Cannes In or Out: Jessica Chastain in McQueen

Posted on May 17, 2012

We’ve been bitching a lot lately (as is our nature) about those dusty, mauve-y pinks that have been showing up on the red carpets, but from where we’re sitting, this is exactly the kind of pink that works best when you want a toned-down pink:

Jessica Chastain attends opening ceremony and ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ premiere at Cannes in an Alexander McQueen dress paired with Louis Vuitton diamond earrings and cuff bracelet from the “Les Ardentes” collection.

 

Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 Collection

Louis Vuitton Cuff Bracelet

So toned-down it’s practically white in photographs, but we think you can get the gist of it. It’s very pale pink and it suits very pale Jessica very well. The simplicity of this gown also suits her. Too often, she’s out in things far too complicated for her. She needs clean lines and minimal detailing. Love the jewelry, but we think it was a mistake to go beltless. It instantly makes this look bridal. We go back and forth on that neckline and whether or not it works for her, but overall, we think this may be one of the prettiest looks she’s ever sported.

Minions are encouraged to vigorously disagree.

IN! Clean and chic!

 

OUT! Cannes Barbie!

 

 

The kittens were mostly in agreement that Kristen Stewart’s very colorful dress was an IN but that her sour face and shitty makeup were OUT.

    IN!!! she (finally) looks spectacular on the red carpet.  i love her jewelry, too.

       IN!! She better not come my way because I will rip that jewelry right of her skinny little arm (and right out of her earlobes too, which… sorry).

        The belts where one of my favourite things in that collection.

    • 3boysful

       Agreed.  Without it, and with the pockets, there’s a teeny 1950′s-housefrau-apron vibe to it.

    We. Get. It. There are pockets. That doesn’t mean you need to pose with your hands in them. Pockets are for hiding some mints, your phone and lipgloss. They aren’t a prop. 

    Otherwise, she looks pretty great.

    IN for me. I can’t tell if I love how un-fettered it is, or if it needs a belt and more showy jewelry…maybe it’s the kind of thing that works both ways. 

  • colleenjanel

    I agree it needed a belt. But I don’t mind the neckline. I normally hate anything that plunges so low, but she appears well contained in this one. I dont think she’s in danger of the girls escaping. IN

     So what’s the consensus on posing on the RC when you have pockets?    Is it a no no for the guys, but the gals get a pass?

    • Spicytomato1

      I was wondering the same thing. Although maybe she gets a pass because it doesn’t really alter/ruin the lines of the dress when she puts her hands in her pockets.

    Dull and washed-out.

    Out!

    IN! Love it! That’s a difficult neckline to work.

    • makeityourself

      I don’t think it works.  That teardrop shape neckline gives a saggy look to everything happening in the bodice.  And it needed a belt.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    IN. Love the shape, especially that neck line.  I wouldn’t have known it was pink if it hadn’t been pointed out.  Not to mention she finally looks fully put together and knows it.  

  • joe_tey83

    Kind of blah.

  • Spicytomato1

    It’s pretty and clean and simple, but I don’t think it does much to flatter her figure. In some of the shots it verges on maternity wear to me. But hair, makeup and jewelry are lovely so I’ll give her a semi-reluctant IN.

  • http://twitter.com/GaraStJames Gara St. James

    I’ll give it an “in” even if I’m not completely sold on that neckline.

  • Sara__B

    This is too ordinary for Cannes. For such a clean simple look to work, the fit has to be impeccable — and it’s not — and the styling has to be exceptional — and it’s not. Lower case “in”.

  • j_anson

    Totally IN.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001998855370 Fatima Siddique

    That neckline is not quite working on her. Probably because she, unlike the model, has curves. Sadly, this translates to her boobies looking kinda crooked. 

  • http://twitter.com/MandySCG MandyJane

    In, she looks lovely. Her makeup is great, too. 

  • Super_Red

    I don’t know that I can vigorously disagree, but I think I’m going to say Out. I viciously hate that neckline (In general, not just on her) and while she looks stunning otherwise, I can’t get over that. I’m seeing more of her girls than I want to. 

  • Marissa Wiley

    YAWN.  Out.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/3OAUU2RNX3DHVJ45KLE3ZJ3LLY Meshear

    She looks very pretty here, but I agree that she needs a belt.  Still, an IN!

  • http://twitter.com/Delfine Mia Pette

    IN, but the bodice looks a little big on her and yes, it needed a belt. 

  • MilaXX

    Small IN with reservations. I think this dress still needs a belt, even if it’s just a small, skinny one. I also don’t care for this color on her. I think a deep, saturated color like a navy, an emerald green or burgundy would suit her coloring better. In sure, I’m willing ti give it a small in because the shape suits her and her hair & makeup look good.

