Jessica Chastain In Prada – 2017 Met Gala

Before taking her seat at the judges table alongside Fan Bingbing for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival in 15 days time, Jessica Chastain bestowed her regal charm on the 2017 Met Gala on Monday (May 1).

Part of the Prada posse, the actress donned a pale yellow chiffon plissé off-the-shoulder Elizabethan-style gown embellished with crystal embroidery.

It’s rare that I love two Prada gowns in a row, but this is such a beautifully romantic gown that it left me in awe.

Was this one of your favourites of the night?

    I don’t like this at all. It is all wrong , the dated Scarlett O’hara kind of silhouette and the color for her skin tone. Not even for other occasions. It is so conventionally pretty in every aspect of it that becames boring.
    I HATE this dress.

    I don’t care that it’s out of theme, it looks terrific on her. I am getting my hopes up for Cannes!

    I am so sad this was not saved for Cannes! It would’ve wowed me, but here it just looks like a bore! She looks gorgeous, but quoting Christine… C’mon!

    For another occasion, this is a lovely dress. However, for the met Ball, this is as boring as it gets. No link to the theme, Just forgettable. Have some fun Chastain!! Surprise us for once

    SHe looks great… if she was going to some other event. Not for the Met gala.

    she looks incredibly beautiful! but i agree with the other commenters she’s off theme so i can’t absolutely love it.

    Just like Elle Fanning, I think this is simply stunning.
    Lovely color.

    Glorious dress, but not on theme. And I feel like I can see loads of bronzer on her chest? Oddly distracting.

    Emma watson should have worn this dress to her beauty and beast promo tour,this gown screams belle to me.

    This is lovely and beautiful but she rarely sticks to the theme.

  11. Christine May 2, 2017 at 11:47 #

    So safe and boring for the MET Gala. Cmon now.

    On any other carpet, of course but c’mon

      “C’mon” lol. I was thinking the same thing. Jess needed to let go and get her freak on at this event.

    Like Chris, I’m kind of shocked this is a Prada.

    It’s a pretty look, but too safe. If you can’t go all out at the Met Gala, where can you?

  13. Iva May 2, 2017 at 09:51 #

    She should’ve saved this for Cannes.

  14. Chris May 2, 2017 at 08:32 #

    I’ve rarely seen such a well made Prada, she looks gorgeous.

  15. Pheephee May 2, 2017 at 07:08 #

    Its fine. Feels same old. Not saying its ugly or anything its not. She looks gorgeous for Cannes maybe? Idk. Just wishing for more.

  16. JHH May 2, 2017 at 05:54 #

    Jessica Chastain is one of those who ignores the theme year after year. This dress is pretty but not overwhelming me.

  17. Alina May 2, 2017 at 05:42 #

    She looks royally stunning. In love!

  18. Nat39 May 2, 2017 at 05:41 #

    Lovely at best. This is sweet deja vu and super safe for the occasion.

  19. Vallath May 2, 2017 at 05:41 #

    I LOVE Jessica Chastain as a person, actress and activist, but save this for another event love.

    This is the MET Gala, go crazy Jess.
