Jessica Chastain In Calvin Klein – 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Jessia Chastain in Calvin Klein - 2013 Golden Globe AwardsJessica Chastain smiled brightly on the 2013 Golden Globe Awards red carpet at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

Nominated for Best Actress in ‘Zero Dark Thirty,’ she opted for a lighter moment from all-American designer Calvin Klein.

In what can only be described as sea-foam, the watery shade of her backless halter gown was pretty, as were her sparkling Harry Winston jewels.

But the silhouette of the dress was less impressive. The revealing bodice seemed a bit ill-fitting and not so figure-flattering.

Her flame-red hair will forever be a gorgeous color (especially with any shade of blue or green), but I wasn’t crazy about the severe style, slicked back at the crown of her head.

    Did your see her SHOES? 2 bricks, that’s all. Maybe she was trying to work the Geisha style.

    from afar this looked really pretty, but then once you see the front close up you realize that bodice has some issues. I just want to pull up the halter straps so it can be more fitted. the hair is also very alien like and it ages her. Honestly, she has never impressed me.

    Horrible dress, horrible color,

    Skin and hair like that—WHO CARES!!!

    She’s such a good actress, it’s a pity that her stylist couldn’t think beyond the color of the dress. I think this color perfectly suited her hair color but the hairstyle and saggy fit killed the look. Girls! here’s hoping she won’t sag at the SAG 🙂

  6. ABC January 14, 2013 at 17:06 #

    I love this color, especially on her, but the fit is off and the hairstyle is wrong. She’s so amazing, I know she can do better!

  7. Jess2 January 14, 2013 at 14:33 #

    I am so sad right now! Our street style queen of late has bombed. I love the colour and her makeup is really pretty but the neckline and fit around the bust, as well as the hair style is just so bad 🙁 please please please let her shine at the SAG and Oscars, fingers crossed!

  8. Anne January 14, 2013 at 13:53 #

    This look made me sad. Her amazing red locks are verging on a Young Frankenstein look and that dress is so unflattering.

  9. Fundaos January 14, 2013 at 12:59 #

    I love the dress and its colour against her skin tone.the makeup was beautiful too.The hair I have to agree is a complete disaster.

  10. Ysatis January 14, 2013 at 12:29 #

    WOW the hairdo is shocking.

  11. Neli January 14, 2013 at 11:35 #

    Her dress just looks super awkward

  12. Jai January 14, 2013 at 08:50 #

    The hair is awful here. And the top half of the dress doesn’t work, which is such a shame, as with this colour, and the simple silhouette, I think it could have been a stunner.

  13. the ogre January 14, 2013 at 08:02 #

    i am sad. i am like oh so sad. she’s one of my favourites and she had such a great week! great actress! beauty personified! electrifying smile! lovely color! great jewels too! crazy hair and make up and a very unflattering fit! the last two bring it down completely but even then she doesn’t come close to halle berry for being worst-dressed.

  14. justme January 14, 2013 at 07:47 #

    My biggest disappointment of the night.
    She can do better, way better than this.

  15. Dhppy January 14, 2013 at 06:04 #

    Her hair looked much better on TV. The dress however, gave boob sag. Never good.

  16. T from Sydney January 14, 2013 at 05:15 #

    I adore the colour but the dress is SO unflattering.

    The way the top hangs it looks like she has saggy boobies.

    • noo January 14, 2013 at 05:37 #

      Yes it does… Such a shame!

  17. Rebecca Z January 14, 2013 at 04:54 #

    She didn’t look good–hate the hair, the dress is not flattering beyond the color, but she had great things to say from the stage.

  18. pipsqueak January 14, 2013 at 04:43 #

    This gown was so bland. The hair was weird, as though she was from the future. It also made me think of McQueen’s Spring 2010 show – the sea creature collection, where hair was styled in a similarly strange and symmetrical way. This look is in my bottom 5.

  19. ash January 14, 2013 at 04:41 #

    i like the back of this dress more.

  20. Cindy January 14, 2013 at 04:38 #

    This is so awful. There is nothing left to say that wasn’t already said above. Tragic!

  21. EmmaWoodhouse January 14, 2013 at 04:26 #

    Le sigh. I love the color on her. I love her. But this…ugly cut, too revealing (come on, it’s down to her waist!) and the hair is not good either. I am sad. 🙁

  22. Ella January 14, 2013 at 03:13 #

    Hate the bodice. WAY too ill fitting. And I’m not crazy about her hair other. This is a disappointment to me.

    Maybe she should stick to street style

  23. ash January 14, 2013 at 03:11 #

    I cannot believe how bad she looks, her dress makes her look like she has droopy boobs. And her hair! She looks like she’s balding!

