14th January 2013 Snow may very well have been forecast here in the UK, but it was a totally different story across the pond, as the stars of Tinsel Town were well and truly scorching for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. Next to the Oscars, this really is our favourite of the awards ceremonies, as it gives the stars from some of the best TV shows and films of the moment the chance to step out onto the red carpet and celebrate their greatness. Red was one of the key colours of the evening, with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Zooey Deschanel and Claire Danes stepping out in varying hues of the shade. Despite colour being very prominent, we also had some cracking black gowns courtesy of Kate Hudson, Eva Longoria, Sofia Vergara, Adele, Nicole Kidman and Sarah Hyland among others. Paler dresses came from the likes of Lea Michele, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Hayden Panettiere, Megan Fox and Jessica Chastain. All in all, the Golden Globes 2013 were a roaring success on the red carpet hence our larger-than-average best dressed list this morning. Who was your favourite?

The Critics Choice Awards 2013: The best dressed!

Last Updated on 11th January 2013 We have so many looks from the 18th Annual Critics Choice Awards to get through this afternoon we’d better crack on and get straight down to business. Basically this year’s CCA’s were something rather spectacular, with the red carpet being dominated by goddesses in predominantly floor-length fabulous frocks. There were a few exceptions of course – Marion Cotillard for example wore a sensational Zuhair Murad tea dress which earned her a top spot on our best-dressed list. Fashion is all about taking risks and standing out from the crowd after all! Other ladies who really impressed us with their gowns include Anne Hathaway in golden Oscar de la Renta, her Les Miserables co-star Amanda Seyfried in custom Marios Schwab and her former Devil Wears Prada costar Emily Blunt in sensational Miu Miu. Jennifer Lawrence pulled out another showstopper by way of her black Prabal Gurung dress, and Jaime King turned a multitude of heads by looking flawless in a sexy Jason Wu creation. Between this and the People’s Choice Awards earlier this week, it’s safe to say that Awards Season gas definitely kicked off with a bang this month – check out the full list of our best-dressed celebs and as usual, let us know who got your vote at the bottom. Anne Hathaway in Oscar de la Renta Marion Cotillard in Zuhair Murad Eva Longoria in Monique Lhuillier Emily Blunt in Miu Miu  Jennifer Lawrence in Prabal Gurung Emmy Rossum in Carolina Herrera Naomi Watts in Emilio Pucci Jaime King in Jason Wu Amanda Seyfried in Marios Schwab  Nina Dobrev in Monique Lhuillier Jessica Chastain in Prada Amy Adams in Vionnet Helen Hunt in Philip Armstrong [poll id=”385″]

Anne Hathaway, Sienna Miller, Jennifer Lawrence and Sofia Vergara among 2013 Golden Globe nominees!

Last Updated on 14th December 2012 Ok so there’s only 11 days until actual Christmas, but we have to admit that awards season gets us more excited than any festive holiday. Sorry Santa! We revel in the excitement of staying up all night and keeping a beady eye on who is wearing who on the red carpet while predicting which famous faces will walk away with the coveted accolades. The Golden Globes are the awards that ease us into awards season and really set the bar for the other ceremonies to come, so without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the lucky (and of course talented) names to be nominated for an award. Naturally we see a nomination for Anne Hathaway for her role in Les Miserables; and we must give a special congrats to Sienna Miller for landing a nomination for her part in The Girl. BEST ACTOR, MUSICAL OR COMEDY Jack Black, Bernie Bradley Cooper, Silver Linings Playbook Hugh Jackman, Les Misérables Ewan McGregor, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen Bill Murray, Hyde Park on Hudson BEST ACTRESS, MUSICAL OR COMEDY Emily Blunt, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen Judi Dench, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook Maggie Smith, Quartet Meryl Streep, Hope Springs BEST MOTION PICTURE, MUSICAL OR COMEDY The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Les Misérables Moonrise Kingdom Salmon Fishing in the Yemen Silver Linings Playbook BEST DIRECTOR Ben Affleck, Argo Kathryn Bigelow, Zero Dark Thirty Ang Lee, Life of Pi Steven Spielberg, Lincoln Quentin Tarantino, Django Unchained BEST ACTOR, DRAMA Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln Richard Gere, Arbitrage John Hawkes, The Sessions Joaquin Phoenix, The Master Denzel Washington, Flight BEST ACTRESS, DRAMA Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty Marion Cotillard, Rust and Bone Helen Mirren, Hitchcock Naomi Watts, The Impossible Rachel Weisz, The Deep Blue […]

Kristen Stewart test drives Louis Vuitton’s SS13 collection!

