Jessica Chastain in Toronto

Posted on September 09, 2013

There is not a chance in hell we’d ever criticize a thing Jessica’s wearing here.


Jessica Chastain makes her way through Toronto airport with her dog Chaplin. Jessica Chastain is wearing Ancient Greek Sandals the “Myrtis.”

Because she is using an adorable 3-legged dog as a shield against all bitchery and we are powerless in the face of such cuteness. POWERLESS. Well played, Chastain. Well played, indeed.

Also: your dress is really kind of cute. And we’re totally not saying that because of your 3-legged dog.

      She AND her dog are adorable! A cute little dress for traveling. And I really like her sandals. And DOG.

      • Rhonda Shore

        and it’s also too cute that she has the plastic bone w/the poop bags attached to the dog’s leash!

    • ChaCha_70

      OMG! Squee! I love that doggie!

    • Rand Ortega

      Look at that Pretty! Jessica’s no slouch, either.
      (that bag is 2 Die!)

    • JMB_edits

      I too have an adorable three legged dog (if she’s still considered adorable at 65 lbs)!!! I didn’t know I was so fashionable! 😉

      • alyce1213

        65 pounds is extra adorable!

      • marlie

        More doggie to love! (I used to call my parents’ 80-lb boxer “the baby,” and he was the most adorable thing in the world!)

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      Love the dog and love that she dressed to match it.

      I might have thought the color was a little blah, but it’s coordinate to her amazing little doggie so it’s just fine.
      She looks really lovely.

      • marlie

        And the dog just looks so HAPPY!

        • alyce1213

          They know when they’re loved.

          • largishbearishAtlish

            as the owner of a rescue (and what do you want to bet this one is?) they KNOW it and KNOW when they are loved- that great pooches smile


            • marlie

              My family has had rescues and non rescues over the years, and they’ve all had this look on their faces, because they’ve all been *adored* members of the family. Happy dogs are the best. :)

    • majorbedhead

      I think this is the best she’s looked in ages. And that dog is very cute. I’m not usually a little dog fan, but that one is pretty adorable.

    • Imasewsure

      Is there someone other than that dog in the picture? Three legged dogs are the ultimate sign of love and perseverance for both the doggie and his owner!! You go Chaplin Chastain!

    • Heather

      Want her hair color. So hard to achieve…. reds not from nature are either too orange or too Strawberry Shortcake.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      Okay T’lo. Now you have done it…. Celebs with dogs pics? (surely no one does RC with dogs? but on the street pics? would be curious… (at first I was all ‘a DOG in an airport? then…I turned to jelly…a doggie…a -3 legged- doggie….awwwww) (time to go scoop up mine for some snuggling)

    • MilaXX

      Killed by the cuteness of the pooch.

    • LaSylphide

      Her hair color makes the dress color come alive. Love the puppy.

    • nannypoo

      I think this dress is really unattractive. And everything she has with her, except for the purse but including the dog, is the same color she is. She’s pretty and the dog is cute, but this outfit is a big fail.

    • kimmeister

      Cute sunglasses.

    • Laura

      Her dog is a rescue! With 4 rescued dogs of my own, so wonderful when celebrities shine the spotlight on rescue. Dog and Jessica look great!

    • quiltrx

      Hand over the bag and no one gets hurt!
      (I mean you, Jessica. I could never hurt that adorable pup in a million years!)

    • NC_Meg

      Is it just me or does she look like Idina Menzel here? I never noticed it before but with the sunglasses, I see Idina. She looks so cute and relaxed and, of course, the dog is adorable.

    • Micaela Cannon

      I was too busy thinking how cute that dog was, how great her hair looks, how silly it is to match your leash to your sandals that i failed to notice the doggie only had 3 legs until I read your commentary at the bottom.

    • Miss WKS

      Is there some reason an actress is unable to push her own luggage cart?

      • Tom and Lorenzo

        Because she’s being photographed, because she’s walking her dog, because she’s got a ton of luggage.

    • Alloy Jane

      She matches her dog! It’s so cute I didn’t even notice the missing paw. I just saw excited puppy-face and gasped a little.

      • Shibori Girl

        Glad someone else caught that too. Attention to detail all you young celebs on the red carpet or at the airport/premier, etc. in the “About to Clean Out the Garage In My Obscenely Short Cutoffs and Torn Tank Top” get ups. This is how it is done! Take note.

        Also, cute dog, cute dress – nicely done

    • shorty j

      sad but true: the first thing I thought was, “man, last time I checked, you are SO not allowed to let your dog out of its carrier in the airport except when you’re taking it through the metal detector. Famous people get all the breaks.” Although maybe this airport has different rules, who knows.

      • Erica_Vuitton

        She may have just arrived at the Toronto airport to go back to LA and that’s exactly what’s about to happen. I can see a carrier on top of the massive pile-o-luggage behind her so maybe Chaplin is just stretching his legs before going into his carrier for the flight.

    • Erica_Vuitton

      I neeeeeeed that purple bag, can anyone ID it?

      ETA: I Google Jessica Chastain + purple bag and she’s got 4 or 5 different ones!

    • imakeart

      And shes’s wearing flats!!

    • teensmom99

      I had that dress circa 1985.

    • Cathy S

      I love that the dog’s name is in the caption. You’re a cutey, Chaplin! And such a great name! Your human looks okay too.

    • JP

      Dying from all the cute!

    • Sarah

      My mom was the same kind of redhead, and defaulted to the same tan color for her neutral, invariably. So, Ms. Chastain is giving me hardcore 80’s mom realness. I want her to make me a toasted cheese sandwich, immediately.

      • embers618

        Yes, my mom had this exact hairstyle for a while when I was young, and a dress like this. I couldn’t figure out why the picture was so comforting, but you nailed it.

    • decormaven

      Too cute! She looks well-put together for a flight. And the pup- adorable!

    • MaggieMae

      Perfect. Reese should get an adorable three legged dog for her Redemption Tour of the Parking Lots. Three cheers for the cute and sensible shoes Jessica. And I bet the dress doesn’t show the dog hair!

    • Adrianna Grężak

      Somewhat related – I once saw a three legged dog (two front, one back) lift its back leg into a “hand stand” to mark a park bench.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      Good plane dress.
