WATCH: Marion Cotillard Rocks Out with Franz Ferdinand for Dior Film

03/05/2010 at 09:40 AM ET

Not that you had any doubts that Marion Cotillard could sing — she did win an Oscar for playing French chanteuse Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose and was nominated for a Golden Globe for her song-and-dance turn in Nine, after all. But as part of her other famous role, as the face of Lady Dior, the actress gives new range to her vocal talents with her second short film with Scottish band Franz Ferdinand, directed by Jonas Akerlund. Alternating between a feminine red dress and menswear-inspired tuxedo, Marion rocks out in the video, singing an original composition, the Eyes of Mars. And as you’d expect, the iconic Lady Dior handbag makes its own impressive cameo. –Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester

She’s got a great voice, she looks great and I really like the song. But where’s the handbag?? I missed it twice!

They use the texture as overlays at around minute 2.50 and again around minute 3.

p.s she didn’t actually sing in La Vie En Rose, she was lip-syncing

Franz on

The only member of Franz in the video is the guitar player on the right, who are the other people?

just a thought on

Are you sure she’s saying “Eyes of Mars”… maybe she’s saying the “Ides of Mars” since it is March and all. Or are my ears just being weird?

The ad is about the red lipstick … I suppose she’s replacing Monica Bellucci. She is quite surprising!
