^Marion is very successful that is true. But it would be neat to see other well known French women have a cover which is meant to embody "the French women." Two more well-known names that they could have chosen are Clemence Poesy, she's darling of the fashion world, or Berenice Bejo who's film The Artist was quite a success and I'm sure people will be looking to see what she does next. So while Marion is very successful in her own right I think other options for cover models exist too.

Yeah, well, the point of this cover is that Marion's got a movie coming out. VP has to support France's most famous actress and get on the Batman bandwagon.

The model in the preview of the long ed by Sorrenti = SCARY!!!

Reminds me of my aunt dying from cancer.
For me it's a Horror picture.

Awful cover, but the shot of the Alexander McQueen gown has gotten my interest. Stunning shot!

I have got to agree with you, especially your first post. I don't know much about Marion. I have never seen any of her movies and I am sure that with all the attention she gets she must be something special in films, but I think she takes terrible pictures. Her French Vogue cover under Carine, that i'm still not a fan of to this day, was better and did leave a fairly decent first impression despite the terrible make up.

Just because a major magazine uses an A-List actress doesn't mean the picture has to be a big bang, but there still should be some impact. I tend to think beauty covers of this type are the hardest to succeed in executing-you do want something special and eye catching and not just another 'pretty picture'. However, I don't think she is interesting enough in print to pull something like this off.

I think part of the reason why so many praise Carine is because in a way she did own up to what many people like to think French style is and should be. This cover, on the other hand instead of being infused with beauty and sexiness, is more awkward and looks a bit clumsy-not two words I think of when the french cross my mind....

Though she could just be in the same category of Julia Roberts, Gwenyth Paltrow, Beyonce Knowles (I know she does not sound right in the same sentence as the other two ) . Good actress, pretty face...but not exactly a cover girl.

WOW that must be some kind of record, both US and French Vogue great for Marion but really they could've done more. Funny to see that she isn't scheduled in any talk show or interview for TDKR promo and yet she's getting all the print work.
As for the cover, the shot is very awkwarkd, it looks like a lackluster version of Vanessa Paradis November 2008 cover

I think the cover is pretty, under i prefer this cover than her cover of US Vogue, but my fave is the one of September 2010, look forward for her ed.

The preview of "The Collections" ed, looks amazing, but in the same time scary of the arms of the model (who i don't know she is?).

The cover looks like Ellen von Unwerth shot it, not someone of Sorrenti's talent. It looks very Glamour, nothing rich or beautiful or striking. For the record of some good closeup Marion covers -

This looks like an outtake from a Lancome shoot. The text layout is very amateurish and the fact that it's red makes it even worse.
