Marion Cotillard Street Style Double Shot

Posted on June 04, 2014

Her last few contractually obligated red carpet looks have caused weeping across the land, so we feel it’s our duty to show what Miss Marion is sporting on her down time, when she just wants to be herself and doesn’t have to wear dresses that look like rubbers or ghost children.

First up, Lumberjack Chic:

It’s a goddamn shame that she’s been forced into a succession of increasingly horrifying Diors and THIS is the most “French film star” she’s looked in ages. Something’s wrong when the House of Dior can’t even manage to make Marion Cotillard look like a French movie star.

Everything here is adorable. Low-key chic.

Later, Marion decided to get down with her funky fresh self, ’90s-style:

It’s so hilariously unexpected – and strangely, somehow well put-together – that all we could do is burst out laughing and then applaud the look. This isn’t so much “’90s hip hop” as it is “elderly ’90s hip hop record producer, ”  which is  delightful on her, for some reason. Well played, Miss Lady. We hate this look top to bottom, but at the same time we love it for being so boldly off-kilter and out of left field.

  • smayper

    She makes sweatpants look chic.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      And the Diors are so bad even she can’t save them.

  • Coleen

    I wish she’d worn the first pair of pants for both outfits.

    • kimmeister

      The drawstring waist on those second pair of pants . . . I just can’t.

      • Plus the seriously dropped crotch. I don’t care how cool they’re supposed to be in Europe (according to Alexandria from the last season of Project Runway). They are poopy pants.

      • Raspberry2012

        I just can’t with the whole outfit! You’re being kind by just focusing on one thing. The whole look is just YIKES!

        • demidaemon

          And, sadly, still not as horrifying as the Diors she has traipsed about in recently.

  • Danielle

    A damn shame Dior can’t pull their heads out of their asses, she looks incredible in the first set.

  • Alyssa

    I love everything but the sunglasses in the first look…the second look cracks me up, but in a good way!

  • @Biting Panda

    Thank you, Uncles. I was worried that she herself was supportive of the shittery that House of Dior has been thrusting upon us. I can see now, that she still has her faculties and what she really needs is a lawyer who can break that contract.

    • Dior: Ruining the stars you love, from J-Law to Marion

  • Anna

    I’ll take hip hop Marion, elderly or otherwise vs. “Quel Horreur, Dior” Marion anytime. I love both looks, especially the Breton stripes.

    • Kristin McNamara

      When they wrote “hip hop” I thought for sure we were about to get a sick “hip-breaking” joke about her in that second outfit……

  • kirkyo

    Is that an ice cube print? If so, I love it even more.

    • kimmeister

      More like DJ Jazzy Jeff. *rimshot*

  • RussellH88

    Those pants look so comfortable. That’s all I’m taking away from this.

  • NMMagpie

    Much more like it.

  • MilaXX

    First look is fine, but that second look is Chloe & her alters level of bad.

    • @Biting Panda

      LOL – it is not. Is she wearing a silk, elastic waist Jacket and jazz shoes? Yes, she is. But DELIGHTFULLY so. : )

  • FibonacciSequins

    I would probably agree with you on Look 2 if I hadn’t just seen Look 1. I don’t know why she packed more than that, it was perfect.

  • ChaquitaPhilly


  • abfidy

    Picture #1: She’s so hot, I can’t even take it.

  • lunchcoma

    The only thing I don’t like is how she’s wearing that yellow bag across her stomach in I’m a Tourist Who’s Afraid of Purse Snatchers fashion (which is fine if you are a tourist, but a bit silly if you’re being trailed by a bodyguard and a pack of paparazzi).

    • alyce1213

      Granted, I have no paps or bodyguards trailing me, but I’ve lived in NYC my whole life and always wear a bag like hers just the way she is. Once was enough to have a bag snatched off my shoulder. The gal behind her in the yellow shirt is asking for trouble.

  • I do hate the positioning of her yellow bag. i get that she’s showing it to the Folk, but REALLY now.

    • Beardslee

      Well sometimes it’s more comfortable to wear it that way, to avoid it banging into your hip as you walk.

      • leahpapa

        Seconding that; when I wear a cross-body, it almost always slides around either to my pelvis or my rear on its own.

        • alyce1213

          Thirding that. And it’s the right way to wear it on the street.

          • Introspective

            any of us who grew up in nyc’s purse snatching days of the 80s knows way better than to have a crossbody fall anywhere but in front of your pelvis at all times…

      • kimmeister

        Also, the strap doesn’t slide off slopey shoulders when worn cross-body.

  • I’m getting too much David Silver on the second look.

