We’re jealous of her hair, lips, modeling gigs and now her closet. Jessica Chastain reveals that all of those beautiful, one-of-a-kind gowns she wears on the red carpet are actually still in her possession.
Every time Jessica Chastain hits the red carpet, editors suffer from a serious case of hair envy. But lately we’ve noticed the actress has been experimenting a lot with extensions. To be more specific, she’s had three different lengths in the past two weeks.

Did you accomplish anything big this morning? Hit the gym, make a great smoothie, actually blow out your hair before getting to work? Well, Jessica Chastain, David Beckham and Chloë Grace Moretz all had huge fashion line announcements. Sorry to rub it in.
Three of Hollywood’s major leading ladies — Amy Adams, Allison Williams and Jessica Chastain — opted for the red-carpet hair trend we never get sick of seeing: old Hollywood glam bombshell waves — at tonight’s Golden Globes.

Love It: Jessica Chastain’s Pretty Black Number: Jessica is one of those stunning stars who looks amazing in everything — but she seems to take fashion a little seriously. That’s why I loved that she picked this sweet black Elie Saab dress with delicate beading and embroidery. It was flirty, playful and, with those barely-there Jimmy Choos and rich red lip, more than a little sexy. –Alex Apatoff, Senior Style Editor

Love It: Emmy Rossum’s Gorgeous Gray Leather Dress: Colleagues, you may notice there is now a collection jar in my office with Emmy’s photo on it. I am taking donations large and small in hopes of stowing away enough money (a girl can dream) for the second her buttery gray dress, a part of J. Mendel’s Pre-Fall 2015 collection, hits stores. Thanks to the paneling, the fit — and flare — of this structured number feels ultra cool and modern. And while I can’t also snag the Shameless star’s vintage Ralph Lauren clutch, I can and will copy her very pretty matchy-matchy burgundy lip and nails. –Jackie Fields, Beauty Writer
Leave It: Jemima Kirke’s Black Satin Gown: My first thought seeing Jemima Kirke’s look at the Girls premiere in N.Y.C. was that she must have had an accident getting out of her car — that’s one extreme, ill positioned, slit. I don’t think the flowy top works with such a hip-hugging (or maybe the more appropriate word is hip-squeezing) skirt. And with such a baggy fitting top, her messy updo looks less wavy/romantic and just plain, well, messy. Another beauty detail she should have considered? Matching her lip shade to her clutch — with such a drab dress, a lively stain would have really brightened her face. –Colleen Kratofil, Assistant Producer
Jessica Chastain is too busy promoting her new film A Most Violent Year to be bothered with clothes. And that includes the clothes she’s wearing to the Golden Globes, where she’s nominated for Best Actress.
“I have no idea what I’m wearing Sunday,” the actress told reporters at the National Board of Review awards gala in N.Y.C. Tuesday, just before picking up a best supporting actress award.
Most redheads try as hard as they can to avoid Little Orphan Annie comparisons. But Jessica Chastain is not most redheads. The Most Violent Year star, who now gives us mane envy every time she hits a red carpet, tells InStyle in the magazine’s January issue that the famously frizzy-haired, carrot-topped moppet was her style inspiration once upon a time.
