Saint Laurent has become one of the first leading luxury fashion maisons to win an award at the Cannes Film Festival.

Through the house’s Saint Laurent Productions company, it was awarded the Jury Prize and the Best Actress Prize for its film “Emilia Perez” at the 77th Cannes Film Festival this weekend. 

The latter prize was shared between the four leading actresses in the movie, Selena Gomez, Adriana Paz, Zoe Saldaña and Karla Sofía Gascón. 

The film was one of three supported by the house which premiered at Cannes this year.

The other two films that premiered included “The Shrouds” by David Cronenberg and “Parthenope”
 by Paolo Sorrentino. 

Saint Laurent Productions is a registered subsidiary of the house and marks the first fashion house to count the full-fledged production of films among its activities. 

According to the house, the division, envisioned by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent, is in line with Vaccarello’s assured steering of the brand into the future, while echoing the cinematic breadth and nuances of his collections.
