With a hot new movie and an acclaimed Broadway show, Jessica Chastain has a lot to celebrate this season. And now she has another accolade: she’s this week’s best dressed star!

More than 16,000 of you gave Chastain’s simple, elegant ensemble — a peplum dress and Casadei sandals, worn to a Zero Dark Thirty screening in N.Y.C. — some love, propelling her into the top spot on our best dressed list. Chastain finished her look with natural makeup, minimal jewels and a flawless blowout.


Coming in second was another fashion favorite, the Duchess of Cambridge, who wore a forest-green Alexander McQueen dress (with a sexy thigh-high split!) for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards in London — her first public outing since her recent hospitalization.

It’s just a simple black dress. There’s so many other amazing choices, but don’t get me wrong, Jessica looks beautiful.

This is ‘best dressed’ for the week? Nothing great about this outfit. It’s okay to me, that’s all.

Black dress, black shoes and she’s the best dressed? Love her as an actress but I don’t think she’s a style icon or anything.

Meh. She doesn’t look bad but I certainly wouldn’t have picked her as “Best Dressed”. I thought Kate Middleton looked much more stylish.

A spray tan, something, ANYTHING to give her some color would go a LONG way! Gee, she looks like a vampire.

Becca on

I think she looks beatiful. She is definately the best dressed this week. She should keep it up

gd on

She won because she is the current “It” girl.
