Viva la French

I have two words for you, grand dame. I recently worked with Marion Cotillard and Stephane Marais on a Vogue cover shoot. Marion showed up by herself, no entourage in tow. She is a tiny little thing with a soft voice, a lovely combination of femininity and power. The woman is smart, her skin flawless and her eyes the color of the sea. In Stephane's stunning makeup, she looked ethereal, a gorgeous creature from another time. Marion had recently returned from a 3 day energy healing trip. Even though her life has exploded since winning the Oscar, she has maintained composure and a secure sense of self. She is a brilliant actress and beautiful soul, straight from the inside out.
