Jessica Chastain wins Gucci Award

The Gucci Award for Women in Cinema
As mentioned previously, this new award from fashion powerhouse Gucci was yet another indication of its commitment to the art of cinema, past and present.
Jessica Chastain won the award from a field of five women from all sides of cinema, including directors and screenwriters, for her role in Terrence Malick’s film Tree of Life.

The event on September 3, during the Venice Film Festival, was hosted by Gucci creative director Frida Giannini and attended by a who’s who of women in film, including Madonna (more on her film, W.E., another time), Salma Hayek-Pinault, Abbie Cornish, and fellow nominees Federica Pontremoli and Athena Tsangari—all decked out in Gucci, naturally.

Winner Chastain opted for a dress from the Cruise 2012 (see above)—a black georgette asymmetrical gown with black and gold flower appliqués.

In honour of the award, Gucci will donate US$25,000 to the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, in the name of Jessica Chastain.
