I’m not sure Jessica Chastain got the dress code memo for the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards, held on Saturday evening in Santa Monica, California.

Instead of going for a relaxed look like the other attendees at this beachside event, she wore an Armani Privé Spring 2012 skirt suit.

The black suit with lime piping feels way too formal.

It would’ve been great for a photocall or press conference, but I’m not excited about it on this occasion.

A simple updo and black strappy sandals completed her look.
