Own Jessica Chastain’s Gorgeous Oscar Dress!
Still coveting Jessica Chastain’s Alexander McQueen Oscar look? It can be yours, thanks to the wonder that is Net-A-Porter!
It may have been a little polarizing (we happened to love it, but that’s just us), but there’s no denying that Jessica Chastain’s Oscar gown this year was a statement-maker. A custom creation by Sarah Burton of Royal Wedding dress fame for Alexander McQueen, the silk-faille gown featured gold bullion embroidery. Talk about a dress worth a million bucks!
Well, maybe not a million—but $28,5000 still ain’t nothin’ to sneeze at. If, however, you do have that sort of money just lying around (in which case, we envy you), you can now snag Jessica’s Oscar dress for yourself! Available on Net-A-Porter, this version may be a tiny bit different from Jessica’s, but it’s no less gorgeous. The site describes the dress as follows:
“Crafted with a couture-like sensibility, Alexander McQueen’s silk-faille gown is a magnificent showcase for the brand’s breathtakingly unique aesthetic. Tumbling tiers of silk-organza create a silhouette that is both dramatic and undeniably elegant, and the intricate gold embroidery and embellishment is even more beautiful up close. A neat clutch and earrings are the only additions you’ll need to complete an unforgettable evening look.”
Here, take a look:
Though the embroidery on Jessica’s gown trailed all the way down the front, on this one, it stops at the bodice; furthermore, the skirt is a little fuller and made of clouds of organza, whereas Jessica’s was more streamlined. However, both dresses feature black silk-faille, gold and bronze sequin embellishment, a sweetheart neckline, and a built-in corset—no special underpinnings required!
Of course, to complete the look, you’ll need $2 million worth of Harry Winston yellow diamonds, but hey, who’s counting?
