According to French media reports, the Inglourious Basterds actress has signed on to become the new face of Dior's Hypnotic Poison fragrance.

Celebrity blogs such as Pure People are buzzing with the news that Laurent - who has confirmed she will be wearing vintage Dior to the opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival as this year's host - will be joining fellow French actress Marion Cotillard as spokesmodel for the luxury house.

Insider blog Fashion Foie Gras is reporting that the contract in question involves the brand's mythic Hypnotic Poison fragrance, previously promoted by actress Monica Bellucci, but this is yet to be confirmed.
