Marion Cotillard stars in film; for Dior!

As if the pics coming in on the wire from Cannes weren’t enough to turn us pea green with life envy for the delectable Mlle Cotillard, (did you see her in that jumpsuit? Did you see it?) Now, in her capacity as the face of Dior, she’s starred in an 8 minute gem of a film for the megabrand, written and directed by king of creepy, David Lynch himself and art-directed by the very fabulous John Galliano.
 
It’s a teeny mini story, involving the wide-eyed French beauty, a rather delectable patent quilted Dior handbag and a handsome stranger. Oh – and rather a lot of soft focus wibblyness, a narrative which unfolds mainly in flashback and a hauntingly unsettling soundtrack composed by the director himself.

Set in Shanghai, (the site of the Dior Cruise show last week and a ginormous emerging market for all the luxury brands) So if you are bored of staring out the window, this little vignette should certainly bring a weirdly beautiful twist to your afternoon. . . as well as whet your appetite for a little light handbag shopping to say the least.
