Marion Cotillard Strikes Again! Covers Vogue Paris’ August Issue (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Paris August 2012 - Marion Cotillard by Mario Sorrenti

Marion Cotillard already snagged the cover of American Vogue’s August issue, (as well as the cover of UK Marie Claire) but apparently she’s still got more to give. Mario Sorrenti shot a close-up of Marion for the August cover of Vogue Paris. That’s got to be some sort of fashion hat trick, right?

The August issue of Vogue Paris aims to celebrate the Parisian dream and Parisian women in particular, and “who better to represent French women than Marion?” as ALAUU pointed out. In addition to shooting an editorial of Marion for the issue, Sorrenti also photographed models Kati Nescher, Doutzen Kroes, Arizona Muse, and Isabeli Fontana in the streets of Paris modeling 80 essential looks for Fall/Winter 2012-2013.

“I'm starting to get sick of the same subjects being used; Isabeli, Doutzen and Arizona…” Chanelcouture09 shared.

HeatherAnne agreed, wishing there were some different, unexpected models within the issue. “In keeping with the French theme, why not use French models as well? It seems strange to me not to,” she commented.

Opinions in the forums on the actual cover were not too favorable for the most part. “Seriously, you'd think the Vogues would coordinate a little better,” Heatheranne wrote. “Personally I think the Vogue US cover of Marion blows this out of the water and makes it look amateur. Fail on Vogue Paris' part.”

Helmut.newton posted, “Terrible cover shot. She looks like she has a migraine!”

Even though Marion managed to get on the covers of three major fashion magazines this month, none of the cover shots have really wowed us thus far. What gives? How can you mess up a cover when you’ve got Marion to work with?
