Jessica Chastain attended the ‘The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby’ photocall alongside co-star Jess Weixler during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Sunday (May 18) in Cannes, France following the premiere, which took place the night before.

The actress wore a sleeveless Alexander McQueen Fall 2014 velvet jacquard black dress etched with a leaf pattern.

It may not feel too summery, but those rainbow-hued pumps were the perfect pop of colour needed to enliven this chic, event-appropriate look.

Jessica Chastain In Atelier Versace – ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain In Atelier Versace - 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain attended the Cannes Film Festival premiere for ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’ this evening (May 17).

The actress wore a stunning Atelier Versace gown; what’s more, the colour was electric blue: my favourite.

Regular readers will not be surprised to hear that this ensemble left me completely breathless.

The bold colour was a great choice to stand out on the red carpet for a busy evening premiere, but also a great colour for Jessica’s skin tone.

Cut with an asymmetrical neckline and draped to perfection, this look is a non-negotiable on my BDOTY list.

She has never looked more radiant, and that is quite a feat considering she’s had many great moments.

Of course there was no clutch, just stunning jewels, matching Roger Vivier heels, perfect coiffed tresses à la Veronica Lake, and a beautiful red lip to match her polish.

Repeat after me: ‘We are not worthy’.

Jessica Chastain In Nina Ricci – 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Jessica Chastain In Nina Ricci - 2014 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Jessica Chastain enjoyed another night out on the red carpet at the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica.

The actress looked divine wearing a romantic Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2014 cypress green silk crepe gown with a lace yoke back which featured light ruffles.

Balancing feminine fancy with grown-up gumption, she completed the look with a part-braided do and orange lip shade.

Red heads and green gowns are always a winning combination for me. Does it work for you on this occasion?

Nail Trend Spotting: 2014 Golden Globes Moody Darks

Nail Trend Spotting 2014 Golden Globes Moody Darks

Dark polishes made their appearance during the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. And with manicures getting more and more coverage (hello, mani cams), nails are becoming a trend all on their own.

Taylor Schilling donned Essie’s Berry Naughty, a beautiful oxblood shade. Celebrity manicurist, Beth Fricke, wanted a color that would look gorgeous against her dark, kelly-green gown.

Celebrity manicurist Christina Aviles decided on a deep red to stand out against Jessica Chastain’s dark dress. Essie’s Poor Li’l Rich Girl was the perfect shade to complement.

Michelle Saunders, celebrity manicurist for Kate Beckinsale, went with what she thought was a bold choice for the red carpet. “But she pulled it off flawlessly,” says Michelle. The colour?

Essie’s Licorice, which gave off the effect of patent leather–the perfect addition to her metallic gown.

Have you been sporting the dark nail trend? If not, you’ve still a few weeks left before lights and pastels start making their rounds for spring.

Jessica Chastain In Givenchy – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Jessica Chastain made a radiant appearance on the red carpet of the 2014 Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles this evening (January 12).

The stunning star wore a custom Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci gown with intricate monochromatic detailing.

Jessica paired the dress with a beautiful diamond necklace and made the very unique but obviously thoughtful choice to forego earrings altogether.

Absolutely luminous skin, long lashes, and gorgeous red curls are the perfect beauty look for a big award show.

Jessica Chastain In Oscar de la Renta - 2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala

Jessica Chastain attended the 2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala held at Cipriani 42nd Street on Tuesday (January 7) in New York City.

I am delighted to see one of my favourites return to the red carpet, especially when she’s sporting such a refreshing bold hue.

She donned an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 citron silk-faille dress featuring an open neckline and draped detail from the hip, which she styled with the stunning lapis-blue-yellow-and-silver heeled ‘Kenzie’ pumps the model wore on the runway.

Opting to go clutch-free, as per, the actress completed her look with a high bouffant ponytail and a glossy red lip.

Ahna O’Reilly In Thakoon and Jessica Chastain In Emilio Pucci – Audi Celebrates The Holidays And Snow Polo In Aspen 2013

Ahna O'Reilly In Thakoon and Jessica Chastain In Emilio Pucci - Audi Celebrates The Holidays And Snow Polo In Aspen 2013

Ahna O’Reilly and Jessica Chastain attended the Audi Celebrates The Holidays And Snow Polo In Aspen 2013 event on Saturday (December 21) in Aspen, Colorado.

Ahna O’Reilly: The actress wore a Thakoon Fall 2013 dress featuring a drifting pattern of dandelions. The seductive, sheer lace panels, which put a daring twist on this ladylike frock, were snuffed out as the actress opted for a nude lining. Does this ruin the look for you? Bionda Castana heels and a simple updo completed the look.

Jessica Chastain: The actress chose a simpler look, wearing an Emilio Pucci long-sleeved frock with a sheer-lace-insert bodice and flared hem. Adding a bold red lip, she styled the look with gold glitter pumps and a wraparound gold bracelet.
