As we pull together our Academy Awards gown predictions, we’ve had the hardest time picking one for Jessica Chastain. She’s gorgeous, talented and impossible to anticipate on the red carpet, not favoring any one designer or color, and we were stumped.
But the moment we watched this rich violet peplum number sashay down the Oscar de la Renta runway Tuesday night, we knew we’d found the perfect look for her big moment on Feb. 24. First of all, the color was practically made to complement her fair complexion — and in a sea of nudes, blacks and reds, the vivid hue is sure to stand out.
It’s also a blend of fashion-forward and body-conscious, a combination the actress seems to favor. Finally, that neckline is just begging for some major diamond chandeliers or a beautiful diamond choker (by Harry Winston, of course — her go-to jeweler for big events).
Now that we’ve pictured it, we’ll be devastated if our wish doesn’t come true, so let’s just hope she’s an avid reader of the site. Tell us: Do you agree with our pick for Jessica Chastain’s Academy Awards gown? If not, what do you want to see her wear?
