Jessica Chastain attends the premiere of “Molly’s Game” at the Closing Night Gala at AFI FEST 2017 in Hollywood, California.
Miss Jessica turned the dials up to eleven.
Hair, flawless; face, flawless; dress, flawless. We wouldn’t rate any of this on a trendy, high-fashion, or even chicness scale. That’s not what Miss Jessica is here for. She’s here to sell her movie, and once you see the trailer, you get the red carpet ensemble:
GOD, does that ever look Sorkin-y. But it also looks pretty amazing.
Anyway, as you can see, Jessica more or less came to the premiere in her character’s costume: simple, old-school sexy glam with glitter, big hair, and a slit to the hip. No muss or fuss. We’re not super-crazy about the sheer lace panel on the sides, but it doesn’t take away from the overall effect of the look, which is considerable. The real story, from a style perspective, is the deployment of the long-missed PENDANT. Darlings, we’ve been asking for this piece to come back for some time now. No one’s really doing bracelets on the red carpet right now; not in a big way. And the trend for earrings tends to be fairly demure and low-key. We’re not in a chandelier moment right now, which is a thing you can say with a straight face if you’re really self-important about fashion.
Anyway, we love the look for its simplicity and high impact, but we really love the jewelry choice, and hope we get to see more pendants during awards season.
