Jessica Chastain has arrived at the 94th Academy Awards dripping in glamour and sophistication, just as expected.

The actress stepped onto the red carpet in whimsical Gucci gown with a sequined bronze plunging neckline that faded into a sparkly iridescent lilac pleated skirt lined with ornate chiffon floral embellishments along the hem. She accessorized with blinged-out diamond drop earrings and a matching statement ring.

Her signature fiery red hair was pulled into a sleek high ponytail that complemented the bodice of the dress.

The three-time Oscars nominee is in the running for the Best Actress in a Leading Role award for her portrayal of controversial televangelist Tammy Faye in the film The Eyes of Tammy Faye. Earlier this year, Chastain took home the SAG Award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role. She was previously nominated at the Oscars for her work in both The Help and Zero Dark Thirty.

The last time Jessica made a splash like this on the red carpet was during the Venice International Film Festival with her Scenes From a Marriage co-star Oscar Isaac — we're talking about the arm kiss heard 'round the world. The actress stopped by the Today show to explain the viral moment. "We're acting, but also Oscar and I have been friends — we went to college together — so we've been friends more than half of our lives," she said. "Let me just say, though, this is a slow-motion video, and everybody is super sexy in slow motion."

Good luck to the actress tonight, and let's hope her performance as Faye was as convincing to the Academy as her and Isaac's steamy PDA moment.
