Cannes 2017: Jessica Chastain Style Wish List

When it was announced that Jessica Chastain as going to be sitting on the jury for the 2017 Cannes Film Festival international feature film competition I immediately dropped everything I was doing and started to compile my wishes for her to wear. Jessica first came out on the fashion scene at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival where she garnered attention of Oscar de la Renta and Zac Posen for her first moments while promoting her film Tree of Life. Since then Jessica has not slowed down one bit and has become someone who we could see as a fashion icon one day. I know that for every look be it couture gown for the premieres or off the rack for her casual looks that Jessica will deliver so many major looks over the course of the festival this year. Bellow are some of the casual look that I want to see Jessica wear while spotted out and about in the French seaside city on her way to jury deliberations and other more casual events. The first look I picked for Jessica is this Altuzarra Spring 2017 RTW ensemble which features a light blue rib skit off the shoulder long sleeve top and a floral print faux wrap pencil skirt. This look is the perfect look to wear out in a seaside resort town while you are on the job deciding what the best films are. It depends on the jury president , who this is Pedro Almadovar, as to how often the jury members will meet to discuss their thoughts on films. Last year jury president George Miller gathered his jury every day. With sat we saw that Kirsten Dunst had a great casual dress every day of the festival, so I wanted to make sure that Jessica is prepped for that this year. Following the Altuzarra look I picked this grey/blue to white ombre Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2017 draped chiffon dress. This is a breezy and feminine dress that would just perfectly fit in against the breezy setting of Cannes. I think that seeing Jessica in a Diane Von Furstenberg at some time during the festival is pretty likely and I think that a casual look would be perfect. This black and orange sleeveless, floral printed. paneled dress from the labels Pre-Fall 2017 collection would be perfect. I would imagine that Jessica will break out something from Oscar de la Renta at least once during the festival to pay homage to where she started to where she has come and I think that this white sleeveless Oscar de la Renta Spring 2017 RTW dress features a plunging V-neckline, pleated detailing, printed hem, and an eyelet fabric construction would be the perfect look for Jessica to pay that honor to the label who helped make her the fashion star that she has become. My final wish in this set is the look that I want to see Jessica wearing for the Jury welcome dinner on the eve of the festival. This red medley Zac Posen Fall 2017 RTW stitched velvet dress which features an a-line skirt, plunging neckline, and cap sleeves would be gorgeous. I love a red head in red and I think that Jessica would turn this dress into a major moment at a laid back event.
