Jessica Chastain In Versace Collection – ‘Cleopatra’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain In Versace Collection - 'Cleopatra' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Jessica Chastain returned to Cannes Film Festival, taking to The 60th Anniversary Theatre this evening for the ‘Cleopatra’ premiere in France.

The red-haired beauty looked regal, wearing a Versace Collection gown which was fit for a Queen.

Her long-sleeved off-white silk gown, featuring a cape which trailed behind her into a dramatic train, was styled with a stunning sapphire sautoir and the trombino sapphire ring from the Elizabeth Taylor Bulgari collection.

Jessica is giving us a preview of the upcoming Versace Collection Spring/Summer 2014.

From this look it would appear this collection will focus less on the studs, cut-outs and slashed-to-the-thigh gowns the brand is known for, but we will have to wait and see.

Which Was Your Favourite Jessica Chastain 2013 Awards Season Look?

Jessica Chastain Awards Season

Jessica Chastain may have lost out to Jennifer Lawrence in the Best Actress in a Leading Role award, but fashion-wise she came out on top.

The ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ star started off her campaign wearing a Prada gown to the Critics’ Choice Awards. As we know, Prada don’t make the best gowns, but I loved the crimson colour and her effortless styling.

Her Calvin Klein look was by far my least favourite. It was the only dud in what was otherwise a perfect run.

Jessica’s Erdem dress was the best look at the Academy Luncheon. If I had to pick my favourite look overall it would come down to her Roland Mouret BAFTA gown and her Armani Prive gown at the Oscars.

The Roland Mouret gown was my favourite; as you know, I adore an electric-blue gown.

CR Fashion Book Issue 2 Cocktail Party

CR Fashion Book Issue 2 Cocktail Party

Carine Roitfeld launched the CR Fashion Book Issue 2 with a black-tie party held during Paris Fashion Week at the Hotel Shangri-La on Tuesday, to which she invited a host of celebs, including Kate Moss.

Jessica Chastain: The Oscar-nominated actress wore a black Givenchy Fall 2013 draped gown with sheer sleeves, which was accented with a thin black cable belt. The sleek look was styled with a gold clutch and coral lips.

Amanda Seyfried: The Givenchy-loving star wore a head-to-toe Givenchy look. Going against the all-black dress code, she added a light-blue lace blouse to her look, which consisted of a black leather and wool coat and black pencil skirt; she styled the look with Givenchy sandals and a Givenchy Rottweiler clutch.

Jessica Alba: The mum of two, who is becoming something of a front-row regular, followed the all-black rule to a T. Wearing a Valentino one-shoulder LBD with oversized velvet bows, she styled her look with black tights, black pumps and a black manicure. You would think those bows would be overwhelming, but I think Jessica makes this look work.

Paris Fashion Week Front Row Trend: Black and White

Black and White Celebrity Trend

What’s black and white and seated front row at Paris fashion week?

Celebs, of course.

One of the major trends which reigned supreme at the Spring 2013 shows was black and white, ranging from mod 60s looks at Prada and Louis Vuitton, stripes at Marc Jacobs, Dolce & Gabbana and Michael Kors, and classic pieces at Chanel, Ralph Lauren and Saint Laurent, with Alexander Wang, Balmain, Narciso Rodriguez, Victoria Beckham, Jil Sander, and Moschino also sending solid, patterned or striped black-and-white looks down the runway.

The celebs who have championed this trend this week were Nicole Richie, who attended both the Stella McCartney and Givenchy shows in black and white, and Jessica Alba, who also rocked the trend at Stella McCartney and Valentino.

Black and White Celebrity Trend2

Chanel’s front row is one place we shouldn’t be surprised to see celebs showcasing this Spring 2013 trend. The elegant Jessica Chastain wore a white ruffled blouse with a pencil skirt, while Milla Jovovich rocked a masculine black-and-white pant look.

Usually one to start trends, Anna Dello Russo also took to the front row at Chanel wearing a playful black-and-white look, which would’ve been better suited to Elle Fanning, methinks.

The best thing about this trend is that it’s easy to wear and affordable. You can rock it with the simplest staples, like vest tops, tees, skirts, pants and dresses.

Stripes might be the hardest look to rock; take it too far and you could end up looking like you are wearing prison stripes.

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.
