KATE EXPECTATIONS: A jovial Kate Moss found the mayhem that greeted her arrival at Chanel’s show Tuesday hilarious. The supermodel, seated between her boyfriend, The Kills frontman Jamie Hince, and Mario Testino, wiped away tears of laughter as she pointed at the crush of photographers. Moss said she’ll help curate the upcoming exhibition about her 15-year career at Paris’ Musee des Arts Decoratifs in November. The supermodel, who has been immortalized in paint by Lucian Freud and in gold by Marc Quinn, said there’s another artist she would pose for. “Jeff Koons” she cooed.
“It’s chaos,” marveled Freida Pinto, who says she dreamed of attending a Chanel show. “I didn’t expect to be sitting on the front row,” she gushed, adding that the speculation she has a contract with Estee Lauder, is but “a lovely rumor.”
Olga Kurylenko took the mania in laidback Bond girl fashion. “It’s always like this, I’m used to it,” she shrugged.
Away from the flashbulbs, a cool Gaspard Ulliel said he’s just wrapped up playing a guardian angel who changes the fate of a doomed 19th century peasant winemaker in Burgundy in “Vintner’s Luck.” “I had to wear these huge, heavy wings that were activated by huge compressed air systems,” said Ulliel, spoiling the illusion. His favorite vintage is Château Latour 1992.
Meanwhile, Anna Mouglalis said she’ll be taking up her first directorial effort this weekend, a short film for Canal +’s “X Women” series. Her partner, Samuel Benchetrit, will play the male lead opposite Marta Corton Vinals. “The theme is female desire and sexuality and it’s supposed to be pornography, but I don’t want to do that so I’ll be exploring verbal pornography,” said Mouglalis.
The French contingent included Cecile Cassel, Virginie Ledoyen, Lea Seydoux and French actor Louis Garrel, who declared he’s had enough of Parisian life and has decided to move to Brooklyn. “Look at the faces of the French people here, it’s sad. Americans are much more upbeat,” said Garrel, who’s shortly starting his second directorial movie, featuring Lea Seydoux. The actress said she was off to London after the show for Ridley Scott’s movie “Nottingham.”
