COME TOGETHER: The Dior Homme show drew an eclectic crowd including director Zoe Cassavetes, photographer Mario Testino and architect Peter Marino, who sported his arm in a black leather sling following a collision with a taxi.

 

Designer Karl Lagerfeld was being cryptic about his latest couture creations for Chanel, due to be unveiled on Tuesday. “Two words: neon baroque,” he teased.

 

French actress Sonia Rolland said she was busy fundraising for victims of the earthquake in Haiti, where she shot a movie last year with director Raoul Peck. “Moloch tropical,” due out in March, chronicles the final moments of a ruler in Haiti as a violent revolution erupts. “It really explains the situation in Haiti before the earthquake – basically, what’s been happening for the last 200 years,” said Rolland.

 

The former Miss France runs her own charity, Maïsha Africa, which helps childen in her native Rwanda. “Some people think you do it just to boost your image, but running an organization like mine is anything but a walk in the park,” she said.
