TAKING THE PLUNGE: Jimmy Jean-Louis, star of NBC’s “Heroes,” took in Christian Lacroix’s couture show on Tuesday and said he’s just started filming “Coursier” a French movie with EuropaCorp, Luc Besson’s company, in Paris this week. French actress Marie-Anne Chazel said she’s looking forward to the costumes for her role as an actress in the period made-for-TV movie “Les Mechantes” (Mean Girls). “It’s set in Napoleonic times, so the outfits will be very regal, with plunging dresses, lots of muslin,” she enthused.

Catherine Deneuve chirped along to a remixed version of Wham’s “Careless Whisper” during the show, and later said her forthcoming film “The Girl from the Subway” is out soon. Socialite Suzanne Saperstein has been a front-row fixture at couture, with her 18-year-old daughter, Stephanie, who was gleaning information from designers for her own collection, called Chiave. “I am regrouping and my mom and her friends are really helping. I had dinner with Stéphane Rolland, who was great with advice,” she said. While still in high school, Stephanie said she’s hoping to launch a few choice looks in spring, with 50 percent of profits destined for charity. “I am also trying to raise the awareness of drunk driving,” she said.
