REEL ADVENTURES: Ushers dressed as old-time French policemen greeted guests at the Kenzo show, including actor Andy Gillet, star of Kenzo Power perfume ads, and starlet Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre.

 

The actress said she was gearing up for the April release of her latest flick, directed by Danièle Thompson and based on the adventures of comic book heroine Adèle Blanc-Sec.

 

The film will mark the acting debut of Julien Doré, the 2007 winner of “Nouvelle Star,” France’s equivalent to “American Idol,” Clermont-Tonnerre noted.

 

Gillet has just completed shooting “The Destiny of Rome,” a mini-series for Franco-German TV channel Arte in which he plays Emperor Augustus.

 

For the show’s finale, guests poured out on the Place des Victoires, which had been transformed into a film set inspired by Jacques Tati’s 1971 movie “Traffic” – complete with 30 vintage Citroën DS cars.

 

As Italian designer Antonio Marras shouted directions, models paraded under a light drizzle before being whisked away in a retro bus.
