PAINTED LOVE: After ogling countless masterpieces by Renoir, Manet, Ingres, Goya and Titian at the opening of the “Picasso and the Masters” exhibition at the Grand Palais Monday night, actress Eva Green was asked for her impressions. “Oh, it was all right,” she shrugged, with arch irony.


The staggering works fired up the fatigued fashion flock, including the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs (in Bottega Veneta), Empress Farah Pahlavi, Jacqueline de Ribes, Bernadette Chirac and Dennis Hopper, who later supped with exhibit sponsor Bernard Arnault of LVMH in the shadow of his treasured Richard Serra. During a brief predinner speech, Arnault remarked on how odd it felt viewing such artistic riches on a disastrous day for global markets. His takeaway?

“I guess Picasso is a good investment,” he said, to much laughter.
Actress Mylène Jampanoï said she soon would be in a film about Serge Gainsbourg, which had her relishing the androgynous costume possibilities. “Gainsbourg invented fashion,” she enthused.
