Jessica Chastain has worn pieces by not one, but two Lebanese designers as part of the It Chapter Two press tour, donning gowns by both Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad.

For the Los Angeles premiere of the movie on Monday, August 26, the American actress wore a rich green dress by Murad. Then, at the European premiere on Monday, September 2, the Zero Dark Thirty star wore a piece by Saab.

The first gown, a bejewelled emerald green piece, complemented Chastain's colouring perfectly. She paired the Zuhair Murad couture gown with Piaget jewels.

A week later, the star wore an Elie Saab gown for the film's European premiere in London.

The black lace gown was topped off with just a bold red lip and vintage Hollywood curls. The premiere had an autumnal feel, with fallen leaves on the ground, so the darker look fitted in with its seasonal surroundings perfectly.

Horror movie It Chapter Two is out in UAE cinemas now. A follow-up to 2017's It, based on Stephen King's 1986 novel of the same name, the movie stars Chastain with James McAvoy and Bill Hader.

The film checks in with the Losers Club 27 years since their first encounter with the terrifying clown, Pennywise. The friends have grown up, drifted apart and moved away, but a phone call brings them back to Derry to face another devastating series of events.
