"This is the glamorous part of the gig," said Selma Blair, a Tribeca Film Festival juror, at Chanel's annual Odeon dinner party last night. "They've really kept me busy this week." Of course, as part-time jobs go, there are worse things than looking at movies all day, and the same goes for Leigh Lezark's latest assignment. The MisShape was just back from Saint-Tropez, where she worked with Karl Lagerfeld on a secret project. Well, not so secret: It's a film that will debut at Chanel's resort show in two weeks. Lezark's reward? In addition to the clothes on her back, all the pommes frites she could eat. "How did I end up with three orders of French fries?" she asked. The real question is how she stays sample size eating all those fried potatoes.

Elsewhere, Terry Richardson and Olivier Zahm occupied themselves by snapping the ladies' footwear, and Julian Schnabel, with son Vito in tow, signed copies of his book, one of the art tomes given away as gifts to every guest. In the middle of it all, at a table with Angela Lindvall and a top-hatted Yoko Ono, was festival co-founder Robert De Niro. Deflecting compliments as usual, he said, "I really should be thanking Chanel tonight. My wife looks beautiful."
