Jessica Chastain In Roland Mouret – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Jessica Chastain In Roland Mouret - 2013 BAFTA AwardsFeeling the blues (in the best way possible), Jessica Chastain made sartorial magic on the red carpet of the 2013 BAFTA Awards on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London, England.

The ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ star and Leading Actress nominee completely blew me away in her breathtaking sapphire gown by Roland Mouret.

Where to even begin? The colour was electric. The fit was impeccable. And the structured architecture of the asymmetrical bodice was fresh and altogether sublime.

Even in an evening where umbrellas proved to be the best (and most popular) accessory, Jessica shone brightly.

Complementary Harry Winston pendant earrings and a simple bracelet didn’t impede the dramatic effect of the gown.

Once again, Jessica’s side-swept, flame-red waves and matte crimson lip were picture perfect, especially with the blue.

    I’m so pleased she learned from the poor fit of her SAG dress! This is exquisite, it all works.

      She look beyond amazing. THIS is her color. BDOTY possibly.

      • Christine February 10, 2013 at 21:44 #

        This is BDOTW worthy gorgeous. Love this look so much!! Proud of her. 😀 The color is heaven

  2. Elise February 10, 2013 at 20:58 #

    She looks flawless!

  3. Aline February 10, 2013 at 20:58 #

    She blew me away as well. This is just perfection.

    • GGG February 11, 2013 at 00:15 #

      I agree – perfection is the best word for this look. I cannot wait to see what she does at the Oscars this year, to top this!

  4. ash February 10, 2013 at 20:58 #

    stunning!! She looks really amazing in royal blue. Love this look so much.

  5. amparo February 10, 2013 at 21:00 #

    I am really tired of that hair. Please, more imagination!!!

    • Cookie February 11, 2013 at 00:14 #

      She’s Jessica Chastain, not Rihanna. And she looks incredible!

  6. Shelby February 10, 2013 at 21:00 #

    She’s definitely a breath of fresh air! Everything about this look is spot on!

  7. Grace Patricia February 10, 2013 at 21:00 #

    She couldn’t be better! Best dressed till now.

  8. robbie February 10, 2013 at 21:03 #

    she looks fantastic, only wish she had her hair going down the other shoulder to show off the shoulder detail being hidden.

    • Cole February 11, 2013 at 03:37 #


  9. Luiza M. February 10, 2013 at 21:04 #

    Perfection. I just wish her hair was on the other side.

  10. Thomas February 10, 2013 at 21:05 #

    wait Jessica carried a clutch?!?!?! Pics or it didn’t happen X-P

  11. Yeliz February 10, 2013 at 21:07 #

    She looks breathtaking, I am in love. The colour is divine on her and the overall look is simply perfect. I think she is my best dressed of the event.

  12. Nat39 February 10, 2013 at 21:08 #

    Gorgeous colour and structure, usually prefer hair pulled back with interesting structured necklines like this, but her red waves are so pretty and add so much charm to the look, it all works nicely for me, would like to see that clutch, I’m missing it here.

  13. Kate February 10, 2013 at 21:09 #

    I think I like this better than ANYONE’s look from SAG or the Golden Globes. It’s striking, well-executed, and memorable.
    Can’t wait to see what she wears to the Oscars.
    But wait…I don’t see a clutch! What did it look like?

  14. Kate February 10, 2013 at 21:10 #

    Psst…note to Anne Hathaway: THIS is how you do awards ceremony fashion.

  15. Neli February 10, 2013 at 21:11 #


  16. TeaAtTwo February 10, 2013 at 21:11 #

    Definitely one of the best dressed of the night and one of her best looks ever. Can’t see the shoes but there’s nothing to complain about here. She didn’t even need a clutch.

  17. Lyo February 10, 2013 at 21:12 #

    Am I mistaken or this looks a lot like your Oscar’s future gown?
    Anyway, great dress and great color on her. Love the lips, but her eyebrows seems a little faded? Or maybe it’s because of the flashes.

    • Marie February 11, 2013 at 02:33 #

      +1, the fit of her dress instantly reminded of FC’s gown for the Oscars.
      Jessica looks good though, great fit and great colour.

  18. Joy February 10, 2013 at 21:19 #

    Wow!! I’m speechless. This dress couldn’t be more beautiful. Love!!!!

  19. Sanette February 10, 2013 at 21:25 #

    Wow, this is the best she’s looked in a long while. Finally a dress that fits her. Just stunning. I love her makeup as well.

  20. CreoleLady February 10, 2013 at 21:30 #

    The only thing wrong with this look is that this is the dress I wanted to see FC in. Superb in every other way.

    • Cole February 11, 2013 at 03:37 #

      I agree!

    • crack February 11, 2013 at 09:00 #

      I came here to same say the same thing…this is what i imagined FC wearing when she first told us about her Oscar gowm…

    • Moxie February 11, 2013 at 15:32 #

      Couldn’t agree more!

  21. Pati February 10, 2013 at 21:32 #

    Love Love Love!!! Stunning! Yay!

  22. Marybeth February 10, 2013 at 21:42 #


  23. Anne February 10, 2013 at 21:43 #

    Love the color, silhouette, fit, hair & makeup. H2T love!

