Jessica Chastain In Prada – 2017 amfAR Gala Cannes

Jessica Chastain looked lovely wearing Prada to the amfAR Gala Cannes, held on Thursday (May 25) during the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

While this dress has a lovely cut and fits beautifully, it is clearly worn to be just a backdrop for the central piece here, the necklace.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a backward necklace on a major red carpet, and since I’m a fan of the trend, I’m thrilled to see it.

The styling is also rather inspired here, because the pearls, tassel and rose-detailing of this Piaget necklace are neither fashion-forward or particularly noteworthy on their own, but by simply turning the piece around, it has a very special red carpet moment all to itself.

With so little happening head-on, Jessica’s makeup was particularly important, and her brown smokey eye and pink glossy lip were the perfect choice to add some interest to all those front-facing photos.

    The back is better than the front

    I feel she’s pulled this black simple gown with interesting details many times on us now. But that’s not to say that it doesn’t work.

    Love the duality — society lady turns temptress. This is how you can leave your fans wanting more as well as elevate a brand that is not always a red carpet sure thing.

    Love this. Class and elegance. She looks beautiful.

    Classy, beautiful and elegant. That necklace is just stunning!! From the front it might be a bit boring but it looks fab from the back.

    I wish this had been in another colour.

    From the back, stunning.

    I think I would’ve liked this better had the dress been navy or emerald.

      The more I look at it, the more I like it. Simple, classy and timeless.

    The necklace is spectacular!! It totally makes the look along with Jessica’s refined presence and beauty, the dress itself would’ve been a bit too boring otherwise.

    As great as the back of this is, it doesn’t save the front. matronly and uninspiring.

    She looks elegant but sort of boring

    This is the only one I LOVE at this event. Jessica brought some much needed class to this event. Yes, it’s a rather simple look, but Jessica proves that when done right, it doesn’t need more than a classic black gown to look stunning. This is executed to perfection. I love the necklace and her beauty look is epic.
    Also, I knew that since she’s a Prada ambassador, she’d wear Prada at some point during Cannes and I’m happy this is it (I can barely believe this is Prada, it’s that good).
