Jessica Chastain‘s got the blues!

The actress wore azure yet again at Instyle and HFPA‘s annual Toronto International Film Festival party hosted by Salvatore Ferragamo (whom she repped with her black pumps) on Monday night.

Looking fancy in a cool blue Dolce & Gabbana frock with lace accents, the 36-year-old hopefully got some quality time with members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

After all, the Golden Globes are only a few short months away!

It’s never too early to get yourself on the voters’ good sides!

Jessica Chastain is back and totally on her A-game lately!

The ravishing redhead had a blue moment earlier in the week, but while coming and going from the Trump Hotel in Toronto on Tuesday, she gave other colors a fighting chance.

Jess’s first look was a nude Dolce & Gabbana sheath dress with glittery silver trim along the neckline, and while there’s always a danger of looking washed out in nude, the actress was radiant!

The second time she stepped out of her hotel, the 36-year-old was extra festive in a canary yellow shift paired with white Louboutin pumps.

It’s good to see you again (and again and again), Jessica!

If you’re in Milan this weekend, you may want to cancel your shopping plans. Or just hit up the Gucci boutique instead of Dolce & Gabbana!

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have closed their boutiques in Milan from July 19 to July 21 because they’re mad as hell and they’re not gonna take it anymore!

The designers have shuttered their nine (!) individual stores in the city in order to express their “indignation” at the Councillor for Commerce Franco D’Alfonso‘s negative remarks regarding the pair’s recent tax problems.

D’Alfonso reportedly said that the designers should not be allowed to show their 2014 collections in Milan since they were found guilty of tax evasion last month because, “We don’t need to be represented by tax evaders.”

Ouch!

And even though D’Alfonso apologized for his comments, saying that they were “not given in an interview, but extrapolated from an informal conversation,” Dolce and Gabbana are still offended and will keep their stores closed all weekend long.

But, yay, three-day weekend for all the employees!

Read the designers’ full statement…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

We are no longer willing to suffer the charges unjust by the Guardia di Finanza and Italian Revenue Agency, the attacks of the prosecutors and the media pillory to which we have been subjected to for years. This is not only for ourselves, but also for all those who work with us.

Finally, outraged at how we were treated by the City of Milan, we decided to close the shops of the city (nine financial centers) for the next three days starting today.We were born in Milan and to this city we have always been grateful. We must say, however, that in the last thirty years’ in this city we also have given so much back: prestige and international visibility, jobs and economic development.

In our Milan shops alone we employe more than 250 people, who in the coming days will be paid regularly, although the activity will be closed. Despite our passion and the sense of responsibility which will lead us to continue to work with dedication and willingness, we declare that we bare tired of the constant defamation and insults that are taking away serenity from our work and are turning us away from our true work as designers.

We are fortunate to work with people of true and rare excellence, both from the techincal and professional point of view, and in terms of human values, who firmly believe in us and for which all of this is discouraging. The closure of our boutoques in Milan is a sign of our disdain.

Sure, they’ll lose some money, but really, it’s the PRINCIPLE of the matter!

Ooh, Lea Michele seems to be getting into the holiday spirit!

The Glee starlet attended L’Oreal ParisWomen of Worth event held in NYC on Tuesday night, rockin’ a lacy red Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Her stunning number featured tonal Swarovski crystals along the sleeves and bodice, which glistened every time Lea moved.

She styled her standout ensem simply with a pair of black Christian Louboutin pumps and small stud earrings, but it was her smile we lurved the most!

There’s not one thing we’d change about this! Flawless, Lea, flawless!

scarlett johansson the one desire

Okay, ScarJo, that’ll do.

Though it’s blatantly obvious that the peeps at Dolce & Gabbana lurrrrrve themselves some Scarlett Johansson, we’ve grown a bit tired of the blonde bombshell in their ad campaigns.

The 28-year-old has been the go-to model for the brand’s beauty line for over two years, and we’ve had our fill.

Alas, seems like there’s nothing we can do about it as the actress has just scored herself yet another campaign for the Italian label, and this time it’s for a new fragrance called The One Desire.

The ad, shot by Terry Richardson, features Scarlett in a typical come-hither pose, and though she looks great, she just doesn’t inspire us to drop cash anymore.

A new face, like Bond girl B r nice Marlohe or glamazon Christina Hendricks, would be a welcome change.

Do you hear that, Domenico and Stefano?
