Jessica Chastain: 'Red carpet comfort is a must'

Jessica Chastain is all about glamour now she's left her tomboy days behind.

Jessica Chastain ends up looking "miserable" on the red carpet if she wears a dress she isn't comfortable with.

The Interstellar actress is a regular at showbiz events and always stuns in designer outfits, such a strapless black and silver Prabal Gurung dress at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awards on Monday (06Jun16). But regardless of how fabulous her ensemble is, comfort is the key to looking good for Jessica.

“I just want to wear something that I’m comfortable with," she told "I find even that if someone does something to my hair or my make-up or I’m wearing a dress that I’m uncomfortable with, I look at the pictures and I look miserable."

The 39-year-old previously acknowledged that her style has changed over the years, but one thing that has remained constant is her desire to take risks. With her star status Jessica is able to experiment with fashion even more, as she has her choice of countless high-end pieces.

“I love glamour, I’m all about it," she smiled. "I was a tomboy as a kid, and I didn’t go to my prom, so this is like everything to me. The fact that I get to wear these fancy outfits in my career is like making up for the whole thing.”

With all the gowns Jessica has donned in the spotlight, one may think it's impossible for her to pick a favourite. However the flame-haired beauty previously shared one of her most-loved looks, citing her gold and black Alexander McQueen gown worn at the 2012 Academy Awards, where she was nominated for her role in The Help.

“It was magnificent," she previously told the Editorialist of the outfit. "It was the dress of my life. That moment, it was the biggest dream I ever had, and here I was up for an Oscar, and I was wearing this dress that I felt was able to match the expanse of feelings I had.”
