All of us here at Celebitchy are fans of Jessica Chastain as an actress. As a fashionista, she’s been more on the “miss” side than the “hit” side. I mean, who could forget the light blue Calvin Klein gown she wore for the Golden Globes that did nothing for her? And what of the tragic “shelf boobs” that were on display in an otherwise gorgeous Armani gown at Cannes back in May? But, credit where credit is due, it hasn’t been all fashion fails for Jessica. She did dazzle in a beaded purple Givenchy gown at Cannes. And now, the 40-year-old-actress made it to the “do” list with her fashion choices at the Toronto International Film Fest this past weekend.
It’s almost a fashion given that redheads look good in red, and Jessica was definite proof of this in a fiery red spaghetti strap gown by Zuhair Murad. She accessorized with pink sapphire and diamond earrings from Piaget and Christian Louboutin heels. I love the elegant simplicity of the gown and her hair’s subtle waves and matching red lipstick make her look absolutely radiant. Jessica was dolled up for the premiere of her new movie Woman Walks Ahead on Sunday and posted a hilarious pic to Instagram holding up cardboard cutouts of her head with the caption, “Ugh, that Chastain chick is everywhere.”
Also during the TIFF festivities, Jessica hit the red carpet for the premiere of Molly’s Game (written by Aaron Sorkin, in which she stars as a woman running a high-stakes underground poker ring) in a stunning blue gown from Prada. She’s already proven that blue definitely works for her, although her boobs looked like they were crying out for at least a tiny bit of underwire in the Elie Saab dress she wore to the Spirit Awards earlier this year. This time, the girls looked much happier and Jessica’s pulled back ‘do and perfect makeup showcased her flawless face.
Jessica showed off another creation from Elie Saab, a black print cocktail-length at an event hosted by HFPA and InStyle. I’m not big on prints, and the flared out skirt is something I’m not a fan of, but it fits Jessica well and her hair and makeup look wonderful.
And, going four for four for the weekend, Jessica wore a simple yet sophisticated gold Oscar De La Renta dress to Entertainment Weekly’s Must List Party. Gold tones also suit Jessica’s pale skin and red hair quite well. It’s a little too “mother of the bride” for my taste, but it looks like it was made for the actress. Way to keep the Fashion Police at bay, Jessica!
