In or Out: Marion Cotillard in Christian Dior

Posted on October 25, 2011

Sometimes, the absurdity of motion picture marketing can be entertaining, but it’s times like these our hearts go out to poor celebrities and stylists.

 

Marion Cotillard in Christian DiorMarion Cotillard attends the premiere of “Contagion” in Paris in head-to-toe Christian Dior.

Marion Cotillard in Christian Dior

All that work just to stand in front of a backdrop that makes you look like a poster warning about the dangers of venereal disease. She looks thrilled to be standing in front of that sickly yellow wall, doesn’t she? “Yeah. ‘Danger!’ “Contagion!’ Haha. Very funny. I’m Typhoid Fucking Marie. We done with the pictures?”

We think the dress is kind of cute, but the outfit on a whole seems kind of lacking. Not for lack of trying with the shoes, though. Those things look like they come with a 40-page manual. We don’t know. Everything’s cute, but it’s lacking oomph. At least from the knees up. We’re thinking she needed a statement piece of jewelry and less casual hair. Are we wrong here? We’re asking.

      Sigh. IN. I hate the dress, but she wears it well, and the background is not her fault.

    • Anonymous

      I agree, something seems off here. She looks so perfectly put together and I want to love it, but she’s lacking that extra oomph that really would make her stand out.

        This is a dress that needs a hat, a bag, and different shoes. Maybe yellow pumps? If her knees looked better, I’d say bare legs were fine, but just no. Those legs are crying out for stockings. The hair should be up.

        Still I’m going with an In. It’s a cute dress and it’s not her fault that the backdrop is like that.

        • Anonymous

          Oh, I don’t know, I think with the cute but tortured shoes, having her hair up might be too much. I think if you have chains on your feet, maybe you need to let your hair down. IN.

          I know I’ve said this before, but come on now.  Her knees are FINE.  I seriously cannot believe this level of nitpicking being applied to perfectly normal (well above-average, really) legs.

          Anyway, I agree that the accessories are lacking, but I’ll go with IN anyway, mainly because it’s clearly not an out.

      IN – If she knew that was the background there really was nothing else she could wear that wouldn’t look hideous. This is plain, but it works. Black wouldn’t have, it would be too Typhoid Mary. All white wouldn’t. Any color would have clashed. The poor dear had no choice.

      IN, because for some reason I responded really well to this look. Is it weird that it’s refreshing to see a celebrity who doesn’t give a shit about her movie? 

    • Anonymous

      Yow!  Look at the model’s shoe shot – there’s a fresh scratch on the instep.  Those shoes are nertz, in this Aged Minion’s opinion.  Take more than one step and wouldn’t those chains be lacerating her skin?  I feel for Mlle. Cotillard.  That was work to wear this ensemble under these circs.

    • Heather Kaplin

      I actually like it quite a bit, I think the lack of umph is more from her posture than anything else… like you said, she looks less than thrilled. 
      (In other words, IN)

      In. I like it, I just don’t think this is her dress. She is a beautiful soul, and someone who was a bit more edge could really make it a WERQ.

    • Anna Maria Diamanti

      F-ing LOVE those shoes, and especially love that she went with that color. The problem is the top half of the dress looks like a mistake–you have to stare at it to see the lines in fact match up.

    • Anonymous

      I agree the dress does need something to give it some umph, as you can’t expect those shoes to do all the work.  But those shoes look painful, a strangling, pinching, blistering mess.  Cute, yes, but ever so painful.  I’m with Iman, I don’t think your feet should suffer for fashion.  But that’s just me and Iman, I think.  So IN, but a qualified IN.

      IN. I like the clean look, but a statement piece of jewelry would’ve been OK as well. LOVE the shoes and think the pop of color she chose (instead of the black/model version) was a nice touch. Of course, I wouldn’t want to walk in them, but they are pretty amazing.

      As an aside, Ms. Cotillard certainly can wear clothes – anybody see Midnight in Paris? Loved her costumes in that movie. Walked out of the theater and remarked to my movie companion that I would totally wear any of them right now! Beautiful outfits and Marion totally rocked the era.

      marion cotillard is all the “oomph” an outfit needs.  other clothes should be so lucky.

