La divine Deneuve was feted by the assembled glories of french cinema and Hollywood.
There were Absolutely No Photographs once the Gala started so we cannot show you her sumptuous slinkiness in blue.
Or Marty (as we are sure he’d ask us to call him) or her daughter Chiara, nor The Utterly Charming Francois Ozon who directed her in 8 Women.
But the best line went to Susan Sarandon, most definitely.
I am the only presenter, this evening, who has actually slept with Catherine Deneuve.
