Leave it to Grace, Annie and Vogue to finally figure out how to photograph Jessica’s unusual form of pretty.
Jessica Chastain covers the December 2013 issue of Vogue magazine in a Theyskens’ Theory yellow dress photographed by Annie Leibovitz and styled by Grace Coddington.

Nailed it, wouldn’t you say? Jessica, beautiful as she is, has a string of not-so-great editorials and covers in her past. We chalked it up to her being one of those attractive people who just doesn’t photograph well. Turns out you just need to figure out what she needs (in this case, a relaxed, aristocratic, but unglamorous feel) and she bursts into life in front of the lens. That’s pretty much the best picture of her we’ve ever seen.
