COOL AND THE GANG: “I’m here for my friend Papa Ricky,” Ciara squealed at the Givenchy show Sunday night. “You know him as Riccardo,” she said of her friend, the brand’s designer Riccardo Tisci.
The singer is putting the finishing touches on her new album, “One Woman Army,” the first single from which comes out today. After that she’ll be off on tour. “I’m going to be going for a long run, and I can’t wait because I haven’t toured in so long. The road is the most fun to me,” she said.
Sky Ferreira said she was heading back to the U.S. later this week to start her own concert schedule. “I’m mixing my record and releasing it late spring,” she said.
Jessica Chastain said she would soon start filming Liv Ullmann’s adaptation of the Strindberg play “Miss Julie” in Northern Ireland opposite Colin Farrell. “I was looking at the script today and I’ve got so much work to do,” she said.
Nicole Richie said she’ll appear on the French news and talk show “Le Grand Journal” before heading back to New York for season two of “Fashion Star,” while Kim Kardashian and Kanye West also took in the show.
As did Amanda Seyfried, who is rumored to be the upcoming face of a Givenchy fragrance. Earlier in the day at the Chloé show, French actress Victoria Olloqui revealed the pair were about to shoot a campaign together.
“Cédric Klapisch is the director,” specified Olloqui, saying she was looking forward to working with Seyfried as well, who she thinks “looks like a lot of fun.”
Olloqui is currently on stage in Paris in another all-girl’s affair, of sorts. “Une nuit au poste” (“A Night in Detention,” in English) is a comedy with two characters; one girl is a serial delinquent and the other “a rich girl, who’s just bored with life. It’s like the two worlds [collide], you know?” And so which one is Olloqui? “I’m the bad girl,” she smiled.
Zhang Yuqi wondered why the press keeps calling her “Kitty.” “I don’t know where they got it from —maybe from Hello Kitty? But that’s not for me,” said the Chinese actress, wearing a pastel Chloé ensemble.
