Front Row at Dior

Robert De Niro, Diane Von Furstenberg and a bevy of French actresses sat front row.

ACTING UP: There was a bounty of French actresses at Friday’s Dior show, including Mélanie Laurent, Alice Taglioni, Clotilde Courau and Ludivine Sagnier.

Marina Foïs just wrapped up a film in which she plays an assistant to the editor in chief of French Elle, portrayed by Valérie Lemercier. Would she ever want to work in fashion? “Only if I could be in the design department,” she declared.

Next week, Virginie Ledoyen starts filming a French feature by Emmanuel Mouret, a drama about a love triangle. “Pretty girly,” is how Ledoyen described her character’s fashion leanings.

Model Eva Herzigova keeps plunging further into acting. Her turn as the wife of a politico in “Cha Cha Cha,” an Italian film, is slated to premiere at the Rome Film Festival in November.

Diane von Furstenberg, Cindy Sherman and Bernadette Chirac were among other notable women lining the front rows.

Several famous men at the show shunned questions, including filmmaker Luc Besson and Kanye West, who declined to address questions about the future of the fledgling fashion line he paraded in Paris the last two seasons.

After the show, Robert De Niro, making his first Paris Fashion Week appearance this season, was impressed by Raf Simons’ first ready-to-wear effort for Dior, even if he kept his opinion quite succinct. “The work that goes into the making of the dresses,” he said, when asked what he liked about the collection after the show. It wasn’t the only thing that struck a nerve with the actor. “The music helps,” he said.
