Thanks to our friend mata for sending in a brand new totally gorgeous Montblanc ad featured in the German magazine Gala.

Translation by mata: “To reflect, to take the time and be inspired by life, to watch people, their behaviour, their gestures. There’s nothing of greater importance for an actor.”

Which Montblanc ad is your favorite so far?

Gerald McMorrow, 38, director, Franklyn

Franklyn is pretty much an urban fairytale. It’s about four different characters in London, all totally disconnected but who end up together in the end. One of them, played by Eva Green, is an art student and is doing projects that are increasingly more complex and deadly.

Milo, played by Sam Riley, is a heartbroken thirtysomething, who has just gone through a divorce and is desperately trying to find his way back to purity. Ryan Philippe plays a detective on the streets of Meanwhile City, a city governed by religious fervour. It’s almost medieval! They were an absolute pleasure to work with, all three of them were incredibly helpful and made my life easier.

London is quite an amazing place where a lot of very strange things happen. I used an atypical and off-kilter background, and told a story that wouldn’t normally be told. The film was set around some tricky locations but we managed to shoot it.

I’ve added a few more photos to the gallery since the Dior update. I’ll add a few more if I ever find any. So keep checking the site and the gallery.

On another note, I couldn’t help laughing when reading the Libération’s article about the Dior show. They said that Emma Watson looked like a schoolgirl lost in the land of the vamps like Dita Von Teese and Eva Green.

Actually when you stop to see the weird faces some people do in the crowd pictures, that can be quite funny! Look at the lady in the second row, dressed in golden colors, behind Lily Allen, for example.

John Galliano heeded the call of the wild for Christian Dior on Monday, unveiling his “tribal chic” look for next summer which partnered tame silk chiffon with python and sharkskin.

In a tent packed to the gunnels with 1,500 press and buyers, he sent out a collection heaving with animal pelts and reptile skins cut up into jackets and coats, some ‘au naturel’ in black, camel and grey, but others dyed startling shades of orange and acidulic green.

Leather jackets looked as if they were battle-scarred like Zulu warriors.

Even the micro-mini silk skirts underneath the jackets, sunray pleated and often sheer, needed the legs of a giraffe to carry them off with conviction.

Galliano took his bow at the end in a sober black-trousers-and-waistcoat ensemble, to the resounding applause of a host of celebrity guests, including the ex-wife of Marilyn Manson, burlesque artist Dita Von Teese, the singers Lily Allen and Katy Perry, and actresses Eva Green, Milla Jovovich, Zoe Saldana (our dear mata’s fansite!), Marion Cotillard, Emma Watson and Elsa Zylberstein.

“I love the madness,” shouted Eva Green as she whisked into the Dior show Monday in a gray suit, looking every inch the schoolteacher she plays in her latest movie “Cracks.”

“It’s quite a dangerous story, there’s a lot of taboos, I play a swimming team teacher who seduces a student,” she said. She’s hoping the film, directed by Jordan Scott and set in the Thirties, will make the final selection for Cannes.

Lily Allen, who sat painting her nails with silver varnish from the gift set on her seat, said she’d arrived in Paris this weekend to record some tracks with Gonzalez.

Oscar winner Marion Cotillard of “La Vie en Rose” said she’ll be singing again in “Nine,” a new musical comedy set in the Sixties starring Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz that starts filming in October.

Accompanying her was film mogul Harvey Weinstein, who said he’s “in town to scout for a new Quentin Tarantino movie.”

Nearby, Barbara Bush, daughter of the U.S. President, noted she was in town visiting family.

Zoe Saldana, meanwhile, has just wrapped “Avatar” alongside Sigourney Weaver and the remake of “Star Trek,” alongside Winona Ryder. Saldana said her outfits, by costume designer Michael Kaplan, were far from geeky. “I wore very short, short, short dresses, it was petrifying,” she said.

U.S. pop singer Katy Perry is on a whirlwind tour to promote her first single, and is gearing up to release her second.

Emma Watson, or Harry Potter’s Hermione, could have used some magic to clear a throng of photographers and screaming teens who surged ahead of her coming out of the show.

Hobbling towards Place de la Concorde afterwards, a monochrome Roisin Murphy, who had road-tested one of Gareth Pugh’s articulated, armor-like frocks for the occasion, confessed she’d had a difficult time sitting at the show. “It’s not very comfortable,” she said.

Last but not least, Eva and her boyfriend, actor Marton Csokas, are still going steady and strong. They were spotted strolling in Paris yesterday dressed in black. I won’t be posting any photos here, but I thought you’d be happy to have some news of our discreet couple. Marton didn’t attend the Dior show though.

PS: And Tom can relax because Angharad is right behind Eva in the group picture. She’s wearing a blue dress. 😉

Our Top Affiliate Glamorous Kristin dedicated to Eva’s co-star in “Arsène Lupin” (and star of many other wonderful films), Kristin Scott Thomas, has changed links. It can now be found at: http://www.kristinscott-thomas.com 😉

And, also, a dear friend of mine opened a site a few days ago dedicated to the X-Files, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. I’d like to promote it here to help her get started. Pay her a visit. I’m sure she’ll love it and she deserves all our support! 🙂

I’m sorry for the shameless plugs. 😛

Today I’ve scanned an old issue of Elle Belgium (okay, not that old, it’s from September 2007 so it’s only 1 year old) for our viewing pleasure. The photo used inside the magazine was used in Elle France (thanks Kazou) and Elle Russia (thanks Mirik) last year was well. But the cover is brand new and I must say that I love it to bits!!! 🙂

Unfortunately, this is the Dutch speaking version of Elle Belgium. And I don’t speak Dutch. So, do we have any candidates for a translation? 😉

Oh, and, by the way, the BAFTAs 2008 coloured photo had already appeared in Night and Day last February (thanks Lorna).

It’s a claim that’s horrified the Sisterhood. But here one female author dares to argue that it’s true…

VESPER LYND Played by Eva Green in Casino Royale, she was Bond’s banker with a secret.
Feminist credentials: Vesper was Fleming’s first Bond girl, and one of his best. She’s a beautiful British agent who has been sent to help Bond – much to his chagrin – in his mission to confound the villainous Le Chiffre. After falling for her, he discovers that she’s been spying for the enemy. Rather than betray him, Vesper kills herself.
Feminist rating: 6/10. It takes a certain guts to betray Bond.
Most likely to say: ‘I can advance you ten million francs.’
Least likely to say: ‘You don’t mind that I betrayed you do you, James?’

Read more about the book and see what they have to say about other Bond girls at the Mail Online website.

Eva’s black dress at this year’s BAFTAs was one of the most talked about themes here this past week, especially because she chose to wear a white version of it in Moscow and Madrid. So to keep up with the BAFTAs theme, I’ve uploaded a photoshoot taken this year at the prestigius awards ceremony.