      IN. i think if she just had of had one slightly more impacting piece of jewelry, she would’ve been fine. OR if the pattern of the dress on top continued all the way down, it would’ve been a better dress.

      Wrong shoes for that dress, and the shape of the skirt on that dress is just… I love hips and I love cartoony shapes, but it just kind of looks like someone popped her hips like a balloon, even if it does look like they reduced the amount of fabric for the red carpet version.

      oh for heavens sake, if it looks like a high end version of josh’s horrible pants & it makes the model look like her butt is the size & shape of the front of the tunnel that takes the boats down into the land o’ love– only covered w/ an optical illusion plus you pair the whole mess of an ensemble w/ sickly salmon velvet shoes covered w/ buckles enough to accommodate any number of lindsay lohan’s required anklewear– anyway, where was i going w/ this? better than when she had the ‘fro but she shouldnt be doing this to herself either.

      edited to add:
      & neither should christian dior. why couldnt JG just have put a less impaired sock in it? cos he couldnt have made this, could he? or, rather, even if he had it just proves his level of distraction. but i dont think he did.

      I absolutely loved this when The Fug Girls posted it yesterday.  I thought the shoes were divine, but on closer inspection was a bit disappointed.  I wanted the chains to be crystal encrusted and it almost looks like they are patent wing tipped.  All told, these are small quibbles with what for me, is an otherwise splendidly simple dress with a fantastic pop of color at the feet.

      I liked her casual, yet polished hair and simple jewelry.

      It’s all IN for me, baby.

      totally in…the shoes are great. maybe they were the attempt at oompf, what with the matching coral lip…if her nails were the same shade it may have teased my eye into thinking this was really great yet not too matchy-matchy. different hair-hate the side swoop.

      Love the dress, LOVE the shoes (especially that she switched the coral). Needs either a single huge bangle or her hair pulled messily away from her face and some big earrings to balance out the shoes. At the moment the eye is drawn down to the shoes and isn’t drawn away. There’s a reason the model is wearing a folded napkin on her head.

      Oh dear. That dress, in fit and in pattern, does nothing for her hips. There’s a dropped waist that isn’t quite dropped enough. There’s a pattern that’s doing everything but meeting at the sides of her dress. Pause. WHAT IN THE HECK IS HAPPENING ON THE SIDES OF HER DRESS?? And to top it all off, she’s stolen shoes from the mannequin at Hot Topic. She looks embarrassed. She should be. OUT.

      I love her, but this just looks…odd. I mean, it’s Marion Cotillard, she’s *so* beautiful, that if you look at her and go “enhhhh…I don’t know…” you know that she’s been dressed poorly. I really dislike the shoes – color, design, everything about them. The dress is fine, I guess, but something about it doesn’t suit her, although with appropriate styling I think it could look much nicer. The real crime here, I’ve decided, is the makeup & hair. The hair looks half finished, and the makeup is just wholly inadequate. Kind of like…were they trying to make her look kind of tired? I say OUT.

      The shoes, in black, paired with a different dress, maybe a more colorful one (I think they would be gorgeous with a green or purple dress) would be awesome. This dress is sad. Also I don’t like how they made the hips part of the dress so wide. That really doesn’t flatter anyone, not even Marion Cotillard. The pattern doesn’t help either.

      She needed some color in there other than just on the feet.  Dunno what though.  Still, tentative IN, and I rather like the shoes.

      I think a killah updo would help bring some oomph to the look. The dress is nice, the shoes are great, and she looks very pretty, but it needs *something*. I can’t put my nose on it, so IN.

      IN – I think she looks great. It is a little understated, but it’s very sophisticated and brings the right level of oomph for a movie premiere. I agree it almost borders on a ladies who lunch dress, but I think the shoes take it to the next level. Also, LOVE HUH.

      Her hair looks better than it EVER has in this picture… I think she looks fine. IN.

      in. those shoes are fuhmazing.

    • Stefanos Mantyla

      It maybe should have been a little more dressed up. Shoes certainly show effort, but still, even if it is not quite the quintessential OUT, I think it is still an OUT just because it does not quite look IN.

      And that wall paper is terribly unflattering to anyone sitting in front of it, I agree!

      And why does the dress look strangely unflattering on the model? Or is it just me?

