Front Row at Dior Homme

Sharon Stone, Karl Lagerfeld and Huang Xiaoming attended the Paris show.

OF MYTHS AND MONSTERS: Sharon Stone set off a flurry of flashbulbs at the Dior Homme show Saturday. Accompanied by her toddler son Quinn, the “Basic Instinct” star wore one of the label’s men’s suits designed by Kris Van Assche. Stone, who is the face of Dior’s Capture skin care line, said she was also looking forward to seeing the first Dior couture collection by Raf Simons on Monday. “We’re really happy to welcome him into the Dior family,” she said.

Though he may be less familiar to Western audiences, Huang Xiaoming also attracted cameras. China’s number-one heartthrob will soon start filming on “Amazing,” a special effects-laden movie that is being produced in partnership with the NBA. “I’m very excited because Dwight Howard and Scottie Pippen are my sports heroes,” he said of the basketball stars, who will appear in the film.

Edgar Ramírez was in town for the French premiere of “An Open Heart,” which costars Juliette Binoche. The busy actor recently completed shooting on “Libertador,” a biopic of revolutionary hero Simón Bolívar. “Beyond the fact that I’m Venezuelan myself and Bolivar was Venezuelan, his legacy transcends my country and transcends South America,” he said. “Normally in South America, you either have the statesman or you have the strongman. Bolívar was both.”

Niels Schneider has also been tackling a mythological character — in his case, straight out of Homer’s “The Odyssey.” The actor plays Telemachus, the son of Odysseus and Penelope, in the film adaptation of the epic Greek poem. “We have taken a lot of liberties with the original text,” he said. “We decided to tell the side of the story that Homer left out.”

Sitting next to his father, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton chairman and chief executive officer Bernard Arnault, Alexandre Arnault said he has given up his budding career as a DJ to focus on his academic work. The 22-year-old, who is preparing to study engineering, said he hoped to eventually join the family firm, though he had no specific brand in mind. “They’re all amazing, so I’ll take whichever will have me,” he laughed.
