TV GUIDE: Dior's fine jewelry designer Victoire de Castellane showed off her latest baubles against a backdrop of giant TV screens that projected a shopping channel spoof, starring herself and Dior president Sidney Toledano, cast as a price-slashing co-host. "It was far easier than filming my tiny role in 'Marie Antoinette,' as we just had to read from a prompter," said de Castellane. Highlights of the line include a pair of fruit-cluster detachable diamond earrings as well as a cactus ring featuring a globular purple cabochon tanzanite stone edged with rounded turquoise needles in Paraiba tourmaline. Also new is a range of faceted cocktail rings that resemble smaller versions of de Castellane's knuckle-dusters.

JUMP START: Romain Duris, Sofia Coppola and Audrey Tautou were among the A-listers at Chanel's storied Rue Cambon salons Friday night, to fete the launch of the Kirsten Dunst edition of Lula magazine. "The most fun was gambling around Saint Moritz in the Swiss Alps for a shoot with [stylist] Leith Clark," said Dunst, who has also just wrapped up directing her first short film, starring Winona Ryder. Meanwhile on the decks, Balenciaga muse, model-cum-actress Joana Preiss, disclosed she'll soon be embarking on an Anglo-Icelandic theater project with Gael García Bernal. The multitasker is also about to release her first mini album next week.

Earlier in the day, Rachel Bilson took in her first Paris runway show. "I guess Chanel isn't such a bad choice," she noted. Bilson just wrapped "Jumper," a film based on the novel by Steven Gould, and is guest starring in the NBC comedy "Chuck." "No other things planned yet — except for shopping. Now that's a project," she joked.

Meanwhile, Marianne Faithfull discussed her new book, "Memories, Dreams and Reflections," a biography of sorts that was just released in England and is scheduled to debut in the States in January. "Now I'm just waiting to see how people will react to it," she said. "Usually with me it's love it or hate it."

When your mother is Twiggy, and she just did a photo shoot with Antonio Banderas, the least you could expect is an introduction. "I missed out on that!" lamented Carly Witney, daughter of the Sixties icon, at the Stella McCartney party Thursday night. "He was a very special guest," Twiggy said of Banderas, who appears with her in Marks & Spencer's star-studded holiday campaign. Twiggy is heading Stateside next month for "America's Next Top Model." "Every 16-year-old girl in America knows who I am!" she deadpanned. Witney, meanwhile, is working as an intern for McCartney.
