VALLI'S GIRL: “It’s scary,” pint-sized Natalie Portman said as a crowd of photographers surged toward her minutes before the start of Giambattista Valli’s show Thursday. Wearing a black dress from this season’s collection, the actress, who was accompanied by her stylist Kate Young, sang Valli’s praises. “I love his clothes. He’s a great new talent,” she said. Fellow front row guests included Lapo Elkann and his girlfriend, Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, who has a French movie in the pipeline. Italian actress Eva Ricco Gorna, meanwhile, said she just wrapped her first film, “Grande Grosso e Verdone.”
