If there’s one thing Cannes has done for us plebeians who are at home, enjoying the festivities from afar, it’s inspire our wardrobes. Or rather, inspire our *dream* wardrobes. We may not have an excuse to wear ballgowns or lavish dresses on the reg, but a girl can dream, right? If you need an example of what we’re talking about: Jessica Chastain’s fringed lilac gown at Cannes was straight out of our fashionable hearts, and now it has found its way into our dream closet.
The lavender number features everything we could want in a dress; extravagant beading, the perfect shade, a short hem, and so much fringe we literally can’t deal.
Is Jessica Chastain’s dress short or long?! Honestly, it doesn’t matter because FRINGE.
And not just any fringe, but the real deal — we’re talking the full coverage, lilac fringe of our dreams. This dress is elegant and new-age flapper all in one. And with the barely-there straps and form-fitting silhouette, Jessica looks flawless.
Thanks to her long, red hair being pin-straight and sleek, and the most delicate shimmering earrings, Jessica took this look to the next level. Can we just wear this everyday?! She looks like feather duster from Beauty and the Beast, you know, if the duster were drop-dead FABULOUS.
The details in this dress are amazing, and paired with Jessica’s rosy makeup, the color scheme of this ensemble is so totally spring, and we’ll be copying it all season long.
