Jessica Chastain is on a roll, with film after film being released one after the other this year. Her performance in The Help was stellar and I am trying to find some time to get to the theater and see The Debt, as I heard she did a fantastic job in it.
Naturally, movie releases mean tons of red carpet appearances and premieres, thus Jessica has been shining in gowns for the past few months. At the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival Premiere of her film, Coriolanus, she went for a bold and bright number from Viktor & Rolf’s Resort 2012 collection: a saffron and gold one-shoulder gown with a black belt cinching the waist. She accessorized with simple jewelry from Jack Vartanian, a tousled updo and a rich red lip. Black and yellow is not an easy combination to pull off, but Jessica does it so elegantly. Her red hair always provides an amazing complement to everything she wears.
Here are some yellow pieces to help you go bold and bright for Fall:
Copy Viktor & Rolf’s black and yellow combination in a more subtle way with Acne’s Wilma Wool Crepe Top ($480). Jerome Dreyfuss is one of my favorite handbag designers and his Albert Flap Shoulder Bag ($870) is so chic, in my favorite color. If you want perfect skin for Fall, you need to buy Clarisonic’s Mia® Skincare Brush ($119): it works wonders! Turtleneck time will be here before you know it, so get a head start with Splendid’s Cotton and Modal Blend Turtleneck ($52).
