We suppose it was not a question of if, but when Marion Cotillard would pop up on the red carpet in a piece from Raf Simons‘ debut ready-to-wear collection from Christian Dior. The actress was the first to wear a dress from his couture collection at the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises back in July, and this weekend she stepped out in a black minidress straight off the Paris runway for the Rust and Bone premiere at the BFI London Film Festival.
Cotillard can rarely do wrong in our books, and this occasion was no exception. The frock is simple, but the pleated detailing at the back and metallic Dior shoes (likewise from the Spring collection) keep the look from being boring. That’s not to say she had no competition for best dressed over in London this weekend, however. Elle Fanning wore a gown from Rochas‘ Resort 2013 collection to the premiere of Ginger and Rosa, which she paired with a pale green cardigan draped over her shoulders and lace neckpiece. The look was unexpected yet elegant — a great choice for the 14-year-old actress.
What do you think of the red carpet choices across the pond? And what other pieces from Dior’s just-walked collection would you like to see stars sport next?
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
