Fashion Scoops: Hats Off... Latin Lovers.. Harry's Hits Mayfair...

Stephen Jones is to play a role in the forthcoming "Coco Before Chanel" film, starring Audrey Tautou ¿ making its hats, of course.

HATS OFF: Stephen Jones is to play a role in the forthcoming "Coco Before Chanel" film, starring Audrey Tautou — making its hats, of course. "She will make a wonderful Chanel, she is equally as petite. We have had to adjust everything. We put a little flower on her head and it looked like a cushion," said Jones at Giuseppe Zanotti's couture bash Tuesday night. The milliner also disclosed that he's been approached for a possible film about hat-mad Nico of the Velvet Underground.

Delfina Delettrez was celebrating the fact that Les Arts Décoratifs has requested four of her pieces for its contemporary jewelry room. "It's incredibly exciting," gushed the fledgling jewelry designer, who had donned a floral YSL dress from the Seventies that once belonged to her mother, Silvia Venturini Fendi. Along the way, Sylvia Toledano, who's married to Ralph Toledano's cousin, Alain, was showcasing a bag from her nascent eponymous line of minaudières. "There's one with a camellia, one with a peace and love symbol; it's kind of spiritual," she said.

Eva Mendes, who'd snuck off to a dark corner, said she's looking forward to her next movie "Bad Lieutenant" opposite Nicolas Cage, which starts shooting next week. "I play a prostitute who also happens to be a junkie — so it's a comedy," she joked, adding that she'd only attended one couture show. "Dior is the only show worth going to, I'm very loyal," she declared. Sporting a new grungy hairdo, budding thespian Lou Doillon said she'll be heading to New York in September for a four-day Franco-American theater festival. "I'll be performing a Beckett monologue," she said.

LATIN LOVERS: Jennifer Lopez touched down in Milan last week with hubby Marc Anthony and baby twins Emme and Max, ahead of Latin crooner Anthony's Italian debut Tuesday night at Latin American culture festival Latinoamericando. After a spot of shopping — for the babies naturally — Lopez and family had lunch with Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana at the designers' atelier, before shimmying over to the Palazzo Marino town hall, where Anthony picked up a special award for services to music. "We wanted to honor him for his unquestionable artistic value and also thank him for having chosen Milan for his first-ever concert in Italy," councilor Giovanni Terzi said of Anthony. Milan's annual Latinoamericando festival displays Latin American music, art, literature, crafts and folklore. Lopez and Anthony have been asked to open next year's edition of the event at the San Siro stadium.
