Jessica Chastain was a beauty in black at the National Board of Review Awards in New York this week. She wore a classic style Alexander McQueen embellished black dress with a seasonal twist; sleeveless with gold detailing around the neckline, this LBD is the perfect amount of understated sophistication and glamour- nice work Jess! And as if the eye-catching neckline wasn’t enough Jessica’s mid-length, body-con frock created a lean and sexy look and accentuated her slight curves. The actress’ simple but glamorous accessorising of a matching gold bracelet and black peep-toe shoes was spot on too as she posed for the eager paparazzi. If you like Jessica’s look the Hedonia Alex LBD is a perfect match. And rather than splashing out on a McQueen design, Team LBD recommend investing in a statement necklace which will update your LBD and endless other outfit combinations. Finish your look with a small purse to add ladylike charm and you’re as red carpet ready as the lady herself.
