Jessica Chastain is style puzzle

Jessica Chastain is like a "math equation" to dress, according to her stylist.

The red-headed beauty always looks flawless, especially when the spotlight is on her for awards ceremonies.

The American actress favours European designers, which can mean some globetrotting for celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart.

"I will have to travel to fittings for sure," she told WWD.

"It's like a math equation."

This year, Jessica could be on track for a Golden Globes award, as she is nominated in the best actress category for her role in Zero Dark Thirty.

Last year the star stunned in a gorgeous silver Givenchy dress, covered in pearls.

Elizabeth will have to pick something equally show-stopping for this year's event to ensure the 35-year-old continues to top best-dressed lists.

A-list stylist Cristina Ehrlich dresses the likes of Amy Adams and Tina Fey and is aware the pressure is well and truly on with the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards coming up.

Certain stylists with high-profile clients are let in on the hottest upcoming designs before they hit the runway to ensure they stay ahead of the fashion pack.

"I've had a sense for the last two months of which girls I work with who would most likely be attending the Globes, SAG [Screen Actors Guild] Awards, etc.," Cristina revealed.

"Partly why I moved from Los Angeles to New York has been to cultivate relationships with designers so that I can plant the seed throughout the year and get a sense of who wants to work with whom so that out of the gate we can work directly with a designer to make it a seamless, high-end experience that's exclusive. I've seen some sketches in the last week and some relate to pre-fall collections, which often play into fall, while others are from capsule collections that are more representative of red-carpet season rather than a runway collection."
