Yay or Nay: Marion Cotillard in Dior Couture + Comment to Win!

Monday December 9, 2013 by Alexandra C.

I've got a big girl crush on Marion Cotillard, so anything she does is pretty much acceptable. Even this mismatched, kind of crazy outfit is totally up my alley. Marion has that perfect Parisian attitude to pull it off and the looks to wear it with confidence.

I'm a huge points fan. Whether it's collecting enough for free lipstick at the drugstore or earning enough for a flight, I'm all over it.
