STAR CROSSED: Ludivine Sagnier couldn't hide her irritation as she was mistaken for fellow French actresses, first Mélanie Laurent then Clémence Poésy, on her way in to Chloé's show Saturday. "I'm not Mélanie, I'm not Clémence either," she trilled before shouting, "Look! There's a model over there!" in a bid to distract photographers away from herself and Julie Depardieu. Laurent (or was that Ludivine Sagnier?) said she has just finished the filming of "Shoe At Your Foot," a romantic comedy about a transatlantic love affair between an American man and a French woman. "It's possible in the movies," joked Laurent, who was smooched by her front row sidekick, actress Vahina Gioconte. "But in real life I couldn't tell you — I'm with a French guy."
Depardieu and Courtney Love were also making friends, with Depardieu tapping the singer's phone number into her pink cell within minutes of Love's arrival. There was no mistaking the rocker, who swept in wearing shades plus a beige dress by little-known Japanese designer Suzuki Takayuki. "My driver went out in Japan and found this guy. It's only his second collection," said Love.
Meanwhile, model Anja Rubik disclosed she's been dabbling in a bit of art in her downtime. "I like to copy works by Van Gogh," said Rubik, adding that she was scooting back to New York after the shows to shoot the Gap, H&M and Oscar de la Renta campaigns.
STYLE MEDLEY: NBC's new big boss, Ben Silverman, crashed Paris Fashion Week with a party Saturday night where Hollywood hounds, music maestros, film aficionados and European royalty shared one common interest: rugby. "I can't believe they won," said Kristin Scott Thomas of France's defeat of the much-favored New Zealand All Blacks. Also watching were Prince Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein, Christopher Heinz and his wife, Sasha Heinz, Loulou de la Falaise and Kanye West, who offered up a "This is dope," as cars headed toward the Champs-Elysées to celebrate the victory.
