    Shower curtain

      /Really/ dry skin.

    • Is she wearing a belt UNDER her shower curtain? How is one supposed to keep up with these trends?

      •  You don’t wear a belt under your shower curtain? How do you keep up stockings? 😉

    • Spiderweb shower curtain. Halloween doesn’t want to leave just yet.

    • julesj

      Exactly what I was thinking. LOL

    • lilazander


  • Weird and risky and glamorous and I love it.

    • gabbilevy

      It looks stupid from the side, but the front works… probably on her and her alone.

  • Is she all “TLo told me I could wear anything Dior and look good, so now I’m proving that statement was bull shit”?  This…is Dior? 

    •  My thoughts exactly. “Those words will come back to haunt us!”

  • nannypoo


    • Clueless_Jock

      Yup. I think it’s awful. Cotillard looks best in girly dresses. This Dior caftan should be reserved for Andre Leon Talley.

  • SewingSiren

    I LOVE it. Stunning work of sculptural art. I would have guessed it was a Balenciaga.

    • Kayceed

      I read about a Balenciaga – I think from the early 60s – metallic body suit underneath a shear caftan-y dress – fabulous!

  • Dear god, Ms. Cotillard! It appears as though you’ve just walked nude through a huge spider web! ACK!

  • No. Not even on her. 

  • Pants_are_a_must

    A see-through cobweb plastic caftan. Yes, that’s EXACTLY what I think about when someone says “Dior” and “Marion Cotillard in designer dress”.

    • Corsetmaker

      It’s not plastic.

      • Pants_are_a_must

        So what? It looks like plastic.

  • It looks like a really fancy art smock.  Yikes.

  • ceceliadid

     Spider lunch.

  • Anathema_Device

    So, yes, it does look like a shower curtain, but for some reason I still like it on her. Go figure.

  • Amazing what you can do with tarp and electrical tape.

    • bionicgyal1

      I didn’t know Dior was doing Project Runway…

  • Janet B

    Certainly it’s not a dress for everyone, but I like it.

  • Carla_Charlton

    Like the whole thing, including the shoes.  Not a lot of people could pull this off, but she can.

  • alyce1213

    Is a red carpet movie premiere a good venue for a garment as bizarre and editorial as this?  That is the question.
    To my mind, no.  It draws too much attention to itself and away from the person wearing it. It takes over. 
    This belongs on a runway or in a magazine.
    And besides, it’s pretty ugly.

  • No.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    bedazzled spiderweb/caftan/showercurtain?…i cant….

  • B_C_J

    I applaud her for being fearless.  This is art and she knows it.  She is  breaking out of the mold of conventional dressing. In that sense, it’s fabulous. However, if you measure it by the standard of what is pretty and feminine, it fails. It makes a major statement and within that context I approve.
    Ms. Cotillard better hope that China Chow is not around.  Ms. Chow will rip that gown right off her back. 🙂

  • I think I like it. I’d love to be able to see if/how it moves as she walks.  Her makeup and hair are perfect, too.

    • Corsetmaker

      Click on the link under the model picture and then the dress is look 25 in the collection. If you click it there’s an option to see it in motion. I like it too.

  • Girl, that’s not your dress! ‘Shower curtain’ and ‘rain coat’ are both very apt descriptions of this horror! And no one had some hand cream/body lotion to rub on her elbows??  What are PA’s for, if not to carry every conceivable item for the person they’re hired to take care of?? Complete fail….

  • maria foulquie garcia

    I like the idea, and it ALMOST looks good in the first picture,but at the end…no girl, just let it go. It’s not working. At all.

  • the problem is not her, the problem is Dior without Galliano!!!! 

  • I’d LOVE this if it was fitted in the front, like a dress with a cape. As it is, I just like it and find it unusual and intriguing and attractive. I bet it looked stunning in motion.

  • charlotte

    She could wear it during her next pregnancy. There. I came up with a positive remark.

    • l_c_ann

      She could wear it to shampoo and hose rinse a very large dog.  (Although your positive is better.)

      • Pennymac

        She could wear it to paint her ceilings and still be well protected.

  • Lily-Rygh

    Ewwww.  No. Not at all.

  • susan6

    If a Project Runway designer sent that down the runway, he or she would be roundly chastised.


  • LadyCelia

    That dress is tragic.

  • Tracy_Flick

    Halloween maternity shower curtain.

  • A B

    What a freaky dress!  This would have made a good “In” or “Out”.  I’m still on the fence.

  • MilaXX

    Not exactly loving this. I think I like the top of this, but the bottom looks like she wearing a ziplock freezer bag. Still, if anyone could make wearing a ziplock work, it’s Marion.

  • Imasewsure

    Wedding dress for the Bride of the Fly! Weird – don’t hate it – but it’s weird

  • Scroll down fug.

  • unbornfawn

    This is a great fabric and would have made killer simple little dress. This shower curtain thing is awful.

  • That’s one of the oddest things I’ve ever seen. 

  • elleg929

    It looks like a rain slicker.

  • sarahk12

    Even the runway model looks fat in this. If I were Marion, I’d fire my stylist for it alone. 

  • I don’t know how in the hell she pulls it off, but she does.

  • Sara__B

    An unusual and striking gown, but not at all flattering to this gorgeous woman. Maybe it’s stunning in person, but doesn’t photograph well? Or maybe it’s just not a dress to wear off the runway.