  • kelsita421

    That neckline is really bugging me… And agreed it needs a belt… But still IN for being overall pretty.

  • Lina_bee

    In. Among her top 5 looks. I agree about the belt, tho.

  • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

    IN. For the jewelry alone. I like the dress on her and it keeps growing on me more and more. The neckline isn’t my favorite and it needs a belt, though I’m not loving the one on the model, but overall she looks lovely and comfortable too.

  • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

    I went back and forth on it. There are all sorts of details I don’t like, but the overall effect is a clean, pretty Jessica Chastain who looks like a natural beauty…which she IS, but rarely looks like on the RC. So this is incredibly suited for her and earns an IN.

  • Diane_G

    IN, mostly because I love the earrings and they somehow remind me of Dr. Who.

  • LongTall_Sally

    IN, but it is lacking without the belt.  I like the necklace on the model too.

    In, although I agree about the belt.

    You’re right, the outfit sets off her coloring and looks (rather than her trying to live up to the outfit and missing).  IN.

  • Kimberly Southern-Weber

    IN!

  • bluefish

    IN but, like Tilda, too long in the hem. Needs a belt — and possibly a better fit.  I love that shade of pink and she’s a beautiful woman.  Not a cuff lover — and the earrings, while beautiful, kind of complicated for this dress.  She should’ve gone with the original runway look — belt, modern necklace, lose the earrings.  But In.  I could also live with seeing a bit less of the girls on display but what the hell — no point being prudish.

  • Kate4queen

    IN :)

  • MK03

    Ehh. I just can’t get worked up about this one way or the other. It’s fine, but kind of boring. Though I do love the jewelry.

    In, but i think she should have kept the belt.

  • elleg929

    IN but does need the belt.

  • AlexisPayne

    IN! Love the color on her, love the lines of the dress, but points shaved off because it needs the belt.

  • http://twitter.com/alienspouse Jen Alien-Spouse

    IN – But a belt would help.

    Question – When posing on the red carpet in a dress that has pockets why must the lady-stars always jam their hands into said pockets? It doesn’t look good, so why are they doing it? Contractual obligations to highlight all of the dresses many features?
    This is slightly hypocritical as  I love dresses with pockets myself (where else do you keep your office keys?), but I’m not required to look magically delicious whenever I leave the house, you know?

  • crash1212

    IN – but it looks white on my screen. I’ll take your word for the pinky-ness of it and in my mind the shade is beautiful. Shoulda gone with a belt though.

  • Dhammadina

    A summer rose. In. 

  • DaveUWSNYC

    In…pretty and fresh

  • piecesofconfetti

    IN. Finally a McQueen that looks good on her. I’m not convinced she’s fashion-forward enough to wear most of their designs.

  • altermyego

    In! This dress is a perfect canvas for showing off some spectacular jewelry (not necessarily large jewelry) a fabulous necklace and as other have said, a belt would have been great. But I still love this look as is and would love to see it in person. This looks like a dress that can be worn many times over with different jewelry, scarves, shawls,  etc and not get old for years to come (or until her boobs sag, whichever comes first)

    TLo – any word on who made that fabulous cuff or where it comes from?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1313126032 Ajuna Ariel Fenty

  • http://twitter.com/_karenbee_ Karen Bee

    In, but needs a belt.

  • http://www.filmsbyneptune.com/ Dani Colman

    Enh, it’s a lovely colour, but it’s making her boobs look lopsided.  I’m quite sure Ms Chastain does not have lopsided boobs, so I suspect it’s a combination of the very low neck, the way the dress twists a little when she poses, and the fact that she is rather better endowed than the model.  A slightly higher neck would have solved the problem, I think.  And it does need the belt.  OUT, but by a hair.

  • hexiadetrix

    In – she’d look more striking in a stronger color, but this suits her. Like everyone else I would have preferred a belt to make it slightly edgier and less like a wedding cake.

  • judybrowni

    IN, except for the titscrepancy, and the no-bra-hanging-breasts look.

  • ErmengardeGreen

    Relaxed and gorgeous without being too casual, and among her best red-carpet looks to date. I do wish the waist had been fitted a little more severely — I am torn about the idea of a belt; I worry that the urge to belt might have turned into an urge to belt with black, and I’d hate to see the long line broken that way, but I agree that some waist definition would not be amiss — but for me the stiff fabric and unusual neckline allude to a more casual shirt or shirtwaist in a great way. She looks comfortable! And such a good point about that petal pink. Big IN. 

