The star knows what she likes, and we can see why.

Oscar-winning actress Jessica Chastain is always a welcome presence on the red carpet. Her style is fresh and elegant, always playing with old Hollywood shapes but never feeling like a costume.

The woman knows how to wear a dress, and those dresses were often made by Middle Eastern designers.

Elie Saab has done it again (so has Zuhair Murad)

This week, while promoting her new film Molly’s Game, Chastain has treated us to two sublime looks from this part of the world.


First off we have this stunning Zuhair Murad number, worn to the film’s London premiere. Chastain attended with costar Idris Elba.

We love the embellishment, the tea length skirt, and the half-caped sleeve. It’s like a 1950s prom dress but somehow a little weirder (always a good thing).

Then on Tuesday evening in Amsterdam, Chastain opted for a bright teal gown from Elie Saab’s spring/summer 2018 collection, Amazon Crush.

Chastain looks incredible. That colour is perfect on her, and Saab’s signature detailing is super flattering. It’s a beautiful gown.

Here’s the same dress on the Paris Fashion Week runway back in October:

We just can’t decide which colour we’d rather wear to some hypothetical gala event. Gorgeous.

Back in May, Chastain wore this stunning Zuhair Murad gown at Cannes. So striking.

And then in November came this high-neck, high-slit sequinned Elie Saab. It’s safe to say Chastain has the range.

As awards season in the States approaches, and with Molly’s Game being major Oscar bait, we can’t wait to see what she wears next.

Our money is from something from this part of the world.
