POLICE SQUAD: Maybe it was because he had just stepped out of a stadium, where he jammed for nearly 80,000 fans Saturday night in Paris, that Sting (the rocker-cum rugger) had sports on his mind. "I'm for Ireland," he said, during his after party at the VIP nightclub on the Champs-Elysées, referring to the Rugby World Cup match Sunday between Ireland and Argentina. "I used to live there." At the soiree, the good sport and his wife, Trudie Styler, posed for snapshots with fans, as did the other members of The Police — Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland.

HEART HELD: While some people wear their hearts on their sleeves, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac prefers to wear it on his shoulder. The iconic French designer has teamed up with Canon to design a limited edition of white evening handbags with a red heart embroidery, entire proceeds of which will be donated to the Red Cross. "I drew a heart because it is the universal symbol of sharing and generosity," said Castelbajac, Thursday night at the Galerie W in Paris, where an exhibit of his photographs and dresses imprinted with his snapshots are on display until Oct. 14. The handbags, which retail for 100 euros, or $138 at current exchange, are available at the Galerie W, in the Jean-Charles de Castelbajac store and at the Galeries Lafayette.
