Jessica Chastain (Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic)
Chastain and Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo made their public debut at the annual Women In Film pre-Academy-Awards celebration in Los Angeles, held at eatery Fig & Olive.
Though the Italian fashion honcho has been courting the "Zero Dark Thirty" star for months, Friday marked the first industry event Jessica braved with her guy -- a rite of passage that he easily aced.
Gian chatted up his gal pal's "The Help" co-stars Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer with ease, even sharing a few laughs with "Silver Linings Playbook" director David O. Russell, though never too far from his date.
Actress Paz Vega stunned in a simple black Michael Kors cocktail dress and chatted with omg! about her just-completed turn in "Grace of Monaco."
Starring Nicole Kidman as Grace Kelly, Vega got to don some dramatic gowns and hit luxurious locations in the South of France to play singer Maria Callas for the period film, which will likely hit the film festival circuit next year.
Perrier-Jouët flowed beside a massive cheese spread, an upscale happy hour vibe permeating while goodie bags of MAC cosmetics were arranged by an exit.
