84th Oscars: Jessica Chastain Wears Alexander McQueen

Who: Oscar-nominee Jessica Chastain

Where: At the 84th Academy Awards held at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A bespoke strapless hand-embroidered gold brocade silk organza Alexander McQueen corset gown, which was inspired by nature, and features gold bullion and metal thread; and finishing off her look was $2million-worth of Harry Winston jewels.

Verdict: As soon as I saw this gown I gasped, this dress is so exquisite in its design and construction, but mainly I was wowed by how pleased I was that Jessica Chastain took the risk wearing it as she could have easily just gone down the princess route or plain black.

This regal gown is simply gorgeous and the camera loves it, also Sarah Burton is a genius at creating gowns that have a lot of hand-embroidered detail on while still making them super flattering and the beading on this dress is perfectly positioned. I also love her half-up-half-down hair – this is a chic look from head-to-toe.

I love it and I am sure that Jessica will be the toast of most best dressed lists.
