Jessica Chastain, is that really you? The actor made the ultimate transformation at the 2023 Met Gala, ditching her signature bright red hair for an eye-catching platinum blonde. Seriously, I had to do multiple double takes to make sure it was really her!
The actor debuted her new bright blonde hair on the red carpet at the highly-anticipated May event, pairing it with a strapless black gown, sheer black gloves and some Karl Lagerfeld-worthy black sunglasses for the ultimate impact. In place of Chastain’s copper red waves was super sleek, nearly white-blonde hair worn parted in the middle and down her back with just a hint of soft wave at the ends.
It remains to be seen if this is a permanent change or just a wig, but despite the fact that she’s nearly unrecognizable with the blonde hair, it is a great look on Chastain. The Oscar winner also swapped her usual red lipstick for a super pale peachy nude to further drive home the transformation.
