Making quite the entrance, Marion Cotillard showed up at the 2012 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City earlier tonight (May 7).

The “Dark Knight Rises” starlet was a walking Christian Dior billboard, sporting a dress, shoes, and handbag from the illustrious French designer as she posed for the paparazzi.

The annual fete finds actress Carey Mulligan acting as honorary co-chair valongside designer Miuccia Prada and US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, while Azealia Banks is lined up to perform.

As for the celebratory occasion, this year's rendition of the Met gala ushers in the 'Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations' exhibition exploring "the striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras."

The display is described as being "inspired by Miguel Covarrubias's "Impossible Interviews" for Vanity Fair in the 1930s while featuring "orchestrated conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work."
