Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy in Venice!

Film-maker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy was spotted at the Venice Film Festival, which she attended as a nominee of the Gucci Award for Women in Cinema.

While the winner of the award was Thelma Schoonmaker, a three-time Academy Award winner, for her work editing Hugo, the nominees for the second edition of the prize were Colleen Atwood for costume design in Snow White and the Huntsman, Nadine Labaki, director of Where Do We Go Now?; Brit Marling, actor in Another Earth, and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, director Saving Face.

“The best woman won today!” Obaid-Chinoy posted to Facebook. “Thelma the editor for Hugo! 40 years of experience editing films like Avatar! What an honour to have been nominated alongside her! What a night!”

What we love

We love that Obaid-Chinoy dons the funkiest and most fashionable outfits by Pakistani designers at international red carpet events. Not only did was she wearing a Bunto Kazmi outfit when she bagged an Oscar, she carried a bright Mahin Hussain flag-inspired bag from her August 14 collection “Hum Zinda Qaum Hain”. She also rocked another bright orange Maheen Karim ensemble on awards night. We love the Pakistani pride!
