In her first English-language film, Big Fish, Marion played photojournalist Josephine Bloom. It was a supporting role, but she played the part to perfection. Since then she has acted in Public Enemies, Contagion, Midnight in Paris and The Dark Knight Rises, to name a few. Marion's breakout performance in La Vie En Rose, where she essayed the role of French singer Édith Piaf, won her the Oscar.

Marion is as good a fashion maven as she is an actress. On several red carpet events, the leading lady has stepped in looking like a million bucks. She was even named the face of luxury brand Dior a few years ago.
