American Vogue may be getting an injection of that famous French je-ne-sais-quoi soon. We hear from a reliable source that French actress Marion Cotillard will cover the magazine's August 2012 issue.
Cotillard is set to star in July's sure-to-be-blockbuster Batman-sequel The Dark Knight Rises, and has a handful of other projects booked for later in the year, including critically-acclaimed French film Rust & Bone, set to hit US theaters in November. So, she seems like a pretty natural choice for the Vogue cover and even though this is still just a rumor, it isn't too hard to believe. Cotillard also covered Vogue's July issue back in 2010--so we guess the actress has summer appeal for the magazine.
Regardless, Cotillard would make for a nice dose of understated elegance, before what we hope will be Lady Gaga's outlandish, over-the-top September cover.
Would you be excited to see Cotillard on the cover of Vogue?
