Chanel hosted two shows on Tuesday, with celebrity-studded front rows in each. Marianne Faithfull praised the flat shoes, despite the title of her forthcoming album, “Horses and High Heels,” due out in Europe in January.

 

“Harry Potter” star Clémence Poésy, dazzled by the walls pavéd in matte gold sequins, said she just wrapped a French movie in which she plays Joan of Arc, minus any heroic costumes. “It’s about her one year in prison,” she sighed. 

 

Inès de la Fressange said her publisher, Flammarion, was rushing another 50,000 copies of her style guide, “La Parisienne,” into print after the initial run sold out. “We’re in third position after Keith Richards and Harry Potter. It’s incredible,” she beamed. Vanessa Paradis has just wrapped “Café de Flore” and is preparing to tour again in January with her band. Forget about getting tickets though: Her concerts at the Folies Bergère in Paris are all sold out.

 

Joshua Jackson wrapped his arm around Diane Kruger as they reclined deep into the cushioned banquette. The German actress is gearing up for the release next year of “Unknown,” in which she plays a Bosnian illegal immigrant alongside Liam Neeson. In the meantime, the couple is gearing up to spend Christmas with her family. For Jackson, that means one thing: “Lots of pork!”
