 I suppose that when one is Marion Cotillard, it is practically all in a day’s work to pose in iconic haute couture pieces from the Dior archive — created by Monsieur Dior himself — and transform oneself into the “The Dior Bombshell” for amazing photographs by Jean-Baptiste Mondino as part of the Lady Dior web documentary.

Le sigh.  She looks so perfect that it almost difficult to be jealous.*

*Please note I said “almost.”

In the last installment of the Lady Dior campaign for Christian Dior, Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard finds herself in London as Lady Grey.  Previously seen in New York, Shanghai and Paris, the latest episode will premiere on December 8 at In the meantime, you can amuse yourself with a mysterious teaser.  Watch as Lady Grey makes her choice…(choice of what/who, I can’t yet be sure!)

I’ve included the previous installments for those not yet caught up:

Lady Noir (Paris)
Director: Oliver Dahan

Lady Rouge (New York)
Director: Jonas Askerlund

Lady Blue (Shanghai)
Director: David Lynch

In other (semi-related)news…I will be hopping across the pond for a week!  I’m hearing rumors of oppressive snow drifts and travel woes, but I’m putting on a brave face.  And my wellies.

Au revoir!
