Jessica Chastain attended the 2012 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday night.

Clad in a fabulous blue Louis Vuitton gown, the actress was shimmering with crystal- and pearl-embroidered details.

With a selection of Harry Winston jewels, the Oscar-nominated star of ‘The Help’ completed her look with a bold red lip colour and luscious red Veronica Lake wavy locks.

Following on her trend from Awards Season, Jessica opted not to carry a clutch.
