Marion Cotillard’s shapeless winged dress: cute or a fug shower curtain?


I think quite a bit of Marion Cotillard’s beauty, and her style. She’s one of those women who can pull off even somewhat strange or unconventional looks just because she has the right attitude. But does she have enough attitude for this dress? Is it just me, or is this winged disaster of a dress totally unflattering and just… ugly? The colors aren’t even interesting, it just looks cheap and dated, like a 1970s shower curtain reconfigured into a shapeless dress. What makes it worse is that Marion wore this for the big London premiere of Inception. You’d think she’d want to look great. Not so much.

Leo DiCaprio was looking dashing, as usual. I’m totally with you guys that his face can totally be hit or miss now that he’s “filled out”. But you can’t deny that the man can wear a suit!

Lord, Ellen Page is really petite. But she looks pretty! You can tell that unlike Marion, Ellen doesn’t seem to care about fashion or have any inclination to be a fashionista. Ellen always wears black cocktail dresses. It’s her red carpet uniform.

How handsome is Ken Watanabe? I love him so much.

And guess who else was at the London premiere? Oh, Peaches Geldof. For no reason other than she’s so cool. I have to admit, she didn’t look terrible. Floral print plus tattoos – eh.

    FUGGERZ. And Peaches’s dress looks like it was made out of my grandma’s accent pillows.

  2. Samantha says:

    It actually looks like she put it on wrong, and it should be worn like a onesie. Its ugly ugly ugly.

  3. XYZ says:

    Ellen’s shoes are too big for her.

  4. lisa says:

    She is so beautiful to me.. and usually gets it right.

    NOT this time though.. MISS.. but I am sure she will be killer the next time we see her..

  5. Wench. says:

    She looks like Katy Perry, no?

  6. Kayleigh says:

    It’s like a collection of the most unflattering dresses. That black dress, ugh if it just fit her right she would look 100% better.

  7. snowball says:

    If Marion’s dress were cut straight across the bottom it wouldn’t be so bad. Still not great, but not so bad.

    Leo looks good, but I wish he’d do something – I don’t know what – different with the facial hair. It makes him look like an evil scientist. I don’t like the goatee with the little line of hair on the side. He just looks the same, all the time. Has he had a different haircut in the last five years?

    For such a young guy, he seems so old.

  8. Strawberry says:

    I dunno but her boyfriend Guillaume Canet is sizzlin’

  9. andrea says:

    dress looks cheap. looks like a polyester $19 number from strawberry. that shape is weird, but it could probably be pulled off in some other fabric.

  10. meme says:

    Leo looks devastatingly handsome in that first photo.

  11. Lady Jane says:

    Call me crazy, but I like her dress. Peaches looks like trash as usual. Her face is a different colour from her torso.

  12. Schozzle says:

    Ellen Page looks like she wants to die. Girl should’ve gone for pants.

  13. Miss Thang says:

    Shower curtain, for sure!

  14. Eileen Yover says:

    Dress is bad, Peaches is just ewww, and Ellen is so frickin’ cute! Love her.

  15. Rachel says:

    @ Strawberry,

    You are so right about Guillaume Canet, so yummy! Maybe that’s why I dislike Marion, although I thought he was super adorable with his ex-wife Diane Kruger.

  16. ering says:

    I think Peaches looks really good here! Why shouldn’t she wear floral prints with her tattoos?

  17. Larissa says:

    Fug beyond words!

  18. denise says:

    Not her best look , and Juno does’nt look comfortable in the dress and heels. She looks kinda awkward.

  19. rraven says:

    They all look like they don’t want to be looked at, and the knees of the ladies look shy, like they want to hidden way in trousers. Leo is in my opinion a very underrated actor, he should have won many oscars ages ago but I still think he will win, hopefully not one of those lets give him one because he has been denied so many times a la Kate Winslet.

  20. L says:

    Mmmm Ken Wanatabe

  21. malachais says:

    Marion looks great in anything, even that ugly 70’s scarf. Leo – perfection. Ellen – no comment. Peaches – did a cat vomit some old curtains?

  22. bagladey says:

    The dress is interesting but doesn’t seem finished, like a new/young designer made it him/her self and can’t quite sew and stopped at the first (beach dress) layer.

  23. Lulu says:

    French women can pretty much make anything look good.

  24. mojoman says:

    Well, at least her dress matches the carpet. Oh and Juno really needs to eat something, she is scary thin..look at her disappearing hips!

  25. ViktoryGin says:

    That sh*t is too atrocious to even grace my shower.

    Peaches looks presentable. Didn’t recognize her at first, what with her looking sober and not on her knees.

    Ken Watanabe….damn…..the hotness.

  26. MymaJane says:

    Maybe it’s because I haven’t had my coffee yet, but the dress isn’t crazy horrible. Would look much better with a belt though…

  27. émerveillement says:

    This kind of dresses are fashionable and a summer hit in France. So she may have been influenced by her native country tendancies.
    (Sorry for my English )

  29. I Choose Me says:

    If you ignore the dress, she looks beautiful as per ususal. Stupid frock looks like it was patterned after the contents of a petri dish. Blergh!

  30. lucy2 says:

    I don’t care for the dress, but I think Marion is just lovely.
    What an excellent cast, I can’t wait to see this film.

  31. GatsbyGal says:

    Peaches sewed that out of a bunch of pillows she stole off some random grandmother’s couch. Seriously, that print is godawful.

    And poor Juno, she’s got the body of a 13 year old boy. No wonder she always plays highschoolers. I mean, she’s 23…and she’s going to look the same for the next 15 years, mark my words.

  32. francie says:

    i like it, it’s different and very cute on her, i didn’t like it too much till i scrolled down, then the whole thing came together for me. hair goes with the look.

  33. kitvancleave says:

    It’s a Thakoon; like it or not, who knows who chose it for Marion to wear? Oh, well, this was the LONDON premiere, so as she goes about promoting INCEPTION you’ll have at least 10 more dresses to criticize.

  34. Mia says:

    Can’t stop LMAO at Peaches. The Brits are really giving her the impression she’s somebody.

    And look at that stance and stare: she agrees!

  35. Siren6 says:

    That style of hemline is all over the place in Asia right now. It’s not growing on me, but I’m not hating the dress. I think she pulls it off.

  36. trashaddict says:

    I actually like the print and the colors are quite flattering to her, might be what sold her on the dress.
    But the shape is atrocious, it’s at least a size too big for her and the neckline is British old-lady housedress.

  37. LBees says:

    She just looks like she’s kind of cold.

    And mmm… Marion and Leo should be a real life couple. They look so good together!

    Oh yeah, forgot about whats-her-face… Juno. She looks… You know. She’s wearing a dress.

  38. cherirlady says:

    I personally admire marion’s dress, the pattern is okay, but the shape is…weird. Ellen page looks innocent in that LBD, and peaches geldof…oh, the dress is like made from grandma’s tablecloth @_@’
