Pint-sized, petulant "Project Runway" victor Christian Siriano begins his fierce Hollywood takeover with80300907 "Eloise in Paris." The designer will create a couture collection, which will be unveiled in the Paris Fashion Week scenes at the movie's finish. Uma Thurman stars, alongside Aussie newcomer Jordana Beatty as the precocious tot. And three-time Oscar-winning costume designer Milena Canonero ("A Clockwork Orange"; "Marie Antoinette") will act as visual consultant. reports:

"Based on the classic 1950s children's book by Kay Thompson, Eloise jets off to Paris for Fashion Week and, along with one of Europe's top designers, finds herself chasing after a stolen dress."

But WHO will play one of Europe's top designers? Please, make it Karl Lagerfeld. Who needs Eloise? Call it "The Kaiser and the Kid."
