French beauty Marion Cotillard is a stunning vision as she wears some of the seasons most decadent pieces. The fitted dress, with bow detail in picture three is It attests to the fact that a dress doesn't have to show all of one's "goods," to exude sensuality. The looks in pictures five, six and seven are also favorites.....oh those details! Photographing her, with what appears to be a vintage camera is a nice touch; that "I was on my way somewhere, and saw something so beautiful, that I just had to get a picture" look. Spectacular!
