Venice Film Festival: Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac at the “Scenes from a Marriage” Photocall

Posted on September 04, 2021

Oscar Isaac, out here putting all other male co-stars to shame. Not with his red carpet choices, which are … well, we’ll get to them later, but because he’s willing to hold his-co-star’s purse while she zhuzhes her hair for the cameras. You just don’t see that kind of chivalry anymore, do you?



Okay, let’s judge them.


Jessica Chastain in Giambattista Valli

We’re often a little hard on her for her style choices, mainly because they never seem to suit her all that well. We’re not sure this vaguely Audrey Hepburn-esque take would have been our first recommendation for her, but we can’t deny that it looks really great on her. Our only quibble is an almost embarrassingly old-fashioned one. Given that you can see the skirt through the jacket, we think this would have looked better if she’d worn a slip. We honestly don’t mind that you can see through it, but that overlap of jacket and skirt is a little awkward. LOVE the earrings and bag. We think strappy white sandals might have made a better choice.


Oscar Isaac in Prada

It’s Prada, so we can’t get mad at him for showing up sloppy and it’s a photo call, so we can’t get mad at him for showing up casual. We want to say we’d rather he’d worn the shirt closed and left the undershirt in his suitcase, but we really just don’t like the shirt that much. Love the shoes, though. They’ve got a subtle lift to them, but unlike a lot of height-enhancing shoes, the design isn’t affected by it.
