Across town, Audrey Marnay, Joana Preiss, Marie-Josée Croze and Diane Kruger were among a flock of diamond-clad night owls who joined Karl Lagerfeld at the Chanel jewelry boutique on Place Vendôme to celebrate Mario Sorrenti's portraits for French Vogue's latest calendar. One had to wonder: Did Kruger's borrowed comet necklace give her ideas for her holiday gift wish list? "That's rather a loaded question," said Kruger's other half, Joshua Jackson. In fact, Kruger revealed she's looking forward to a set of gray Egyptian-cotton bed sheets from her mother. "It's for my new apartment in the 7th arrondissement," she said. Smoky-eyed Chanel muse Anna Mouglalis said she'll be sporting a set of fangs for her next movie role: a vampire. "The script is a love story that I wrote while I was expecting my child," said Mouglalis, who cast her real-life partner Samuel Benchetrit, as the male lead.
SUPER SET: The next Costume Institute gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is likely to have a set worthy of the "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy" exhibit it kicks off. For the May 5 benefit, the Costume Institute tapped production designer Nathan Crowley, who made his mark creating the set for "Bram Stoker's Dracula," and was a production designer on such movies as Chris Nolan's "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Night." Crowley, who will also be a creative consultant on the exhibit, will be responsible for the design of the gala with Raul Avila. Giorgio Armani will serve as the night's honorary chair, with cochairs George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour.