Last Updated on 26th October 2012 Diane Kruger always gets her hands on Chanel before anyone else, and Marion Cotillard usually gets first dibs on Dior, and it looks like Kristen Stewart is one of the first gals to step out in a dress from the brand new Louis Vuitton spring/summer 2013 collection! The actress was rocking the black and white box print dress as she attended a photocall for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 in Japan sans her on again-off again boyfriend and costar Robert Pattinson. This dress was definitely one of those “look what you’re missing R-Pattz” pieces, which we think she accessorised well with Brian Atwood booties, lightly tousled wavy hair and vamp-inspired black eye make-up. Not long to go until the big premieres, so get your predictions in for what K-Stew and the rest of the Twilight ladies will be wearing on the red carpet. We predict more LV, as well as some Marios Schwab and Balenciaga for Kristen, while we bet Ashley Greene will rock a few bespoke Donna Karan dresses. Watch this space!

Midweek Moodboard: Under the sea

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 You know Fashion Month is well and truly over when the A-listers have already had first dibs on some of the new season pieces. Yes Marion Cotillard and Sarah Jessica Parker, we’re looking at you! While reflecting on the proceedings of Fashion Month, another one of the collections which stood out to us (for all the right reasons of course) was Monique Lhuillier’s with the blatant under the sea theme the designer ran with. We too wanted to get in on the underwater action, so take a look at some of the aquatic inspired items we selected this Wednesday afternoon if you don’t want to miss out either! Rainbow sequins strap dress, £200, French Connection  available at House of Fraser Turquoise sequin jumper, £1950, Oscar de la Renta available at Net a Porter Dip back maxi skirt, £25, available at Topshop Long sleeve sequin dress, £30, available at Dorothy Perkins Envelope shoulder bag, £258, Sophie Hulme available at Far Fetch Blue and gold bangles set, £4.99, available at New Look Patent skinny belt, £13, available at John Lewis Grape embellished courts, £65, Carvela available at Selfridges

Sarah Jessica Parker’s simple sophistication in Calvin Klein

Last Updated on 16th October 2012 Yesterday Marion Cotillard gave Dior’s latest ready-to-wear collection its red carpet debut, and now it looks like Sarah Jessica Parker has done the same for  Calvin Klein. SJP attended Elle‘s Women in Hollywood Celebration in Beverly Hills last night, wearing a pale grey dress hot off the spring/summer 2013 runway. The event was attended by a bevy of gorgeous women from the likes of Emma Stone to Lea Michele (they looked phenomenal too, may we add) but there’s something about the sheer simplicity of Sarah’s outfit that has us hooked. The former Carrie Bradshaw could have over-accessorised with chunky Anna Dello Russo approved jewellery or a contrasting piece of arm candy, but we’re glad she let the dress and her simple, sleek hairstyle do all the talking. One of our favourite Sarah Jessica Parker looks of the year, we think!

Jennifer Lawrence is the new face of Miss Dior

Last Updated on 10th October 2012 It’s officially been confirmed that Hunger Games actress and current British Vogue cover girl Jennifer Lawrence is the brand new face of Miss Dior. The 22-year-old beauty will therefore follow in the footsteps of Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard in posing for the iconic brand. “Like the whole world I first discovered Jennifer Lawrence as a young action hero,” said new Dior creative director Raf Simons. “I was of course struck by her unbelievable on screen presence in these ‘larger than life’ movies, but I was equally impressed by her powerful portrayal of more emotional and complex characters. Her youth and her classic beauty but also the feminine strength and complexity that she can portray at such a young age are for me very unique and very appealing.” We had a small inkling that Jennifer would have something exciting lined up with the fashion House, as she sat pretty on the front row for the Couture show earlier this year.  Her ads are slated to break in March next year! Excited? [WWD]

Rachel Weisz scoops Best Dressed of the Week in Christian Dior Couture

Raf Simons’ magic at the helm of Christian Dior Couture made its first outing thanks to Marion Cotillard, who donned a stunning ensemble from the designer’s debut Couture collection for the fashion house, for the London premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, last month. More recently, Jessica Biel followed suit and stunned in an ultra-feminine powder pink Dior Couture dress at the Total Recall LA premiere, earlier this week. But is was Rachel Weisz in a stunning, black strapless bustier Dior Couture Fall 2012 dress at the New York premiere for The Bourne Legacy earlier this week that had us picking up our dropped jaws from the table! Mrs Daniel Craig looked resplendent in a genius take on the perennially sexy Black Dress (although we’re going to call it the MBD or Mid Black Dress). Completing her look was a black Charlotte Olympia ‘Pandora Domino’ clutch, Christian Louboutin ‘Bow Bow’ sandals, an elegant up do and a seductively scarlet pout. We really can’t think of a more deserving (and painfully stylish) candidate for this week’s BDOTW!

