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 ...
OR BEING PHOTOGRAPHED.
But not celebrities, it seems.
They equate the no makeup look with POSSIBLE MENTAL BREAKDOWN. Or DEEP, POTENTIALLY DRUG-INDUCED SLEEP.
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?
