As the face of Lady Dior handbags, we spotted Cotillard in a plethora of Christian Dior looks throughout award season, and it looks as though she's keeping her loyalty intact. Watch on for all the details. On Allison McNamara: Growze blouse, Vince Camuto blazer.

Watch the complete Givenchy collection come down the runway now — and be on the lookout for appearances from Natalia Vodianova and Erin Wasson!

For the complete rundown — straight from PFW — keep watching.
