FULL CIRCLE: Chinese actresses Chen Ran and Kitty Zhang were among front-row guests at Valentino. Ran, in a floor-length lace Valentino dress, is filming a new movie with director Chen Kaige, most famous in the West for his 1993 film “Farewell My Concubine.” It will be released in August.

Nicky Hilton was promoting her Art Deco-inspired jewelry line Chelsea, while model-turned-photographer and blogger Hanneli Mustaparta said she is boosting the social media presence of Calvin Klein, whose blog she has just begun writing on Tumblr. “It’s like coming full circle, because I used to model for them,” she said.
