French actress Marion Cotillard is once again the face of Lady Dior. The new “Lady Blue” campaign marks Cotillard’s third stint with the label. Steven Klein shot the ad in Shanghai, and the view is picture perfect. John Galliano chose the right woman for Lady Dior because she’s beautiful, yet there is a complexity about her that is very enchanting. Cotillard was also featured in a 12-minute film shot by David Lynch for the house that will debut on May 15th. Not so coincidentally, Galliano will also unveil Dior’s cruise collection in Shanghai on that same day. It appears having an actress as your model really does pay off, she gives great face and good acting. Annie Leibovitz shot the second ad, the “Lady Rouge” campaign with the actress, and you can watch the behind the scenes footage of that shoot in the video below. Both the bags and shoes could leave you with the age old dilemma of rent or shoes.
