QUEEN OF BLING: Milla Jovovich celebrated her new role as the face of Jacob & Co. with a cocktail at the Baselworld watch and jewelry fair, and founder Jacob “King of Bling” Arabov made sure she was dripping in diamonds. “Well, it’s not much,” she deadpanned. “This ring is $20 million. This bracelet is probably $10 million. Necklace is about, I don’t know, 6.5. The earrings are 10. No big deal.”

Jovovich said the six security guards assigned to protect her had even tried to bar her husband, director Paul W.S. Anderson, from the room. The pair, who has worked together on four “Resident Evil” movies, is about to make a 180-degree turn with the October release of “The Three Musketeers,” directed by Anderson and starring Jovovich as Milady de Winter. And the model-turned-actress has already thought of a tie-in. “The whole point of the story is stealing the queen’s diamonds, and who else would be better to put diamonds on a queen than Jacob?” she said with a smile.