  • Leonardo Alves

    I think the color looks pretty on her. The fitting, however, looks odd! Kinda wrinkled…

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Pretty, fresh, happy…IN (agree about the belt  - would have been perfect)

  • fringebenefit

    OUT. Belt was essential equipment.

  • EditKitten

    I think this is the best she’s ever looked. Loooooove her jewelry!

  • Tracy_Flick

    I’ll be a dissenting vote. OUT. Not because of the color, though. Because it looks she made it at home using sale-rack polyester fabric. It’s stiff, the gathering at the waist seems uneven and awkward-looking, and the design is very Simplicity Level 2. The pockets are sort of silly, too. The only thing that rates an IN is the jewelry.

  • BazoDee

    IN but I do have issues with the neckline. And yes the belt would have been good. 

  • Rebecca Bledsoe

    I like the neckline better with the necklace that’s on the runway version, but it would have been overkill combined with the jewelry she is wearing, which I LOVE. A belt would be nice, but the lack of one doesn’t bother me too badly. Her hair and makeup are lovely, too. Definitely an IN!

  • Judy_S

    In. Your comments are great–a belt would help. But it’s a lovely color and style on her.

  • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

    I’m going’ with IN on this one, though I would have preferred it if the ladies hadgottena teeny bit more support. And I love it without the belt. The serene simplicity of this is perfect for her fragile looks.

  • Caaro3

    IN.  I’m not shallow and not young, but if I could look like that for one day . . . O, the places I would go!

    IN. I concur with everything, especially the belt comment (although not the belt shown on the model). That jewelry is stunning.

  • belfebe

    I am going to be the lonely voice of dissent.  I think that she looks washed out, needs a belt, and the top doesn’t fit right.  She’s pretty though.  Makeup and jewelry are excellent.  Still OUT for me.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P2ANLRZ6YAVGONA36I2AQJYGI VicD

    Out.  This dress actually needs the statement necklace and twee silver belt.  She looks like she’s in a nightgown prepped for open heart surgery with that neckline and everything else so plain.

  • Laura Nugent

    It looks too weird around the bust, like it’s poorly fitted. Out!  I always want her to be so much better than she is.

  • Anathema_Device

    I’ll go with In, even though I think the belt would have really pulled the look together.

    That jewelry is to die for!

  • Jessi03

    I’m in the minority, but I really dislike this dress.  Love the jewelry, though.

  • formerlyAnon

    IN. Clean & chic, indeed. Though my definition of chic stops short of quite that much visible breast. But I must admit a more restrained bodice might have allowed my eye to fall downward and complain that the waist should have been marked with, if not a belt, some subtle detail.

    Very nice cuff.

  • boomchicabowwow

  • http://twitter.com/Lily1129 Lily

  • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

    Hate the dress (good colour, awful shape) but in terms of hair, makeup, jewellery and all around prettiness, this has to be an IN.

  • up with pod people

    Gorgeous, though I may have to mug her for the cuff and earrings. Jesus.

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    OUT — the top of the dress doesn’t fit or needs some internal support or something.  It makes it appear as though her bosoms are heading off in different directions.

  • turtleemily

    An in of encouragement since this is the most comfortable she’s seemed in front of a camera.

  • altalinda

    Out.  Should have had a belt, the neckline shouts here are my breasts!, the dress is wrinkled.  But definitely a step up for her.

  • aristida_girl

    out! hate the bust

  • SewingSiren

    The neckline is a little too low and open. Other than that perfect.

  • http://twitter.com/nicolahearts nicole seligman

    IN! i love that shape on her and the color is working with her skin/hair. best she’s looked.

  • nannypoo

    I think a belt would be good, but this is really a great look for her. She seems a little obsessed with those pockets, but I guess your hands have to be somewhere.

  • http://www.wordydoodles.com WordyDoodles

    Love ya, TLo, but this is an Out for me. The bust/neckline isn’t fitting quite right– it looks like she might be slightly shorter-waisted than the model, maybe causing the neckline to fall open a bit more instead of laying flat.

    And this dress absolutely needed a belt. The runway belt was actually lovely and interesting.

    I also think her makeup could have been stronger- a stronger brow and slightly more color in the lip would have given the look more personality and polish. She’s beautiful and glowing either way, though.

  • TheLaurenJean

    In!

  • Joyce VG

    I don’t like the bust area. OUT.

  • Amy Ellinger

    in. BUT- If you’re gonna go McQueen, you better be ready to rock it out.  Needed a belt, and some color in her accessories- some emeralds or sapphires maybe?
    and I’m taking off points for seeing a wee bit too much of her inner-sideboob for my taste.

  • cleep1000

    So IN.

