Jessica Chastain Makes An Excellent Case For Wearing Bright Yellow In Winter

Jessica Chastain shrugged off a classic black ensemble in favour of a bright, beautiful Oscar de la Renta dress on Tuesday evening.

The sparkly, star-studded soiree? The 2014 National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City. The 36 year-old American actress won an NBR award last year for her role in Zero Dark Thirty and attended this year's event to support new talents.

As for the standout citron dress fresh from the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 collection - we love the neckline and the rouched, ruffle detailing on the skirt.

The blue and yellow Kenzie pumps are also from the de la Renta runway. Top marks.

As ever, Jessica kept her makeup understated with a subtle smoky eye and glossy red lip. The hair was swept up into a messy bun - nothing too slick, just light and ladylike.

Man, she just gets it right every time. Take a look through this gallery all about the gorgeous redhead:
