Jessica Chastain may have lost to Jennifer Lawrence in the Best Actress category at the Oscars on Feb. 24, but she still came out a winner!
Bringing sophisticated old-school glamour to Hollywood's biggest night in her sparkling custom Armani Privé gown [see right], Jessica, 35, made all the best-dressed lists and was roundly hailed as the next style star.
"She chose the copper shade...which worked so beautifully with her coloring," Jessica's stylist Elizabeth Stewart tells Life & Style. "She's very involved in all decisions."
But how did she get there? Just a couple years ago, the Zero Dark Thirty star was making more fashion no-no's than showstopping moments. In 2010, the Dolce & Gabbana strapless [see left] held promise but begged for accessories to amp up the impact.
A year later, she missed out on the accessories again and hid her gorgeous figure in a baggy knee-length dress [see middle].But 2013 has proven to be the gorgeous red head's year — she's had more shining red carpet moments than we can count! "Jessica really delivered at the Oscars," says Sam Saboura, style expert and co-host of TLC's Something Borrowed, Something New. "She needed that stellar red carpet moment to make the world notice her — and she got it!"
