Marion Cotillard needs no real introduction. In fact, this French actress and her effortlessly chic sense of style can't really be summed up in the words of mere mortals.
Now, even before the whole Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorce fiasco, we've always been a firm fan of Marion Cotillard, her movies, her style, and of course her red carpet moments. Born in Paris, this 40-year-old actress embodies everything we adore (and envy) about French women. She's talented, she embraces her natural beauty, and she also happens to be France's most bankable actress of the century, her films accumulating more than 37 million ticket sales in France from 2001 to 2014. Impressive huh?
Starring in films such as A Very Long Engagement (2004), La Vie en Rose (2007), Nine (2009), Inception (2010), Midnight in Paris (2011), Rust and Bone (2012), The Immigrant (2013), Two Days, One Night (2014) and Macbeth (2015), Marion has long been deemed one of the most interesting and diverse actresses working today.
Let's not forget her turn in 2007 biopic La Vie en Rose, where she played the tragic French singer/icon Édith Piaf, a performance for which she received critical acclaim, and winning several awards including the Academy Award, BAFTA Award, César Award, Lumières Award and the Golden Globe Award. To date, she is the only actress to have ever recieved an Oscar for a role performed solely in French.
And Marion Cotilard's style? Don't even. Not only is she one of the many faces of Christian Dior, but her red carpet looks are the stuff of fashion legend. Oh, and did you know she also sings, plays guitar, bass guitar, keyboard and tambourine. And she's a spokesperson for Greenpeace. She's basically like, the world's most perfect woman.
Since October 2007, Marion has been in a relationship with French actor and director Guillaume Canet, and they have a 5-year-old son together Marcel. In the wake of the Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie divorce (to which Marion has been linked, but has denied having an affair with Allied co-star Brad) Marion has revealed that she is expecting a second child with Guillaume. And we couldn't be happier for her.
To to celebrate her awesomeness, here are some of our favourite Marion Cotillard red carpet moments for you all to enjoy. May there be many, many more...
