Jessica Chastain: Academy Awards 2012 [PHOTOS]

The beautiful 30-year-old Jessica Chastain looked absolutely gorgeous in black and gold when she walked the red carpet at the Hollywood & Highland Center on Sunday (February 26th). Her lovely red locks were complimented by a strapless Alexander McQueen gown embroidered with gold beading and cascaded with a long train. She completed the ensemble with $2 million in Harry Winston jewels. 

Jessica was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Help, but unfortunately lost to the adorable Octavia Spencer.
