Talk about saving the best till last.

Jessica Chastain turned heads at the closing ceremony of the Shanghai Film Festival last night in a sweeping midnight blue gown, complete with encrusted waistbelt Angelina Jolie-esque thigh-high split.

The 36-year-old actress is renowned for her demure red-carpet style, so the veering-on-risque gown is a departure, albeit a welcome one, for the Zero Dark Thirty star. There's nothing like a style switch-up to keep us interested.

Jessica kept the rest of her look simple and signature, complementing her auburn tresses with a red lip and adding height in the form of silver strappy heels. If you're after inspiration for your next black-tie event, this ensemble is the perfect lesson in how to create a buzz with added sophistication.
