John Galliano heeded the call of the wild for Christian Dior on Monday, unveiling his “tribal chic” look for next summer which partnered tame silk chiffon with python and sharkskin.

In a tent packed to the gunnels with 1,500 press and buyers, he sent out a collection heaving with animal pelts and reptile skins cut up into jackets and coats, some ‘au naturel’ in black, camel and grey, but others dyed startling shades of orange and acidulic green.

Leather jackets looked as if they were battle-scarred like Zulu warriors.

Even the micro-mini silk skirts underneath the jackets, sunray pleated and often sheer, needed the legs of a giraffe to carry them off with conviction.

Galliano took his bow at the end in a sober black-trousers-and-waistcoat ensemble, to the resounding applause of a host of celebrity guests, including the ex-wife of Marilyn Manson, burlesque artist Dita Von Teese, the singers Lily Allen and Katy Perry, and actresses Eva Green, Milla Jovovich, Zoe Saldana (our dear mata’s fansite!), Marion Cotillard, Emma Watson and Elsa Zylberstein.

“I love the madness,” shouted Eva Green as she whisked into the Dior show Monday in a gray suit, looking every inch the schoolteacher she plays in her latest movie “Cracks.”

“It’s quite a dangerous story, there’s a lot of taboos, I play a swimming team teacher who seduces a student,” she said. She’s hoping the film, directed by Jordan Scott and set in the Thirties, will make the final selection for Cannes.

Lily Allen, who sat painting her nails with silver varnish from the gift set on her seat, said she’d arrived in Paris this weekend to record some tracks with Gonzalez.

Oscar winner Marion Cotillard of “La Vie en Rose” said she’ll be singing again in “Nine,” a new musical comedy set in the Sixties starring Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz that starts filming in October.

Accompanying her was film mogul Harvey Weinstein, who said he’s “in town to scout for a new Quentin Tarantino movie.”

Nearby, Barbara Bush, daughter of the U.S. President, noted she was in town visiting family.

Zoe Saldana, meanwhile, has just wrapped “Avatar” alongside Sigourney Weaver and the remake of “Star Trek,” alongside Winona Ryder. Saldana said her outfits, by costume designer Michael Kaplan, were far from geeky. “I wore very short, short, short dresses, it was petrifying,” she said.

U.S. pop singer Katy Perry is on a whirlwind tour to promote her first single, and is gearing up to release her second.

Emma Watson, or Harry Potter’s Hermione, could have used some magic to clear a throng of photographers and screaming teens who surged ahead of her coming out of the show.

Hobbling towards Place de la Concorde afterwards, a monochrome Roisin Murphy, who had road-tested one of Gareth Pugh’s articulated, armor-like frocks for the occasion, confessed she’d had a difficult time sitting at the show. “It’s not very comfortable,” she said.

Last but not least, Eva and her boyfriend, actor Marton Csokas, are still going steady and strong. They were spotted strolling in Paris yesterday dressed in black. I won’t be posting any photos here, but I thought you’d be happy to have some news of our discreet couple. Marton didn’t attend the Dior show though.

PS: And Tom can relax because Angharad is right behind Eva in the group picture. She’s wearing a blue dress. ;)

Today I’ve scanned an old issue of Elle Belgium (okay, not that old, it’s from September 2007 so it’s only 1 year old) for our viewing pleasure. The photo used inside the magazine was used in Elle France (thanks Kazou) and Elle Russia (thanks Mirik) last year was well. But the cover is brand new and I must say that I love it to bits!!! :)

Unfortunately, this is the Dutch speaking version of Elle Belgium. And I don’t speak Dutch. So, do we have any candidates for a translation? ;)

Oh, and, by the way, the BAFTAs 2008 coloured photo had already appeared in Night and Day last February (thanks Lorna).

It’s a claim that’s horrified the Sisterhood. But here one female author dares to argue that it’s true…

VESPER LYND Played by Eva Green in Casino Royale, she was Bond’s banker with a secret.
Feminist credentials: Vesper was Fleming’s first Bond girl, and one of his best. She’s a beautiful British agent who has been sent to help Bond – much to his chagrin – in his mission to confound the villainous Le Chiffre. After falling for her, he discovers that she’s been spying for the enemy. Rather than betray him, Vesper kills herself.
Feminist rating: 6/10. It takes a certain guts to betray Bond.
Most likely to say: ‘I can advance you ten million francs.’
Least likely to say: ‘You don’t mind that I betrayed you do you, James?’

Read more about the book and see what they have to say about other Bond girls at the Mail Online website.

Eva’s black dress at this year’s BAFTAs was one of the most talked about themes here this past week, especially because she chose to wear a white version of it in Moscow and Madrid. So to keep up with the BAFTAs theme, I’ve uploaded a photoshoot taken this year at the prestigius awards ceremony.

James David Louis is a hair stylist who lives in Dubai.

I have worked on all kinds of famous people – Michael Schumacher and his brother Ralf, Carolina Herrera, Mariah Carey. Kofi Annan is a gentleman, very quiet when I did his hair, he is very polite, a very nice person. I have done the hair of Marlene Jobert and her daughter Eva Green. Eva is a natural blonde but I first made her a brunette, the colour she was for Casino Royale.

Eva attended the Vanity Fair Party in Seville, Spain, last night. Some of Europe’s finest were out in Seville last night to celebrate the launch of Vanity Fair’s Spanish edition. Monica Cruz was there to represent the host country, while Brit Orlando Bloom mingled with Eva Green and Olivier Martinez, who are both French. Salma Hayek was the lone North American, looking like a hot mama in her black silk gown. Spain’s hottest actor, Javier Bardem, was off at the San Sebastian Film Festival, but it looks like the international crowd had some fun nonetheless.

Thanks to Astrea for the heads-up. :)

Seems like white is the new black! :P

Sophie Harley’s stunning contemporary take on an ancient style Algerian Love Knot necklace claims a starring role in the forthcoming James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, to be premiered 31st October and on-screens from November 08.

Sophie Harley, London based celebrity designer, was approached by the film production team to produce this important piece for the sequel to Casino Royale.

The intricate necklace combines Sophie’s strongest inspirations to create a piece of jewellery that is both ancient and contemporary in style. Incorporating ancient symbols, philosophy and iconography, the piece is as intriguing as the plot and has captured the eyes, minds and hearts of a worldwide audience.

Following the approach from the Casino Royale Bond team, the Algerian Love Knot was born. The piece is seen on leading lady, Vesper Lynd (Eva Green), and will be featured in the forthcoming new movie as central to one of the underlying plot lines.

To celebrate the launch of the new film, Sophie has produced a GBP15,000 solid 18ct gold and diamond encrusted version of the Algerian Love Knot necklace, alongside the original version of the love knot seen in the film, available at a retail price of GBP1,940 (sterling).

The Algerian Love Knot necklace is a beautiful and intricate work of art combining ancient goldsmithing techniques with bold contemporary design. The love knot is also an ancient symbol of enduring and eternal love.

Each piece is hand crafted in Sophie’s London studios, supply is limited and available to order direct from Sophie Harley Design on +44(0)207-430-2070 or via website: http://www.sophieharley.com.
