As is usually the case at Giorgio Armani Prive, A-listers dotted the front row Tuesday for the spring/summer 2013 collection. Among them were actresses Uma Thurman, Hilary Swank, Claudia Cardinale and Isabelle Huppert. Aside from attending fashion shows, Swank made news in Paris over the weekend, but not for the best of reasons: Thieves broke into the taxi in which she riding and snatched her purse. When asked about the incident, the two-time Oscar winner simply smiled and said, "I'm OK, thank you. " Among others in attendance at the show were three striking fashion models: Tallulah Harlech, daughter of longtime Karl Lagerfeld muse Lady Amanda Harlech; Amber Le Bon, daughter of Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon and model Yasmin Le Bon; and deejay Lady Mary Charteris, recently wed to musician Robbie Furze.

NEW YORK - Uma Thurman is bopping around a downtown Asian-fusion restaurant in this city she calls home, having just enthusiastically ordered some of the fried specialties ("I never met a dumpling I didn't like"), her 6-foot-frame and luminous skin incongruous among the normal-sized and average-complected people around her. Thurman has a demonstrative personality that some would call actress-y, though it seems less like a put-on than simply the grand way she chooses to go through life.

Stephen Colbert, who will be the new host of "Late Show" when David Letterman retires next year, has a lot in common with his predecessor. Both are seasoned, popular comedians. Both wear glasses, as Letterman noted. And both have gotten into a bit of hot water when they've stepped from their familiar gigs. PHOTOS: David Letterman's memorable guests Colbert created quite a stir when he performed as the main entertainment at the 2006 White House Correspondents Dinner.

Uma Thurman had a baby girl. She had her in April. In October, the baby's name was announced. It might have taken that long to spell out the whole dang thing. Uma Thurman's new daughter is named Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson, "better known to family and friends as Luna," her rep told People on Wednesday.  What does it all mean? Mom and Dad, Arpad Busson, aren't telling, though we're assured each of the many, many names has "a special reason and meaning" to little Luna's parents.  PHOTOS: The Hollywood baby boom Thurman's other kids, with ex-husband Ethan Hawke, are Maya Ray Thurman-Hawke and Levon Roan Thurman-Hawke.

At the age of 24, Uma Thurman has an enviable acting career. She has played a wide range of roles and has been noticed for all the right reasons--for her versatility and skill as an actress. Sure, she was once on the cover of Rolling Stone's 1989 Hot Issue, and Mademoiselle magazine once called her "a thinking man's sex symbol," but Thurman herself has done nothing to pursue such hype.

Kill Bill Vol. 2 Uma Thurman, David Carradine Miramax, $30 The first volume in Quentin Tarantino's tale of a woman's revenge was so filled with gratuitous gore and mayhem, one didn't harbor much hope that the second installment would be any better. Surprisingly -- shockingly -- it's not only better, "Vol. 2" contains some of the director's best work since "Pulp Fiction" a decade ago. Uma Thurman is on target, so to speak, as the revenge-filled Bride out to kill her former boyfriend Bill.

Minutes before the 5.6.7.8's took the stage at Spaceland on Tuesday, a scuffle broke out between a couple of guys in the packed house. Big deal. The last time most people at the club saw this band, there was total carnage. Of course, that was in the deliciously bloody restaurant scene of Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill Vol. 1," in which Uma Thurman took on Lucy Liu's manic martial arts minions.

The idea underlying "Playing for Keeps," the new romantic comedy starring Gerard Butler, is basic: A well-toned guy who is good with kids is the ultimate aphrodisiac for sex-starved soccer moms. Three very good actresses are squandered to prove the point. And yet, like the former soccer star played by Butler - all hard abs, easy smiles and golden curls, his Scottish brogue set free - the film has some of the right moves. There is cool footage of game-winning kicks, a kid anyone would adore, and Butler's playboy/athlete who seems serious about unearthing his decent side.

When Max Winkler set out to make a movie, he made one thing clear: He didn't want any help from his Hollywood veteran father, no matter how tempting the prospect. Editing his directorial debut, "Ceremony," out of his boyhood bedroom put Winkler mighty close to Dad — Henry Winkler, still remembered best as the Fonz from "Happy Days. " "I would walk down the hall and I would have a spring in my step knowing [Max] was nearby, but as I turned to come in the room, I would see the door almost in my face," the elder Winkler recalled.

She went through a very public divorce and slipped into a yellow jumpsuit to "Kill Bill," a hallmark role that saw her beaten, shot and buried alive. It was 2003, and Uma Thurman needed a laugh. Five years later she arrives at a Manhattan teahouse to discuss her fifth comedy in six films -- no accident, she says -- and it isn't until she giggles loudly that her fellow patrons turn to notice her, prompting whispers and a few camera-phone clicks.
