Just received the July Vogue magazine with Marion Cotillard gracing the cover, breathtaking as always. Watched Nine the other night and was sadly disappointed in the film, but not with Marion. Vogue has made a great choice for this month’s feature.

The “little sparrow” was four feet eight, drug-addled, fragile, a wreck by adulthood and dead at 47. Cotillard at 34 is long-limbed and luminous. She’s got the flawless skin, transparent eyes, and turned-up nose of a child, a generous, connected energy, and a steely capacity for concentration.” More here…
