COCO NUT: Audrey Tautou is truly dedicated to getting ready for her latest role as a fashion designer, and it seems any show will help. "I'm in preparation to play Coco Chanel," Tautou said at Celine Thursday. The French actress has the leading role in an upcoming Anne Fontaine-directed biopic about the iconic designer. Meanwhile, the dictum that fashion and politics don't mix definitely has Emmanuelle Seigner's vote. The actress shrugged "no comment" when asked about French President Nicolas Sarkozy by one journalist. "I don't think it's my role to talk about politics," Seigner said afterward. "There's already enough to do as an artist." Her upcoming projects include "Le Code a Changé," directed by Danièle Thompson, plus a trip to Asia in May to promote the Tai Chi clothing line she designed with Celine. Pop diva and actress Sammy Cheng said she hopes to take a turn modeling — as part of an exhibition Celine is hosting in Hong Kong's Landmark center this fall. The star has just wrapped action movie "Detective Women" in Hong Kong. Up-and-coming actress Léa Seydoux turned the table on photographers by snapping pictures of them on her cell. Seydoux has just finished playing a princess in a TV film about "La Princesse de Clèves" and next will play a girl who has the power to heal.

"Thank god you took off your white shirt," Julianne Moore said to her husband, filmmaker Bart Freundlich, as they took their seats at the YSL show Thursday night. That's because the couple was sandwiched between a row of seated ushers in creamy white shirts. Moore said she was looking forward to the release of her next movie, "Savage Grace." "The fashion is phenomenal: Wonderful styles from the Forties to the Fifties." Moore said she was currently working on a plethora of productions, including "Blindness" based on the novel by José Saramago. She's also just completed an interior decorating job at the apartment of her stylist, Leslie Fremar, who sat behind the actress at the show. The project will be on the cover of Domino Magazine in May. "She's my client and I'm her client," said Moore, who flew in just for the show. "We have to be back by Sunday to see my son's basketball game."
