Jessica Chastain literally glowed in one of her latest looks.

The actress lit up the room of the 2023 Drama Desk Awards at Sardi's on June 6, in New York City, where she took the podium to accept an award for her role in Broadway's A Doll's House donning a bright neon green pantsuit.

The ensemble featured wide-leg pants and a long blazer, worn over a matching strapless corset-style top with a waist belt accent.

For beauty, the Molly's Game star wore her ginger red hair down in loose curls, opting for a neutral makeup look. Before entering the venue, she was snapped outside wearing oversized sunglasses, her only accessory, allowing the standout 'fit to truly have its moment.

At the event, the Academy Award winner was honored for Outstanding Lead Performance in a Play for her role as Nora Helmer in the Henrik Ibsen-created rework, directed by Jamie Lloyd and adapted by playwright Amy Herzog.

After the function, she took to Instagram to upload a video snippet of the moment, where she touched on how much it meant to her to be honored, as well as her history with Broadway, mentioning her grandmother exposing her to the theater world as a child.

"I can't tell you how much this means to me. I would never be able to express it in words, without getting way too emotional," Chastain said during her acceptance speech on Tuesday, June 6.

The actress continued: "My grandmother first took me to see live theater when I was 7 years old, and it was the first time in my life I felt seen and understood by a community of people…. And I dreamed of someday moving to New York, and being a part of this community."
