Marion Cotillard Goes Mental for L.A.dy Dior

John Cameron Mitchell's parody of the L.A. film industry is awesome.

Dior parodies the ostentatious and vacuous L.A. film industry in their new short film. Directed by John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), L.A.dy Dior is the fifth film in the Lady Dior ad series starring the lovely Marion Cotillard (Inception), who as the face of Lady Dior handbags has previously worked with David Lynch, Olivier Dahan and Jonas Akerlund. While Lynch's Shanghai-set film was undeniably fantastic, you have to hand it to Mitchell for being able to hold an Internet audience's attention for five whole minutes.

A satire of celebrity, L.A.dy Dior pokes fun at the L.A. film industry - winning quotes include "We love the movie, just can't wait to see it" - featuring a fed up and teary-eyed Cotillard getting ready for a photo shoot. After sitting through hair, make-up and various stylists gesticulating wildly about dressing room dramas involving glass eyes, she completely loses her shit, commencing a handbag-swinging temper-tantrum. It's worth five minutes of your time, if only for the beautiful clothes made from "Tibetan prayer flags laced with Aztec gold" and "the very latest in fallen palm fronds".

The ad was inspired by a short Richard Avedon film from 1973 starring the equally "lovely" Lauren Hutton. Check it out below:
