The French are known for their great style and impeccable taste, and French actress Marion Cotillard is no exception! Cotillard first received critical acclaim for her role as iconic French singer Édith Piaf in the film La Vie en Rose. She made film history as the first person to win an Academy Award for a French Language performance. Since then, she has also made her mark in fashion’s history by consistently being one of the most elegant stars on the red carpet. We love Marion’s style, because it is the epitome of classy and sophisticated. Her structured silhouettes and fit-and-flare pieces make her a classic femme-fatale. Marion’s style is a bit retro, always glamorous, and perfectly on trend, while staying true to her chic style. Check out our favorite gorgeous looks from Marion Cotillard in the slideshow below!
Zuhair Murad at the Critic’s Choice Awards
This floral-embellished dress by Zuhair Murad made quite the stir at the Critic’s Choice Awards this year. It put Marion on the top of the best-dressed lists of many fashion blogs, and we can certainly see why! The dress has a retro, 50′s-inspired shape, but the textured embellishments add a modern element.
Christian Dior at the Golden Globes
Marion made another show-stopping appearance at the Golden Globes with this fiery red strapless dress by Christian Dior. We love the draping down the front and the peek of black at the waistline.
Structured and Sophisticated
Here, Marion shows off one of her signature structured ensembles, pairing this sleek black jacket with a metallic belt to accentuate her waist. This chic, menswear-inspired look exudes a strong sense of confidence.
Spotted in another elegant Dior piece, Marion looks classy and polished as always while stopping on the street for a quick photo op. The light color of this suit contrasts beautifully with the sharp tailoring.
