Nothing makes us sadder come Style Superstar time than an awards season repeat offender: a fashionista failure who just can’t seem to get it right no matter how many gowns she tries on or red carpets she walks. But on the other hand, nothing makes us happier than taking a previous worst-dressed pick and handing her all of the awards for a total style turnaround! And this week, we’re so psyched to bestow the best-dressed and most-improved honors on Jessica Chastain for her SAG Awards superiority.
Yes! Yay! This is exactly what we were hoping for: Jessica’s sizzling Alexander McQueen dress has all but erased the memory of her ill-fitting look from the Golden Globes. The actress proved that redheads and scarlet gowns need not avoid each other, wowing everyone in a form-fitting strapless satin gown and a blazing diamond necklace. Sure, there were a fair few “Jessica Rabbit” references on the part of certain snarky fashion critics, but they’re just jealous, no doubt—and we’re thrilled to see Jessica back on top of her style game.
And elsewhere at the SAG Awards: oooooh, Claire Danes. This asymmetrical gown with a gothic vibe was a decidedly different look for the “Homeland” actress, who usually favors drapey dresses in less-heavy fabrics, and she carried it off beautifully…from the neck down. But her makeup missed the mark: the combination of brown eye shadow and matte plum-colored lips drained all the color right out of her face, and made her look pale and haunted.
What do you think of this week’s best and worst dressed?
