We’re totally into Jessica Chastain‘s cover for T Magazine‘s summer fashion and beauty issue. That lipstick!
Photographer Cass Bird shot the actress at Universal Studios, and the results are really fun. We also happen to love her fancy frocks from the likes of Balenciaga, Céline, and Burberry.
Inside the issue, Chastain tells Lynn Yaeger about filming The Help (“We drank moonshine and had huge dance parties. I ate a lot of fried food. I had to gain 15 pounds for the role.”) and her newfound fame (“Yesterday I had my portrait taken for the Academy. The photographer told me he shot Rita Hayworth! For the rest of my life, I am ‘the Oscar-nominated Jessica Chastain’.”)
However, Chastain says that she wasn’t always fashionable:
“Growing up, a big expense was a fashion magazine…I got $100 for clothes at the beginning of the year, and I had to be very careful about what pieces would last — I bought thrift and vintage…I was awkward. I looked like a boy when I was 8 years old — lanky with short red hair. You know that book Ramona the Pest? I felt like that.”
Yep, we’ve been there. Check out Chastain’s spread below:
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
