Unfortunately, with life possibly imitating art, Deneuve was whisked off by a phalanx of paparazzi before she could reveal if she'd play a groupie or a leading lady.
Meanwhile, "CSI: Miami" star Eva La Rue said she flew into town to take in a few shows courtesy of the Hollywood writers' strike. "I have the time," she said, adding that she was filming her impression of Paris for a slot on "Extra." "It's me going around with a handheld camera," she said. "I met
Valentino yesterday and it was like seeing a legend."
BIRTHDAY GALORE: Boucheron, the jewelry house, celebrated its 150th anniversary Monday by treating its best (paying) clients and a handful of stars — Julianne Moore, Diane Kruger, Naomi Campbell and Michelle Yeoh — to a gala evening of art, jewelry and food.
After a private showing of the house's new million-dollar-plus collection of baubles against a backdrop of contemporary art — Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Maurizio Cattelan et al, culled from PPR owner François Pinault's collection — the moneyed band was whisked to the neighboring Petit Palais for dinner, where Emmanuelle Seigner belted out "Happy Birthday" in a breathy Monroe style. Americans Susan Casden, Kassidy Choi Schagrin, and Christine Suppes opted for Christian Lacroix couture, while Becca Cason Thrash wore Dior and Suzanne Sapperstein tried on Stéphane Rolland. Across the room, Danielle Steel held court with daughters Samantha and Vanessa Traina.
Moore, in gray Yves Saint Laurent accessorized with the obligatory Boucheron sparklers, is the house's mascot for the anniversary year. But bling was far from being the only thing on the actress' mind. "When I asked if anyone knew who won the Packers-Giants game, you could have heard a pin drop," she laughed. "Believe me, I won't be wearing any jewelry when I watch the Super Bowl. I'd tear it off in excitement."
