Cannes Watch: Marion Cotillard in Dior Couture

Posted on May 18, 2012

Miss Marion gets as French as she can possibly get, wearing Dior Couture on the French Riviera, at Cannes. She should’ve worn a beret and stuck a baguette down the front of her dress to complete the picture. We’re all about tacky, reductive national pride here at T Lo Opinions, Unlimited.

Marion Cotillard attends the “De Rouille et D’os” Premiere at Cannes in a Christian Dior couture gown paired with a white gold watch with diamonds and white gold necklace from the Chopard Red Carpet Collection.

She looks pretty killa here, no? The dress is gorgeous on her. But that’s Dior Couture. We would expect no less. We want to talk about the accessories. Chopard has been handing out the diamond-encrusted watches to the lady attendants of Cannes and we’ve seen a few here and there show up on the RC. We don’t love the idea of wristwatches paired with gowns, but we suppose hot-glueing a whole bunch of diamonds onto it really helps bump up the glam factor. She also did that thing that sounds quirky and fun but so often goes terribly wrong: she wore the necklace in her hair. And by “hair” we mean that gigantic thing pinned to the back of her head. But y’know? It really works this time. She looks pretty fabulous, which proves that when you do things that T Lo doesn’t necessarily love, like wristwatches with gowns and necklaces in hair, and you do them with style (and diamonds), you can overcome T Lo’s initial wariness and even squeeze some compliments out of them. There’s a lesson in there for everyone, wouldn’t you say?
