Jessica Chastain in Armani Privé at the MoMA Film Benefit: Honoring Guillermo del Toro: IN or OUT?

Posted on December 12, 2022


Miss Jessica Chastain breaks out some classic holiday party style and since we’re still recovering from the holiday party we threw this weekend, we’re making this a holiday-themed IN or OUT post. It’s not that we can’t come up with our own opinion about this look:




It’s a little basic, but kind of pretty, in a color we wouldn’t call the best one for her. It’s also over-embellished, but like we said: pretty enough. We might call the look unobjectionable, which is kinda what you want to go for when you’re attending a party in honor of someone else but you’re still expected to walk a red carpet. What we really call it is a “Pretty but” frock, as in “It’s pretty, but…” with some sort of string of noncommital complaints or shrugs. What we’re interested in here is if any of y’all have a more vehement reaction than our shrugs of acceptance. Is it causing feelings of covetousness or rage in you? Do you feel it’s a decent get-the-job done party dress or do you think it somehow doesn’t flatter or suit her? How about the hair and makeup? We’re feeling a little meh regarding the former and we question whether the lip is the best for her. All of this can be answered with one simple question:
