I think Jessica Chastain is among the most beautiful in Hollywood. Her unconventional features really stand out among a crowd of blue-eyed blonds. Technically, while she’s an American, Jessica is actually part Spanish, Greek, British, German, French, Irish, and Scottish. I guess this party explains why she is such a stunner. Her alabaster skin, gorgeous red hair, and green eyes make her one rare beauty. She actually reminds me of those red-haired heroines in romance novels.

Speaking of Jessica, as you know, she is also quite the fashion plate and enjoys dressing up. In fact, the actress was spotted out shopping with her boyfriend, Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, in New York on Wednesday.

For the outing, Jessica wore a gorgeous blue fit n’ flare frock that came detailed with a low sweetheart neckline to display a bit of her creamy chest. She kept her signature red hair tied in a pony tail, then finished the dress with a mini Givenchy purse and a pair of bi-colored ankle-strap sandals with block heels. The shoes weren’t exactly the most ladylike given the chunky heels, but she surprisingly made them look demure.

How do you like Jessica’s street style? She looks very polished and put together. Can you appreciate? Or do you prefer your style grunge and laid back?

If you wish to recreate her look, simply grab a ladylike dress and finish it off with chunky ankle strap sandals. Here’s a pretty frock from Eliza J that will do the trick:

For sandal choices, here are three affordable options to consider. For the Eliza J dress above, go with the “Justice” sandals from Charles by Charles David. The mix of colors and textures in the Justice (sandals) make them the perfect shoes to complement the floral Eliza J. dress.