  24. EmmaWoodhouse February 10, 2013 at 21:47 #

    HOLY FASHION PERFECTION! I can only say “Yes, yes YES!” to this flawless look. After fit issues, color issues, everything being just a little off each time, I’m SO glad to see Jessica knock it out of the ballpark with this STUNNING look. The gown is absolute perfection–great fit, great sheen, amazing color. Her rich red hair is lovely (I would have tossed it over the OTHER shoulder, but oh well) and she is glowing. BDOTN (best dressed of the night) and a seriously major BDOTW contender. Really a great look.

  25. Kathy February 10, 2013 at 21:49 #

    I’m completely blown away. Best she’s ever looked, if you ask me. I can’t find a single fault with this, and that’s very, very rare.

  26. Jai February 10, 2013 at 21:49 #

    The colour is stunning, and the fit is fabulous, but somehow the fabric with that sheen feels a little awards show-y. She does always do her hair like that too. Still – a good look.

  27. Prudence February 10, 2013 at 22:10 #


  28. Natalie19 February 10, 2013 at 23:03 #

    In my top 3 best dressed of the night

  29. Ericka February 10, 2013 at 23:09 #

    Jaw dropping. This is how it is done. BDOTY!

  30. ramsay February 10, 2013 at 23:31 #

    Oh that bracelet is to die for – Her dress is good – Her hair has looked better (on a number of events this week) – I am not floored, but I think she looks good – her choice of designers has proven to be quite eclectic, I have the hardest time predicting what she will be wearing on February 24th

  31. rebecca o February 11, 2013 at 00:03 #

    I feel like I’ve seen this dress a million times before. And I’m tired of her swept to the side hair style, she needs to do something new with her hair.

  32. Tatiana February 11, 2013 at 00:22 #

    I totally love this look from head to toe. It is perfection. One of my favorites of this year, alongside the red Armani Prive of Cate Blanchett and the Giles gown of Kerry Washington.

  33. Paulo February 11, 2013 at 01:07 #

    Now this is THE fashion moment I’ve been waiting for from Jessica! Gorgeous!

  34. SS February 11, 2013 at 01:41 #

    This has to be the best that Jessica has looked this awards season. That color is beautiful on her.

  35. Amy February 11, 2013 at 01:56 #

    the color is everything. Best dressed for sure

  36. bb February 11, 2013 at 03:44 #

    OMG Stunnnnning!

    Love love love everything about this look. She looks damn gorgeous in this. WOW

  37. Imperfectionist February 11, 2013 at 04:40 #

    How perfect did she look? On top, she only arrived in london like an hour before the show. Girl needs no rest i swear.

  38. Pene February 11, 2013 at 06:53 #

    Best use of colour

  39. the ogre February 11, 2013 at 08:39 #

    yay! i’m doing a jig right now! i am SO happy! color cut perfection! those tumbling waves act like an accessory so no wonder she didn’t add jewelry that would have probably messed with the overall effect. i love this woman!

  40. Noemi (WBiS) February 11, 2013 at 09:23 #

    Wow, the color is gorgeous, so it’s the dress, which fits her perfectly. Love the red lipstick and the hair. Perfect.

  41. Christopher Teoh Jing Xiang February 11, 2013 at 10:57 #

    God Damn Flawless!! Jessica Chastain blows our blues away in this striking royal blue figure hugging gown by Roland Mouret!! Love the side swept glossy waves and the red lip is so gorgeous!! Nothing to change right here, damn too hot!! BDOTY contender for Jessica Chastain!! Anne Hathaway, shame on you!!

  42. Beta February 11, 2013 at 11:09 #

    Im floored on how amazing she looks!!
    Even if the shape is familiar, the colour, the fabric and the fit add up to Jessica’s natural beauty. My favourite Bafta’s

  43. Dolly February 11, 2013 at 12:56 #

    Perfection! I am speechless!

  44. Alina February 11, 2013 at 13:02 #

    WOW! BDOTY contender.

  45. Jess2 February 11, 2013 at 13:13 #

    Absolute perfection! There isn’t a word worthy enough to describe this amazing look. I call BDOTY!

    I still can’t believe that this is the same girl who had more misses that hits in 2011, my how far she has come! So thrilled 😀

  46. jones19 February 11, 2013 at 15:42 #

    Jewel tones are perfect for her! Love this!

  47. DANA February 11, 2013 at 16:33 #

    i think this is A TOTAL SNOOZE. HELLO 1992.COME ON people. she needs a new stylist! AND QUICK

  48. Glenda February 11, 2013 at 19:04 #

    If there was on Oscar for ‘Best Leading Actress Awards Season Red Carpet Run’ (Now there’s an idea… Though they might have to give it a slightly flashier name), Jessica would totally win it. And deservedly so!

  49. rausine February 11, 2013 at 21:52 #

    it is simply electric. most of the color chosen for this occasion out of the ordinary. we got used to seeing black or white or red. it innovates.

  50. rausine February 11, 2013 at 21:59 #

    it is simply electrique.le blue suits him perfectly and leaves a bit of comun because we have long been accustomed to the black white and red. I love the asymmetrical cut bustier that gives any look at all.

  51. Parvati February 12, 2013 at 00:53 #

    This is a fantastic look for Jessica! The colour and the silhouette are perfect! I also really like the simple, matching bracelet.
