Jessica Chastain In Chanel Couture - An Evening Honoring Karl Lagerfeld

Jessica Chastain attended An Evening Honoring Karl Lagerfeld held at Alice Tully Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

She could’ve worn Fendi, or Karl’s ready-to-wear line, but instead she wore the brand he is most known for: Chanel.

Selecting a look from the Fall 2013 Couture collection, the black-and-white tweed dress with an A-line skirt features white beads, grey sequins and origami effect flowers on the sleeves and skirt.

Usually my love for a Jessica Chastain look is instant, but I find myself feeling like this backless dress is a tad too twee for the actress and I am not a fan of the accessories either.

On the plus side, her makeup is flawless and I love the braided updo.
