Jessica Chastain In Armani Privé – 2013 Oscars

2013Oscars_JessicaChastain

As one of the first stars on the 2013 Oscars red carpet, Jessica Chastain stunningly kick-started this evening at the Hollywood & Highland Center’s Dolby Theatre in California.

After her electric appearance in a cobalt blue Roland Mouret dress at the BAFTA Awards and a red Alexander McQueen design at the SAG Awards, the ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ nominee explored the other side of the colour spectrum today.

She wore a nude Armani Privé custom gown that screamed movie star.

This look unapologetically oozed old Hollywood glamour, especially with Jessica’s soft side-swept waves and her saturated ruby lip.

Normally with her fair skin tone and flame-red hair, this flesh-coloured, monotone palette could be problematic. But the subtle, sequin shimmer of the gown mixed with the bold lippie and the sparkle from Harry Winston diamond earrings and a ’60s-era Harry Winston bracelet pull it all together.

I’m glad she didn’t wear a necklace, though, as that would have cluttered the sweetheart neckline of this simply elegant gown.

    Have to agree with you about the necklace. I am so glad that she let the gown do the talking for her!!

    One of my favorites. She knocked it outta the park!

      Give me colour!!

        I dont like the fact the dress matches her hair color. I wish it was jewel tone.

        Love hair!

        I can’t bear nude dresses anymore.

        • Lashae February 25, 2013 at 05:28 #

          +3 I’m so over strapless dress like this one. This dress reminds me of the Anne Hathaway dress from the 2011 Golden Globes, just not strapless.

      I couldn’t have said it better!!!!

  4. Kathy February 25, 2013 at 00:36 #

    Love, love, love! This is how you do classic bombshell. I love that silhouette, and the color is flattering and actually doesn’t wash her out at all.

    • GGG February 25, 2013 at 19:15 #

      +1! My favorite of the night!

  5. Christine February 25, 2013 at 00:36 #

    Safe but so gorgeous. Love her makeup and hair. She looks amazing!

  6. Shifa February 25, 2013 at 00:37 #

    YES! I LOVE IT! She looks absolutely stunning and I don’t mind that she doesn’t have a clutch, in fact going clutch less enhances the look. Flawless. FC did you get the chance to see her in person?

  7. Ana Leote February 25, 2013 at 00:37 #

    She looks amazing!

  8. Angela February 25, 2013 at 00:39 #

    Pretty and safe. Color, fit, dress, makeup, are all good but not fantastic. I must say, FC’s look has got me the most excited thus far!

  9. judie February 25, 2013 at 00:41 #

    LOVE LOVE LOVE FROM HEAD TO TOE
    does anybody notice she never really has any other hairstyle than those side-swept locks?
    but who cares?! cuz she just rocks them sooooo well!!

  10. EmmaWoodhouse February 25, 2013 at 00:41 #

    It’s hard to not compare this to last year’s look. I’m happy to say that I’m wowed by both! This look is gorgeous, well fitted, and very Old Hollywood! Surprisingly it does not wash her out (although, not gonna lie–imagine this in emerald or royal blue?). Great look for Jessica. Glad she got it right!

  11. Nat39 February 25, 2013 at 00:41 #

    Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! The gown highlights her curves beautifully, the silhouette is amazing, her hair and makeup are gorgeous, she is sultry, subtle and seductive, pure beauty and gorgeousness, LOVE.

  12. shontay February 25, 2013 at 00:41 #

    Stunning! Her best look. The color is different and work perfectly on her with that beautiful red hair. She can work a red lip. This is the dress of a winner! *fingers crossed*

  13. Marybeth February 25, 2013 at 00:42 #

    She should have saved the blue Roland Mouret for the Oscars.
    This is elegant and nice enough.

    It’s certainly a beautiful dress, and she is, of course, beautiful. But I’m a bit disappointed. It blends so much with her skin tone and just makes her look all over pale to me. The bright red lip accentuates that impression. More color please?

  15. ramsay February 25, 2013 at 00:46 #

    I like it a lot – old hollywood glamour – but prefer last year’s look

  16. TL February 25, 2013 at 00:52 #

    She is pretty and elegant as always, and her hair and makeups are flawless, definitely, but same as others, I prefer her oscar dress from last year. There’s nothing new to be wowed at.

  17. Marina February 25, 2013 at 00:53 #

    Beautiful. So, so elegant. Just beautiful.

  18. moja31 February 25, 2013 at 00:59 #

    She looks gorgeous, but it feels like it’s always the same silhouette with her.

  19. Christopher Teoh February 25, 2013 at 01:02 #

    Oh My GOSH!!!!! Our favorite Best Actress nominee Jessica Chastain wows the crowd AGAIN in this strapless nude sequinned gown by Armani Prive!! Love how she forgo extra accessories to maken her stunning dress speak for itself!! Love the ruby red lip and the sultry waves that completes her old Hollywood glamour look!! BDOTW contender for Jessica Chastain is definitely back on track!!

  20. Faellie February 25, 2013 at 01:03 #

    An absolutely beautiful fit, and the subtle colour enhances her skin and hair to perfection.

  21. justme February 25, 2013 at 01:11 #

    She’s perfection from the neck up.
    It’s not that I don’t like the dress but it’s safe and I really hoped she would wear some colour tonight.

    A bit disappointed.

  22. Elise February 25, 2013 at 01:28 #

    She looks beautiful, I like the design of the gown, but that color should be changed by a bold one. that nude, beige or whatever is called is ugly

  23. Mol February 25, 2013 at 01:28 #

    My favorite so far, love the bronze undertone, it suits her coloring spectacularly well

  24. Nadia February 25, 2013 at 01:29 #

    At first glance I was a bit disappointed by an other nude strapless gown. But I’ve come to really love the look. Hair & make up are flowless and the fitting of the dress is perfect. The subtle details on the dress and the shine makes it special. Jessica does hollywood glamour like no one else. Glad she stuck to her own style.

