Jessica Chastain In Balenciaga – 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards

Jessica Chastain was pretty in pink at the 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards which took place in L.A. this evening.

The actress wore a pale pink column Balenciaga dress with an oversized cowl-neck neckline.

This detail makes the dress appear too big for her. So as much as I love the colour against her porcelain skin, I’m not in love with the fit.

Statement earrings and clutch would have made this look much more memorable.

The look was completed with a severe bun and simple sapphire earrings.

Jessica Chastain In Zac Posen – 2011 National Board Of Review Awards Gala

Jessica Chastain attended yet another event this week as the red carpet heats up ahead of awards season.

She was radiant at the National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City yesterday wearing a Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2011 dress.

The Chinoiserie embroidered dress was a much better look for her.

I love the dark rouge lip colour and the messy updo, but I’m not a fan of the thick strap sandals on this occasion.

Jessica Chastain In Lyn Devon – 2011 National Board Of Review Awards Gala

Jessica Chastain was also in attendance at the 2011 National Board of Review Awards gala on Tuesday evening.

She wore a silver Lyn Devon Spring 2012 dress with a classic A-line shape. The dress was minimally accessorized with a pair of jeweled silver Jimmy Choo ‘Linda’ sandals.

With straight locks, barely-there makeup and Harry Winston jewelry, this look is slghtly washed out.

Jessica could take a cue from her ‘The Help’ co-star, and fellow redhead, and add a bold lip colour to enhance her overall look.

Jessica Chastain In Prabal Gurung – 2012 Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala

Jessica Chastain received the ‘Spotlight Award’ at Saturday’s Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala for ‘The Help’.

The actress Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her hunter green geometric patchwork jacquard molded seam dress was paired with Cartier white-gold, black-onyx, and rubellite drop earrings, and a white-gold diamond Hypnose ring.

While this look has all my favourite elements for a glam look (redhead, emerald-green dress, red lips), it stills feels like there is something missing.

Perhaps a clutch?

Strappy black Jimmy Choo sandals complete the look.

This is the second Prabal Gurung dress to hit the red carpet this weekend.

Jessica Chastain In Viktor & Rolf – 2011 Marrakech Film Festival Closing Ceremony

I was wondering why Jessica Chastain was still at the 2011 Marrakech Film Festival, but it turns out she is a jury members for the event.

On Saturday night she attended the closing ceremony wearing a Viktor & Rolf Spring 2012 dress. This is our first look at this collection on the red carpet.

I love that the dress is not typical of what we’ve come to expect from Jessica, but the colour is.

This is the second time in a row she has opted for this peachy/nude colour and once again I believe it’s washing her out.

Had this dress been in the vivid blue hue of look 24, I think I would’ve loved this on Jessica.

The red haired actress didn’t wear any jewels as she just added Sergio Rossi ‘Boidea’ nude satin open toe pumps with Swarovski crystal embellishments.

A tight ponytail and dark pink lips completed her look.

Jessica Chastain In Louis Vuitton – ‘Another Happy Day’ Marrakech Film Festival

As much as I love Jessica Chastain, I find her red carpet style frustratingly inconsistent.

She has had some great red carpet moments, but this Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 dress which she wore to the Marrakech Film Festival premiere for ‘Another Happy Day’ is not one of them.

This peach colour is working against her skintone, as are those creased (despite being intentional) and that lopsided updo.

The only good thing about this look is that she didn’t opt for black pumps.

Only SJP has made good on this collection, Olivia Wilde and Cate Blanchett (forgive me) have failed to impress.

Jessica Chastain in Christian Dior – 2011 Marrakech International Film Festival 2011 Opening Ceremony

Jessica Chastain attended the opening ceremony of the Marrakech International Film Festival in Morocco on Friday night.

The actress wore a black and white Christian Dior Spring 2012 cocktail dress paired with black satin Roger Vivier ‘Sandalo Sport Chic’ sandals.

Between the spaghetti straps, ballerina shape and rose print, this dress seems far too young for Jessica.

Even the young runway model looks slightly out of place in the sweet dress.

We’d love to see a young star like Elle Fanning wearing this dress.

Jessica’s hair and makeup feel too harsh for this delicate look so thumbs down all round.

Who Wore Emilio Pucci Better? Jessica Chastain or Alexa Chung

Jessica Chastain was the first to don this black lace-sleeved velvet Emilio Pucci Fall 2011 dress with a white collar for the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala which took place at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art in New York City back in May.

The actress teamed the long-sleeve frock with a pair of simple black slingback Christian Louboutin heels and diamond drop earrings.

She styled her hair in a side swept updo, kohl rimmed eyes and a nude lip completed her look.

On Tuesday night, Alexa Chung wore the same dress to the Emilio Pucci new boutique launch at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City.

While the dress fits the gal’s personality (and style) more, she teamed the frock with chunky T-strap pumps that made her ensemble look too gothic.

As always, her barely there makeup and casual tresses completed her look.

This time around Jessica’s simple styling wins it for me.
