Jessica Chastain at 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' Photocall in Spain

SSFF -  'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' - Photocall

‘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.[10] During the course of their daily lives, the couple encounters a life changing event that threatens the stability of their marriage.[Source]

Jessica Chastain Looked Beautiful @ The 2013 Giffoni Film Festival

Giffoni Film Festival

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!!

CANNES: Jessica Chastain Looked Flawless at the ‘Cleopatra’ Red Carpet Premiere

Jessica Chastain seen arriving at the 'Behind The Candelabra' screening at Palais des Festivals et des Congres as part of the 66th Cannes film Festival in Cannes

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…


NYFW: Favorite Fashionistas at the Calvin Klein Fall Fashion Show

Jessica Hart, Jessica Chastain & Olivia Wilde

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).

I think it’s safe to say the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences who nominates & presents the awards at the annual Academy Awards is seriously regretting not including Ben Affleck as a Best Director nominee for the upcoming awards. Somebody powerful on the committee obviously holds a grudge against Ben (or maybe even Iran), but I think he could careless considering he has won at pretty much every other award show this season. Once again, Ben Affleck & his directorial debut film “Argo” took home the top prizes at the 66th British Academy Film Awards, winning both Best Film & Best Director honors. Let’s hope he & wife Jennifer Garner make sure they use protection when have having sex later tonight back at their luxury hotel in London.

Other notable winners included Daniel Day-Lewis and Emmanuelle Riva receiving awards for Best Actor and Best Actress respectively and continuing her own award season streak, Anne Hathaway scored Best Supporting Actress honors. Christoph Waltz won Best Supporting Actor for his tremendous work in Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained.” And last but not least, “Skyfall” was named Best British Film. If you bastards haven’t watched any of the films, you have a lot of screen time ahead of you.