  25. Mol February 25, 2013 at 01:34 #

    My favorite tonight, the bronze undertone works so beautifully with her coloring, and her minimalist presentation is spot on – much love!

  26. TeaAtTwo February 25, 2013 at 01:34 #

    She does look very beautiful but the Roland Mouret Bafta dress was more of a wow moment.

  27. ANDREA February 25, 2013 at 01:37 #

    THE best dressed of the night for sure!!

  28. CreoleLady February 25, 2013 at 01:57 #

    This dress is NOT nude, it is copper. I saw it live and heard Chastain’s explanation of the exquisite detail of this superb Armani Prive creation. That beautiful color is a stunning complement to her hair. My best dressed so far.

  29. MaddyEliza February 25, 2013 at 02:04 #

    I wish she had opted for a jewel-tone gown, but she still looks beautiful. I like this look and I love Armani Privé.

  30. J February 25, 2013 at 02:19 #

    This has grown on me. The copper is actually quite a unique colour and she looks flawless.

  31. Fromchi-town February 25, 2013 at 03:07 #

    I love it… She oozes glamor and yet looks elegant. It is a predictable gown, but it looks great on her.

  32. Moxie February 25, 2013 at 03:58 #

    One of my best dressed of the night.

  33. Yeliz February 25, 2013 at 04:27 #

    A very safe look indeed, but SO stunning! A well-fitted gown and flawless hair and makeup makes me love this look a lot. Definitely on the best dressed list.

  34. DM February 25, 2013 at 04:40 #

    I agree with others who say they are over the muted color trend. But this look is pretty good, I have to say: the super-strong red lip prevents it from looking washed out. The dress itself is really pretty and fits her well, thankfully not sitting too low on the chest. It’s a thumbs-up for me!

  35. RW February 25, 2013 at 04:50 #

    Looks good/on trend and reminds me of another Jessica. Jessica rabbit that is!

  36. the ogre February 25, 2013 at 05:35 #

    i just don’t know. yes, she looks beautiful but for me it was nothing special like what she did last year. last year was electrifying. this reminds me of something anne hathaway wore before at the oscars and that was armani prive too if i remember correctly. i expected so much more from her but she’s glowing nevertheless.

  37. Aline February 25, 2013 at 06:13 #

    I thought it looked super boring on TV but it somehow looks even more blah on pictures.

    Last year’s McQueen was so much better *le sigh*

  38. ISIK MATER February 25, 2013 at 07:27 #

    Love the hair, love the dress, hate the color of the dress! and obviously she needs a necklace.

  39. leigh February 25, 2013 at 07:58 #

    I keep waiting for her to wear that amazing sequined green tiered armani prive gown from a few season ago.

  40. manja February 25, 2013 at 08:58 #

    The best look of the evening for me… But no matter how beautiful JC is and how classic old Holywood glamour never goes out of style,can’t help not being a little disappointed by the whole red carpet this year…

  41. Noemi February 25, 2013 at 09:43 #

    The dress is beautiful but washes her out, so far, I think it’s been one of most boring Oscars red carpet.

  42. dee February 25, 2013 at 14:11 #

    Gorgeous, one of my standouts of the night.

  43. Layla February 25, 2013 at 15:11 #

    Best dressed by far.

  44. Gabby M February 25, 2013 at 15:47 #

    Well since you didnt actually show a picture of my best dressed, this will have to be best dressed! My best dressed, was this lady I dont even know, but EVERYTHING about her styling was on point, Maria Menounos in Romona Keveza, look her up if you didnt see, its was awesome!

  45. Alina February 25, 2013 at 16:11 #

    My favourite of the night. Simple, elegant, timeless.

  46. Camille February 25, 2013 at 16:19 #

    Jessica can be hit or miss on the red carpet. I think this look is a hit! Everyone keeps calling this a nude dress, but to me it has a bronzy tone. I think it is a perfect compliment to her coloring, echoing the tone of her gorgeous hair, which for once is styled beautifully! I only wish she had pulled some of that beautiful hair over one shoulder. Definitely old hollywood glam done well! One of my best dressed of the evening.

  47. LondonGirl February 25, 2013 at 16:26 #

    Absolutely gorgeous! I love the understated glamour. I prefer this on her than the blue at the BAFTAS. Top five best dressed for me for sure!

  48. Pri February 25, 2013 at 16:28 #

    FC, didn’t Aishwarya Rai wear this gown (in a darker, copper colour) to the Oscars a year or two ago?? If not, both gowns look very similar.

  49. Parvati February 25, 2013 at 16:35 #

    She looks great, but I wish she had opted for a brighter colour.

  50. Sterling Silver February 25, 2013 at 16:51 #

    Best dressed of the night. Perfection from head to toe.

  51. Stel February 25, 2013 at 18:46 #

    Really beautiful.. Like a fairy..

  52. Jane February 25, 2013 at 20:33 #

    Understated gorgeousness, perfect, wouldn’t change a thing. Such a relief, given the disaster she wore to the GG’s. Had chosen her for my best-dressed until I saw Stacy Kiebler’s stunning gown.

  53. Liz February 26, 2013 at 00:42 #

    Gorgeous! Sex BOMB! So glamorous!

  54. Prian February 26, 2013 at 12:15 #

    serving up jessica rabbit !

    I think the colors actually complement her skin tone, this is how you do ‘nudes’for the pale skin creatures

  55. Jess2 March 1, 2013 at 14:41 #

    Movie Star! Absolutely flawless! I am so in love.
