LICENSE TO THRILL: It was an action-packed front row at Louis Vuitton, which included new James Bond girl Gemma Arterton, who stars as Agent Fields opposite Daniel Craig in the upcoming "Quantum of Solace." "I have to remember this moment for the rest of my life," purred the actress, whose next film will be "Tess of the D'Urbervilles." "I get to wear hair extensions and transform myself into a real English rose," added Arterton, who also has been tapped to be the face of Avon's upcoming Bond Girl fragrance. Meanwhile, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal said she was looking forward to filming "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee" after the big-budget superhero experience of the upcoming Batman film, "The Dark Knight." "It's an absolutely independent movie," she said of "Pippa Lee," in which she appears with Julianne Moore and Winona Ryder. Speaking of independents, director Wes Anderson said that, up his sleeve, he had a new animated feature, to be called "Fantastic Mr. Fox." Rounding out the glitterati were designer Yohji Yamamoto, Taiwanese actress Janine Chang and French actress Melanie Laurent, who hinted that she has a secret fashion project brewing.

BEING ANNA: No, Anna Wintour wasn't at Lanvin. The Vogue chief was already on her way home. But French TV presenter Mademoiselle Agnès tricked a lot of people — including security — by imitating Wintour — bangs and sunglasses to a T — at the show. "Getting through security was mighty speedy," she quipped, explaining that she dressed like Wintour for a joke for her show.

NIGHT OWLS: "'Ain't Nobody' by Chaka Khan: It's the best to get people dancing," hollered a beaming Stefano Pilati, one of several DJs, including Chloë Sevigny and Ludivine Sagnier, who hit the decks for a party held by Colette and Self Service magazine at Le Lup Saturday night. Anja Rubik, who stormed the dance floor with Jacquetta Wheeler, handed out hangover cures. "Actually, a glass of wine is the best," she offered.

CAR AND DRIVER: Belgian designer Martin Margiela loves to cover anything and everything in boiled cotton — from coat hangers to the furniture in his store. On Saturday night at a Parisian garage, he unveiled a trompe l'oeil car cover, one of a series of tarps by designers such as Lutz, Richard James and Ksubi, commissioned by Intersection magazine.
