Jessica Chastain Oscars Dress 2013 Photo

Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain done proved me wrong! I could've sworn she'd show up in a bold spring color, but she chose a bejeweled Armani Prive dress in a color that can only be described as "nude." She looks effortlessly lovely, though, and channels some serious old-world Hollywood glamour with her wavy, side-swept Veronica Lake hair, porcelain skin and deep crimson lips. The Los Angeles Times called it possibly "her best red carpet look yet." I don't know if I agree with that statement, but I do think it's a marked improvement over last year's choice of a black-and-gold Alexander McQueen frock. Compare them below. Do you agree?
