Fug or Fab: Jessica Chastain


fug-or-fab

Her hair! Why isn’t this hair growing out of my head? WHY.

Do you think this works on her?

    Fab from the front, awful from the side. I do like all that is going on with her head though.

    Why isn’t she wearing any lipstick? And the shoes are awful.

      The shoes aren’t awful. They’d be the perfect shoes for some other dress. However, for THAT dress, the one she is wearing at the moment, they are the wrong shoes. Bright red patent, deep burgundy, black, grey, blue suede. I saw this pair for sale the other day – black white, royal blue, all together. With such a plain dress, those’d be great.

      I think she’s just wearing lipgloss. It’s appropriate given the heavy eyeliner. I think she’d look overdone with lipstick.

    She sure is purdy, and she looks younger here than in a lot of recent photos (and I’m NOT saying that she looked old before.) She just looks like a girl here. I guess it’s the hair and makeup. Which is kinda weird, because the Kate Middleton Eyeliner actually ages Kate Middleton.
    So really, I guess I just came here to say that she’s real purdy. Also, a helluva actress.

    I don’t think the shoes fit very well either in addition to not being as flattering as they could be with the dress.

    The side view made this a nope, next for me. If she was like five months pregnant, I would think it looked great.

      Exactly. I thought “Is she THAT PREGNANT and no one noticed?”

      What is it with all the nude shoes? Are these ladies being blackmailed?

        Exactly what I thought! If this was on Hathaway, this would be confirmation of her gestational state.

      Thank you! Why wear something that fits like that unless you want to mess with our brain?

      Concur. The eyeliner helps this time, however.

      As a redhead myself, I am taking this as a reminder to make sure I never use too much eyeliner with too little eyebrow pencil.

      Seriously, IS she pregnant?

        I think it’s just the dress, which sometimes, when a girl wants to eat, is nice! It’s one of my favorite things about peplum waists :)

      I always think that, every time I see her. I wonder if there are brow artistes all over the world itching to get at her with a brow pencil.

    I feel her on the Hand Belts. I too have tried on a dress utilizing Hand Belts before and then purchased it, only to realize later that said dress only looks good that way. :/ Then you’re just walking around awkwardly Hand Belted all night, which makes getting a drink really hard.

    Her head. Man, you just cant beat it.

    Her dress. Man, I’d like to beat with a stick.

    Agree on the hair… it’s so gorgeous! I’m not opposed to the eyeliner wither, she wears it well. The dress tho…. the side view makes her look preggers. And i agree, whither thou jewelry?

    I love this and she does look young.

    When you see what the dress is supposed to look like, it’s not even a win from the front. Looks more like an origami swan napkin that fell apart. Her face sure is great, though.

    That dress is begging for some bling in the form of bracelets, bigger earrings, colorful shoes….something.

    Love the dress, needs accessories. Including shoes. These don’t even count, and as noted above, they don’t fit either.

    That eyeliner is MUCH more artistically applied and tasteful than Middleton’s crayoning. And it really suits Chastain.

    I suspect her brows look better defined and stand out more in person. Still, like so many others, I’d like to see her add a little more color to them.

    Altogether, I’d count this as an “Almost.”

    Her head is fabulous.

    Again with THOSE shoes. I know they’re Louboutains and all that but a) she wears them with EVERYTHING and b) they look too big for her!

    Oh I think she is gorgeous no matter what she wears. I just hope she don’t mess with perfection, as with her hair or her face.

    Love the hair, love the makeup (although I think her eyebrows are too light – just a shade or two darker would do the trick). I like the dress, too, although it would look better and more interesting with some jewelry – on its own, it’s a bit boring. The shoes are boring, too.

    Are you kidding me? The eyeliner looks like someone painted it on the picture after it was taken! Honestly, I don’t know why everyone criticizes Kate Middleton’s eyeliner when we have examples like this floating around. At least Kate has dark features that can carry it.

    I think Chastain is beautiful but this eyeliner thing is awful on her.

    I don’t like the eyeliner – way too heavy for her fair skin and light hair and eyes. She is spectacularly gorgeous. The dress, yuck. That front sculptury-ness is totally weird. And yes, from the side she definitely looks pregnant. And re: the shoes – OMG the nude shoes! Nude nude nude. Nude everything! Why do people have to dress nude? They might as well just be nude.

    She has curves and this shows it, unlike some of her other choices. The side view is unfortunate, but I will chalk that up to being caught at an odd moment of movement. It’s a close fab, but a fab nonetheless for me.

    I thought it was navy. No?

      Yes, I thought so, too! Nude shoes don’t bother me so much with navy.

    If you want to have boring feet with a black dress you wear black shoes! Not nude!!!

    Why isn’t her hair growing out of MY head? OMG, that hair, that face, that skin… GORGEOUS! I love the dress! The shoes are fine, but I’ve never worn a pair of nude shoes and I wouldn’t start with a black dress! I agree about not having enough bling, but it’s a FAB overall for me!

    Where’s the “Oh, Goddess, when will this vile peplum era be over?” button when you need it?
