The Dress: A multi-colored silk bustier dress hot off the runway from Dior’s cruise 2014 collection, which was shown in Monte Carlo on Saturday in the midst of the festivities surrounding the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival.
The Wearer: Academy Award winning actress, Marion Cotillard.
The Event: The Cannes premiere of Guillaume Canet’s upcoming thriller, Blood Ties, which stars Cotillard along with Clive Owen, Zoe Saldana and Mila Kunis.
Why We Dig: We love it when art and fashion collide. And for his first cruise collection at Christian Dior, creative director Raf Simons clearly took cues from the paintings of early 20th-century Dutch abstract painter Piet Mondrian and the subsequent, famed Mondrian-inspired primary color-blocked shift dresses done by Yves Saint Laurent in 1965. This gown resembles a modern work of art with bold geometry, an ethereal silhouette and movement-heavy fabric that adds a nice feminine juxtaposition. In short, we think this is a way cool update on YSL’s iconic ’60s look. Not to mention that Cotillard’s nude lips and head-turning up ‘do are simply killer.
