Jessica Chastain has a full head of hair again: disappointing or pretty?

I have to admit that I was disappointed to see these photos of Jessica Chastain at a screening of Lawless at the MoMA last night. We just saw her on the NY set of her film, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, sporting a short, flattering asymmetric haircut that looked like it was real and not a wig. Let’s revisit that for a reminder. (Note that her cute dog only has three legs. I didn’t notice that before until some of you pointed it out.)

Now Jessica has hair again, and I’m guessing these are extensions since they look a little fake. (Not obvious-fake, but you can tell if you look closely.) I was hoping to see her rock her new short hair on the red carpet, but we’ll have to wait until she’s comfortable with it.

Jessica is in vintage Yves Saint Laurent paired with YSL shoes. As Red Carpet Fashion awards points out, she’s the face of YSL’s fragrance, Manifesto. So she’s being loyal to her sponsors, but she could have picked a better dress than this. Paired with those shoes, she looks like a flamenco dancer in mourning. She doesn’t often get her fashion right, but she’s so pretty regardless.

Also at last night’s premiere we have the original hipster, Chloe Sevigny, in a too short flouncy frock paired with black ankle boots and a black clutch. She completes the look with red orange lipstick and natural hair, which makes me appreciate the relative effort Chastain went to compared to this.

Shia LaBeouf was there looking greasy in a shiny brown suit paired with a copper tie. Joseph Gordon Levitt or Ryan Gosling could wear this suit, but it just looks out of place on Shia. A haircut and shave would do wonders for him.

And finally here’s Patricia Clarkson looking gorgeous in a summery silky dress, nude pumps and a matching purse. Look at her dainty gold heart bracelet and coordinating necklace. This is how you do dressy casual. I just looked up her age, because I was guessing a very hot-looking 45. She’s 52! Work it, Patricia!

Here’s the trailer for Lawless. It’s also got Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy and Guy Pierce in it! It looks kind of awesome. It’s out in the US on August 29th.

    Patricia Clarkson should be at the top! She looks fan-freaking-tastic for any age.

    “a flamenco dancer in mourning” is incredibly accurate for JC’s get-up. I like her short hair much better than what she’s up to here.

    All the awards to the original hipster Chloe Sevigny <3

    Oh…I loved her short cut; she can rock it but poo that she’s not ready. Sad no Mia W. I will see this movie!

    Jessica’s dog is so sweet! It’s nice to see an actress with real talent do so well.

    I’m getting a bad vibe from Shia, I’m not sure why. Not the attitude (that’s not new) but something just seems off. Hopefully not drugs…but hell, who saw Heath Ledger coming? Hope I’m wrong.

    I like the short hair better, looks really good..

    I will never understand why Chole Sevigny is considered fashionable, great actress though..

    Hey Celebitchy, how can you tell she is wearing extensions (without knowing she cut her hair a while back)?

    While I knew they were extensions, they look real to me atleast.

    Patricia Clarkson looks fantastic and is gorgeous. Jessica’s jewelry is super hideous but maybe I want to eat it because it reminds me of candy coated black licorice. Chloe: I like the idea of her dressing an alter ego but those black boots look hipster-stupid-as-*insert expletive here*. Shia: Ugh.

    I was so sad when I didn’t see Hardy in those premiere pics this morning. -le sigh- That man…unf. Can’t wait for ‘Lawless’ to come out. It’s also been a good read.

    And what about the atrocities that are her bracelets?

    I liked the short hair, made her look younger. Oh well.

    Patricia Clarkson looks great – Tammy Swanson #1!

    As a rule I’m usually against women having short hair, just IMO, (cough hateMileysnewlookitscreamsdesperationinhercase cough)but Jessica’s style, with that dress, those shades, that lighting and that cute dog, has to be one of the most glamorous pictures ever taken of her. She absolutely rocks that short hair, it looks incredible on her.

    I think Jessica looks gorgeous with short or long hair – and I usually hate short hair so that’s quite an achievement. She’s an example of a great actress who remains laid back and has not let it get to her head, I really appreciate that. I just wish she would nail it fashion wise, her looks are always a bit off, it’s a real pity with such a lovely face and hair.

    Chloé Sevigny – ugh. She tries too hard. I’ve always found her unattractive and too affected.

    Love Jessica, she has a great personality and I love her acting

  13. Nina says:

    JC’s short hair looks amazing and refreshing. But the blue nails and candy bracelets at the premiere make her look like a 14-year old playing dress up. CS always looks like an idiot, imo… I don’t get why she’s hailed as a fashion vanguard, but I think she’s a talented actress. SLB just looks frightening, like he’ll be on a water tower with a gun any day now…

    Jesus, Shia. Get it together.
