LONG LIVE THE QUEEN: Sofia Coppola and her cast and crew, filming a movie about Marie Antoinette in and around Paris, moved to a new location Saturday night: the fashion hangout Dave. But it wasn’t to film any scenes. Instead, Coppola threw a party for star Kirsten Dunst in honor of her 23rd birthday. Toasts were made to Dunst as she chomped on her spareribs. As for dessert, Dave let them eat cake.
COCO LOCO: The Chanel exhibition at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art has translated into a torrent of exceptional press in France. For example, Stiletto magazine is publishing a special all-Chanel issue, hitting newsstands today, as it is May 5 (five is famously a lucky number for the house). Published in seven languages, it contains fashion shoots by Karl Lagerfeld in New York and Paris, interviews with Chanel executives and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of lipstick. To celebrate the issue, models dressed in Chanel visors and messenger bags will distribute the magazine on the street in New York and Los Angeles today.
Meanwhile, Europe’s Arte channel is airing a five-part series documenting the creation of Lagerfeld’s couture collection last July. Shot by Paris journalist Loic Prigent, it charts the process from inception to runway.

There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
