Marion Cotillard

Earlier today I was looking at a picture of my grandmother taken in the early 1940s. I was marveling at her hairstyle. She had glossy dark brown hair looped and waved complexly, then carefully molded into an massive bouffant.

French actress Marion Cotillard, best known in the U.S. for playing Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, has a more contemporary version of my grandmother's coif. I'm glad, because it gives me the opportunity to post another picture of a stunning and talented non-blonde. If any of you receive the Sunday New York Times, be sure to read the interview with Cotillard in last week's Style Magazine in which she describes playing the iconic "sparrow." You won't regrette it.
