In one of my favorite cocktail dresses from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection, “The Help” star Jessica Chastain hit the black carpet at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC last night for the 2011 National Board of Review Awards.

Jessica selected the black square neckline dress with the absolutely beautiful red and purple floral embroidered tea-length pocket skirt. Obviously I love, love the dress – but I can’t contain my disappointed on how it was worn.

When the dress was originally shot on Hillary Rhoda for the PF12 lookbook, the straps and bodice were smooth and a gorgeous beaded layered necklace was added to compliment it. I loved that!

Not only did Jessica opt not to wear a killed piece of neck-wear, her straps were all twisty and falling off her shoulders.

I also wasn’t the biggest fan of her messy up-do and basic strappy platform Roger Vivier sandals.

Sleek hair like she had on Tuesday night, a fun necklace, and a stand-out pair of sandals would have helped the look — but nothing would have improved it like fixing those straps.

Jessica — who posed with her co-star from “The Help, Viola Davis — finished off her awards gala look with deep berry lips and stunning ruby and diamond stud earrings.
