Can you believe it's taken this long for Jessica Chastain to grace the cover of Vogue magazine?!
The two-time Oscar nominated actress stuns on the fashion bible's December cover, looking absolutely gorgeous in a vibrant yellow Theory by Olivier Theyskens dress.
Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the red-headed beauty flashes a subtle smile while wearing minimal makeup as she lounges on a red cushion in the cover art, which is intended to evoke the image of Frederic Leighton's famous "Flaming June" painting.

The editorial shoot also recreates classic paintings and sees the 36-year-old star wearing a variety of high-fashion looks, including an Alexander Wang cerulean-blue twill dress with oversize draped sleeves that brings out her bright green eyes in a shot that pays homage to Félix Vallotton's 1924 painting Le Retour de la Mer.
In another stunning image, the Zero Dark Thirty actress takes on the role of Ria Munk in a pic meant to depict a portrait by Gustav Klimt, wearing a Vera Wang Collection hand-painted silk chiffon dress and Manolo Blahnik heels.
Despite her gorgeous appearance in the flawless pics, The Help star confessed to Vogue that she doesn't put herself on a Hollywood pedestal.
"I did not feel like a beautiful woman that people would kill each other for," she admitted, referring to her role in the 2006 theatrical production of Oscar Wilde's Salomé. "Jessica—who I am in my personal life—I'm very shy, I feel very awkward, I don't feel like a femme fatale at all."
Still, the successful star is incredibly grateful for the opportunities that have come her way.
"My life has gone, you know, a little wonderful and crazy," she said.
Vogue's December issue hits newsstands Nov. 19.
