At a Champagne reception prior to the Giorgio Armani Prive show in Paris on Tuesday, Milla Jovovich caught up with fellow haute couture aficionados. A regular at the Paris shows, the “Resident Evil” star glittered in an aquamarine Armani jacket. Naomie Harris, too, came outfitted in Armani, in her case in a white confection of a top that revealed a peek of midriff. Before heading for her seat, the Bond girl from “Skyfall” said she was very much looking forward to the show.

It's widely acknowledged that Sigourney Weaver is the queen of sci-fi. (Her status as such was well-cemented way before "Avatar. ") Paul W.S. Anderson, director of "Resident Evil: Afterlife," thinks that the action star of his franchise, one Milla Jovovich, has the chops to be in the conversation with Weaver among the genre's best. "There are very few women that have anchored four action movies -- the only one I can think of is Sigourney Weaver with the 'Alien' movies. And Sigourney really was the jewel in the crown of that franchise.

Fighting legions of monsters? No problem. Behaving like an "animal," even with the help of Robert De Niro and Edward Norton? Problem. " 'Resident Evil' movies are easy because they're so fun, with the excitement and the action; with a movie like 'Stone,' it was such a hard character to play," says Milla Jovovich, whose Lucetta may be a sexual weapon in the duel between De Niro's and Norton's characters, or possibly much more. "It was one of those people I would never want to know in my real life.

The grass is always greener, especially when not tainted by the blood of zombies. Whereas most actresses in Hollywood would probably give their eyeteeth, or someone else's, to have an action franchise, Milla Jovovich suffers her share of combat fatigue. She's sincerely delighted with -- and dedicated to -- the undead-stomping "Resident Evil" series (she's suiting up for No.

Milla Jovovich was having her cheeks contoured by a makeup artist for her second photo shoot of the day. She explained to an entourage of hair, wardrobe and makeup people how she had gained 30 pounds in her first trimester of pregnancy. "I'd get up in the morning and eat two bagels," she said, "with butter and peanut butter." She was cramming a lot into this August morning too. Her staff was stepping over each other in a tiny Chateau Marmont suite, getting the actress photo-ready.

The good news is that your fact- checkers correctly spelled "Stratocaster" in your article about Milla Jovovich playing at Luna Park ("Milla goes Luna," by Mark Ehrman, So SoCal, Sept. 5). The bad news is that Jovovich is clearly playing a Telecaster in the accompanying photo. For you newspaper folk, that would like calling an inch a pica. Jonathan Bourne Santa Monica

*** Milla, "The Divine Comedy," SBK/ERG. Forget that Russian-born Milla Jovovich is a supermodel-actress. Forget that she's just 18 years old. Forget the pretentious album title. This debut would be a solid effort even for a seasoned veteran. Milla's strong writing and mature vocals (both somewhat in the Kate Bush mode) make one hope that this is not just a dilettantish side trip but the start of a full music career.

While "The Master" grabs this week's prestige-movie hype, that other Paul Anderson - middle initials: W.S.; occupying aesthetic: hyperviolent sci-fi - had a film released too. It's the fifth in the "Resident Evil" franchise of loud, metallic commercials for firing/jumping/throwing prowess and zombie slaughter, aimed at that segment of moviegoers ostensibly on a break from doing the same via their game consoles. The other sequel titles - "Apocalypse," "Extinction," "Afterlife" - tantalizingly implied nowhere more to go. But here we are with "Retribution," which finds poster gal for disaster survival Alice (Milla Jovovich)

One thing "Resident Evil" honcho Paul W.S. Anderson has figured out about his franchise: Once the train leaves the station, it's best not to make any stops. His new installment (fourth as writer-producer, second as director), "Resident Evil: Afterlife" is an express to Monstertown on tracks greased with zombie entrails. For those not steeped in the gory legend risen from the popular video games, Milla Jovovich plays Alice, former operative and now arch-nemesis of the Umbrella Corporation.

Newlywed actress and model Milla Jovovich, the weapon-toting glammando from the "Resident Evil" films, has sold a Beverly Hills Post Office-area home for $2.75 million. Although she lived in the John Woolf-designed, Hollywood Regency-style home for a couple of years after her 2001 purchase, the Ukraine-born cover girl with the striking eyes more recently had been renting it out. The 3,582-square-foot home, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, sits on about 1.2 acres at the end of a cul-de-sac.

HYPED AS: Milla Jovovich plugs in her Stratocaster and headlines at Luna Park in West Hollywood. * REALITY: "Aw, man, I don't even want to tell when I started playing guitar, because for the amount that I play, it's embarrassing." It's charming self-deprecation from the rock 'n' roll front woman, former Avedon model and star of "The Fifth Element" and "Return to the Blue Lagoon"--hold that snicker. Apparently for Jovovich, spewing art comes as naturally as breathing.

AFTER just a few years, the fast fashion phenomenon has come down to a pretty predictable formula: Mass-market retailer hires cool designer, hypes the collaboration like mad but produces just a few pieces, and waits for the stampede. Proenza Schouler at Target. Viktor & Rolf at H&M. Roland Mouret at the Gap. All of those limited collections sold out in days, if not hours. Now comes Jovovich-Hawk for MNG, making a comparatively stealth debut today in a store you probably haven't even heard of.

Perhaps the best of the three features being released on DVD today, "Shoot 'Em Up" (New Line, $29) casts magnetic leading man Clive Owen as an angry loner who finds himself protecting an infant -- after he delivers the baby in a warehouse amid a raucous gunfight. Over-the-top in every possible way, the action-thriller also features a memorable turn from Paul Giamatti, who seems to be enjoying himself playing against type as a well-groomed but sleazoid hit man; Monica Bellucci plays a lactating prostitute -- yes, you read that right -- who serves as the baby's surrogate mother.
