Jessica Chastain In Louis Vuitton – 2012 Met Gala

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.

    I really hate this look. Her twins seem to be squeezed, her eyes are puffy and the dress itself is quite… unimaginative.

      +1. Not only her twins look squeezed, but everything from the hips up.
      And her eye make-up… it makes her look disturbingly Tilda Swinton-ish.

        I agree!

        She doesn’t look a bit like the beautiful girl I’m used to seeing..

  2. Jacqu May 8, 2012 at 14:34 #

    It looks like a dress made for a Saloon Girl or a high class bordello (in my imagination anyway) but she makes it work so well. She looks lovely.

    So much better than fanning!

    • Ramsay May 8, 2012 at 15:00 #

      Yes but that’s really not that difficult

    The only thing that I like from this dress is her wave. But, her dress and her jewellry is no, BIG NO, from me.

  5. Yeliz May 8, 2012 at 14:47 #

    Disaster. Jessica can do so much better. Besides a lot attendees seem to love that dark lip colour but I just hate it!

    FC did you sleep at all today? You seem to post non stop.

    • Fashion Critic May 8, 2012 at 14:58 #

      just 3 hours…and I’m not tired…will feel it tomorrow no doubt :D

      • Yeliz May 8, 2012 at 15:05 #

        Oh.. Well I didn’t sleep much either, I had a practical test today but got up one hour earlier to see some of your posts. But it was definitely more than 3 hours. I hope that after the MET posts you will relax at least for more than 3 hours. :)

        • Fashion Critic May 8, 2012 at 15:23 #

          Yes, I am going out to dinner this evening. I booked the date especially to make sure I get out of the house :D

          • Yeliz May 8, 2012 at 15:25 #

            A very good idea. :D Have fun!

  6. Christine May 8, 2012 at 14:53 #

    I love the jewels and the color. That’s about it.

  7. msd May 8, 2012 at 14:53 #

    In Jessica’s case, her homage to Prada appears to be “”give me a full ballerina skirt and a hint of saloon”. Eek.

  8. Ramsay May 8, 2012 at 14:59 #

    I like that make -up – btw have you noticed that we have not seen any Chanel dresses on the red carpet (same thing for the oscars – except that Emma Stone dress but that was for the party)

  9. Zineb May 8, 2012 at 15:00 #

    What a disaster ! Only thing I like is the hair !

  10. Alina May 8, 2012 at 15:08 #

    Love the hair. As for the dress … why not Armani Prive or Alexander McQueen?

  11. Riley May 8, 2012 at 15:15 #

    At first I hated the gown but it’s grown on me as I like the color and the embellishments and how amazing it makes her twins look.

    But it’s not her best look.

  12. LeeAnn May 8, 2012 at 15:21 #

    I love the colour butbthe more and more I look at it the more I hate it. Only a dress designed by a gay man can make breasts look this bad.

  13. asherlev1 May 8, 2012 at 15:24 #

    Why does her stylist hate her?

    With the exception of her Oscars look, every other look has almost seemed like sabotage.

    • EmmaWoodhouse May 9, 2012 at 16:18 #

      I know, and it’s so sad! She’s so gorgeous and the McQueen was a life-long memorable moment of awesomeness, but this…:( Sadness. Again.

  14. marcy May 8, 2012 at 15:33 #

    I love her but this is terrible. So unflattering and the material is so wrinkled. And she desperately needs some eyebrow shading.

  15. Fiona May 8, 2012 at 15:44 #

    This is just awful – she looks so old in the face as her makeup is so ageing, and the dress is not flattering to her figure. It is hard to believe this is Louis Vuitton – the earrings are also completely wrong for this dress, not sure what would have been better really, but not this.

    FC, Thank you for such great coverage! This has been such a fun day for this stay at home mum.

    I really don’t like this dress on her. I love all the detailing at the top of the gown, but something about this isn’t flattering for her. I think it makes her look wider? She should have stuck with McQueen since she did so great at the Oscars.

    • Fashion Critic May 8, 2012 at 16:25 #

      my pleasure x

  18. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) May 8, 2012 at 16:10 #

    Loathe the dress. Pretty hair and makeup.

  19. Rebecca Z May 8, 2012 at 16:34 #

    Agree with the saloon girl comments. Really sad.

  20. britta May 8, 2012 at 16:42 #

    this has to be the worst she has ever looked?

    *let down.

  21. robbie May 8, 2012 at 16:55 #

    looks like a cheap prom dress.

  22. Fashion mint May 8, 2012 at 16:56 #

    I m sorry but I absolutely hate this look..i m sad there was only one Elie Saab,no prabal gurung & Jason woo ..FC correct me if I m wrong but was there no Chanel & Gucci at met this year ?

  23. Amanda May 8, 2012 at 17:10 #

    LOVE IT!!

  24. Hannah May 8, 2012 at 17:15 #

    Urgh this is awful. I don’t liek the makeup or the dress, espcially together. Besides the Oscars, the reasons for her being with her stylist are beyodn me. This is so unflttering on her, creased & poorly styled. She looks orange in one light 7 washed out in the next, and much, much older than she is. She has such a beuatiful face, so her makeup artist should go too.
    Also, it is clear that her stylist is either pobic or allergic to clutches, because I beliee it is the same stylist as Jennifer Lawrence, and she never ever carries a clutch either.

  25. ash May 8, 2012 at 17:45 #

    Obviously, Marc doesn`t like het AT ALL.

    What is up with that bodice?! It gives the illusion that she has really narrow boobs! my god, this is just awful!

  26. Grace Patricia May 8, 2012 at 20:45 #

    It also looks tight!

  27. Dominique May 8, 2012 at 22:57 #

    I was so sad when I saw her… Tlda Swinton like (obviously not in a good way), and she looks a lot older! She can do a lot better!!

  28. Matt R May 8, 2012 at 23:24 #

    When I saw this picture, I got instant Deja Vu. It reminded me of Jennifer Lawrence’s flamenco dress from the 2011 Golden Globes, but this did nothing for Jessica. The makeup, I am sorry to say, ages her about 20 years. Had she worn the makeup she did for the Oscars this year, I might have liked the overall presentation more.

  29. Dhppy May 9, 2012 at 04:00 #

    Unless this actress is into bondage, I don’t understand why she keeps wearing dresses that grip her so mercilessly.

  30. Amanda May 9, 2012 at 06:42 #

    Another awful dress

  31. Parvati May 9, 2012 at 12:57 #

    She looks good, but this was one of the occasions where I didn’t like the dark lipstick. It does nothing for her.
