Marion Cotillard brought the denim-clad Sister Wife style to a Cannes premiere

Cannes Film Festival 2021 - "De Son Vivant"

When in Cannes, expect the unexpected, fashion-wise at least. Marion Cotillard is a regular at Cannes and it’s like she saves up all of the wacky ensembles for this one film festival. These are photos of Marion at the De Son Vivant (Peaceful) premiere at Cannes. This Chanel gown is a lot. I actually like the color of the denim and I love the “print” on the denim. But the actual design and construction is straight-up Sister Wife, correct? Combined with Marion’s Michelle Duggar hair, she looks like she’s part of some French Mormon-breakaway cult led by a charismatic leader named Jeddhosaphah. I’d like to take this same printed denim and maybe make this into a sundress? That would be so much better.

Bonus Marion at one of her many photocalls… I’m assuming this is Chanel too. The overalls have a nice construction but this outfit is pretty terrible too.

Virginie Efira is Belgian and really beautiful. She wore a caped Dior to the Benedetta premiere. I generally find blondes-in-beige/off-white to be pretty boring but this is just the right shade and just the right dress. One of my favorite looks of the festival, honestly.

Jessica Chastain and Maggie Gyllenhaal attended the Chopard event at the festival. Jessica’s gown is Valentino, and Maggie’s Versace. Maggie wore her gown to several events, that’s how much she liked this one. As she should – it’s a great dress. I love Jessica in green but I loathe the cutouts on the side of the bodice.

Adèle Exarchopoulos in Fendi. I fear this would be me in Cannes: “Do you just have a simple pantsuit or something?” She looks over it. But chic.

Sean Penn is in Cannes to promote Ham-Face: The Musical! No, I jest. He’s promoting Flag Day, which is getting surprisingly great reviews. He directed the film and it’s based on a true story of a counterfeiter and con man (played by Sean Penn) and his relationship with his daughter, played by Sean’s real daughter Dylan Penn. Katheryn Winnick plays the mom – she wore Stella McCartney. Dylan wore Chanel.

    I noticed Sean looked… fresh, better than he’s looked in at least a decade.

  2. Lady Luna says:

    Haha sister wife. That dress is awful.

  3. Case says:

    I actually love the overalls on Marion! So cute.

    Jessica Chastain and Maggie Gyllenhaal look like they’re going to prom???

    • EnormousCoat says:

      Chastain’s dress gave me big prom vibes. I am generally not a fan of cutouts. That dress in particular looked like it was one loose thread from falling in a heap to the floor.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yeah the 90s teenager in me kind of loves the overalls look Marion has going there. But the denim dress is a nightmare.

      Jessica looks great in green, but I agree the style of that dress isn’t good.

  4. SusanRagain says:

    Sean Penn always looks like a mess, even in a suit.
    MC has got to be paid big $$ to wear such odd stuff to red carpet. I like the black jumpsuit for everyday, maybe.

    Some good, traditional styled jewelry.
    Mrs. Vincent Casale is a beautiful woman, that outfit is not. Looks like a bedsheet to me.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I think that Mrs. Vincent Casale looks fabulous!! Just the right amount of glamour and show stopping!! Poor MC in that denim get up though, yuck…
      I regard to MG and JC, they both look lovely except for the cutouts. I hate cut out and I thought they were done with those! They have been around for years, it seems. Maybe it feels like years as they never look right.

  5. Nikki* says:

    Katherine Winnick is a young looking 43, and Dylan Penn is 30, but sure, Katherine is playing Dylan’s MOTHER and Sean Penn’s (age 60) ex-wife. Because women in movies are always young no matter what. I’m SO SICK OF THE AGEISM. That being said, the denim dress is awful, but I like Maggie and Jessica’s.

    • SarahCS says:

      Not knowing the actual numbers/ages I did think they looked rather close in age just from the pic but assumed it was the usual requirement for women to look forever young if they want work in Hollywood. Ugh.

      • Laura says:

        I thought that both of them were his daugthers! HOW could she play the mom?!?!?! It would make more sense for her to play the daughter hahahahaha.

    • Merricat says:

      That’s exactly what I thought when I saw that photo. It’s gross.

    • Sunday says:

      I honestly couldn’t tell who was his daughter and who was the actress playing the mom so, not great.

      • EnormousCoat says:

        Younger women must look older, older women must look younger. But if you are 40, you can play a grandmother to a 10-year old, and if you are 30, you can play the wife of a 55-year old. No questions asked. If you are 60, you’re a mythical creature who pines for her youth. If you are 15, you are an impish sex kitten, tempting poor older men.
        Obviously Hollywood knows women really well and is dedicated to exposing all of our secrets.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      And even worse, Sean’s real-life current wife is also a blond and about the same age as his daughter. Coulda been a young blond trifecta if Leila George had been there! 😂🤢

    • clomo says:

      I am so over it.

