A CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK: Jennifer Lopez arrived at the Chanel show in Paris flanked by her boyfriend, Casper Smart, and four-year-old daughter Emme, who was wearing a pink dress and white cardigan with Chanel accessories. “She has a little Chanel bag and a pin, like mama,” the “On the Floor” singer noted with a smile.
The little girl posed for photographers, but later appeared to grow restless, at one point burying her head in Lopez’s lap, as dozens of models circled giant replica wind turbines on the spectacular set erected in the Grand Palais.
Guests including Lou Doillon, Cécile Cassel, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Maïwenn, Inès de la Fressange, Caroline de Maigret and Tallulah Harlech took in the show, which featured a live performance by Portland-based band Chromatics.
French model-turned-actress Laetitia Casta said she was in the middle of promoting “Do Not Disturb,” French director Yvan Attal’s remake of the U.S. independent comedy “Humpday,” which comes out on Wednesday. After that, she’ll be seen playing a woman in a sadomasochistic relationship with a banker in “Tied.”
Known for her convention-challenging roles, Casta said she was currently sifting through scripts. “I want to choose projects that allow me to take risks, but that’s always been the case. I want things that shake me up, that push me outside my comfort zone, and that’s why I do this job,” she explained.
Poppy Delevingne is also looking to change tack. The British “It” girl is moving to New York this month before trying her luck in Hollywood next year. “I want to go out there in January because they’re doing pilot season,” she said, describing herself as a “Boardwalk Empire” fan. “I like all that kind of rough-and-ready stuff,” she mused.
French actress Ana Girardot, meanwhile, was pleased about her recent switch to the small screen. Her new series “Les Revenants” (“They Came Back” in English) will make its debut on pay television channel Canal Plus in November. “The cast is absolutely genius, and the photography is stunning. It has suspense, it has everything,” she said.
