Marion Cotillard Has a Strange Rock n’ Roll Fantasy

Fashion/beauty brand Dior has us seeing red aplenty in this new commercial/music video featuring its Lady Dior spokeswoman, Oscar winner Marion Cotillard.

What begins as a lament about “finding perfection in chaos” soon builds up into a rocking tune called “Eyes of Mars,” which Cotillard collaborated on with Franz Ferdinand. The actress as always looks smashing whether traipsing through her red-filled surroundings and wistfully singing or confidently fronting a band (not actually Franz Ferdinand) and looking like one of Robert Palmer‘s backup performers.

She’s got the pipes as her filmography will attest to and director Jonas Akerlund–the man who helmed Prodigy’s infamous “Smack My Bitch Up” video–shows his softer side in this marketing push that we imagine is not a tribute to Chris de Burgh.
