There’s often a moment at every red carpet event where one of the stars will stop you in your tracks, if only for a second. Whether it’s because they’re the star of the show, or because their charisma is impossible to ignore, or because, to put it simply, their ensemble is breathtaking.
If you’re Jessica Chastain, it’s probably all of the above.
The decorated 44-year-old has had her fair share of red carpet events over the years, and at each and every one of them, she’s further cemented herself as one of the most stylish names in Hollywood.
There’s years-upon-years of Oscars dresses which have landed her on every best-dressed list, there’s her Cannes and Venice Film Festival ensembles now etched rent-free in our minds for life, and there may as well be a fully-fledged ‘Jessica Chastain in Green’ fan club—seriously, that colour with her famous red hair is an avocado and toast-level match made in heaven.
Of course, her iconic red carpet moments have been rolling in for more than a decade, yet she somehow still finds ways to outdo herself.
Back in September 2021, she did just that with her glimmering red Atelier Versace look at the 2021 Film Festival, which she attended alongside her co-star Oscar Isaac. The pair made headlines when Isaac, clearly overcome with admiration for the Zero Dark Thirty star, was pictured staring at her as though she was some kind of mythical God. From long adoring looks to literally kissing her arm, we couldn’t blame him—It is Chastain, after all.
And then there was her Oscars 2022 gown—a sequined Gucci design that pit two colours we never even knew could work this well together—lilac and bronze. Best dressed almost felt like an understatement, to be completely honest. It also turned out to be the perfect dress for the stunning actor to win her first Oscar—she took out Best Actress for her performance in The Eyes of Tammy Faye.
So with that, what better way to appreciate her style wins than to collate them all into one place? Below, 13 times Chastain proved her red carpet style is unmatched.
