LOOK OF THE DAY: JESSICA CHASTAIN

CANNES, France - Ivory-skinned, red-head beauty Jessica Chastain looked like an ethereal Roman goddess for the “Foxcatcher” premiere at Cannes in a gown by Elie Saab.

The asymmetrical, one-shoulder, silk couture gown - in on-trend purple - fluttered and turned elemental as the French Riviera wind picked up, showing off the beauty of the delicate ruffles.

Taken from the haute couture spring-summer 2014, Lebanese designer Saab shows he’s lost none of his talent with the va-va-voom traffic stoppers. And Chastain worked the carpet - and the wind - with grace.

The 28-year-old star plays Jerome, a chauffeur and would-be actor, in David Cronenberg’s latest film “Maps to the Stars,” which premiered Monday at Cannes. In it, he has a romp with the desperate Julianne Moore character in a car.

And it comes just two years after he filmed a sex scene with the 50-year-old Juliette Binoche in a limousine in Cronenberg’s last film “Cosmopolis.”

Quizzed by journalists on the dubious habit, he rated the respective performance of his co-stars.

“Both(are) like 7s. I’m joking. Obviously Julianne. It was a wonderful experience. It was extremely sweaty,” he said.

“It’s sublime,” retorted Moore, 53.