  • Corsetmaker

    Why all the plastic comments?? It’s either chiffon or organza with sequins and the underdress looks to be sequinned too. I love the way the underdress sparkles through the chiffon. It’s very subtle.

    It’s really pretty when you click the link and watch the moving version. 

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    This garment is weird as hell, but damned if she isn’t making it work. I can’t really explain most of it…she’s just magical? I like the point of the shoes echoing the angular shapes in the pattern, and the simple soft hair swept up out of the way. The shower hair was a misstep…actually now that I look at her head I’m not so sure it’s working. Her makeup if pretty but the hair is giving her conehead. I can’t handle all this before noon. 

  • snarkykitten

    I guess she’s trying to prove to you boys that she wasn’t born to wear [all] Dior

  • MoHub

    Please! No more see-through dresses!

  • leave_Blake_alone

    the fuck?!?

  • it looks like the ‘protection’ that they wear in the love scene in ‘Naked Gun’. Massive body-size shiny condom

  • At least she’s wearing it better than the model.

  • frannyprof

    I love it from the front. Not so much from the side. Perfect for if you’re expecting.

  • marilyn

    Yikes.  Are we seeing her underwear there? 

  • Oh, that’s a bad miss from Dior.

  • Dr. Miranda Jones, from the original Star Trek.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    OK, Dior is just screwing with our heads now.

  • judybrowni

    Spiderweb schmatta mumu.

    Who would wear this? Pregnant spiders?

    • Pennymac

      OMG I’m laughing so hard I can’t catch my breath!

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    This would be better if it weren’t so shiny and stiff.

  • Annabelle Archer

    jeezus.  is this going to be the new “she could make a burlap sack look good” standard?  

    • meowing

      Designer burka?

  • tereliz

    Huh. The words “cloisonné caftan” spring to mind…

  • PastryGoddess

    is that…plastic?  WTF-ery indeed

    • Corsetmaker

      Noooo, it’s chiffon or organza with black sequins. Looks like the underdress is sequinned too and is glinting through.

  • Jesus, Mary, and Oprah, this is just hideous.  Was she on drugs?  Was her stylist on drugs?  Is the whole house of Dior on drugs?

  • No.

  • Corsetmaker

    This is actually really pretty when you click the link and see it moving. I’ll bet it’s one for in person. And of course it isn’t plastic, it’s chiffon or maybe organza with black sequins and the underdress seems to be sequinned too so it sparkles through the top sheer. 

  • Judy_J

    Designer rain poncho.

  • Nazzzy


  • I love it. She looks beautiful.

  • crash1212

    I think she found the second ugliest Christian Dior dress. 

  • It’s kind of another Dior FAIL. Looks like a plastic tablecloth.

  • Zippypie

    Shower curtain.  Yuck.

  • JauntyJohn

    It’s the new “Kiss of the Spider Woman” maternity line!

  • cleverlady

    OH, NO!  this may be the ugliest dress I have EVER seen on a red carpet or any venue!  Good grief.  what could she have been thinking?

  • lucasuk82

    Oliver, darling, I think Lisa needs another martini.

  • lrhoff

    Love this — her figure would normally be lost if it weren’t the see-thru shower curtain….sorry golden_valley commenter.

  • stacey avelar

    Between this and the mullet dress the other day I have to ask….Did Dior hire Stella McCartney?

  • Qitkat

    Even the fabulous Miss Marion cannot save this bizarre Dior. And I wanted to like it. So unusual.

  • quiltrx

    I actually dug this until I saw how loose and baggy it is in the back.  If this were a sheath that fit over an underdress, I think it would look really cool on someone like her.

  • Khaleesi1031

    cray cray!

  • Robert Wilson

    Was there a project runway shower curtain episode I missed?

  • decormaven

    I’m getting a 50’s movie sci-fi/thriller vibe from this. Attack of the Puppet People. It’s the undergarment’s plastic sheen glinting through the cobwebs.

  • guest2visits

    Maybe if this were cut completely differently – clingy and form fitting… it might work.
    As is; it’s totally creepy. She looks like she just walked off a sci-fi movie set…  she’s a giant insect in the pupal stage.

  • RzYoung

    oooo i love this!

  • pookiesmom

    Shapeless veiny grocery bag.

  • pugluv

    I can’t say I like the dress but somehow she is making it work.

  • If she put the belt over the dress I think this dress would be alot better because as it is it has NO form

  • lesmaha

    what an odd dress….I can’t figure out what’s going on!! 

  • PeaceBang

    “Kiss of The Spider Woman’s Frumpy Sister.”

  • It looks like a hair dresser cape…..

  • Trisha26

    Good lord that’s an ugly dress.

  • formerlyAnon

    I like it, even though it reminds me of something Phyllis Diller might have worn on stage.

  • ccm800


  • Can we give her an “of course” for wearing Dior?

  • littlemac8

    Epic fail!

  • She took of the shoes mid carpet!

  • Gabby Barnes

     This dress would not be so bad if there was less material and it was more slim-fitting. It gives off a vibe of being sexy because of the see-through illusion. Her hair and makeup is fabulous and the dress is way more glamorous than a shower curtain.

  • librarygrrl64

    This is ridiculous. Dior is just fucking with us now, right?

  • kathrineb

    Nobody was ever going to look good in that dress.

  • Dior bores the shit out of me lately.
