Lili Reinhart is the face of the future of Max Mara, new NFT vending machine – WWD

Face of the future: “I was at his show in Milan a month ago, it seems crazy to me that it was already a month ago,” Lili Reinhart said of Max Mara. “I loved the whole show.”

The actress was at a cocktail party Tuesday night celebrating her WIF Max Mara Face of the Future award. She is the 17th winner and officially received the honor at the annual Women in Film gala on Thursday. The nonprofit organization, founded in 1973, advocates for working women in Hollywood.

“I was looking at the outfits I wanted to try on for this, and obviously it was just this fancy moment, inspired by little Florence Pugh’s nipples,” she continued, referring to Valentino’s look showing Pugh’s nipples of late. “You know what I am saying?”

Reinhart was wearing a cream turtleneck and a high-waisted skirt.

“I didn’t know what an honor it was,” he said of the recognition. “I think because I was a little shaken up, I hate that word but, as to why I would get it. I still don’t really understand. But I’m like, ‘OK, great.’”

The award is given to women who experience a turning point in their career, working in film and television, with “extraordinary acting achievement and embodiment of timeless style and grace”, according to Max Mara. Previous winners include Zoey Deutch, Katie Holmes, Zoë Saldana and Ginnifer Goodwin.

“My manager, even though I always say, ‘I really don’t know what’s going on or why I’m here,’ she’s like, ‘You know what? You’re doing something right, so she keeps doing what you’re doing,'” Reinhart said. “I’m like, ‘OK.’ But it is truly a great honor. It hasn’t fully settled yet. I think I feel very honored by that, and very, very grateful. My mom is here and I’m happy that my team supports me. I feel the love.”

Held at the West Hollywood edition, a partnership between W Magazine and Maria Giulia Prezioso Maramotti (third generation of the Maramotti family and global brand ambassador), the evening featured Deutch, last year’s award winner; recent Emmy winner Sheryl Lee Ralph; a pregnant Billie Lourd with her husband Austen Rydell; Alessandra Ambrosio; Melina Matsoukas; kathryn newton; Salem Mitchell; madison beer; Lucy Hale; Joy Sunday from Netflix’s upcoming “Wednesday” and Mia Moretti, spinning tunes behind the DJ booth.

Reinhart, who rose to fame for playing Betty Cooper on The CW’s teen drama “Riverdale,” is closing the chapter on the series, now in its seventh and final season.

“It’s exciting and bittersweet,” he said of the impending transition. “That’s why I’m trying to enjoy every day that I’m on set and appreciate it… but I’m also incredibly excited to start filming, filming and producing what I’ve been developing for the last year and a half. -half for my own production company.”

Small Victory Productions, an association with Catherine Hagedorn, has signed an exclusive television and feature film release deal with Amazon Studios. What can we expect?

“Lots of women,” Reinhart said. “Our philosophy was to tell stories about today’s youth that are realistic. What it is to be a young person right now, today, that accurately reflects the human experience, and not the young people written by a bunch of 40-year-old white men in a room.

Champagne Celebrations: Gal Gadot came close to playing Madame Clicquot, Veuve Clicquot’s visionary “Grande Dame of Champagne.”

“Obviously the project never came to life, but I got to discover the life of this amazing woman who was so innovative,” said the Israeli actress, who was wearing a Michael Kors zebra-print dress. “She dared to do things that women back then did not dare to do.”

On Tuesday night, Gadot joined Laura Harrier and Gwyneth Paltrow at the inaugural “Solaire Culture” exhibition. The traveling exhibition, which began in Tokyo last June, dives into the history of Veuve Clicquot: it celebrates 250 years of the champagne house, founded in 1772 in Reims, France.

To honor Madame Clicquot’s entrepreneurial spirit (she is credited with developing the Champagne brand identity after taking over her widowed husband’s business in her 20s), Veuve Clicquot commissioned all women artists to create works of art for the occasion. Sheila Hicks, Tacita Dean, Pénélope Bagieu, Inès Longevial ​​and Monique Frydman are among the exhibitors.

Frydman’s work, an interactive piece, was popular with guests, who kicked off their shoes to dive inside and snap Instagram photos.

“It starts with great admiration for this woman who was able to take over a champagne house in her time and make her mark,” Frydman said of Madame Clicquot and her interest in taking on the project. “That is already very rare. Second, the intoxication of champagne relates to what a painting can evoke. Not the intoxication of alcohol, the intoxication of color, of painting”.

Frydman worked with orange, yellow and pink, which correspond well to his palette as an artist, he said.

Presented by art historian Camille Morineau and designer Constance Guisset, the event marks Veuve Clicquot’s first world touring exhibition. The pop-up window, which includes file objects, is open until November 16.

“This is my first time here, and I love it,” Gadot said of the building at 468 North Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, California: LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s ever-changing 22,250-square-foot pop-up window. space that is expected to become a Cheval Blanc hotel.

“I loved the exhibit,” he continued, pointing to a painting by Yayoi Kusama. She was leaving. “I enjoyed the night. It was just perfect.”

Kusama’s pieces, a portrait and a sculpture, were also featured for Harrier.

“I’m a huge fan of his and have been for years,” Harrier said, wearing Tory Burch. “Everything he does, I love it.”

Veuve Clicquot brings to mind “the iconic orange label,” he said, and “some old-fashioned ones for sure. I mean, Clicquot is what you look for when you’re celebrating, right? — CR
