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!

You gotta hand it to Jessica Chastain. Even when she’s posing for weird photo shoots in some creepy abandoned woods, she still knows how to pull off a dress.

Such was the case at the 2013 Giffoni Film Festival on Sunday, where the two-time Oscar-nominated beauty (why did she lose to Jennifer Lawrence? Why?) arrived in a red stunning dress by Dolce & Gabbana. The look was so flawless, we went ahead and named her the best dressed star of the week.

Who else looked good this week? Check out more from the ladies – plus a special appearance by a red-hot man – in the gallery, above.
