Marion Cotillard Awarded Legion d’Honneur

Marion Cotillard is an Oscar-winning actress and spokesperson who has captivated us with her performances in movies such as “La Vie en rose” — for which she won the award no less— and “Inception”. Now, the 40-year-old can add recipient of the Legion d’Honneur to an already impressive portfolio.

Unfortunately, events have conspired to turn July 14 tragic this year. Our thoughts are with the victims of the Nice Bastille Day attack and the people of France.

Awarded three times a year, the first at the start of the year followed by Easter and on Bastille Day, it is in fact France’s highest honor. The actress was among 650 civilians and military personnel whose names we were published in the government’s official journal, on a day that the country celebrated its independence.

In the past, Cotillard received the country’s highest award for artistic talent and holds the title as the first French woman to win America’s top acting prize since 1960. Among other recipients of the prestigious award announced Thursday were photographers Raymond Depardon and Sebastiao Salgado.

Off Runway: Tribute to Women in Dior

If you have ever wondered about all the famous figures to have worn Christian Dior since 1947, you should turn to France’s Christian Dior Museum, which is holding a special exhibition on just that subject. Housed in the iconic fashion designer’s childhood home in Granville, Normandy, the summer exhibition entitled “Women in Dior – Sublime Elegance of a Portrait,” (Femmes en Dior – Sublime elegance d’un portrait) runs from May 5 to September 25, 2016.

The exhibition pays homage to the stylish women – princesses, First Ladies, fashion icons, movie stars, musicians and more – who have worn garments designed by the French fashion house, exploring the relationship between the different Dior pieces and their famous wearers.

After being sketched by the designer, crafted in the atelier and presented at the traditional catwalk shows, haute-couture garments are carefully chosen by the women of the world. Selections are made in function of tastes and personalities or with specific events in mind.

“Women in Dior – Sublime Elegance of a Portrait,” organized by fashion historian and curator Florence Müller, honors these famous figures and the key moments in their lives that saw them create an unbreakable bond with the Dior pieces they wore.

The exhibition focuses on the elegant women who have showcased Dior’s dresses, garments and accessories in style, from 1947 to the present day. Their personality, style and key moments from their lives are explored through a selection of dresses, photographs, letters, paintings and drawings.

The Christian Dior Museum pays homage to Princess Grace of Monaco, Lady Diana, Leonor Fini, Olivia de Havilland, Jackie Kennedy, Francine Weisweiller, Marilyn Monroe, Charlize Theron, Liz Taylor, Mitzah Bricard, Edmonde Charles-Roux, Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lawrence, Marion Cotillard and Rihanna.

Among the exhibition’s striking portraits, Lady Diana can be seen on a trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1995, carrying the bag that would become the iconic Lady Dior. Similarly, Rihanna can be seen attending Dior’s 2016 spring/summer ready-to-wear show, held in Paris, France, in 2015.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a book, also entitled Women in Dior – Sublime Elegance of a Portrait, written by fashion journalist Laurence Benaïm and published by Rizzoli. The book takes a closer look at the famous figures who marked the history of the French fashion house, exploring their tastes, their memories and – of course – their Dior ensembles.
