Ivory-skinned, red-head beauty Jessica Chastain looked like an ethereal Roman goddess for the Foxcatcher premiere at Cannes in a gown by Elie Saab.

The asymmetrical, one-shoulder, silk couture gown — in on-trend purple — fluttered and turned elemental as the French Riviera wind picked up, showing off the beauty of the delicate ruffles.

A stiff breeze made conditions challenging for actresses walking the Cannes red carpet on Monday.

Chastain’s gown flowed more than she liked in the wind. She had to use her hands to hold down the one-shoulder dress, with its leg-baring slit, to prevent it from becoming even more revealing.

Singer Cheryl Cole faced similar struggles with her sumptuous black dress, which was above the knee in front with a long train attached.

Monday’s weather offered a cool departure from the radiant sun and warmth that previously blessed the festival. Beneath gloomy skies, it rained sporadically all day.
