I love Marion Cotillard. I want to BE Marion Cotillard. The images are from her cover feature in Vogue August 2012.
She was the best thing about Nine. The musical with Daniel Day Lewis.
In the Vogue feature she wore a blue quilted velvet coat. I thought it could be made using Colette’s Lady Grey pattern but once I saw Gertie’s coat pattern with Butterick I knew I found the one. Now to find a blue velvet, likely not quilted, for this project.
(Sorry for the poor quality of this photo.) Marion also wore a velvet 3 piece suit in the spread. I decided that I needed a red velvet jacket…and possibly waistcoat, too. I won’t make the trousers as I don’t want to look too much like Prince.
Do you love MC? What do you think of a velvet mini-wardrobe?
What I’m listening to: U Got the Look by Prince
