Marion Cotillard for new Lady Dior campaign

Fashion house Christian Dior has chosen Marion Cotillard as the face of its new campaign for its Lady Dior handbag collection

The brand’s ad photos, which were taken on the Pont Alexandre III, features Cottilard at night posing on the streets of Paris. Here, you can see the 39-year-old French actress carrying three new versions of the Lady Dior bag as car headlights whiz by in the background. Her beautiful porcelain skin perfects offsets her monochrome looks from the pre-fall collection by Raf Simons for Dior.

The sultry campaign was shot by Craig McDean and is titled Electric City, a reference to Paris's nickname, the City of Lights.

In one photo, the actress is holding an eye-catching multi-coloured bag from the line while modelling a midnight blue jacket. In another, she looks ready for a night out in a navy one-shoulder dress, and a silver purse. In a third photo Ms Cotillard is seen posing in a fitted tweed coat that perfectly matches her brown leather handbag.
