In or Out: Marion Cotillard in Christian Dior

Posted on January 18, 2012

It seems like forever since we’ve done a simple “In or Out” post; one person, one dress, lots of opinionating. Poor Michelle Williams has been waiting five whole days to hear the final tally on her outfit.

Marion Cotillard attends the Chaumet’s Cocktail Party for Cesar’s Revelations 2012 in Paris in Christian Dior.

What a super-chic dress. What a perfectly Parisian sort of look. A costume designer for a rom com set in Paris couldn’t possibly come up with a more appropriate look than this one. We are, as we may have mentioned from time to time, completely sick to death of black lace dresses, but we’ll take this version. Besides, it’s not so much a black lace dress as it is a white dress with some black lace elements. Black tights leading down to black pumps may not be the most interesting way to go and it’s kind of expected, but we have no criticisms of the look. What else would she do with her bottom half in January but wear tights? And once you make that decision, the black pumps become almost inevitable.

She looks really great – from the neck down. This is a cocktail party, so we wouldn’t order her to use a hair and makeup team to do her up, but surely she can manage better hair and makeup than this, right? Also: earrings.

IN! Oui! C’est si bon!

OUT! Non! Elle va le regretter!


Michelle Williams’ look, which was also, coincidentally, described by us as very Parisian received high praise and a vote of IN from the Bitter Kittens.
