FRENCH SONG: Marie de Villepin, the daughter of former French prime minister Dominique de Villepin, was at the Dream Hotel’s Electric Room in New York Wednesday night trying on a new role. De Villepin is already a model and an actress — she’ll play muse Betty Catroux in Jalil Lespert’s upcoming film “Yves Saint Laurent,” one of two dueling projects about the designer.

In the middle of the snug Chelsea club, she was performing a moody acoustic set with her newly formed band, Pinkmist. Vs. magazine and G-Star were toasting the premiere of a new short film directed by actress Rie Rasmussen that de Villepin appears in and also scored. As De Villepin, balancing herself on a stool, sang, the short played on a projector screen behind her while a crowd that included Russell Simmons, David Blaine and Alicia Rountree looked on.
