Elsewhere, a debate started up about who had actually read “The Da Vinci Code.”

“I’ve read it and thought it would make a great movie, so I’m intrigued to see how they’ve interpreted it,” said Alberta Ferretti-clad actress Andie MacDowell.

“I haven’t actually read the book, but I know the story,” whispered a tanned and tuxedoed Valentino, who said he was in town entertaining on his boat. The designer won’t weigh anchor until after the Vanity Fair bash on Saturday night, which will be held in honor of, incongruously, Al Gore.

Marianne Faithfull, meanwhile, who appears in “Paris je t’aime” and plays the lead role in Sam Garbarski’s movie, “Irina P.,” said she was having a festival high. “It’s the second time I’ve walked the red carpet and it’s an amazing feeling,” said the singer-turned-actress, who was wearing Chanel. “It’s a completely different buzz to being on stage — it’s Cannes!”
