Marion Cotillard not only makes cage heels look dainty, she seems totally unconcerned about the possibility of her breast popping out of her dress. Now, that's sang-froid.

Anna Kendrick looks lovely! And I'm especially impressed since I tend to prefer splashier, more colourful things.

Only tangentially related, but has anyone else seen the movie "Rocket Science" with Anna Kendrick? Anyone? Nobody seems to have heard of it. :-(

It came out a couple of years ago but I just saw it and I LOVED her in it! She plays a driven, Tracy Flick-style high school debate star, and she's excellent.
