Jessica Chastain has been named the brand ambassador for Swiss watch and jewelry company Piaget.

This appointment is a clear fit for the elegant, delicate and ethereally stunning star, who has received two Academy Award nominations in recent years for her work in The Help and Dark Zero Thirty.

“We are thrilled to introduce Jessica Chastain as our new international brand ambassador. She embodies Piaget’s unique values — from her audacious acting career choices to her unrelenting passion for perfection. She is beautiful, elegant, charismatic and full of joy,” said Philippe Léopold-Metzger, chief executive officer of Piaget.

The titian-haired actress may have been hinting at the ambassadorship in recent days, given that she’s worn Piaget to a string of events from the New York premiere of A Most Violent Year to the Independent Spirit Awards nominees brunch in Los Angeles, which was also presented by Piaget.

In a statement, the Juilliard-trained stunner (who also happens to be the face of Yves Saint Laurent’s Manifesto fragrance) said, “It is an incredible honor to be in partnership with Piaget. They believe in innovation and boldness in their approach with pieces that are modern but respect the company’s rich heritage. Their attention to detail is unparalleled and their beautiful collection reflects the company’s motto to ‘Always do better than necessary’.”

As international Piaget brand ambassador, the 37-year-old actress will make appearances at events around the world, adding pieces from Piaget’s jewelry and watch collections to her distinctive looks.
