Jessica Chastain In Armani Privé – 2012 Independent Spirit Awards

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.

    What a bizarre choice for the Spirit Awards. She looks like she’s at a conference.

        +1 But I like the tousled hair

    Most who attended wore suits and wore the same color scheme. I think it’s a great look. It’s simple and beautiful. I have this strong feeling that sh will be wearing Armani Prive to the Oscars!

    Agreed about the conference – but in any case, the jacket waist is not well fitted, and I don’t like the skirt’s cut.

    It might be time for another open letter FC cause this is getting ridiculous.

    +1 for too formal. But she still looked beautiful.

    This is her much awaited colaboration with Giorgio?

    Why didn’t she wear the runway ensemble? At least it’s elegant, but not ‘office-ready’.

    I love Jessica very much as an actress. But why she always dresses like and old lady?! At least she could go with the look on a model.

    It might have been great with the lime skirt from the runway, but this just looks too “business” rather than red carpet, casual or formal.

    I just don’t know what to do with Jessica. One time she surprises me by looking amazing and choosing the right and event appropriate ensembles but the other time, especially on this occasion, she disappoints me so much. This is definitely not event appropriate, too formal and boring.
    Does she have a stylist? If not then she should get one immediately or sit down for hours and think exactly what to wear next.

    It’s such a good look, it’s a pity it’s not event appropriate…

    She looks fantastic from the waist up, but I really don’t like the skirt nor the shoes

    Great hair and makeup. Not wild about the suit.

    this is actually one of my favourites from the collection. i wish she had worn the runway skirt instead because it was the essence of the whole look
