On hand to celebrate some leading ladies, Marion Cotillard attended the 2012 Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year Awards at Claridge's Hotel in London on Wednesday (October 31).

The "La Vie en Rose" star looked pretty and petite in a black strapless high-low skirted dress and pointy white heels with a sparkly diamond necklace.

In the French actress's new movie, "Rust and Bone," she portrays a killer whale trainer. However, animal rights activists are urging movie-goers to boycott the film because it features whales in captivity.

The Oscar-winning actress admitted, "I’ve always had a repulsion going in a place where animals are in captivity. I had to work through my rejection of this world, which I still feel. But I had a job.”
