Oscars 2013: Jessica Chastain On Why She Chose An Armani Prive Dress

25 February 2013 by

'I love fashion, I'm a crazy addict,' Jessica Chastain told Ryan Seacrest when she arrived on the red carpet at the Oscar Awards tonight. Ah yes, a girl after our own hearts. And in true fashionista style, she looked resplendent in a form-fitting strapless gown perfect for her golden girl image.

'This is Armani Prive and I chose it because I'm such a fan of movies and it's a very "happy birthday Mr President," dress' she said. 'It reminds me of old Hollywood glamour'.

Jessica, who's nominated for her leading role in Zero Dark Thirty, matched her classic gown with a classic beauty look. Her fiery-hued hair is left loose in sumptuous waves and she's topped it off with a matte red lip and matching manicure. She's accessorised with a Harry Winston bracelet from the 1960s. Does she get to keep it? 'I wish!' she giggled. 'We'll see if they can find me at 10am tomorrow'. We like your style, Chastain.

You'll remember the actress was previously nominated for an Oscar for The Help and graced the Oscars red carpet this time last year wearing an Alexander McQueen gown. So did she have more dress choices this time round now that she's become a major fashion darling? 'Yes, I've had a very happy year,' she beamed. 'Last year, I was a bit stunned by the fog of it and this year, it's like I can see clearly now.'

But one thing has remained the same. For the second year running, Ms Chastain has brought her grandmother as her date. All together now: awww!
