Jessica Chastain In Erdem – 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon

Jessica Chastain Erdem

Jessica Chastain was no wallflower when she took to the red carpet at the 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon on Monday, held at The Beverly Hilton in California.

The ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ actress plucked out a vibrant sheath dress from Erdem’s Resort 2013 offering.

With its simple silhouette, the main impact of this midnight navy design was the intricate texture of the bright rose and dusty blue floral embroidery and the sheer lace sleeves.

Luncheon-like and lady-like, the look was finished with a pair of nude, pointy Christian Louboutins that faded into the background—not nearly as bold as the model’s shoe.

Jessica wore her flame-red locks long and curled, and she matched a pink lippie to those petals on her dress.

She’s not the only star who has lately been channeling the flower power of Erdem. Anne Hathaway recently wore a look from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection, as did Marion Cotillard—twice, in fact.

    The sleeves are what make this look interesting.

    Wow! I love this! Beautiful dress. Looks just lovely on her. Love the matching pink lipstick.

    Aside from the boring shoes (navy would have been preferred if she wanted to go with a simple pump) this was my favorite look of the event. I love the Erdem dress, it’s perfect for Jessica and has none of her usual fit issues. Glad to see her looking her beautiful best.

    Gorgeous from the ankles up. Why oh why did she wear nude pumps?

    Love… I think it is a perfect look for a luncheon. And she is glowing in that color! But her shoes are a let down!!

    This is my favorite look of hers thus far. I actually quite like the shoes here, because I feel like they allow the dress to stand out more!

    Love love love! Glad more and more people have been wearing the gorgeous Erdem prints lately. Jessica’s hair and makeup are perfection. I’m going to ignore the somewhat questionable shoe choice bc I love the rest.

    Beautiful dress, classy without being boring!

    I am obsessed with Jessica Chastain, her performance in ZDT is really amazing. But every time I saw her on the red carpet, I felt like there is something missing. Not the clutch. But that “spark” that makes her appearance special- like her acting. I do want her to be a bit edgier and more experimental. Hopefully she can be our next Queen Blanchett.

    Love the pattern, not crazy about the sleeves.

    Lovely. This is the first look I’ve liked for her in a while (pre GG). The pink color is so complimentary with her hair and tone. Love the flowers, they are so refreshing!! I love a feminine look every time.

    Even though the shoes aren’t the best choice, Jessica was still my best dressed of this event. I love the dress, her hair and makeup.

      She is my best dressed too in this event, even with an uninspiring shoe choice.

      Adore the dress and its beautiful prints , even the length is perfect on her! And great she kept the make up natural.

    Gorgeous but wished she wore the look book shoes.

    Ugh, I want a moratorium on nude pumps.