  • thecitysleeps


  • Mothra

    I don’t care for those pleated cropped pants in the second look at all.

    I also don’t like the shoes, the tops or the hat. The sunglasses are ok.

  • gloriana232

    OMG, Marion Cotillard is wearing mid-rise jeans with a tucked top. Thank you. Please make this a thing so I feel good when I wear that. (Low-rise jeans just CUT into you.)

    • kimmeister

      And you cannot tuck tops into low rise jeans without throwing your proportions all to heck.

    • Carleenml

      I clapped like a girl, too.

    • JulieTy

      That was my first thought — WHO MAKES THOSE?!?! They actually fit a grown woman’s shape! I need them in every color. Does anyone know the brand?

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Marion just struck a blow for womankind, particularly those women who are not built like a teenage boy(read: no hips)

  • Wink

    The second look says, “I ran out of clean clothes while visiting my parents, so I’m wearing an assortment of their clothes.”

  • That first look is so fabulous. It hurts all the more that Dior can’t get their shit together this season.

  • LilyVanessi

    Love the first look. And thank you for wearing a cross-body bag across your body like it was meant to be worn. That’s the way us mortals sport it.

  • hmariec19

    That second look: Marion Cotillard, drunk in SoHo.

  • littlevase

    “elderly ’90s hip hop record producer”. I just wanted to see that again.

  • MarieLD

    The past few days have been unbearably hot and humid (in NY). Why is she not even showing any signs of sweat? Is it a French thing?

    • SugarSnap108

      I have witnessed French people sweat. Maybe it’s a “French film star” thing.

    • demidaemon

      It probably takes a bit more to encourage their sweat glands to produce, seeing as how they are so anti-air conditioning. Unless that has changed recently?

  • Thomas

    She cleans up well when she’s not in Dior. Never thought I would have to utter that sentence.

  • alyce1213

    I love plaid on the bias, it always chics it up — great shirt. And I like that she’s wearing her bag correctly for the street. I like both outfits, actually. She looks cool and fun.

    • kimmeister

      I have a sleeveless top in that exact print, on the bias, and I love it. The bias is why it’s never even occurred to me that it was lumberjack-y.

  • SugarSnap108

    First look is adorable, and so normal. Second look … I used to wear those shoes to jazz class in the 90s.

  • Lori

    I legitimately like the shirt in the 2nd look and I can’t be mad at the Keds. The rest of it is just hilarious. Do not try this at home, people. It will not work on you. Trust.

    • Miss wks

      actually, home is the ONLY place you should try this…..

      • Lori

        Maybe if you live alone. If you have pets, small children or easily startled housemates you shouldn’t try it even there 🙂

  • suzq

    I was just in SoHo a few weeks ago. Everyone dresses like that. She nailed it cold.

  • elemspbee

    omg that second look. those pants. yaix. love the shoes though.

  • decormaven

    Second look – cue “Cantaloop – Flip Fantasia.”

    • Sarah

      OMG that’s awesome. I was just in a gas station like fifteen minutes ago wherein they were playing Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch, and now you have added to my throwback in an even more amusing fashion.

      • kimmeister

        My Tues/Thurs fitness instructor regularly has Marky Mark in his rotation for our classes. That’s how I get my good vibrations, yo.

        • Sarah

          I think that Marky has found much love from the fitness community. I seem to remember that song being on a mix CD I once had that was supposed to be for working out, too.

          • kimmeister

            My fave song that he uses is “Runaway” by Bruno Mars. I totally get my groove on to that. And as odious of a song as “Blurred Lines” is, I have to admit it has a pretty good beat for working out.

          • demidaemon

            They should consider creating an instrumental version, therefore reducing hate vibes. Or maybe the hate vibes encourage exercise?

  • Miss wks

    Good gawd almighty….that cut/length of pant looks good on NO ONE

  • DagnyReardon

    Maybe she was on her way to visit the 9-11 memorial.

  • msdamselfly

    She is just so adorable.

  • nannypoo

    I would wear both these outfits. For the second one, though, I would attempt to find pants that fit and I would leave off the hat. She looks adorable.

  • Sarah

    I actually really like that ice cube track jacket. But I will not deny that I also covet Ali G’s wardrobe.

    • Qitkat

      I have learned to google before putting my foot in my mouth here when I’m not clear on something. I thought you were talking about Nadia G on the Cooking Channel, lol!

      • demidaemon

        What’s wrong with Nadia G? i find her wardrobe quite covetable, and I’m a gay man.

        Maybe that explains it?

