Now this is what we call a vintage vixen!
Marion Cotillard scored a cover on Dior's first print magazine, and we're loving every bit of her structural look!
For the Jean-Baptiste Modino shot, the French actress wears Dior's iconic 1947 New Look design that includes a Bar jacket, flare skirt, chic hat and perfect black gloves.
Dior chief executive officer Sidney Toledano opened up about why

The head honchos at Christian Dior have finally made some sort of decision as to who will play creative director.
Rumor has it CEO Sidney Toledano was deep in talks with Raf Simons, but when the ex-Jil Sander creative director asked for too much money like Marc Jacobs, negotiations came to a screeching halt.
Instead of finding a replacement, Toledano took the easy way out and extended Bill Gaytten's contract for another six seasons.
Ugh. Why can't they pull the trigger already and make an actual decision?
If they're looking for another John Galliano they're not going to find it so why not just hire the man back already.

Christian Dior announced on Tuesday they are firing John Galliano.
The termination comes just one day after a damning video surfaced where the creative director clearly said he loves Hitler.
Chief executive Sidney Toledano said in a statement:
"I condemn with the greatest firmness the comments made by John Galliano, in total contradiction with the essential values which have always been defended by Christian Dior."
Galliano has served as Dior's creative director for nearly 15 years so it'll be inneresting to see who takes his place.

Christian Dior designer John Galliano was arrested Thursday night after hurling anti-semitic insults at a couple in a Parisian bar.
According to a police source:
"We arrived extremely quickly and managed to break up the disturbance. The man involved was briefly arrested and then released pending charges for assault. Witnesses said he swore heavily, using anti-Jewish insults, before attacking a couple. Both have provided witness statements, as have a number of other people at the bar, including staff."
The source added John would be facing criminal charges and is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
Following his arrest, Chief Executive Sidney Toledano released a statement, saying Galliano would be suspended of his responsibilities pending an inquiry.
