Style Star: Jessica Chastain
While Jessica Chastain’s character, Celia Foote, was ridiculed in “The Help” for her promiscuous outfits, Jessica tends to steer clear of outrageous choices when it comes to red-carpet fashion, opting instead for more sophisticated looks. She loves cinched waists, long gowns, and bold colors ranging from bright orange to dark, cobalt blue. Here are some of our favorite style picks from Ms. Chastain and pieces that will help you get her looks.
Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain is casual-chic strolling through the streets of Paris in a pale blue coat, skinny jeans, and teal booties. The dapper boyfriend complements her look nicely, too, but we'll try to focus on her shoes! With these teal ankle boots, you can easily get Chastain's casual style. Pair them with dark skinny jeans and a tee this season!
Paris Fashion Week, 2013
Sleek and stylish was the name of Chastain's game for Paris Fashion Week. The actress was spotted at the Louis Vuitton show in tailored black shorts, a black jacket, and peep-toe pumps. Her pretty purple handbag can be found in the dictionary under "pop of color." Crushing on Chastain's standout accessory? Then it's time for your own bright bucket bag! And we found the perfect one—this shoulder bag is a great shade of sapphire blue. Wear it with a monochrome outfit, like Chastain, or pair it with a floral dress for a different look!
British Academy Film Awards, 2013
Among all the glitz and glamour of the British Academy Film Awards, Jessica Chastain looked simply regal in a sapphire blue Roland Mouret dress and bold red lipstick. She knows the easiest way to glam up your look isn’t with a pair of shoes or flashy accessory—it’s with a swipe of bold lipstick. Get Chastain’s red pout with this perfect shade of red lipstick!
Walter Kerr Theater in New York City, 2012
We're sensing a pattern here! Chastain seems to be a fan of a sleek black outfit and colorful handbag. "The Heiress" star was spotted arriving for her performance in this simple, trendy outfit that reminds us of the similar look she rocked in Paris. Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right? This emerald green satchel is a fresher, trendier version of Chastain’s cool green handbag. We love the sweet scalloped edges and functional top handle. Carry it with an all-black outfit to recreate the style star’s look or with a cute white dress.
“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” in New York City, 2013
Chastain was getting ahead of the ruffle trend back in January when she stopped by the "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" show in this chic turquoise ruffle dress. She expertly paired the bold hue with a crisp white coat and neutral heels. Get Chastain's chic style with this blue ruffle dress. It’s the perfect dress to take from day to night! Wear it to the office with minimal accessories and then with strappy sandals and a statement necklace later on.
The Shops At Target Fall Launch Party in New York City, 2012
Jessica Chastain attended a party to launch the fall installment of Target's popular The Shops at Target line, which basically means she shops there, too, and is just like you. Maybe you don’t shop at Target in a textured blue skater skirt and peep-toe heels, but that doesn’t mean you can’t copy her look! Chastain's outfit is the perfect example of how this flirty blue skater skirt can be styled conservatively. Another cute way to wear it is with a striped tee and sandals!
“Live! with Kelly” in New York City, 2012
In one of our favorite looks, Chastain posed in a daring cutout black peplum top with voluminous high-waist navy shorts, worn for an appearance on "Live! with Kelly." This lace peplum top is similar to Chastain’s—add a detachable collar if you want to get it exactly right!
Cannes Film Festival, 2012
Chastain isn't afraid to rock a bold red dress with her beautiful red hair, and we are loving how she looks! The style star cinched her waist with a matching wide belt and kept her accessories to a minimum. Neutral pumps elongate her legs—important because of where the dress hits her. You don't have to go to a foreign city to get Chastain's flirty style. Lace detail and an A-line skirt are easy to wear casually, too. This fit-and-flare lace dress will get you a similar look. Try wearing it with a denim jacket or white belt for a cute, casual outfit.
SAG Awards, 2012
This teal-blue color dress looks great with Chastain's firey red hair, but you don't have to have her locks to get her look! A knit maxi tank dress in a similar teal hue as Chastain's Calvin Klein Collection gown will get you the same fresh look for everyday wear. Slip it on and you'll feel cute and put-together without much effort. Pair it with a straw hat in the summer or leather jacket for fall.
Producers Guild Awards, 2012
Chastain went for a va-va-voom look at the Producers Guild Awards, and nailed it in a black gown with a draped top. With a few adjustments, her look can work for you, too! Get Chastain's sexy, glamorous look with a body-conscious sequin black dress. Pair it with sky-high pumps and a cuff bracelet for a fun night out on the town.
Golden Globe Awards, 2012
Wearing a formal white dress looking bridal is a difficult thing to accomplish, but Chastain stunned in this white embelished Givenchy gown at the 2012 Golden Globes. Once you get red of the high neck and pearls that made Chastain's dress so formal, you're left with a pretty wearable piece of clothing. Pair this cute white maxi dress with booties and a fringed bag to wear to a summer music festival or with colorful leather sandals on vacation.
“The Help” Los Angeles Premiere, 2011
Chastain looked radiant in a plum-colored strapless gown and turqoise earrings at the LA premiere of The Help. We love how the bright blue color or her earrings pops against her hair and stands out from the dark dress. Take a cue from this style star and wear these earrings with a plum-color top or sundress. Unless you have an occasion which requires a floor-length gown and then, by all means.