  6. Amy Bee says:

    If the dress was a mini and the sleeves made short it would have been a good look.

  7. SarahCS says:

    I’m loving the lady in black trousers/top standing next to Virginie Efira. That gold thing on her hip looks like it could be a weapon if needed.

  8. Jess says:

    Marions dress is tragic in always, cut, color, design. It’s like someone got inspired by a toddler romper.

    Also, I have no idea which one is the daughter in the picture with Sean Penn.

  9. North of Boston says:

    MC’s dress … I feel like it could be beautiful if it was just a tiny bit less. Like if the sleeves and skirt were a titch shorter, the shoulders were a bit less poofed, the trim/seam were a bit narrower. With the heavy fabric on a petite woman it needed a bit more finesse so that MC would be wearing the dress and not the other way around .

    And MG and JC’s – my first though was that these dresses diminish them, make them seem less glamorous, capable, confident than they are. Not quite sure why.

  10. Thirtynine says:

    Don’t like Marion’s denim dress, it looks scratchy and stiff and uncomfortable. Tina Kunakey’s Valentino is luscious and extravagant and I loved it. It also suited her- it brought the drama, but still didn’t overpower her. The white Fendi pantsuit was a great idea, but just didn’t quite work, I think it needed a liitle more shape around the waist or to flow a little softer. Maybe the sash is too heavy and it drags everything downward. But I liked it. I would want to wear it.

  11. Gil says:

    I know Marion gets paid for wearing those shitty outfits but I really wonder if she doesn’t really have a saying on it. Like I cannot wear that because it’s a monstrosity?? I think that dress is one of the ugliest thing she has even worn, and she wears weird stuff from Chanel all the time

    • Susan says:

      100 percent agree. That is awful. The last couple years of fashion are a struggle for me: this prairie dress, midi and longer sister wife look only works on the really tall and thin and shapeless..and even then, its a questionable outcome at best.

  12. Chaine says:

    Tina Kunakey Looks magnificent! Now THAT is a red carpet look, how to do fashion.

  13. original_kellybean says:

    Redheads always look so good in emerald green but I agree – the cutouts really ruin that dress. And Sean Penn’s (and Robin Wright) daughter is so beautiful. Just like her mother.

    Also, HOLY HELL, that mormon outfit on Marion is so so awful.

  14. Holland says:

    I’ll defend Marion here. It’s easy to wear safe, uncontroversial gowns. It’s harder to have the guts to just have fun on a red carpet. I’m sure if you are privileged enough to attend these things over and over again, you are probably dying to wear something outrageous or avant garde just to alleviate boredom.

  15. Maria says:

    What happened? The ugliest choices ever, she always looks gorgeous, not lately…

  16. Sof says:

    Fine, I’ll say it: I’ve never liked a Chanel dress ever. I liked some of their casual looks but that’s it.
    My favourites are Tina Kunakey and Katheryn Winnick, I gues I’m having a dramatic moment.

  17. Bettyrose says:

    I really like the denim dress if it were mid calf and top button undone.

  18. Bella says:

    Poor Marion! That dress is awful and I honestly don’t know who picks her clothes. There must be better options. Virginie looks beautiful, but so does the French actress standing next to her. Very chic and sexy. Jessica’s dress looks like it is about to fall off and also the bust looks squashed and not very comfortable at all. Tina looks amazing! The two ladies next to Sean are gorgeous and as other people have commented, I can’t tell who the daughter is and the older actress, but Sean can look anyway he pleases.

  19. stelly says:

    I had to google Katheryn Winnick and Dylan Penn to see who was who. They look like they’re the same age! Both beautiful ladies, but mother and daughter? A bit of a stretch to say the least… Ham-Face looks like he’s posing with his two daughters here.

  20. Ann says:

    Not only is that dress ugly and unflattering, it doesn’t even look comfortable. I agree the fabric would be cute on a different style of dress, but here it looks burdensome and stiff. The overalls aren’t bad, but they would look better with a simpler shirt under them.

    I think Jessica’s dress would be great if instead of just bare cutouts, there was sheer fabric on the sides. So you kind of get the ethereal effect of a cutout but less flimsy looking? I had a very similar dress, in a shorter cocktail style, that had sheer panels and I loved the way it fit, so I guess it just reminds me of that.

  21. Bailie says:

    This whole Marion Cotillard look from head to toe is way beyond ugly and so is the overall black pant look, like she is about to paint the fence in her backyard.

    I love Virginie Efira’s beige dress, great make-up, lovely hair and the lady in the black outfit next to her looks wonderful too.

    Gyllenhaal’s red dress is very nice, Chastain’s green one would have been great without the cut-outs and Carla Bruni looks amazing in a simple, classy black dress, the pockets are my favorite part.

    The denim dress is beyond hideous..