  • Lola67

    In, she looks beautiful and fresh. Great color on her…….but Jessica, honey, stay clear of Fan Bingbing.

  • BobStPaul

    In for sure.  I think that’s close to the, if not the, best she’s ever looked on the RC.

  • Zippypie

    OUT – too precious and it looks maybe a tad too big under the bustline and around the waist, which is distracting in such a pale lifeless color.

    The earrings, however, are a huge IN.

  • giiiirrrr

    Definitely IN.  Nitpicks: needs a belt (I would love an edgy leather one), a deeper lip color on the pink/red continuum, and a good steaming of the bottom of the dress.

  • http://cheekypinky.wordpress.com/ Rebecca

    In, but seriously wish she had kept the belt.

  • Jangle57

    IN – though it definitely needed a belt

  • Sophie Collier

    The decolletage is kind of unflattering, and the necklace on the model actually improves it, but a necklace with those earrings and that cuff would have been overkill.  This is an IN, though.  Definitely an IN.

    NO to in-sideboob, and it shoulda been white.

  • littlemac8

    A lovely, simple look on her with possibly the most beautiful pair of diamond earrings I’ve ever seen in my life!!

  • E_bee

    Yes, it does want a belt, but it isn’t ruined by the lack. In.

  • LittleKarnak

    Needs the belt and  her girls need some cleverly hidden support but she looks comfortable so IN!!

  • butterflysunita

    OUT.  Though that may be because after seeing the photos of Fan Bing Bing, this look just bores me.  

  • Melissa Brogan

    IN! I definitely think it needs a belt, but for once a woman in pale pink doesn’t look like a column of monochromatic paleness.

  • guest2visits

    Yes! looks cool and chic; easy elegance.  Love that it’s pale pink. Love the jewels.  She looks wonderful.

    In. Although I hate when celebs get a dress with pockets and have their hands shoved as far in as they can go in every picture.

  • allisankelly

    She looks very pretty, but the dress doesn’t strike me in any way. I do like the jewelry. A belt might have been nice. Just because a dress has pockets, doesn’t mean you need to pose whilst using them.

  • PaperPusher2

    I think for once she’s wearing the dress rather than the other way around.  I wish the fit under her pits/side of her chest would’ve been fitted better though.  Although I am not a belt with every thing proponent, I do think you’re right that a belt was needed here to cinch her in the middle, create a break in that sea of fabric.  Love, love the color.  It’s pink for mature, sophisticated women who want to wear pink but don’t want to look like Barbie.  In.

    Washed OUT.

    IN! I’m not a jewelry person usually, but those earrings are stunning.

  • carolynmo

    In! Not entirely wild about the neckline, but she looks great, otherwise.

  • elzatelzabelz

    IN. It would have been IN-er with a belt, but great generally and great for her.

    I would sell my soul to Dick Cheney for that Louis Vuitton cuff bracelet. 

    • PeaceBang

      If you work that deal, can you throw in the earrings for me? 

  • prettybigkitty

    IN.  Very pretty indeed.  Nicely done.

  • Susan Crawford

    IN! I would have kept the belt as featured in the McQueen styling, but the dress looks great on her. And the jewelry . . . shutting it DOWN!

  • MzzPants

    IN.

  • lifetime_student

    In. A belt would’ve bumped it up to IN!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3AJ237ND3GAHDQJZ4TLCO4WLRA Emily

    In.  She looks so beautiful and fresh as a daisy.  This look shows how naturally beautiful she really is.

  • snarkykitten

    it’s a nice color on her, but the bottom looks stiff and so, so wrinkled 

  • another_laura

    In.  The pink is not attempting to mimic flesh so works better for me.

  • PeaceBang

    In. Although I have this mental image of Stanley Tucci as his “Prada” character ripping through the Accessories Closet looking for the right belt. 

  • Joey Melliza

    in – but i think it has fit issues

  • TSkot

    Gorgeous!  WAY in!

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    OUT!  Not her color.  Again.

  • http://twitter.com/pag_baj Paige Boerman

    She looks really great – but that titscrepancy is a problem. Still, she’s in. Just have a minion make sure your boobs are where they need to be before you hit the carpet next time, girl.

  • ccm800

    IN – wow she looks great I think she is a daytime beauty. The night and the flashes and such are less than favorable to her, but here in natural light she is radiant. 

  • http://twitter.com/bert_keeter bert keeter

    Almost there…fabric looks sort of poor / weak! Love the full skirt…enough already with T n A all the time!

  • http://www.thatwasdramatic.tumblr.com/ Anya

    IN! She looks gorgeous here. She seems so happy and grateful-to-be-there all the time, it’s especially refreshing. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VA5XLSF3QRELSC3MUFSXLP4EIE rebecca

    OUT. Needs a belt and I don’t like the neckline on her.

