As she always tends to do, Jessica Chastain channeled some of her old-school Hollywood charm at the red carpet premiere of her latest film “Crimson Peak.” The premiere was held at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square in NYC.
This is the latest project by Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, who wrote, produced & directed this film. Aside from Jessica, the cast also includes Mia Wasikowska, Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunnam. Here’s more about the film:
Set in Cumbria, England, in a crumbling mansion in a largely rural and mountainous region of northern England in the late 19th century, young author Edith Cushing (Wasikowska) falls in love and marries Sir Thomas Sharpe (Hiddleston) but then discovers that her charming new husband is not who he appears to be. His home harbors ghostly, mysterious entities, which he and his sister, Lady Lucille Sharpe (Chastain), desperately and fiercely try to hide. Source

With 2015 Toronto International Film Festival kicking off yesterday, A-list celebs are starting to appear to promote their latest films! One of the first films under the spotlight is ‘The Martian,’ which features a long list of names including Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, and others. The actors pictured held a special press conference at the TIFF Bell Lightbox ahead of tonight’s big premiere (we’ll post those photos soon).
The film, which is directed by Ridley Scott, premieres today at TIFF and goes into wider release in the U.S. on October 2. Here’s more:
A human mission to Mars goes awry, and astronaut Mark Watney (Damon) is presumed dead and left behind on the planet by his crew. Watney fights to survive in the harsh environment and to signal to others that he is still alive. Upon discovering Watney’s signal, NASA, scientists all around Earth, and his crew members collaborate to find a way to rescue him.[Source]

‘Eleanor Rigby’ is definitely on my list of top 5 favorite songs by the Beatles (couple others on the list include ‘Yesterday’ and ‘All You Need Is Love’), so that’s one of the reasons for this post. The fact that Jessica Chastain looked absolutely beautiful at the photocall didn’t hurt either.
These were snapped at photocall event held for her new film ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’ as part of the 62nd San Sebastian International Film Festival. Here’s more about the film:
All three films follow the same time period, but are told from the differing perspectives of Connor Ludlow (James McAvoy) and Eleanor Rigby (Jessica Chastain), a young married couple living in New York. Him looks at their relationship from Connor’s angle, while Her follows Eleanor’s. Connor spends his days working in his restaurant while his wife Eleanor returns to college for further education. During the course of their daily lives, the couple encounters a life changing event that threatens the stability of their marriage.[Source]
Classic Hollywood beauty Jessica Chastain hits the blue carpet looking amazing in a red dress designed by Dolce & Gabbana. Whenever I see Jessica Chastain on the red carpet, I’m always reminded of old-school Hollywood glamour. The Oscar-nominated actress proudly showed off her “Giffoni Experience Award 2013” trophy on the blue carpet.
The Giffoni Film Festival, which is billed as the world’s latest children-centric film festival, is going down in the southwestern Italian town of Giffoni Valle Piana (Wiki). Who knew there was a children’s film festival?! Well, believe it or not, but it’s been going on since 1971!!
Wow, absolutely amazing. It seems like this woman kills it each time she hits the red carpet. These were snapped last night at the ‘Cleopatra’ premiere during the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival. The beautiful ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ actress also attended the ‘Behind The Candelabra’ screening wearing the same Versace dress. Even at the Oscars, Jessica was one of the best dressed, so major props to her team for maintaining the consistency on the red carpet.
Here’s Jessica the same day in Cannes at a ‘Cleopatra’ cocktail party hosted by Bulgari…
As you guys know, Jessica Chastain already won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for “Zero Dark Thirty” and received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress. More later when we put Jessica up against the rest of the Best Actress Nominees.
All three ladies looked absolutely beautiful as they hit up one of the final runway shows of the Fall/Winter 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Olivia Wilde & Jessica Chastain were spotted in the front row at the Calvin Klein Fall Collection Fashion Show yesterday afternoon, while Ausie model Jessica Hart also catwalked her way to the event rocking a very old-school-new-school look that I’m digging a lot. When you’re a beautiful, world-class supermodel, I think it’s fairly easy to pull off pretty much anything.
At the end of the day, if I had to choose a favorite of the three, I’d have to go w/ Jessica Chastain. She’ll be the center of attention, regardless of whether she’s walking back home following her theatre gig or hitting up a Fashion Week runway show. She’s simply a classic beauty. Her Broadway debut “The Heiress,” in which she played Catherine Sloper, had its final show on Feb. 9 after running since November. Check her out in theaters as she’s starring in two major films, “Zero Dark Thirty” and the seemingly “low-budget” horror flick “Mama,” which has already earned nearly $80 million (production budget was around $15 million).
