Fugger: Jessica Chastain

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Unfug It up: Jessica Chastain


I WANT to like this. But I want to like a lot of things: whatever I’m cooking up for dinner in the slow-cooker, the next few episodes of Revenge, what my hair is doing right now. We don’t always get what we want:

I mean, the color is good….? I think my issue is that I don’t understand what it is about this dress that is just leaving me cold. I just stared at it for ten minutes and then announced to the empty room, “This dress makes her head look small.” Which makes me wonder, is it her HAIR that we need to be blaming? Would this be better if she did this hair with it? Does she maybe just need a belt and some sunglasses? Should she go up half a size? Should she start over? Or am I just totally off my rocker, as usual?

Golden Globes Well Played, Jessica Chastain


I am going to start with a very minor nitpick, which is that I don’t think this hair works on her that well.  It’s a little stiff. She looks amazing when she does the Jessica Rabbit hair, and she has never looked better than when she was sort of f’ed up and windblown in Zero Dark Thirty, but this feels a weeee bit 80s Socialite to me, especially with this dress:

That being said, that dress fits her impeccably, and this is exactly what you should wear when you’re presenting an award but not up for one: it’s gorgeous and flattering, but it’s not agitating for that much attention and no one’s going to get mad at it. Big point for appropriateness, Chastain. Now, put on your sunglasses and go stand in a wind tunnel again.

Fugs and Fabs: The National Board of Review Awards


First the New York Film Critics Circle, then this, and the People’s Choice Awards are tonight, so that makes three days in a row of things keeping Hollywood spit-shined and speckled and shoe-horned into glad rags, all in advance of the Globes on Sunday. Nobody loves giving out statuettes more than this town, and bless it for THAT.

Hey, welcome back, Chasty. I presume you’ll be sticking around through March this time?

Can’t you just read Jessica Chastain’s mind here?

I believe the words written all over her face here are, “I HATE YOU FOR MAKING ME WEAR THIS.” I can’t blame her. She looks like the star of the new SyFy movie When Orange Serbet Attacks, which you may know as its working title, Serbertnado.

Chastain’s been laying low lately — it’s summer, and she hasn’t got anything to promote at the moment — but what a way to pop back onto our radar.
