Generally speaking, fashion ads, no matter how high class, glossy and star studded they are, tend to be a bore. And while folks Jean Jacques-Annaud (starring Charlize Theron), Darren Aronofsky, Martin Scorsese and Sofia Coppola have all done work for fashion houses in the past little while, we can't say we remember them all that well. Leave it to "Shortbus" and "Rabbit Hole" helmer John Cameron Mitchell to create something actually worth watching.

Lady Dior Marion Cotillard John Cameron Mitchell

Generally speaking, fashion ads, no matter how high class, glossy and star studded they are, tend to be a bore. And while folks Jean Jacques-Annaud (starring Charlize Theron), Darren Aronofsky, Martin Scorsese and Sofia Coppola have all done work for fashion houses in the past little while, we can't say we remember them all that well. Leave it to "Shortbus" and "Rabbit Hole" helmer John Cameron Mitchell to create something actually worth watching.

The lovely Marion Cotillard is the current face of Lady Dior, a job which in addition to being a nice little bonus in the bank account, has allowed her to work previously with David Lynch, and with all due to respect to him, we think Mitchell has him beat. In "L.A.dy Dior The Film" (yes, the spelling is intentional), we find both the director and Cotillard sending up the outrageousness of fashion shoots to begin with. Yeah, it's an easy mark, and maybe not the most hilarious thing you'll see today, but it's nice to see a fashion ad not treating itself as High Art. Anyway, it's definitely worth a look and has one or two decent laughs.

Below, we've got the short film, the making-of video and the the 1973 Richard Avedon directed ad for Jun And Rope starring Lauren Hutton, which served as inspriation. [via Bleeding Cool]
