BRINGING THEIR ‘A’ GAME: The screams of excited fans greeted the arrival of a guest outside the venue of the Dior Homme show in Paris on Saturday. Was it Ansel Elgort, the rising star of films like “Divergent” and “The Fault in Our Stars”? Or perhaps Scott Mescudi, aka Kid Cudi? The celebrity turned out to be Taiwanese actor and singer Vic Chou, looking dapper in a pin-striped Dior suit with a sprig of lily of the valley embroidered above the breast pocket. Speaking through an interpreter, the member of boy band F4 said it was his first visit to Paris, but he was used to similar fan reactions on his travels.
As temperatures rose inside the Tennis Club in the west of Paris, he was joined in the front row by guests including Karl Lagerfeld, Candice Swanepoel, Isabeli Fontana, Caroline de Maigret, Pierre Niney, Haider Ackermann and Dao Ming.
Miguel Ángel Muñoz was happy to talk about his upcoming film “What About Love,” in which he plays a daredevil documentary filmmaker who goes on an ill-fated European road trip with his American girlfriend. The film also stars Andy Garcia, Sharon Stone, Iain Glen and Marielle Jaffe, and is set for release in 2015.
The Spanish actor and singer, who will also be seen in horror film “ABCs of Death 2,” said Hollywood has been good to him. “They are really focused on Latin actors. Now I think is a really good opportunity for us to cross the border and go there for work,” he remarked.
Lambert Wilson, fresh off his stint as master of ceremonies at the Cannes Film Festival, was gearing up for his last two performances in “The King and I” at the Théâtre du Châtelet, which has earned him rave reviews.
“I’ve done a lot of musical comedies, as a matter of fact. I was trained in England,” he said. “For me, it’s a perfectly normal thing to sing and dance, so I was very excited to do this huge production that has never been put on in France.”
