French Dressing – Article on Cannes style

Thanks to Eva’s management for informing me that “Franklyn” is due to start filming in the middle of September. Unfortunately, the producers decided that the cast should be a little younger: the three leads in their twenties rather than their thirties. The new cast is yet to be announced. Eva’s still in it, but the rest of the cast will be about her age. Even though this is sad news for everyone who wanted to see her co-star with Paul Bettany and Ewan McGregor (me included), we have no reasons to worry as the new cast should be very good too.
Today, I was contacted by the association Grandes Ecoles City Circle that organises regularly events destined to the French community of London.
They wanted to inform me of the voting, via Internet, for the “Frenchie of the Year”. This election will allow the net surfers to vote for the five most remarkable Frenchies of 2007 in five different categories who live and work in London and who represent a community of 10,000 people!
Eva is nominated in the category “Artist and Writer” (“Artiste et Ecrivain”) for her contribution to this area. The other nominees in the same category are: Marc Levy (writer), Sylvie Guillem (dancer), Yasmina Reza (writer, artist), Renaud (singer) and Noémie Lenoir (model and actress).
An awards ceremony is scheduled for this September (2007).
To vote for Eva, use the following website:

In the epic trilogy, comprised of the books The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, Pullman unlocks the door to a parallel world where strange creatures live side by side with humans, and humans share souls with animals. The books center on precocious young protagonists whose adventures lead them into battle against the ultimate evil with the fate of the universe in their hands. Pullman is the first children’s author to ever win the UK’s prestigious Whitbread Book of the Year prize.

Thanks to Aurore, we know that Eva is nominated for the NRJ Ciné Awards 2007 as Best Newcomer for Casino Royale. She’s up against other Frenchies, including the talented Mélanie Laurent who won the Best Female Newcomer award at this year’s Césars (the French version of the Oscars). The competition is tough but you can help Ms Green by voting for her.

27 years ago (July 5th), Eva and her twin Joy were born in Paris…
On this very special day

I hope you’ll always find happiness
In whatever you may do.
May all your dreams and wishes come true year after year!
British designer John Galliano marked his 10th year at the creative helm of iconic fashion house Dior with an extravagant fall/winter show in Versailles Palace inspired by Impressionist and Modern painters.
The fashion house, whose controversial creations helped build its fame, also celebrated its 60th anniversary with opulence that evoked the reign of “Sun King” Louis XIV, the 17th century monarch who transformed Versailles into a royal palace.
The fashion brand, cherished by the rich and famous, used the occasion to reflect on its evolution from Christian Dior’s 1947 “New Look” to Galliano’s theatrical dresses.
Models, who included Dior face Gisele Bündchen and Linda Evangelista, strutted in dresses inspired by painters ranging from Cocteau and Picasso to Renoir, Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec.
Luxury goods maker LVMH, the owner of Dior, threw a ball complete with classical music quartet attended by actresses Monica Bellucci, Charlize Theron, Kate Hudson, Ellen Pompeo, Zhang Ziyi and Eva Green among others.
Also present were film makers Pedro Almodovar and Sofia Coppola and singer and actress Marianne Faithful.
“I love him,” said James Bond girl Eva Green, in a Dior-designed Chinese pink satin dress. “He has the Dior chic and on top of that a certain madness.”
EDIT: Added bigger image.
The fragrance is described as an amber-y, rosy, and woody fragrance, which was created by perfumers Jacques Cavallier and Olivier Cresp of Firmenich in collaboration with François Demachy of LVMH.
The perfume starts out with fruity top notes of mandarine and bergamot, glides into a rose heart and leaves an amber-y and woody wake composed of patchouli, amber, and Bourbon vanilla.
The bottle, designed to be reminiscent of the sweep of Cinderella’s dress as she flees from the ball in the midnight haze, is a mix of celadon, cobalt and ultramarine blues, and its shape follows the design of Dior’s Poison bottles.
The outer carton is said to contribute to this celebration of nocturnal charms and is also inspired by the magic of the tale’s clock striking midnight.
The scent will retail between 22 Euros and 101 Euros.
Midnight Poison is slated to be out on September 3rd 2007.
Many thanks to Pauline for sending in some exclusive scans from the latest issue of Madame Figaro. The photos are very beautiful, very EVU. They’re also brand new and so is the interview! Madame Figaro made a special number dedicated to Galliano’s 10 year anniversary working at Dior and who better to grace the cover than the man himself and his new muse?! I translated the interview from French to English for those of you who can’t read French. It can be found in the Press Archives. Enjoy! 🙂
Eva will not be doing “Mr Nobody” after all. Jared Leto and Sarah Polley will definitely be in it but the actress who’ll perform the role that was supposed to be Eva’s wasn’t announced yet. The filming of “Franklyn” will probably start filming around August. Ewan McGregor is currently on a motorbike ride and Paul Bettany is filming “There For Me” in London.
EDIT: She didn’t take the role because of scheduling conflicts.
