Jessica Chastain should get some serious risk taking points for the beautiful, yet daring, Marios Schwab dress that she wore to the 2012 Tony Awards last night.
The 35-year-old actress was a presenter during the ceremony, and arrived at the Beacon Theatre with a Broadway-bright smile as her body was engulfed in a swarm of sparkling Swarovski crystal-embroidered embellishments.
This nude dress, from Schwab’s Fall 2012 collection, left little to the imagination in the bust area, and I could see many starlets being afraid of attempting this look on the red carpet without lining — but Jess really went for it.
I find myself wishing she had lined it, but I know the feel of the dress would have been officially lost at that point, and as one of my favorite looks from the collection, I would have been questioning that as well.
Because of her vibrant red hair, Jess looked like a mermaid. In fact, a close friend of mine said “She’s Ariel, but forgot her seashells”. She couldn’t be more right.
Jessica finished off her look with open toe, double platform silver satin pumps by Giuseppe Zanotti with a skinny ankle strap. She should have definitely wore sandals.
This is definitely one of those looks you either love or you hate, so tell me your thoughts…