      It’s an In, because it’s cute, looks good and she’s tried to perk it up a little with the shoes.  For many people this would be a raving IN, but Marion has set the bar very high on occasion, so for her it’s more a lackadaisical In.

      In! She is fabulous and while it isn’t her most exciting outfit, she still looks great and the shoes rock.

      Something about the dress paired with those shoes just feels off; however, I’ll give her an IN for being so good in ‘Contagion.’ Fine.

      Out.  It could be a cute dress, needs a belt.  The shoes are awful, the hair disinterested.  So it doesn’t matter about the ugly backdrop, she’s an out regardless.

      That dress is precious, but there’s something missing. I don’t know what it is. I think I would know it if I saw it.

    • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

      The dress is making me dizzy and it’s not really a movie premiere dress, so out. 

    • Cathy S

      The only part of this I like is the hat the model is wearing. I don’t like the dress (where the pattern changes it makes her hips, and the models hips, look huge, and I hate the shoes. Great hat though.Out.

    • Mary McClelland

      Hmm… I love the shoes. But no, she’s OUT. TLo is right she needs to pump up the volume somewhere.

      If she were standing in front of a solid-colored wall –say red or blue, there would be nothing missing. And I applaud the shoe color. In.

      Not perfect but I think she looks pretty darn cute, so in.

      IN. I think adding color to the shoes is enough to give her a pass.

      I think you’re 100% right that a piece of statement jewelry and more “done” is exactly what this look needs, but I think she’s still IN as is. Wearing the shoes in coral was a great choice.

        also, a thought – not to a movie for obvious reasons, but that whole damn thing would look great with an updo and a black hat (or maybe I’m still visiting with Korean Vogue)

      The hat on the model completed the look.

      But she’s still cute in the dress. The pink shoes added a little necessary interest.

    • Tom Shea

      It hurts my heart because I love her so, but she’s OUT. The pannier look is awful, IMO, and the shoes don’t really work for me.

      In. She looks super cute. Just wish her lipstick didn’t match her shoes.

      She needs a nice black belt to break up the graphic of the fabric.  And different shoes.  These are Kardashian shoes not French Oscar winner shoes.  Not sure statement jewelry would work – maybe a large bracelet would pop, but a necklace or earrings would get swallowed by that print.  And the background!  Puke yellow.  Lovely.  Poor woman is working an impossible carpet – acid yellow walls, burgandy and grey carpet  – *shudder*

    • Jessica O’Connell

      I think that she could have used a little more jewelery to kick it up a bit, but the dress is cute, the shoes are interesting and pop, and I think the hair and makeup look pretty. IN.

      Oh, I don’t know guys, it’s not red carpet but she looks really good in that outfit. I think it’s the yellow background that’s making the collective eyes hurt.  I think the shoes are great!

      You’re right: the dress is kind of cute. But ‘kind of cute’ doesn’t play well with dominatrix Easter pumps.

      I’m sure it must have been said, but I wish she had worn the hat, from the runway look. It kind of gives it a little something. I don’t love the color of her shoes, but I appreciate that she did add some color with her footwear. I LOVE the black version of those shoes.
      I say she’s IN.

    • Anonymous

      Minus the backdrop, she’s a big “in.”  Her people should have realized that all of those black lines against the yellow back drop with lots of black print would be too busy.  But, despite that demerit, she’s still in.

      IN. She looks cute. Could use a nice big bangle.

      A very prejudicial OUT.

      The dress is o.k. and could have been styled up. Wasn’t.

      Like the color of the shoes but not the glittery laces look.

      In the end it’s out because I am left feeling very, very underwhelmed, and M. Cotillard is usually quite impressive. So something is very wrong, here.

      want/need those shoes. not to wear. just to look at. she is totally IN.

      Maybe a skinny coral belt to pick up the shoe color?  It does seem plain.  But then, what the hell do you wear in front of hasmat yellow?

      A statement cuff would have gone a long way, but she still looks fabulous despite the dreadful backdrop. IN

      The shoes making it and IN. The hair makes it an Out. So the result is a little in and a little out

      I LOVE this look!  The dress (especially when combined with the background she’s dealing with) is statement enough, and with the added benefit of those killer shoes, she’s working this out!  The only thing I could see working with this this is a colorful clutch, but I don’t think that’s even needed.
