Transformed into a flapper girl: Marion Cotillard works the 1920s look as she begins filming her latest movie

It may be 2012 but Marion Cotillard's latest role has seen her rewind to the 1920s.

The 36-year-old actress was spotted filming scenes for her latest movie in New York city and looked every inch the flapper girl.

However, Cotillard is in fact portraying immigrant Sonya Cybulski who is tricked into a life of burlesque dancing and prostitution.

The French star was obviously feeling the winter weather as she filmed in Brooklyn's Prospect Park and made sure she covered up in between takes.

Wearing a green silky dress with a long sheer tasselled garment over the top, it's no surprise that Cotillard teamed it with a heavy black coat.

She wore red knee-high socks and matching heels but when it came to walking back to her trailer, the mother-of-one changed into a pair of brown sheepskin boots and a parka.

She was surrounded by several other female actresses who all wore the same red lipstick as her, and some even modelled the trademark headwear from the 1920s.

They also wrapped up in brown blankets as they huddled together and tried to ignore the cold weather.

Also seen on the set was Joaquin Phoenix who plays Cotillard's pimp in the film, Bruno Weis.