Lunchtime buy: Maje light grey sweater with removable riveted collar

We don’t know about you, but today we’re coveting some Parisian chic. Created by Moroccan-born designer Judith Milgrom in 2004, French label Maje is making a name for itself with its highly desirable, youthful yet sexy pieces. We absolutely love Maje’s autumn/winter collection: it’s got a distinctly Sixties feel to it with peter pan collars, cute knits and tiny body-con mini dresses. But the piece we’re really loving? This light grey sweater with a removable riveted collar. Chic and timeless, the detachable lambskin studded collar gives this knit a modern rock and roll edge. Plus, since it’s detachable, you can team the collar with other jumpers and tops too – tres bien! We’ll be wearing it with a mini skirt, ribbed wool tights and cute Mary Jane shoes, stood next to the Eiffel Tower, of course. Oh, and with Marion Cotillard and Vanessa Paradis as fans of the label, we know we’re in good company. Parfait! Maje Light grey sweater with removable riveted collar, £167, available at Stylebop.com.

Guillaume Canet in Yves Saint Laurent

Last Updated on 20th May 2010 Yep, that’s it right there. That is how to wear a suit. French actor Guillaume Canet shows us how it’s done as he attends the premier for the Woody Allen film ‘You’ll meet a tall dark stranger’ at Cannes this week. That is – how to wear a suit and look effortlessly stylish whilst doing so. We can’t decide whether the secret is in his nonchalant pose or the fact that he’s wearing top-to-toe Yves Saint Laurent in the form of a black tuxedo, white shirt, black tie and black lace-ups. We’ve got a sneaking suspicion that it’s probably both of these factors, coupled with an annoying yet admirable ‘je ne sais quoi’ that French men have when it comes to dressing. Oh and there’s one more rather dazzling addition that contributes to Guillaume’s effortless cool, and that’s in the form of the very beautiful Marion Cotillard. Guillaume’s girlfriend Marion looked stunning at the Chopard 150th anniversary party earlier in the week wearing a Lefranc Ferrant sequined jumpsuit. We’re looking forward to seeing their creative talents brought together as Marion stars in ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs’ later in the year – a film directed by the very stylish Guillaume.

Top Stories this week: Kate Moss, Lacroix and more!

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 Kate Moss become ballet star Kate Moss is set to be swapping her ballet pumps for…ballet pumps as it’s revealed that Ms Moss has signed a deal to star in a new ballet alongside one of the world’s greatest dancers , Sex and the City actor , Mikhail Baryshnikov. The pair will duet in a short film that will be shown as part of a fundraising event, and also at a private New York gallery. We imagine it will be a little different from her previous pole dancing performance. Christian Lacroix on the up After filing for bankruptcy last year we thought it could all be over for legendary label Christain Lacroix. But it seems that Lacroix himself will be cutting all ties with the company following its plans for the future. Nicolas Topiol, Lacroix’s CEO, announced that he’ll be teaming up with several other labels to launch four new product categories , though sadly, couture and ready-to-wear won’t be making a comeback. Moises de la Renta for Mango Design talent obviously runs in the family as Oscar de la Renta’s son, Moises , who is also a designer , will be launching an exclusive t-shirt collection for Mango this month. The twenty-five year old is said to fuse his father’s timeless aesthetic with his own youthful rock and roll edge , we look forward to seeing the results! Naomi won’t face charges Despite allegations that she attacked her driver last week it appears that Naomi won’t face charges after all. The chauffeur claimed the supermodel hit him from the back seat of the car after becoming annoyed, and then fled the vehicle when he alerted a traffic warden to call the police. But the authorities have since confirmed they won’t be pursuing Ms. […]

