Jessica Chastain is known for her fiery red hair and keen sense of fashion. When she showed up in the Oscar red carpet, the A Most Violent Year and Interstellar star didn’t disappoint with her glamorous navy blue Givenchy gown. Chastain kept her hair simple and wore make-up by Kiehl’s and sported jewelry by by Piaget. But truly, the star of the night was Chastain’s dress which featured a beaded top along with a sash that accentuated her neckline and cleavage. Chastain was at the Oscars to present an award. She has been nominated twice before. In 2012 she was nominated for Best Actress for her work in Zero Dark Thirty and also for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Help the year before.
The dress Chastain wore for the Oscars was in stark contrast to the elegant but casual outfit she wore to the pre-Oscars party. For the party, the actress opted to wear a simple navy dress and a jacket that featured textured panels with small textile squares as well as ornate beading and floral sequins. She also wore navy blue pumps that matched the dress and chose to tie her beautiful locks in a ponytail.

In an interview with The Telegraph earlier this year, Chastain revealed that her hair actually was hindrance early in her career. “People would tell me to dye it blond when I first started auditioning in LA. Funny how defined we are by how we present ourselves to the world. I’m either thought of as ethereal or fiery. And maybe that’s the interesting thing about red hair: there’s that fiery Renaissance connotation and the ethereal,” Chastain said.
She adds, “Before then, I wasn’t getting parts because people kept telling me I wasn’t pretty enough. But I’ve come to realize that everyone’s idea of what’s pretty is so different. And this morning, for example, I had someone do my hair and make-up before I met with you. Mine is a strange industry.”
