CANNES, France - Taking an edgy style risk, Marion Cotillard showed up at the Cannes Film Festival wearing a short Maison Martin Margiela couture dress made of bric-a-brac from a flea market.

The gamble paid off beautifully.

Cotillard was the star of the "Two Days, One Night" screening Tuesday by Belgian director-brothers Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne.

Cotillard's colorful minidress in silk organdy and pongee, which sported a turtleneck, was make of myriad bric-a-brac including screws, beads, buttons and bits of beer cans from Paris and Brussels.

It came from the Maison Martin Margiela spring-summer 2014 collection and took a reported 67 hours to make.

The marvelous look was the most inventive seen at the festival so far.
