WORKING MOM: Lolita Chammah, who’s the face of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, is gearing up to play daughter to her real-life mother, Isabelle Huppert, in Marc Fitoussi’s “Copacabana,” which starts shooting next week. Huppert plays a rock ’n’ roll, unemployed woman who doesn’t have much of a life and thus meddles in her more sensible daughter’s choice of a husband.

Has that ever happened in real life?

“No, absolutely not,” Chammah said at the Chloé show Wednesday.

Fellow actress Marie-Josée Croze said she’s fully embracing this season’s Eighties trend, shooting two films set in that decade. “[The Eighties] are my best memories,” Croze said. “I was really into The Cure so I wore black suits and really red lipstick with my hair in my face.”

Chloé founder Gaby Aghion said she hasn’t missed a show since launching the house in the Fifties. “I always feel the same emotion,” she said.

Meanwhile, it was the first ever fashion show for 21-year-old French actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey, who has just finished shooting “La Première étoile” (“The First Star”). “My mother worked as a Chanel saleswoman for 10 years so I like to think I have an eye,” she said.

One of the three faces of Chloé’s fragrance, Anja Rubik, surprised everyone by turning up on the front row instead of in the show. “I gave them a choice, but they think me being here makes better p.r.,” she related.

Later, a tanned Patti Hansen, who owns a Parisian pied-à-terre with husband Keith Richards, took in the Hermès show. “I’m just relaxing waiting for the next tour, hopefully next year,” said Hansen, referring to the Rolling Stones’ world tour. “We’ll start working on it soon.”
