Jessica Chastain's favourite red carpet look

Jessica Chastain's favourite red carpet dress is the black and gold Alexander McQueen gown she wore to the 2012 Oscars.

The 38-year-old wore the stunning designer dress for the awards ceremony - where she was nominated in the Best Actress category for 'Zero Dark Thirty - and Jessica called it "the dress of my life".

She told the Editorialist: "It was magnificent. It was the dress of my life. That moment, it was the biggest dream I ever had, and here I was up for an Oscar, and I was wearing this dress that I felt was able to match the expanse of feelings I had."

Jessica also revealed she is drawn to the "artistry" of an outfit and likes to have an emotional connection to her clothing.

She explained: "Usually it's about an emotion. It's really hard to describe, it's like describing a painting, you just know what it makes you feel. When I see a show or a collection, I am really drawn to the artistry of the outfit. I don't think about it in terms of X + Y = Z or any logical way, I think of it more from an emotional place. It's about how it makes me feel."
