Plaudits for the Brits... Victoria Beckham Tweets... Prada Touts Totes...

Christopher Bailey, Phoebe Philo, Victoria Beckham and Paul Smith all have been nominated for the 2010 British Fashion Awards.


A FEMALE ART: In collaboration with the Venice International Film Festival, Gucci has extended its cinematographic ties with a new project called the Gucci Award for Women in Cinema that will debut next year. The undertaking celebrates women who reached outstanding achievements in filmmaking in various capacities spanning director, actor, cinematographer, set designer, screenwriter and costume designer.

It replaces the four-year-old Gucci Group Awards that honored artists who made a remarkable contribution to film. In the time leading up to the first award, Gucci and Martin Scorsese’s nonprofit organization, The Film Foundation, will restore “Wanda,” a highly respected independent film directed by Barbara Loden, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

The winner will be selected through an advisory committee headed by Marco Mueller that will provide Frida Giannini, the jury president, with a list of nominees. The award’s first recipient will be revealed at an inaugural event during next year’s Venice Film Festival. Gucci will also grant a $25,000 scholarship fund to a leading film school in the name of the honoree.
