The final stretch to the Oscar has officially begun.

Festivities kicked off in LA yesterday evening with the 40th anniversary of Charlie Chaplin’s honorary Academy Award at the Chateau Marmont.

Jessica Chastain completely blew me away in a Kelly green Elie Saab Spring 2012 gown.

The bright dress makes the actress’ waist look teeny, cinched with a matching green belt, and lace insets around her décolletage add a hint of skin.

I can’t wait to see what Jessica brings to the carpet over the coming days.
