Marion Cotillard Goes Makeup-Free for Italian Vanity Fair

Beauty & Style 7

Marion CotillardFollowing in the footsteps of Jessica Simpson, Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard is the latest celebrity to go without makeup on the cover of a magazine.

She appears on the cover of Italian Vanity Fair in a Ralph Lauren dress, and appears to have just been rudely woken from a nap by famed celebrity photographer Bruce Webber.

(Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm thinking Tyra and company wouldn't have approved of her awkward cover pose. Extraneous hand, anyone?)

I do applaud actresses who are bucking the Photoshop trend and going au naturel to make a point -- but I do have one question for Mademoiselle Cotillard ...

Would it have killed ya to brush your hair?

Seriously, where do stylists get the idea that no makeup has to mean messy hair, too? Check out Jessica Simpson's "totally natural" shot for Marie Claire, when she couldn't even be bothered to brush her golden mane out of her eyes.

I know lots of women who never wear makeup, yet all of them somehow manage to run a comb through their hair before going out in public ...


But not celebrities, it seems.


So good for you, Marion Cotillard, for unabashedly showing your naked face on a magazine cover.

But I'm dying to send you my boar-bristle hairbrush.

What do you think of Cotillard's sans makeup look?

I think in some ways it's done on purpose to make a point that one can't look good without photoshopping. I wish they would have combed her hair! It would have made the picture better. Also, that dress is ugly! It looks like she's wearing a blanket.

Seriously I wished I looked that good, hair combed or not, made up or not.

Aside from the messy hair, I think she looks really pretty in this, and I love the new trend towards no photoshopping and fostering a better body image in women.

I don't believe she's wearing no makeup at all.  It looks to me that she has at least a little on.  Maybe she didn't clean it all off the night before.  And yes, she should have at least brushed her hair or pulled it back in a pony.

If the "just rolled out of bed" look becomes fashionable, I'll just be a square with my brushed hair and a face that's gotten at least a little attention.

Tinted moisturizer and some bronzer are evident. But honestly, even kid's class pics are photo shopped now and also have blemish removal on pics. But the cover looks amateurish at best. I would never buy that cover on that magazine. :(

Her hair has been brushed, guys. It is highly teased; that look takes a stylist more time than, "running a comb through," it would.
