Piaf? Pfffft! The glamour patrol at Chanel hosts an appropriately chic soirée for La Vie en Rose, the new French movie about the tragically divine Edith Piaf. The film’s star, Marion Cotillard—a.k.a. the super-hot chick from the Russell Crowe (“Put the shrimps on the barbie, put the shrimps on the barbie!”) movie A Good Year, which no one saw—will be in attendance as well as the film’s director, Olivier Dahan. (Our Big-Cheese Editor insists, “I knew Edith Piaf back when she was Edith Rosenstein from Bensonhurst!”) Waaaay downtown, the Fragrance Foundation has its annual FiFi Awards—the Oscars of the fragrance industry! And smelly! They’ve managed to corral some fancy people before they jet off for the summer—Paula Abdul (hic!), Carolina Herrera, Donna Karan, Zac Posen—to swan about in the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center. Meanwhile, an awards ceremony we’re totally behind, the Golden Trailer Awards (“the Academy Awards for the Short-Attention-Spanned”), will decide which of the following deserves the glory of Best Summer Blockbuster Trailer: Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Live Free or Die Hard, Spider-Man 3 or Transformers. Seriously, has no one seen the trailer for La Vie en Rose? Pass the hanky, Mrs. Roosevelt!

[La Vie en Rose premiere, Paris Theater, 4 West 58th Street, 7 p.m., party to follow at Chanel boutique, by invitation only; the 35th Annual FiFi Awards, the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center, Wall Street between Liberty and Vesey streets, 7:15 p.m., www.fragrance.org; the Eighth Annual Golden Trailer Awards, New York University’s Skirball Center, 60 Washington Square South, 7 p.m., www.goldentrailer.com.]
