AnOther Powerful Performance

Dear World,

Apologies for the lack of blog posts recently. I have been terribly busy with matters of much importance (such as shopping .. just kidding) and before I knew it, a month has flown by.

Anyway, moving on. I stumbled across a preview of the forthcoming issue of high fashion publication AnOther Magazine after browsing through a number of fashion blogs. I couldnt believe my eyes! Marion Cotillard graced the front cover and she looked absolutely amazing. I was stunned by her make up. The lipstick - red as blood, the eyes - smoky grey, and the glossy appearance? A work of art!

Parisienne, Cotillard won Best Actress for her stunning portrayal of Édith Piaf in "La Mome (La Vie En Rose)" and is the first French actress to win Best Leading Actress at BAFTA Film Awards since the integration of Best British Actress and Best Foreign Actress in 2007.

I bought a copy of AnOther magazine as soon as it hit the stands and I wasn't disappointed. There was a two page interview with the Oscar winning actress as well as 6 extra glorious images of her posing in the name of fashion.

I love the whole spread but if I had to choose a favourite it would have to be this one...

I can't really tell you why I love this one in particular but I can tell you that I adore Mademoiselle Cotillard, as an actress and a model.

The AnOther Magazine website features an excellent video clip of Cotillard's performance during the shoot that is well worth checking out, not to mention the images used in the feature.

I'd love to know what you think.
