Jessica Chastain was effortlessly radiant in a white ensemble as she arrived at Live With Kelly And Mark in New York City on Monday.
The Help actress, 46, who stunned in a floral suit in celebration of the Drama League Awards, flashed a cheerful smile while strolling into the building to chat with hosts Kelly Ripa and husband, Mark Consuelos, in an episode that will air on May 25.
The Oscar winner looked incredibly ageless wearing a sleeveless, fitted white dress that was made from floral-embellished, lace material.
A thin, white belt helped accentuate her slim waist and the star slipped into a pair of nude-colored heels to complete her overall ensemble for the day.
Her reddish locks were parted in the middle, and flowed down naturally past her shoulders in light curls.
Wow! Jessica Chastain, 46, was effortlessly radiant in a white ensemble as she arrived at Live With Kelly And Mark in New York City on Monday
The Eyes Of Tammy Faye actress opted to not wear any pieces of flashy jewelry to allow the dress to be the main focal point.
Jessica’s makeup was glammed up, and comprised of a layer of mascara to her lashes along with a shimmering, bronze shadow around her eyes.
A light pink blush was added to her cheekbones for a radiant glow while a rosy, satin tint was worn on her lips.
The star has been keeping busy by tackling the leading role of Nora in the hit Broadway play, A Doll’s House, which has earned a total of six Tony nominations, including Best Actress for Chastain.
The show, which is based on the 1879 play of the same name written by Henrik Ibsen, comes to an end later next month on June 10.
Jessica is no stranger to the Broadway stage, and also appeared in the play titled, The Heiress, in 2012, alongside other celebrities such as Dan Stevens.
During an interview with NBC’s Sunday Today earlier this month, the mother of two opened up about her passion of the theater and starring in A Doll’s House. ‘It’s exhausting, but also invigorating,’ she gushed.
‘I love doing theater. It’s what I first wanted to do. I was so excited by the opportunity-the idea that I could live in New York City and do theater. I feel so excited after a performance. I’m so exhausted but I can’t even take a nap…I have too much adrenaline.’

The star discussed how she discovered her passion early on in her life, and told host, Willie Geist, ‘Once I started taking drama class, then I was…’ The host completed her thoughts by adding, ‘Those were your people.’
Jessica, who recently went platinum blonde for the MET Gala earlier this month, then humorously recalled, ‘I would like, skip school to read Shakespeare in my car. I mean, that’s not something that someone should be doing.’
Chastain, who tied the knot with Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo in 2017, previously talked about stepping back into the world of theater while making an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
When asked what ‘Broadway meant to her,’ the George & Tammy star recalled recording the Tony Awards when she was a kid, and how she would ‘play it back all throughout the year.’
‘I remember watching when Ralph Fiennes won-I believe he won a Tony for playing Hamlet on Broadway.’
‘I don’t know, I just imagined this other life that I was going to have, and so to be here just feels like, it sounds cheesy, what this little girl was imagining is now manifested,’ the Interstellar star expressed.
While continuing to embrace her passion for the stage, Jessica will still appear on the big screen once again alongside Anne Hathaway in the upcoming film called, Mother’s Instinct.

The project is a remake of Oliver Masset-Depasse’s 2018 thriller of the same name and follows the premise of two 60s housewives whose lives are altered after a tragedy. With the movie still in its post-production stages, a set premiere date has yet to be announced.
However, fans will have a chance to see Jessica soon at the upcoming 76th Annual Tony Awards which will be held on June 11. Aside from receiving a nomination for Best Actress in a play, A Doll’s House also garnered five additional nods, such as Best Play Revival and Best Direction.
When talking to The Hollywood Reporter after hearing the news of her nomination, she revealed to the outlet whether she planned to continue stage work or not.
‘I already told my agent, Joe Machota, I want to do a play at least every other year. I don’t want to be away from the theater any more. I love it so much.’
