She may not have won an Oscar, but Jessica Chastain still had a pretty impressive start to 2013. The Zero Dark Thirty actress nabbed a Golden Globe Award and even appeared on Broadway in The Heiress as she delighted the fashion faithful in a variety of fantastic street style ensembles. Jessica also managed to make an impact on the red carpet during award season, wearing truly standout gowns by everyone from Alexander McQueen to Armani Privé.

Jessica definitely pulled out all the stops for the Oscars decked out in this custom neutral embellished Armani Privé strapless gown. Harry Winston jewelry and Christian Louboutin heels were the perfect finishing touches. After the busy award season came to a close, the star headed to Paris to take in several of this month's Fall 2013 shows. At the Saint Laurent presentation, Jessica made a statement in a red vintage wrap dress from the newly renamed fashion house styled with Christian Louboutin Pigaresille pumps.
We're pretty positive there will be more award show red carpets in Jessica's future and can't wait to see what she'll wear the next time she's nominated.
