Jessica Chastain, actress in "The Tree of Life" appeared on the red carpet in a black and gold gown accompanied by her grandmother.
Although Jessica Chastain may not have been named "Best Dressed" by critics, Twitter users all seemed to agree that she outranked Michelle Williams, Emma Stone, and even Miss Piggy. The actress herself said, the gown was one that she grew up with in her dreams. Chastain wore a black McQueen dress embellished with heavy gold beads.
"There was something about the embroidery of this dress," Chastain told The Hollywood Reporter. "It felt larger than life -- and this is a larger-than-life moment. I always wanted to be an actor. Most little girls dream of their wedding dresses; I grew up dreaming of my Oscar dress."
Chastain's gown however, is not the only thing that drew attention to the actress. For her date, Chastain decided to bring her grandmother to the red carpet. "I'm getting to see it through her eyes, and it's making the whole thing so much sweeter," she said. "All her friends are watching at home."
Chastain revealed that she was proud to have her grandmother by her side. "I am so proud," Chastain told E! News' Ryan Seacrest. "You just can't believe how big and tall I am right now."
After winning the pre-Oscar's show, Chastain was also nominated as supporting actress for her role in "The Help." Others nominated were Berenice Bejo for "The Artist", Octavia Spencer for "The Help", Melissa McCarthy for "Bridesmaids" and Janet McTeer for "Albert Nobbs."
Chastain lost out to her co-star Octavia Davis for the win. She also appeared in another Oscar nominated movie, "The Tree of Life" for which Brad Pitt was nominated as "Best Actor."
