Jessica Chastain wore a chartreuse Gucci to the Emmys: amazing?

There are always so many rules about what colors redheads can wear, but ladies like Julianne Moore and Jessica Chastain always flout them. I’m always left with questions like “oh, so redheads do look good in red?” and “who knew a redhead would look good in chartreuse?” Well, Jessica Chastain had a feeling she would look good in chartreuse, so she turned up to the Emmy Awards in this Gucci. It could either way, depending on the lighting and the shade, but she actually makes this work?

Love Issa Rae to pieces, but this Pamella Roland feathered-and-beaded sack/poncho dress is NOT the look. Even Laverne Cox couldn’t muster up a compliment about it. The one nice thing I’ll say is that Issa is so pretty, she elevates this.

Katherine Heigl in Reem Acra. The elements were all there, but it ended up looking really cheap. I think the bust was the problem.

Monica Bellucci & Tim Burton attended their first award show together as a couple. Monica rocked that tuxedo and they seem to enjoy each other. Hm.

Tyler James Williams wore Dolce & Gabbana – he said on the carpet that he felt like he was doing sort of an homage to Eddie Murphy’s leather-jumpsuit era. I can see that.

    Jessica Chastain looks spectacular. She’s probably my favorite to see what she is wearing because it is always different and interesting.

  2. Josephine says:

    I think Issa’s dress needs to be seen in motion. Her styling was beautiful and I can live with the dress because she just elevates it.

    Katherine’s is really off. It adds bulk and is just plain unflattering.

    • Kate says:

      Her dress was gorgeous in motion but I liked it in photos too! I thought Issa looked terrific, she almost always knocks it out of the park IMO.

    • Lexilla says:

      Like Lainey says I love a good sack dress. There’s something badass about a woman choosing not to show every bit of her body for public consumption.

    • bananapanda says:

      Katherine looks overdressed or missed reading the room.

      During the Grey’s bit I kept wondering where the other two “originals” were – TR Knight at least, if not Sandra Oh. It was awkward having KH there.

      • Josephine says:

        I don’t think TR Knight left with the most favorable feelings toward that show and likely moved on a long time ago.

  3. Ameerah M says:

    Jessica looks amazing. And redheads can wear MOST colors and look pretty good in them. I didn’t hate Issa’s dress but I didn’t love it either. I think it looks better in photos where she’s moving than when she’s standing still. Monica’s look is whatever. Katherine Heigl’s dress looks like an off the rack Jessica McClintock dress.

    • Genevieve says:

      Katherine Heigl would have trouble making anything *not* look like an off-the-rack dress. She is very pretty, but her style has always leaned toward the geriatric and corny, and she opposite-of-elevates whatever she wears.

      I kind of like Issa Rae’s dress. It’s not the usual, and it looks like she’s enjoying it. I could totally see myself going, “You know what? It’s winter. Cover me up.”

      • smcollins says:

        Completely agree about KH, her red carpet style has never been good. In movies like Knocked Up and 27 Dresses she was so effortlessly gorgeous and then you get her in real life and it’s like 🤷🏻‍♀️. That obviously hasn’t improved with age (she’s still a beautiful woman but her style/styling is so unflattering imo).
        JC is so stunning in pretty much anything she wears, it’s hard to make that woman look bad (and my husband would agree as she’s one of his celebrity crushes).
        Same with IR, she’s so beautiful it hurts.

      • Jaded says:

        KH is pretty top-heavy and something more sleek with a higher neckline would have suited her much better. This dress just draws your eyes to the weird-fitting bustline. Whoever dressed her on Suits did a good job, she should have stuck with them.

    • Concern Fae says:

      I also think some of the reason for the stretching of the colors redheads “can” wear is that colorists have gotten much better at creating a variety of red shades. Previously, natural redheads had a more limited range of colors and also likely had very pale skin as well.

  4. Prairiegirl says:

    Look at Issa’s expression! She looks like she’s having fun in that dress and that adds a lot to its presentation. So, I approve LOL not that she needs it.

  5. Kate says:

    She looks more and more plastic everyday.

    • TQ says:

      Yeah, Jessica is really beautiful, love her satorial choices, and has so much talent. Currently one of my favorite female actors. But I wish she’d stop messing with her face. Not sure if it’s just fillers or also buccal fat removal, etc. Regardless she so doesn’t need all that — she’s gorgeous and talented.

    • Grant says:

      I don’t think she looks plastic here at all. She definitely gets Botox but I don’t think it looks egregious.

  6. Cheshire Sass says:

    Love the chartreuse on Jessica – I actually like Issa’s dress on her, the movement is great – You’re supposed to wear the clothes, not the clothes wear you, she carries it off spectacularly. I’m sure I would look like cousin It in that dress because I don’t have the height, or build to pull it off! Everyone else, meh

  7. Cherry says:

    I’m just here for Monica Bellucci & Tim Burton. Love Monica’s tux. Hate what she did to her gorgeous face. I mean, these two are more or less the same age, yes? Why does he get to look like her grandpa?

  8. Kaye says:

    Jessica looks wonderful. It makes me want to watch “Miss Sloane” again with the all classy executive business woman wardrobe.

    • Grant says:

      She was so great in Miss Sloane and the fashion was unreal. Same with Molly’s Game. She elevates everything she’s in, IMO.

  9. LeahTheFrench says:

    Jessica would look like a Goddess even if she wore a garbage bag – but yeah, she’s probably the only person on the planet who can pull off that shade of chartreuse (her styling really works with the dress, too).
    Agree that Issa’s dress is probably much nicer in motion. It looks a bit like she’s skinned a muppet, but I could see these fringes working better on video.
    Heigl’s look and styling are very dated here. It looks like she went for an “old Hollywood Glamour” vibe but this is falling completely flat, it just looks stiff and matronly.

  10. JaneS says:

    An impossible color to flatter anyone in.
    Hard No from me.

  11. Hell Nah! says:

    They all look great! Yeah, even Katharine.

  12. Justwasting time says:

    Chastain’s dress was a stunning color, kind of boring design. Rae’s dress was a stunning design, kind of boring color. Both women looked wonderful but I think subtle tweaks to the dresses would have made them (the dresses) go from beautiful to spectacular.

  13. Grant says:

    @Jessica Chastain. Stunning, I actually love the color on her. Her makeup, styling, and gorgeous hair also look great too!

  14. Jay says:

    I’m so envious of how Jessica Chastain can pull off that chartreuse shade – it’s a high degree of difficulty, but I think the fact that her colouring has so much warmth helps. She looks great in orangey reds, too! Also glad that she is back to the red hair.

  15. Bread and Circuses says:

    My goodness, Tyler James Williams is a handsome man (and looks fantastic in that suit!)
