SHADES OF GRAY: Gray, the emblematic color of Christian Dior and synonymous with London’s weather, is also the theme of the next Marion Cotillard-fronted campaign for the French house. Print ads depicting the actress aboard the London Eye Ferris wheel dressed in Dior’s cruise collection and hoisting a gray version of the iconic Lady Dior bag with a shoulder strap are slated to break in a range of December issues, including Vogue Nippon, Elle in the U.K. and France, and Vanity Fair in the U.S.
This represents the fourth and final episode of the handbag saga, which has also seen Cotillard pictured in Paris (on the Eiffel Tower), Shanghai and New York, each with an assigned color theme. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot the gray London scene, with hair by Julien d’Ys, makeup by Stéphane Marais and styling by Joe McKenna. Dior plans to launch a mini movie in tandem with the gray installment, to be unveiled to the press in London in late November along with a new Dior boutique on New Bond Street and a dinner hosted by Dior chief executive officer Sidney Toledano. The London connections don’t end there: Dior also plans to unveil a John Galliano-designed Dior Christmas tree at Claridge’s, and host an event to fete an exhibition of René Gruau illustrations at Someret House. “Dior Illustrated: René Gruau and the Line of Beauty” runs from Nov. 10 to Jan. 9.

It keeps getting fresher and fresher. I guess its a good ending to the four cities. They've saved the best till last, with Mert & Marcus.
The only thing that lets the image down is the hair. It doesn't look natural, looks like a Photoshopped wig.
gorgeous, but she doesn't even look like herself anymore. it looks like Miranda Kerr to me
I agree! ..the picture posted by Flashbang, Maybe it's the hair, but her eyebrows and her lips look quite different.. If I didn't know any better I would have thought they had brought in a new model for the bags!
