Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac’s A Most Violent Year Has Us Ready for Award Season

The race to award season is finally starting to pick up, thanks to today’s latest trailer. A Most Violent year, from director J.C. Chandor (All Is Lost, Margin Call), stars Oscar Isaac, and Jessica Chastain as an emerging power couple during the grim days of 1981 New York, surrounded by corruption and murder. At first glance, it’s like a darker, more serious sequel to American Hustle without the cleavage. Read more…

Style-wise, this week did the most. Between New York Fashion Week, the Toronto Film Festival, and, like, forty-nine movie premieres — plus Nicole Richie, just being Nicole Richie, running errands with relentlessly effortless chicness — the stars had every reason to pull out their most glam ensembles.

Jessica Chastain: WHO ARE YOU?

Jessica-who
by Meghan O’Keefe (@megsokay)

Okay, so obviously, I know who Jessica Chastain is.

She’s now a two-time Academy Award nominated actress. She’s appeared in countless popular and critically acclaimed films in the past few years (including Zero Dark Thirty, Mama, The Help, Tree of Life, and Take Shelter). And for one dark day, I was under the misconception that she was romantically involved with Tom Hiddleston.

That said, I still have no clue who Jessica Chastain is.

JESSICA CHASTAIN, WHO ARE YOU??

VH1 Style Points: Jessica Chastain, Eddie Redmayne Outshone Everyone At The Oscars

VH1 Style Points - Oscar Edition

Awards season fashion-judging is almost more fun than watching the awards themselves (definitely the case with Sunday’s flat, terribly un-PC Oscars ceremony). For your armchair fashion policing pleasure, we created a Style Points race to track how the fashions of the following high wattage stars stacked up during Awards Season: Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Eddie RedmayneAmanda Seyfried, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Chastain and Kerry Washington.

Oscars 2013: Quvenzhané Wallis Shows Off Her Adorable Puppy Purse To Jessica Chastain

QuvenzhaneJessicaChastainOscars2013

Jessica Chastain and Quvenzhané Wallis are proving that it is possible for competitors to be friends. Two of this year’s Best Actress nominees–for Zero Dark Thirty and Beasts of the Southern Wild, respectively–took a moment to hug, chat, and congratulate each other on their red carpet accessories, adding a major dose of cute to tonight’s red carpet coverage. It’s clear Jessica is eying that puppy purse Little Q is rocking so effortlessly–renamed after her own pet dog, Sammy–but perhaps she’s also expressing her excitement over today’s Annie casting news?

10 Best-Dressed At The BAFTAs Include Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain

10 Best-Dressed At 2013 BAFTA Awards

We’re fascinated by the BAFTAs for some strange reason. Maybe it’s because of our love for all things across the pond — like Victoria and David Beckham, the Royals and fish and chips. This year, the EE British Academy Film Awards (sounds more grand in full form, doesn’t it) took place at The Royal Opera House, today. Sunday, to be exact. We’re okay with the 10 best-dressed ladies on the red carpet. Were we expecting to be more in awe of the fashion? Sure. But that’s just our weekender buzz which always extends our expectations. Two stars floored is the most on this list and for totally different reasons other than being dressed awesomely. Jessica Chastain leads the way for finally getting it right. All right. As in, not even one element of her look wrong, as she normally does. She looked divine in her cobalt blue, architectural marvel of a Roland Mouret gown. Paired perfectly with Jimmy Choos and classy Harry Winston jewels. Then, there was Dame Helen Mirren, who we plain adore, and who rocked the red carpet with a pink bob. We repeat — she rocked it in a pink bob. She’s 67-years-old and she flippin’ ballered a look we couldn’t pull off. We’re loving her dove grey Nicholas Oakwell gown with the silver pashima, as well.

Anne Hathaway‘s Burberry column with the striking silver rivets all over the bodice looked fantastic. The hot pink lippie was an excellent touch, too. Marion Cotillard‘s sunshine Dior gown from Raf Simons’ Spring 2013 Couture collection could only have been pulled off by her. She wasn’t the only one in yellow. Andrea Riseborough took on Brit designer Vivivienne Westwood, wearing a saucy daffodil colored couture gown with ribbon detailing over the bodice which matched her ribbon Brian Atwood shoes. It made her look wonderfully hour-glassed, unlike Jennifer Lawrence who needs to be fed some hot stew or something. Does she still have pneumonia? The sport wore a lovely white Dior Haute Couture dress with Jimmy Choo shoes, Chopard jewelry and a Judith Leiber bag, but looked alarmingly skinny. There were also two semi-goth looks this evening. The goth element being added by black chantilly lace through Thandi Newton‘s Louis Vuitton and Amy Adams Elie Saab gowns, respectively. Alicia Vikander in a minimal Christian Dior mullet dress and Juno Temple in Stella McCartney complete the list. Have a look through the gallery for the full looks and tell us who your favorites are!

Eddie Redmayne, Jessica Chastain Shake Up Red-Carpet Competition: Awards Season Style Points

Eddie Redmayne and Jessica Chastain lead the week, according to our fashion panel

We’ll be honest, when we came up with the idea for this awards season Style Points race, we were envisioning a graph with much smoother lines. But now we realize that wouldn’t be as much fun as the crazy ups and downs Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Eddie RedmayneAmanda Seyfried, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Chastain and Kerry Washington have delivered,  in the eyes of our esteemed fashion panel. (Emma Stone has been a no-show lately; we may just drop her from the list!) This week, Yahoo! Entertainment New York bureau chief Breanne Heldman, Glamour’s online style editor Nikki Ogunnaike, and our own Ambika Muttoo and Sabrina Rojas Weiss evaluated the contestants’ Oscar nominee luncheon outfits (or, in the case of the non-nominees, outfits worn to other important events last week) and fell in love with Les Miz’s Redmayne all over again.
