Jessica Chastain's Oscar Gown Is For Sale On Net-A-Porter (Got $29K?)
March 12, 2012
Think of all the iconic Oscar gowns — the pink Ralph Lauren gown Gwyneth Paltrow wore when she won for Shakespeare In Love; the black and white vintage Valentino Julia Roberts famously wore for her big win 2001; the backless Guy Laroche number that Hilary Swank wore; the list goes on.
If you want to be apart of Oscar dress history — and have $29,000 lying around — you’ll be very happy to know that Net-A-Porter just put Jessica Chastain‘s Alexander McQueen Embroidered Silk-Faille and Organza Gown ($28,950) up for sale. It’s not only the perfection addition to your walk-in closet, but what makes this baroque-appliquéd gown different is that the bottom half is made of layers-upon-layers of silk organza, which makes it more lightweight than the original red carpet version.
For those that can’t afford the $29K price tag on a (literally) red-carpet worthy piece, then we suggest a Maria Lucia Hohan mint green gown worn by Maria Menounos, which is only a tiny percentage of McQueen’s cost at $1,122.
