MODEL AMBASSADOR: "It's great to see the Légion d'honneur given to a model," said Isabella Rossellini last Wednesday night as Roger Vivier ambassador Inès de la Fressange was pinned at the accessories firm's Paris boutique. "In France where fashion is so important, up till now it's only been designers. Now they're recognizing people that are real ambassadors of fashion."
Rossellini has just presented "Green Porno," a series of short films about insects' sex lives at the Centre Pompidou's Pocket Films Festival and her upcoming films include "Two Lovers," a drama with Gwyneth Paltrow and Joaquin Phoenix and "The Accidental Husband," a comedy starring Uma Thurman.
Fanny Ardant, meanwhile, disclosed she'll go behind the camera come fall, directing her first film, "Cendres and Sang" (Ashes and Blood) in Romania with a cast of young unknowns. Guests also included Lee Radziwill, Farida Khelfa, Vanessa Bruno, Tod's chairman and chief executive officer Diego Della Valle and Audrey Marnay, plus the de la Fressange clan, including stepdaughter Clotilde De Kersauson who was sporting something shiny on her finger, a prototype from the jewelry and accessories collection she's creating with actress Josephine de la Baume for fall. "There'll be lots of antique-style chains, rings and gloves," De Kersauson said, "things you might find in the bottom of a drawer at your grandma's house."
