Fame10 Fashion Evolution: Jessica Chastain
Natural Resources Defense Council’s Oceans Initiative – 2011
Jessica Chastain attended the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Oceans Initiative looking like a little more thought and care went into her hair and clothes. While we love the way she’s styled her hair, we do have some issues with her ensemble. The dress itself isn’t bad. It fits her reasonably well. The shoes don’t fit though. They are a bit too clunky for the dress. Also, closed toed pumps would have been a better choice.
On the plus side, our favorite redhead was just becoming a real star at this point, which was pretty exciting! She appeared in “The Help,” which got her an Academy Award nomination, as well as “The Tree of Life,” alongside Brad Pitt, the crime thriller “Texas Killing Fields” and “Take Shelter.” “The Help” was by far her biggest commercial success. Although she didn’t win the Oscar for her performance, her name and face were now impossible to forget.
84th Annual Academy Awards – 2012
At the 84th Annual Academy Awards, the redheaded actress looked amazing. She had been nominated for the Best Actress Oscar that night for her role as a simple but kind-hearted southern housewife in “The Help.” We really think that she knocked it out of the ballpark with this ensemble. She donned a regal-looking black strapless Alexander McQueen gown, designed by Sarah Burton, which featured gold and black embroidery and tumbling tiers of silk organza. She didn’t take home the Academy Award that night, but she did end up on countless best dressed lists thanks to this daring number.
We think 2012 was one of the biggest and best years for Jessica Chastain. After years of struggling as an actress, she finally got her big break. In addition to her Oscar nomination, she had also received a Golden Globe nod. It may have been a slow road to success, but we think that it is fair to say that she has finally arrived.
