Photo Evidence That Jessica Chastain Is One Of Those Fairy Dolls You Had In Third Grade

"Foxcatcher" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Does anyone else remember Sky Dancers, those awesome fairy dolls that would fly around the room after you wound them up? It’s possible that I’ve spent the last twenty minutes watching old commercials on YouTube and mouthing along with the the child actresses. (“She looks like a dancing star!”) Anyway, I’m so grateful to Jessica Chastain for wearing an amazing purple dress to the premiere of Foxcatcher at the Cannes Film Festival, because not only does she look flawless, but she looks exactly like one of those vintage dolls.

First, reacquaint yourself with the majesty of Sky Dancers. Mega hotties. I’m pretty sure I had the black girl with the blue hair.

Now get a load of Jessica’s killer gown. She always looks great, but this is one of her best looks yet. (It’s from the Elie Saab Spring 2014 Couture collection, for those curious!)

How could you possibly deny the uncanny resemblance? They both have show-stopping hair, they both know how to rock lavender, and they sure know how to pose. I wonder if they’d consider working together on a film project?

It’s impossible to decide who wore this purple dress better, so we’ll give the award to Jessica. As cute as they were, Sky Dancers were also lethal. If you grew up in the ’90s, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve had a plastic fairy wing cut out of your hair, and I guarantee those things produced more than one black eye. Jessica Chastain is pretty badass herself (Zero Dark Thirty, anyone?), but she doesn’t peg me as the type to beat up a child with her wings. I think that’s reason enough to let her win this fashion face-off.

      You’re right, the resemblance is uncanny! Also, Jessica Chastain should wear more purple. I never see too much purple on the red carpet, but it’s a perfect color for her skin tone and hair color, she totally pulls it off!

      They definitely need to create a limited edition Jessica Chastain Sky Dancer. I love that color purple on her, amazing.