        • Qitkat

          Not a thing. I think Nadia G is a hoot, and love her crazy style. I confused Ali G with Nadia G. Sometimes I get a little mixed up pop culturally 😉

          • demidaemon

            Who is Ali G, by the way?

          • Qitkat

            Apparently one of (actor, comedian) Sasha Baron Cohen’s alter egos. I don’t follow his work at all.

          • demidaemon

            Oh. Yeah, I don’t blame you, as I don’t follow his work either, except when its being blasted everywhere.

  • marlie

    I hate the second outfit (even though it’s still better than Dior), but the first one is absolutely adorable.

  • Imasewsure

    As you say dear uncles, she looks like Pharrell in about 20 years (but trapped in a 90’s time warp) and yet it is adorable… stupid hat and all

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    Is that second outfit a jumpsuit? I keep staring at the waist and I just can’t tell.

    • Boulderista

      Jumpsuit … or a romper. I love the idea of the stripes and drawstring waist but it’s still dreadful.

    • alyce1213

      Separates. Black drawstring pants with a Breton striped (navy stripes) top.

  • elirt

    It’s refreshing to see her style when off the clock – still chic and very french. LOVE.

  • TLJezebel

    She is so tiny! The Dior pieces she’s been wearing lately make her look much larger than she is.

  • ashtangajunkie

    The first look is cute, but I cannot stop looking at the second. It has honestly made my day. She’s rocking a rhyme that’s right on time.

    • Annistella

      On no you di-ent! (Z snaps)

  • cocohall

    Where are the boob panniers? Oddly, now I miss them . . . . .

  • Qitkat

    Thank you Marion, I knew you were still in there somewhere 🙂

  • conniemd

    Both outfits look exceedingly comfortable. And flat shoes. And sneakers.

  • Nancy Arseneault-Heald

    If she’d take off the jacket in the second look, I wouldn’t hate it.

  • Dollhead

    I love those lace flats in the first set- they look like French lingerie for your feet. Does anyone know who made them?

  • Raspberry2012

    “Hilariously unexpected” and “Elderly 90s hip hop record producer” – this is why I keep coming back, boys, this is why I keep coming back! (*Dying!*)

    The first look is really super cute, though, I do love it. The second one? Uhhh… I dunno. It has a little too much of that “hint of circus” about it!

  • LadyVimes

    That first outfit is so cute! Those flats! That purse!

  • Constant Reader

    But… but… but shoulder pads! Are we going to be assaulted with the worst of the 80s AND a return to the 90s at once? I need my smelling salts. [I am assuming that what is fashionable in France now will show up here in a year or two.]

  • Gorengirl

    I had outfits just like these when I was in high school– though mine were not designer, and much cheaper Im sure than what shes wearing. She looks terrific

  • Thundar99

    The 1st pic of “Funky Fresh 90’s” looks strangely like a Jude Law impersonation.

  • Meri

    I think the last one is working because 1: Marion Cotillard, and 2: “Elderly ’90s hip hop record producer” sounds like a GREAT person to sit next to. Think of the stories!

  • dschubba

    There’s nothing hip-hop about that second look

  • Shawn EH

    1st look: Jean Seberg, Breathless. 2nd look: Billy Joel on the yacht.

  • snarkykitten

    I can’t with that second look. My grandmother dressed like that.

  • demidaemon

    Drawstring pants are the devil’s work. Love the first look, by the way.

  • Amel

    She’s so effortlessly beautiful. Ah, to be French …

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Especially like the first look, and after the latest Dior horrors, if Marion wants to wear baggy pants and a hat from Johnny Depp’s “Bad Hat Harry” collection, she’s entitled.

  • macwell

    I’m sorry, but all the outfits that have been chosen for her for her pole dancing events have done the design house a great discounts service. 🙁

  • Michelle Lim

    very cute. Said it before, will say it again. House of Dior needs some major design reviewing.

  • Annistella

    I had been feeling meh about the Miss Dior bags. Not particularly directional and when deployed on the red carpet they just look so damn obvious. Yet, when Ms Cotillard is left to her own devices, that delightful yellow small satchel draped over her just pops, and looks so effortlessly stylish and practical that I musthaveitnow. This, House of Dior is the feeling that all your pieces should always engender- a slightly obsessional focus. Oui.

  • Pterodactyl111

    The pants from the second look needs to be taken from her and burned.

  • KinoEye

    “Elderly ’90s hip hop record producer.” Another archetype under the Elderly umbrella, and I love it.

    I would wear everything she’s wearing in the first set of photos. Especially that shirt. I’ve got a weakness for lumberjacky shirts, and that one is not only gorgeous, but looks very well-made.
