Joining many of her Tinseltown contemporaries, Jessica Chastain attended the 2012 Met Ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City tonight (May 7).
Clad in a fabulous blue Louis Vuitton dress with jewels from Harry Winston, the “Help” hottie was the picture of perfection as she entered Costume Institute Gala for the exciting evening ahead.
The annual fete finds actress Carey Mulligan acting as honorary co-chair alongside designer Miuccia Prada and US Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, while Azealia Banks is lined up to perform.
As for the celebratory occasion, this year's rendition of the Met gala ushers in the 'Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations' exhibition exploring "the striking affinities between Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada, two Italian designers from different eras."
The display is described as being "inspired by Miguel Covarrubias's "Impossible Interviews" for Vanity Fair in the 1930s while featuring "orchestrated conversations between these iconic women to suggest new readings of their most innovative work."
