What a difference the SAG Awards makes.
Screen Actors Guild Best Actress presenter and nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) chose a halter neck aqua gown for the recent Golden Globes. And -- to put it politely -- the dress did not receive critical raves. The adjectives droopy, unflattering, ill-fitting were used.
But she played it safe and sure this week at the Screen Actors Guild Awards wearing a classic bright red strapless gown -- chosen by her Power Stylist Elizabeth Stewart-- and designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
The nominee also eschewed big hair and stuck with a sleek side parted do and just enough Harry Winston diamond jewelry to warrant a security guard.
It's worth noting that the last time Chastain wore red was at the Critics Choice Awards -- an embellished Prada dress adorned with Harry Winston jewelry and Jimmy Choo shoes.
Is red her good luck color? We will find out tonight!
She's got another big carpet ahead: The Academy Awards. And we're sure she's saved the best dress for last. Will she wear Armani, McQueen, Marchesa, Prada, Chanel, Valentino?
Oh, the suspense, the suspense!
