Marion Cotillard, a muse devoured by red in W magazine.

Shot by Tim Walker for W magazine, Marion Cotillard is the muse devoured by red in W's December cover that was just chosen as one of TIME's Top 10 Photographic Covers of 2012.

Perhaps it’s her large haunting blue eyes or her innate elegance, but ­Cotillard always looks like she’s harboring a deep secret. That tantalizing sense of privacy is what makes her characters so intriguing. _ Times.

“It is much easier for me to understand something vast and complex than something light and uncomplicated,” Cotillard explained. “Perhaps that makes me very French.” She laughed. “Tragedy is almost always interesting to me.”

And the infamous cover... check my previous post.

Maison Martin Margiela and H&M Nude Heels

Famed choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker created an unprecedented and hypnotizing performance, set on sand squares, which ran throughout the evening across different floors. The choreographer and her dancers removed garments while performing, creating live and spontaneous art installations across 9 floors of 5 Beekman Street, a historical building in NY financial district.

The capsule collection of Maison Martin Margiela and H&M is mesmerizing, the packaging tactile and seductive, but the highlight is the leather shoeware with nude plexi heels, just superb. Got a pair.

When will we overcome it?
When are we going to learn?

After this movie Chaplin had to exile to France.
