Jessica Chastain in Saint Laurent at the Cannes amfAR gala: unflattering or lovely?

Last night was the big amfAR gala at the Cannes Film Festival. It’s become of the biggest events of the year, although looking through the photos… this year was slightly boring, which is no surprise because there’s been a real lack of “big name” celebrities and A-list gossip coming out of this year’s Cannes events. CB emailed me & Bedhead some of these Jessica Chastain photos, asking if we thought Jessica looked pregnant. I’m not sure! From some angles, this Saint Laurent dress is either unflattering or barely masking a baby bump. It does seem like Jessica is “sucking in” in some photos, so I really don’t know. Her jewelry is Bulgari, just FYI.

Here’s Dita Von Teese in Ulyana Sergeenko. I’ve developed a late-in-life love affair with velvet. I love this dress. It’s gorgeous, and it works beautifully on Dita. My only complaint is that it doesn’t seem like the best choice for a summer event in the south of France? This is more “New York at Christmas”.

Janet Jackson in Armani Privé. I hate this, but it doesn’t matter. Janet is richer than God and she just married a billionaire. My hatred for this fug outfit can eat it.

Stacy Keibler in Elie Saab. Didn’t Charlize Theron wear a dress that looked a lot like this several years ago? It’s giving me strong Charlize vibes. And all I can see is Stacy’s crazy body, which is truly amazing. But when you see beyond the dress and the body… this is poorly styled. She needs a bracelet, some interesting earrings and a real hairstyle.

Aishwayra Rai in a golden sari by Indian designer Tarun Tahiliani. Let me tell you something as a half-Indian woman: Indian women LOVE gold. We love metallics, but especially gold. It’s like a universal thing with Indian woman. I rarely wear yellow gold jewelry or gold clothes because I’m not crazy about how it looks with my particular skin tone, but I think Aish is pulling this off spectacularly. Plus, this is just a really beautiful sari on a really beautiful woman.

    I actually really like Jessica’s dress here. This is how she should be dressing at events like the Golden Globes and Oscars.

  2. Anna says:

    Stop trying to make “Chastain: Fashion Girl” happen! It’s never going to happen!

  3. eileen says:

    Say what you want about Angelina Jolie. To me Aishwayra Rai is hands DOWN the most beautiful woman in the world. She is breathtaking! Total perfection.

  4. OhDear says:

    Jessica Chastain’s dress has underboob, but otherwise the coloring suits her.

    Not a fan of Stacy Keibler’s dress – that bow is… no.

  5. Hautie says:

    How is it that Janet Jackson was broke last Summer… but suddenly a billionaire this Summer?

    (I smell BS wafting off that whole “billionaire” story I read in the Daily Mail.)

    Now with that being said. :) Janet looks nice. She has always been a girl that loves the baggy pants.

    And I rather see the baggy pants, over seeing another shaved bare hoo-ha peeking out from a dress.

  6. Deb says:

    Dita looks amazing, love that length paired with the ankle strap shoes. Very Grace Kelly-ish. Jessica looks fug as always. She has never had a good style.

  7. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    I LOVE what Dita’s wearing, I love that and Aishwarya looks gorgeous as usual. Chastain – well, I saw similar dresses at my prom a few years ago so I’m not impressed. However, I do love it when redheads wear red (don’t ask me why, I just do) and that part of the outfit is great.

  8. Aiobhan says:

    I love a red head in red.

    The only nice things on Janet are her hair and that she looks very happy. Her outfit

  9. Angelven says:

    I think they all look beautiful. I love the silhouette on Dita it reminds me of old Dior. And Aishwayra Rai is breathtaking.

  10. oivey says:

    Jessica Chastain is flawless to me. Even when she’s not. Because I don’t know what’s going on with that underboob thing. And if she’s still working with Elizabeth Stewart as her stylist, she should look for a new one.

    I’m aware this comment makes little to no sense. I’m exhausted (it’s nearly the end of the semester for some of us Aussie uni students)

  11. valleymiss says:

    If Jessica Chastain looks pregnant, then I look like I’m carrying triplets. Sheesh. She’s thin as a rail in that side shot! The dress is ok. I mainly love the color on her. Us pale girls gotta stick with the bold jewel tones. Good choice! Aishwarya looks gorgeous, too!

  12. embertine says:

    I think Jessica looks fab here, although I am not a fan of the cut-out dress look. We get it, you have abs! Congrats! Now put them away; you are not a figure skater.

    Aishwayra Rai looks absolutely divine. Literally, she looks like the personification of the goddess Parvati.

  13. videli says:

    Both Jessica and Aishwayra are breathtaking, in different ways. I’m gawking at them like a little girl looking at beautiful all dolled-up ladies.

    I have that little belly bump even on a slim day.

  14. janie says:

    Sorry.. Jessica didn’t do it for me? Don’t like the color, style, fit, nothing about it.

  15. Julie says:

    Aishwayra Rai looks like a goddess! WOW! All the other women look so plain and boring in comparison.

