Jessica Chastain isn't afraid of embracing colour in her red carpet ensembles, though she does tend to avoid orange as she finds it can clash with her red hair.

Jessica Chastain styles her film costumes as well as her red carpet ensembles.

The American actress consistently wows at Hollywood events in glamorous gowns, such as the strapless lemon dress she wore to the premiere of Cafe Society at the Cannes Film Festival in May (16). But Jessica isn't happy to leave her outfit selection purely up to a stylist and likes to be involved in the choosing and accessorising all of her looks.

"I’m very involved in what I put together, even with costumes when I play a character, for everything, even the colour of my nails," she told WWD.

As an ambassador for Swiss jeweller Piaget, the 39-year-old gets first dibs on the glittering jewels she borrows to wear at various events. And it was the palm-leaf inspired diamond necklace from Piaget's Sunny Side of Life collection she wore to Cannes that Jessica cites as one of her favourite pieces to date.

"It’s very important to me, and that piece for Cannes, it’s one of my favourite pieces I’ve ever worn. The Cannes Film Festival, that’s where my career was born exactly five years ago, The Tree of Life won the Palme d’Or (film award), and there I was back there wearing this Piaget palm necklace," she shared.

Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica adds that with her red hair and alabaster skin, she tends to go for vivid colours when selecting both dresses and jewellery. And she's not afraid to wear hues which contrast with her hair, such as emerald green, from time to time.

"A lot of people are afraid of yellow but, apart from maybe orange, I don’t think there’s any colour I don’t like to wear. I like variety and maybe that’s why I do so many different kinds of films," she smiled, adding that she'll never say no to wearing elegant jewellery. "I’m into everything. I love emeralds, I love rubies, I love yellow diamonds."
