Marion Cotillard proves once again that the smartest thing Christian Dior has done in recent years is choose her as one of its brand ambassadors. Photographed by Peter Lindbergh in the Oscar Niemeyer-designed Communist Party Headquarters in Paris, Marion literally looks like she’s glowing in the latest Lady Dior handbag ad. She and the dramatic background are so eye-catching that they almost make you forget that the crocodile and raffia version of her handbag is kind of hideous.
Forum members are hoping that there’s no end in sight to Marion’s relationship with Dior. “How long is her contract for exactly?” asked Chanelcouture09. “I really do thoroughly love the new campaign image.”
Fantastical posted, “Keep em' comin’! I could have her as the face of the Lady Dior bags until the end of time. I just really enjoy these ad campaigns. Marion fits the brand so well. Needless to say, I love this.”
Expect to see this ad campaign in May fashion glossies like Tatler, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Elle, W, French Vogue, and Madame Figaro.
