Like It Or Dump It: Jessica Chastain’s ’50s Disney Moment

Nicole Kidman's other stand-in, Jessica Chastain, hit the National Board of Review Awards Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City last night, and boy, am I confused. Jessica+Chastain+Stars+National+Board+Review+2I know it's past Christmas, and I myself endorsed the wearing of yellow only today, but the more I look at this, the less I like it. As pretty as she undoubtedly is in this Oscar De La Renta head-to-toe Spring 2013 look, it feels like a early '60s 'Betty Draper' costume. The hair and make-up are divine, but in the context of the ensemble she looks over-styled. Jessica+Chastain+Stars+National+Board+Review+1 I feel like she's promoting a Broadway production of Grease, where a Disney Princess finds herself in love with 'Danny Zuko'. Jessica+Chastain+Stars+National+Board+Review+3 Am I being overly crabby? Maybe. That much yellow is kind of an assault on the eyes this early in January. And the cobalt shoes, though fab, are too high a contrast. What do you think? Like it, or dump it?

    I’m no expert, but I just don’t think this shade of yellow goes with her skin tone.
