Jessica Chastain is an Oscar nominee, fashion plate, and, let’s face it, enviable redhead! So when she chatted with InStyle for our March issue‘s “Beauty Talk,” we had to ask her one very important question—is it natural? “Yes, and as a child I didn’t like it because it made me different. But as I grew older and more comfortable, it became a badge of honor,” she said. The actress revealed that when a role calls for a different hue—like when she went blonde for The Help—she always wigs it. But if she did make a change, she’d do a major one: “I’d go in a completely opposite direction: Gwen Stefani platinum!” Bombshell!

Nina Dobrev Says What We’re All Thinking: She’s Looking Forward to Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscars Red Carpet MomentFeb 24, 2013 @ 3:00 pm
Thirty minutes after getting off a plane from Atlanta, Nina Dobrev hit the beachside red carpet at the Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica—there to support her Best First Feature-winning film The Perks of Being a Wallflower—looking perfectly polished in a Michael Kors shorts and embellished tank ensemble. Not far away was Jennifer Lawrence, clad in Lanvin, and Dobrev told us Lawrence is the one person she’s most looking forward to seeing on the Oscars red carpet. “I think she’s going to win, so I’d love to know what the Best Actress is going to be wearing!” Dobrev told InStyle.com. “Her whole attitude is very unapologetic. That’s cool. That’s how it should be. A confident woman is the most attractive woman.” With the red carpet just hours away—who are you most looking forward to seeing?

Andy Samberg had all eyes on him yesterday when he hosted the Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, and for such an important moment—his intro was hilarious, as to be expected—he teamed up his “fashion advice giver” stylist Sam Spector to get his look just right. “I feel more like Rod Stewart than Robert Pattinson,” the host joked of his outfit, which combined a David Hart suit (in Color of the Year emerald green), Thomas Pink shirt, and Piaget cufflinks. What’s his secret to looking so dapper? “My dapper is on my body!” he said. “I transport the dapper onto my body and then I usher it through the carpet area.” Nice work! Seth McFarlane, are you listening?
