‘City’ sinners zip to VIP

Dimension crimer lives the good life at Cannes bash

Miramax has a habit of throwing parties for edgy pics out at the Palm Beach, along the Croisette’s far Eastern outpost, but the blisters suffered by kvetching high-heel wearers and the frustrated men who adore them are usually worth the trip.

A hint that aching arches would be a small price to pay Wednesday night for admission to Dimension Films’ blowout for the gritty Cannes competish pic “Sin City” — at Palm Beach club the VIP Room, came in the form of the illicit-looking ticket — a mini metal handcuff chained to a gun and enclosed in a ziplocked baggie.

Pushing the pic for the international crowd were a cadre of “City” dwellers, including Jessica Alba, Benicio Del Toro, Clive Owen, Mickey Rourke, Michael Madsen, Salma Hayek and Brittany Murphy.

Also on hand to toast helmers Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller were George Lucas and Liza Minnelli.
