CELEBRITY CAVAL-CADES: "Do I have it on the wrong way?" Mischa Barton asked Saturday night at the Cannes Film Festival, fiddling with her vintage Roberto Cavalli beaded tunic. Not that the paparazzi would ever notice. They went wild as Barton stepped on to the yacht Satine for a photo op to promote "Decameron," the forthcoming film co-produced and costumed by Cavalli. By contrast, Barton's co-star — "Star Wars" hunk Hayden Christensen — couldn't even remember who designed his suit. "I just put on whatever they send me," he related. The two young stars are slated to return to Florence this week to resume filming the sexy comedy.

For the past two years, a jazz trio entertained the crowds — this year, it is being replaced by DJ Tony Okungbowa, who is the musical director on "The Ellen Degeneres Show." Will nominees like Marc Jacobs, Ralph Rucci and Vera Wang emulate the talk show host's quirky dancing routine on their way to the stage if they win?

"You should get a tan," quipped a jovial De Sole to an especially pale journalist on the main square of this chic port town. "Forget working."

Eleanore De Sole kept busy by playfully heckling Sergio Loro Piana and Luisa Loro Piana as the paparazzi closed in for a shot. "Ahhh, what a couple!," she yelled, gesticulating wildly behind a mass of photographers. The foursome then retreated to the shade of a cafe table umbrella and a quiet round of refreshments.