    • Fleurthefrenchy says:

      she does look like a goddess because:
      a) she’s amazingly beautiful
      b) she’s wearing gold, loads of gold!
      c) her posture is feminine and elegant…even her hands are delicately positioned! It is very reminiscent of old Hollywood and makes a HUGE difference…

  16. Abby says:

    I like Stacy’s dress–would love to have her body. Aishwayra looks stunning. I actually like Janet’s outfit. Jessica–she looks pretty but I don’t love the dress. Dita looks like Vivian Leigh in Gone With the Wind. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  17. Yup says:

    Rai is just gorgeous! Good gravy. And I don’t hate Janet’s look the way I maybe should.

    For me, Jessica Chastain is utterly stunning here and equally elegant and sexy as hell. I love the dress, the color, and her styling. Love.

  18. ladybert62 says:

    And the winners of these photos are?

    Dita and Stacey!

    • Me Three says:

      Wow! Different strokes! I like Dita’s dress and think it suits her but agree with Kaiser…that dress would be great at a red carpet event in December, not at a summer event in the South of France.

      As far as Stacy, since she became GF of, her style has gone from cheap WWE T&A fashion to actual decent fashion choices over the last several months. And yet, no matter how much they clean her up, she still somehow always has that budget look somewhere. Her hair is just sad and makeup is doing nothing to help a rather plain face. And, while I think her body is amazing, she’s lost too much weight and is starting to look less toned and more lollipop girl…like most of Hollywood sadly.

  19. Tania says:

    Lots of very beautiful women in this post! I adore Jessica Chastain, she looks lovely, I love the tousled waves (I can never get it right) and I love that she is owning the beauty of her flawless pale skin. I think pale girls get a lot of flack!
    Aishwarya is flawless as well. She is a true beauty, her sari is the most beautiful I have ever seen and she is glowing and healthy. More of both these women, please.

  20. BooBooLaRue says:

    I’m sorry but what is Jessica’s appeal? Dita is lovely and so is Aishwarya Rai! Janet can do whatever she wants in my book. Stacy looks rode hard and put away wet.

  21. dahlianoir says:

    There’s still jewelwry left at Cannes ?

  22. Maggie says:

    Jessica Chastain is so beautiful. Love the red on her.

  23. kaligula says:

    Jessica’s acting annoys me to the hilt but I must say, the girl always kills it on the red carpet, IMO.

    Janet looks insane (not in a good way).

    Stacy looks lovely but isn’t that a little too prom-y?

    Dita is impeccable, because she can’t not be.

    As for Aishwayra– eh…she’s obviously a beauty but…for some reason she never blows me away in photos….

  24. savanna says:

    Stacy is in Zac Posen, not Elie Saab. (I follow Zac on Instagram and he already posted about how good she looked in the design)

  25. NEENAZEE says:

    Stacy’s dress and pose are very striking… very L’instant Taittinger. But her budget hair and spray tan always scream ‘white trash’ to me…

  26. Chordy says:

    All these are nice, especially Aishwayra Rai, but where’s the Cannes fashion porn? Where’s the drama? Cannes is usually the look-at-me fashion event of the year! Between this and the coma-inducing Met Gala, I think the fashion world needs a hot controversy injection.

  27. Ginger says:

    I like Jessica’s dress and truly love it when a redhead wears a red gown. I don’t think she’s preggers. She’s probably PMS’ing. Lord knows, I’ve sucked my stomach in for photos lots of times. I think she is just gorgeous! But I’m not really in love with her hairstyle. Maybe its frizzy because Cannes is humid? As for the sari on Aishwayra, I have to say that I am biased. I grew up in the bay area in Northern California and they had all sorts of shops full of beautiful sari’s. I would think how gorgeous the Indian women were who frequented the shops and ran around town in the most colorful sari’s I have ever seen. I wish I could pull that off but I have the coloring of Jessica Chastain. Dita can do no wrong in my eyes but you have a point about the dress looking more like a Winter gown.

  28. Anise says:

    Jesus Christ, Jess Chastain is a twig, her body betrays the smallest of natural curves and it’s a possible baby bump? All women have a layer of fat on their lower abdomen. Hers is miniscule. I guess her heels aren’t high enough, that’s how most actresses make it appear perfectly flat (and give themselves lower back problems).

  29. Mia says:

    I love Jessica’ dress. Red and gold go really well with her complexion and hair color. Aishwayra looks stunning as usual. Her golden makeup makes her face look like it’s glowing, and the gold material her sari is made from looks SO sumptuous and elegant. Love her! And Dita’s outfit is shockingly underwhelming to me. I usually love what she wears. Janet’s pants are not doing her any favors. :-/

  30. Grant says:

    I think Jessica’s dress looks fine but I don’t like her hair. It looks like she’s coming back from the pool with a wet head.

  31. dcypher1 says:

    Dita looks amazing as always. I love her style. I love how she looks like she stepped out of a time machine. Oh and I also love saris. I’m not Indian but I think they are so beautiful. I want one so bad.