  24. Cooltweens January 14, 2013 at 03:01 #

    When I first saw her walking down the red carpet, it looked like she tied a giant bib bunched up around “sagging” boobs. I’ll give her hair and makeup a pass because the dress is such a mess that I don’t think the better hair or makeup could have rescued her “look”.

  25. moja31 January 14, 2013 at 02:54 #

    I thought this was terrible, but then again i find most of her looks to be underwhelming, often bordering on awful. her style generally leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion. the hair might be the worst part.

  26. Marybeth January 14, 2013 at 02:54 #

    Oh no.
    The biggest disappointment out of many disappointments tonight.

  27. Fiona - Perth January 14, 2013 at 02:46 #

    Agree about the hair – odd style, it makes her look like her hair is getting thin so not so flattering. Love the colour on her though.

  28. Moxie January 14, 2013 at 02:44 #

    Definitely disappointing. The saggy dress, the slicked back hair… One of the worst of the night.

  29. aiyu January 14, 2013 at 02:42 #

    Oh dear, where shall we start?
    Hair and makeup – such a severe hairstyle, it make her look like she’s half bald at the crown, and her eyebrows are almost non existence.
    Dress – other than the colour, there’s nothing nice to say about the dress. It makes her look like her boobs are at her waist.

  30. Natalie19 January 14, 2013 at 02:42 #

    I love the makeup here!!!

    And actually i also think that the color of the dress suits her.

  31. Vicky January 14, 2013 at 02:40 #

    Jessica is my least favorite of the night. Completely disappointing.

  32. roxy January 14, 2013 at 02:40 #

    ITA never thought it wud happen

  33. rebecca o January 14, 2013 at 02:39 #

    Agreed. Too severe hair and a very unflattering bodice.

    • Tracy L January 14, 2013 at 13:27 #


  34. Tahlia January 14, 2013 at 02:39 #

    Easily my pick for worst dressed of the night.. Halle Berry did come close though!

    • MissAmynae January 14, 2013 at 06:58 #

      oh god, halle trying-way-too-hard berry was just awful. To quote my husband- “wow, she’s pretty but that is just not aesthetically pleasing.”

  35. Angela January 14, 2013 at 02:39 #

    No. This entire look is so matronly. The hair is extremely aging, the dress is very loose and does no justice for her frame. Also, I’m not loving the lip color.

  36. Luiza January 14, 2013 at 02:38 #

    My best dressed of the night.

  37. msd January 14, 2013 at 02:37 #

    Yikes, the hair is awful. It ruins the look for me. She looks like what happens when old ladies lose their hair. It’s going to happen to all of us eventually but not at 35!

  38. Anderbobo January 14, 2013 at 02:36 #

    Another miss. Very droopy looking and that hair is making her look balding. The color is nice though.

  39. Tea January 14, 2013 at 02:36 #

    Agreed on everything. Pretty shade, unflattering style, slightly scary hair. Such a shame when we know it’s such a missed opportunity.

    • Yeliz January 14, 2013 at 07:01 #

      I agree. And it’s sad, because she had such good looks this week. I thought she will be amazing at the Globes, but she is not.

    • Foteini P. January 14, 2013 at 10:29 #


  40. Christine January 14, 2013 at 02:35 #

    She is gorgeous and I like her hair but this is nto a good dress.

    • Christine January 14, 2013 at 02:36 #

      Waiting for a wow moment from her.

  41. AW January 14, 2013 at 02:32 #

    The dress is bad, the hair is worse. What stylist on the planet wants their client to look like their balding?

    She is so much better than this, she should fire her team.

    • Tea January 14, 2013 at 06:38 #

      I cannot get over the hair! The idea that a professional hairstylist did her hair, looked at their work and then let her walk out there to be photographed and on television defies comprehension.

      And I’m still trying to figure out what that effect is??? In close up on television it looked like she had half an inch of pale roots showing but I still don’t get how that happened!

      I guess this is the very definition of a bad hair day.

    • MissAmynae January 14, 2013 at 06:56 #

      +1 times ten.

      looked even worse on screen- makeup was really harsh.

    • Noemi (WBiS) January 14, 2013 at 09:00 #

      My thought, too. I don’t understand this ugly look, the hair is terrible and the dress also unflattering. I only save her beautiful face.

    • dee January 14, 2013 at 13:39 #

      I agree.

  42. Emma January 14, 2013 at 02:29 #

    She is such an incredibly beautiful woman, and I don’t quite understand how she can look this bad. The dress is boring, old, and ill-fitting, and this style does no justice to her amazing hair. What a letdown – I hope she gets it together for the Oscars!

    • Alina January 14, 2013 at 15:15 #


      She has such an unique beauty! I don’t get how her stylist has problems to dress her in something flattering.
