I just read this and she comes across as so sweet. I know she can act but I'm a full stan now. Love her comments about fashion.

Jessica has just done a spread for W Magazine
http://www.wmagazine.com/fashion/201...ure-ss#slide=1

I can only speak for myself here, but I think these pics are absurd.

Jessica usually looks astonishingly lovely in most of her photos,
so why is she now dabbling in conceptual arty-farty stuff?











I hope this is a one-off gig, coz I feel she'll be tossing her credibility out the window if she persists with pics with nose-rings and with her hair standing on end.

Actually the people at W simply re-interpretated the hair styles from the couture shows. There's nothing artsy or pretentious. For example you can see that she's wearing the mohawk from Chanel and the Givenchy hairstyle with the couture jewelry.

Hi Wolkfolk.

I've read every comment in the Bai Ling thread. Most fashion Spot members are having the time of their lives poking fun at Bai's fashion choices. And yeah, I agree, Bai Ling really does have an extremely bizarre fashion sense.

When 'stylist' Edward Enninful presents even more ridiculously absurd styles than Bai Ling could ever dream up (consequent resulting with the lovely Jessica Chastain looking plain stupid)... then we are supposed to stand in awe at his creative artistry.

When, in fact, Enninfu's apologists are simply admiring the Emperor's New Clothes.

Oh TFS, from the ridiculous to the sublime and back again.
Who is the dress in the second pic by?

I'm more concerned about the dress in the first pic I posted, misspistol,
it would obviously be much better suited for a horse !!!

This hideous 'dress' is light years removed from her beautifully elegant Grammy gown.


easy... Justin

Lighten up, it's an editorial. It's meant to be exaggerated and I'm sure she had fun dressing up. As someone else mentioned, the hairstyles appear to be exact replicas of the runway ones.

Hi LolaSvelt

"Exact replicas" or not...

Designers are supposed to enhance the model and, more importantly, maintaintain credibility in the fashion world. But as is clearly observed, Jessica Chastain was made to look like a complete idiot with her hair standing on end and wearing a totally stupid nose ring.

I'm not against inovative desigers creating new and daring styles... nor do I disaprove of avante garde stylists pushing the envelope. But when these so-called 'designers' present to us 'absurdity' in the name of of fashion, then yeah, that's where we must drawn a line.

Else the fashion world can wave goodbye to its credibility.



easy... Justin
