Marion Cotillard mixed textures for Chanel’s spring 2023 fashion show during Haute Couture Week in Paris.
While arriving to the show on Tuesday at the Grand Palais Ephémère, Cotillard wore a deep black tweed Chanel midi dress, woven with thin blue, white and red stripes. For a preppy twist, the Oscar-winning actress’ style included a collared neckline, short sleeves and a button-up bodice.
The dress gained a bohemian finish from two front panels covered in woven pearl lattice, as well as dangling brown and black beaded strands mimicking the French brand’s signature necklaces. Cotillard simply completed her outfit with thin gold ear cuffs.
When it came to footwear, Cotillard laced into a set of glossy black leather boots. Her style included almond-shaped toes with thin laces and soles, complete with squared heels totaling at least 2 inches in height. The style added a rebellious boost to her outfit, mimicking its diamond-shaped trim with its laces’ silhouettes as well.
Cotillard was one of many celebrities making up a star-studded front row, seated alongside fellow actresses Tilda Swinton and Carole Bouquet to take in Virginie Viard’s newest collection in its Xavier Veihan-designed set. In fact, Swinton and Cotillard have been longtime industry friends since their 2008 Oscar wins.
Haute Couture Week showcases the newest collections from brands specializing in haute couture, renowned as the world’s finest garments made with intricate craftsmanship.
