FASHION ICONS: Guests walking into the party Wednesday night celebrating the opening of Tommy Hilfiger's new store on the Champs-Elysées in Paris were greeted by portraits of two of the designer’s fashion icons, James Dean and Grace Kelly. But the celebrities present had some quirky style heroes of their own. In the case of French actress Lou Doillon: Edie Bouvier Beale, one of the subjects of the cult documentary “Grey Gardens.” “The documentary proves that clothes matter, even to a woman who never leaves the house,” she said. “This idea that putting a skirt on your head with a brooch will make you feel better — that’s what being a fashion icon is about.”

Elisa Sednaoui has been seeing plenty of a more contemporary fashion icon, Karl Lagerfeld. Having shot Chanel’s fall eyewear campaign, she will accompany the designer to Moscow later this month for the launch of the Pirelli calendar, which he lensed and she features in. Sednaoui said her inspirations were her mother and actress Tilda Swinton, for her androgynous style. “Somehow, you can make the relationship with Tommy, too, because his clothing could have this casual masculine-feminine side to it that I like,” she noted, saying Hilfiger’s boyfriend sweaters were particularly appealing.

Emmanuelle Béart revealed she has recently wrapped three movies, including “Bye Bye Blondie,” helmed by controversial author and filmmaker Virginie Despentes. But when it comes to fashion, she refuses to take direction. “I don’t have any fashion icons. I follow my desire, my evolution as a woman, my maturity, my transformation,” the 47-year-old said. Later, Hilfiger headed to the Left Bank, where he hosted a dinner at Lapérouse sandwiched between his rocker buddy Lenny Kravitz and French actress Isabelle Huppert.
