Chanel’s poster children turned out in force for Karl Lagerfeld’s couture show.

ALL MY CHILDREN: Chanel’s poster children turned out in force for Karl Lagerfeld’s couture show. Current and former brand ambassadors Inès de la Fressange, Diane Kruger, Vanessa Paradis, Anna Mouglalis, Baptiste Giabiconi and Gaspard Ulliel joined celebrity guests including Jerry Hall, Pedro Almodovar and Alexa Chung, who snapped pictures on her smartphone during the show. Kirsten Dunst, who has just completed filming Lars Von Trier’s “Melancholia,” appeared unscathed despite the director’s reputation for tormenting his female leads. “It went great!” she beamed.

Rocking a Chanel tuxedo jacket, Janelle Monae, who has a penchant for bowties and two-tone brogues, says her style is not about cross-dressing. “I don’t believe in men’s wear,” said the singer, who is gearing up to perform at the Grammy Awards next month, and working on a follow-up to her nominated debut album, “The ArchAndroid.”

 

Karen Elson raved about Monae’s performance at the Etam lingerie show the previous night, where she also sang.  “She’s incredible, she’s like a female Bobby Brown: She commanded the stage,” enthused Elson, who is writing songs for her next album. Giabiconi said he’s working up a debut album, titled “Trilogy,” for a May release.

 

Amira Casar said she got to don vintage gems for her role as Picasso muse Dora Maar in the upcoming made-for-television movie “Weeping Woman in Red Hat.” “It was wonderful. We had Schiaparelli stuff, we really went for it,” she said of the film, which will screen on France 2 on February 16th. Ana Girardot, meanwhile, will be donning Sixties minis for her role as the wife of late French pop icon Claude François in the biopic “Cloclo,” opposite Jérémy Renier. Elodie Bouchez plays an artist coasting through Manhattan in “The Imperialists Are Still Alive!” and confessed she knew little about the art world before filming began, though having bone fide painter Rita Ackermann as a co-star helped.

And de la Fressange may soon have other style books in the pipeline. Following the success of her tome, “Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Inès de la Fressange,” which has sold around 80,000 copies and will soon be translated into English, the style maven is mulling writing a follow-up book about her favorite addresses in the South of France.