  • karena10

    The color is beautiful. but the neckline ruins the whole look.  OUT.

  • Aurumgirl

    She’s finally found her McQueen!  And yes, this pale pink colour (which is so beautiful on redheads) works perfectly for her. If I could compare her to Tilda Swinton here, this pale shade works for Jessica and not so much for Tilda because Jessica’s hair colour is more vibrant, Tilda’s more soft. 

    But lately, I’ve been noticing that Tilda’s most formal gowns all seem to have a drape or tailoring focus on the waist, pulling the eye in to a point so that the waist looks much smaller.  That’s what a belt would have done for Jessica here.  Every time she’s wearing a dress the waist seems to be the “problem” area for her, in that the dresses she usually wears don’t seem to flatter or create the illusion of a smaller waist.  It’s what I think makes her look like she’s not photogenic.

    Love it–you’re right, it really suits her.

    IN!
     

  • Beardslee

    IN – simple and chic and the hemline is just right.

  • ballerinawithagun

    In, because she looks gorgeous, but I hate the neckline. Sewing must be precise for that neckline and fabric and it is not! A big necklace as on the model would have distracted from the problems. Also, as in the Tilda Haider Ackermann, too long for the fabric.

  • http://smalltownbigwardrobe.wordpress.com Catherine

    GET YOUR HANDS OUT OF THE DAMN POCKETS! Out for that reason alone.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase

    In! I will be tackling her for that cuff later.

  • Larkin21

    Love it all! IN :)

  • chelwi

    In. Because it’s the best she’s looked on the red carpet. But I’m not a big fan of the material of the dress.

  • bellafigura1

    Waay IN.  She has a gorgeous decolletage and I think this neckline is stunning on her.  I agree about the belt — it looks like something is missing.  But she is working that McQueen.  A very good fashion moment (not great).

  • TieDye64

    IN. I’m not completely sold on the neckline, but it’s a good look overall. Pretty.

  • Mirakel9

    The belt and necklace on the model look great and should have been added. I don’t like the bodice on her – boring and too revealing. The color is pretty, though.

  • saanrio

    OUT.  The simplicity is there, but there is something just not quite right about it.. maybe the length, or the fullness of the skirt, or maybe just the fact that she kept putting her hands in the pockets.. I just don’t quite like it.  The color, since it looks totally white on my screen, I won’t quibble about, but the dress itself… just doesn’t work for me.

  • chitowndg

    In

  • http://twitter.com/Merneith Merneith

    Hate the neckline and the lack of belt. Out.

  • Jennifer Hofstetter

    I don’t now if it’s because it’s in photo or if it’s the hands in the dress, but it makes her hips look wide. I don’t really like the dress on her when compared to the model, but I guess she looks pretty. Very lackluster IN.

  • marilyn

    This is not edgy enough for Cannes. Out.

  • http://profiles.google.com/hillaryschuster Hillary Schuster

    IN. She looks gorgeous (I agree about needing a belt – but not the one on the model).

  • ThaliaMenninger

    IN. I think she looks lovely, comfortable and very much herself. Love the hair, too, btw.

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    IN.  Love it.  Though I agree with the belt issue.  Still, she looks radiant.  Big ole IN.

    IN. Love the neckline.

    IN. Love the neckline. 

  • Kelly Kerwin

    IN! Killer!

  • lrhoff

    Love it, but she really id need a belt.  Barey “in”, I guess.  Feeling rather kind today, obviously.

  • TomBord

    lovely. 

  • NurseEllen

    Out.  A pink sheet that was creatively scissored.

  • LambeeBaby

    In, and Iike it much better without the belt.

  • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

    IN.  i love it.  it perhaps could use a thin little belt, but not the one on the model with the weird metal faux bow sticking out.  the jewelry is exquisite, it needs to come and live with me.

  • Lisa

    Out, but not a glaring out.  It’s too overly simple, and it doesn’t fit her well.

  • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

    In. Ginger Grace Kelly.

  • http://twitter.com/danielleRwest Danielle West

    In, but she needs to take her hands out of her pockets.

  • http://twitter.com/watchinginkdry Dr Skylaser

    Disagreeing vigorously over here.  Hate the color (and think it makes her look like she has pinkeye!!).  The lack of belt is ugly, although the belt on the model was also ugly.  OUUUUT.

  • RzYoung

    IN! Oh, she looks so lovely!! It’s beaming out of her, can’t you tell? She loves that look and knows she looks great. She looks so comfortable too. Stunning earrings!
