She’s graced the most prestigious red carpets, impeccably dressed in coveted designs meticulously curated by her partner in fashion, Elizabeth Stewart. Now, Vestiaire Collective offers fashion enthusiasts the chance to own a piece of Jessica Chastain’s wardrobe through a special closet sale. This initiative marks a strategic move to expand Vestiaire’s footprint in the United States, the largest market for the Paris-based pre-owned fashion platform, which also maintains offices in London, Berlin, Hong Kong, and Lisbon.

Marie-Christin Oebel, Vestiaire’s chief marketing officer, highlighted the significance of this collaboration, stating, “It helps us supercharge our marketing efforts in the U.S. Our partnership with Jessica and Elizabeth embodies the essence of slow fashion, encouraging consumers to embrace rewear, resale, and mindful consumption.”

Vestiaire, valued at $1 billion, recently made waves by banning over 30 fast fashion brands from its platform, prioritizing sustainability and unique, high-quality fashion with intriguing backgrounds. Oebel expressed enthusiasm over the positive response received, emphasizing the importance of fostering awareness about sustainable fashion practices. 

The sale features a curated selection of red carpet and street-style ensembles from renowned designers such as Gucci, Roksanda, Stella McCartney, and Off-White, among others. Highlights include the Carolina Herrera dress Chastain wore to the premiere of “The Good Nurse,” a Dries van Noten velvet burgundy dress showcased on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” and a sleek black Cong Tri Spring 2024 dress worn to the premiere of her latest film, “Memory.” 

Chastain, an Academy Award-winning actress and producer, expressed her attachment to these garments, stating, “I’ve worn these pieces during significant moments in my life, and I appreciate the craftsmanship that went into making them. I love that Vestiaire Collective is transforming the fashion industry for a more sustainable future, and I'm delighted that these items will find a second new life.” 

This collaboration underscores Vestiaire’s track record of partnering with celebrities, having previously hosted closet sales with Emma Watson and Kim Kardashian. The platform is also featuring items from Elizabeth Stewart's personal collection, including pieces worn by Hollywood stars like Cate Blanchett and Julia Roberts.

While the sale primarily targets the U.S. market, customers worldwide can access Chastain’s curated selection. With Vestiaire’s recent investments in its U.S. team and the introduction of no selling fees, the platform aims to enhance its appeal to American consumers seeking a global assortment of unique fashion pieces.

As Vestiaire continues to weave French elegance into the fabric of U.S. fashion culture, Oebel remains optimistic about the platform’s growth potential, asserting, “We’re really at the beginning of realizing the potential we have in the U.S.”
