Giorgio Armani Prive Haute-Couture: Front Row - Jessica Chastain and Cameron Diaz

Jessica Chastain and Cameron Diaz attend the 
Giorgio Armani Prive Haute-Couture
 Spring / Summer 2012 show 

Jessica Chastain learned she had been nominated for an Oscar as best supporting actress for her role in “The Help.” Cameron Diaz, sitting beside Chastain, gave her a hug.
A shout went up from the room’s mid-section, where Chastain and Diaz were seated. As word spread throughout the grandstands at the Grand Palais, there were more shouts and cheers.
What a way to begin a fashion show. And what better place could there be for Chastain to start thinking about her red carpet gown.
Of course, in the case of Armani’s spring/summer 2012 collection, the outlook for the red carpet – and any other occasion for day or night couture – looked decidedly green, whether olive or chartreuse; whether in silks, shiny lamé or other fabrications. And for clients who prefer a greater variety of shades, several black, gray and gold fashions were included in the mix.
With their glorious textures, jewels and feathers, the fashions were decidedly elegant, too. The colors made them more of a standout.
Also among those watching the fashion parade were Olivia Palermo of “The City” and Carmen Chaplin of “All About the Benjamins.”