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 Watch an exclusive preview of chapter two in the Lady Dior saga, see which fashion house is using mice instead of models, and find out which designer is channelling blood and bruises for AW10… We knew there’d be a round two. The second chapter of Lady Dior , ‘Lady Rouge’, starring Marion Cotillard , is on it’s way, and we’ve got an exclusive teaser – Lady Dior February is hell-bent on leaving us bankrupt: Topshop’s Edit boutique is returning again, bringing with it a whole roster of young emerging designers, including our fave KTZ – Topshop Marc Jacobs is homing in on Westwood’s homeless chic, and we love it , Purseblog Some thing’s are too darn cute , Marni has ditched the supers for its SS10 campaign and gone for animated mice-like creatures, clad in the designer gear from head to, er, tail , Grazia Those bloody boxers , models at Jean Paul Gaultier’s AW10 menswear show were sent down the runway dressed as boxers, complete with blood and bruises , The Cut

The Met Costume Institute Gala 2009: The Gowns

Last Updated on 8th May 2009 Forget the Oscars. Last night NY was awash with celebs who scrubbed up and donned their best outfits for the annual Met Costume Institute Gala. Hosted by Marc Jacobs, Kate Moss and Justin Timberlake, the purpose of the event was to honour “the model as a muse. With actresses and singers dominating campaigns and magazine covers, the supermodel is a dying breed. So what to do? Celebrate their existence with an exhibition and a ball. Top tables for the evening set guests back a Alaia snub, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Stephanie Seymour chose not to attend….a bit sad really as all three would have set the carpet on fire. But alas we do still have a lot of material to work with. So here goes.

The Gospel according to D&G

Last Updated on 10th February 2009 Dolce and Gabbana are fashion geniuses, they are perhaps even style gods, but priests? Looks like there’s nothing the design duo can’t do. But if you’re wondering where this stylish congregation will be, or the fact that you didn’t know the Catholic church was into appointing fashion designers, then never fear, it’s all for a film. As with most things fact is often stranger than fiction. So they are not priests, but they are playing cameo roles as priests in a musical film. Honestly, it’s the truth….told you it was strange. In a new film called Nine, directed by Rob Marshall, Stefano and Domenico were caught on camera in Rome last week in all their holy inspired glory. The film, based on a Broadway musical is due for release in November. But D&G aren’t the only exciting stars in the film. Oh no, they join one of the best casts we’ve seen in a long time. Starring alongside Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Judi Dench, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and Sophia Loren. Now that’s a line up. Who’d have thought of a pair of designers sharing the screen with such stars, rather than dressing them?! [Source]

The BAFTAs 2009: Back to Black!

Last Updated on 9th February 2009 So we are now in full movie red carpet full swing. In the run up to the Oscars, the BAFTAs are the place to shine. And did they do it? Did the stars remind us why they are the people we want to be? In a word.. No. It wasn’t an evening of epic disasters, there was nothing so horrific it made me want to cry, well maybe there was one. But there was certainly nothing to capture the imagination. So much black, you wouldn’t have been blamed for thinking that they were all off to a very glamorous funeral. The Hit list Kate Winslet , love or hate her, her stylist certainly knows her stuff. Kate’s Zac Posen number may not have been a fabulous colour but the dress flatters and accentuates those curves. I am particularly loving the vampish neckline. Freida Pinto – Wearing a girly Oscar De La Renta gown, the Slumdog Millionaire star was the shining light in all that black. It fit perfectly, and the pink ruffles were wonderfully feminine. The statement necklace adds true glamour. Amy Adams , Flying the flag for sexy redheads everywhere, Amy Adams is continuing her status as a screen siren. The royal blue gown from RM by Roland Mouret, hugged her shape creating a perfect silhouette. I’m loving the cleverly draped pearls, although the earrings are a little unnecessary. Sharon Stone , In striking red Sharon Stone knows how to work the red carpet. The hair is a little finger in a plug socket, but we’ll forgive her because she really is working her John Galliano dress. Emma Watson – This is not a wow dress, but it is not worthy of a non-entity either. There is something really quite striking about this […]

Paris Je T’aime!

Last Updated on 19th October 2013 It is something of a style cliche to say that Paris is a site of style inspiration but a recent trip to the City of Lights has reminded me why it has this reputation in the first place. Whilst its inhabitants may not fill the streets with quite the same sartorial eccentricity of London or New York, there is a compelling allure to all of that understated nonchalance. Of course, it is my experience that you have to actually be French to pull it off…
