Jessica Chastain doesn't look like she belongs to this world. Rather, the Zero Dark Thirty actress looks like she has been teleported from a bygone Hollywood era. She has a certain soft glamour and poise that parlays into never following trends, lady-like hemlines and a devotion to patent leather pumps. She doesn't seem to do 'off-duty', and I assume that she merely wakes up in the morning with her hair in soft waves, encased in a jewel-toned cocktail frock and her feet squeezed into towering heels. Her pale skin and red hair is perfectly suited to the pastels and rich, deep colours that she tends to favour. Shift dresses, soft draping and below the knee lengths are on regular rotation. But it's the unwavering elegance that I'd like to bottle. Well, that and those perfectly formed soft waves.
