Hilary Swank may be a high flyer in Hollywood, but the actress is yet to earn her wings. “I don’t know how to fly, but I hope to learn very shortly,” said a sinewy Swank, who was taking time out from filming “Amelia Earhart” to attend Giorgio Armani’s Prive couture show Monday night. “But I can sky dive,” she said. Ellen Pompeo of “Grey’s Anatomy” was feeling more grounded, to say the least. “I’m a well-paid slave, tied down to ABC,” said Pompeo, who plans to tone down her self-described “daredevil” image, due to the writers’ strike, on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild this Sunday. The actress, who spent Tuesday going for fittings in Paris, said the current climate calls for “less bling.” Her rebellious streak may yet win through, though. “Watch me show up in McQueen – with a headdress,” she deadpanned.

Sophia Loren said she was working on her musical début themed around Federico Fellini. “I’m a professional, and all professionals can sing,” she explained. Attending her first couture show, fast-rising British actress Rebecca Hall said she just wrapped up Woody Allen’s “Vicki Cristina Barcelona” opposite Scarlett Johansson and Ron Howard’s “Frost/Nixon.”

“That’s good for fashion,” she said of the latter film. “It’s set in the Seventies and so I got to wear a lot of Halston replicas. I loved it.”

WOOED BY FASHION: Among new faces in couture’s front row this season is Jennifer Woo, president of Hong Kong-based fashion retailer Lane Crawford, who just might join the ranks of high-fashion clients soon. “Maybe. Let’s see,” she demurred. Woo and Lane Crawford’s fashion director Sarah Rutson are also here to take in the trends at couture. “It’s the essence, the top, the pinnacle of fashion and we need to make sure that’s kept alive,” said Woo, whose adventures at couture are also being documented for a feature in Vogue.

TOMB RAIDERS: A decor worthy of a “Harry Potter” film—including old tomes, skulls, stuffed owls and hunks of mineral—awaited guests at Louis Vuitton’s bash Monday night for a new fine jewelry collection by Pharrell Williams and Camille Miceli. Holding court at a private mansion on Avenue Foch, Williams welcomed the likes of Sofia Coppola, Natalia Vodianova, Audrey Marnay and Dita Von Teese. Coppola confirmed she’ll soon be back in action, currently working on a script. Elsewhere, French thespians Joanna Preiss, Elodie Bouchez and Romain Duris huddled on an old-fashioned couch discussing their precious heirlooms. “It’s from the Twenties and belonged to the grandmother of my best friend,” said Preiss of a gold chain bracelet. The actress-cum-model said she’d just shot the American Retro campaign with Terry Richardson. Freckle-faced Marnay, who stars in Cedric Klapisch’s new film, “Paris,” said she is also keeping a foot in modeling, having just shot a campaign for the French jewelry brand Fred, in which she stars with rising French indie actor Melvil Poupaud.
