Yesterday, the Oscar-nominated actress sat front row at the Givenchy fall/winter 2013 ready-to-wear show in a daring ensemble. Not only did she straighten out her usually wavy hair, displaying a dramatic but elegant new look around her face, but she also upped the ante by wearing black trousers with sheer, leafy gold-lace paneling in her upper-thigh region that looked slightly reminiscent of a high-end sarong. She paired the skin-revealing pants with a satin top, menswear-inspired single-button blazer, and single-strap heels. While we applaud Chastain’s bold look, we wonder: Is she trying to make “sheer thigh” the new “side boob”?
