Cotillard designing bag for Dior

Marion Cotillard is designing her own handbag for Christian Dior.

The French actress is creating her own personal take on the fashion house's Lady Dior bag, of which she is currently the face.

The French fashion house has released a behind-the-scenes film following Cotillard through the design process, from sketching the shape to discussing fabrics.

She speaks about the type of bag she would like to create in the video, saying: "Actually, I'm torn between a rock and roll type or something extremely simple. I would still like to put a strong Dior symbol on it."

A statement from Dior said: "She has been the face of the Lady Dior bag since 2008, the epitome of a sophisticated and vibrant woman. It was, of course, completely natural that Marion Cotillard would go on to design her own bag, her personal Lady Dior, as modern as it is timeless."
