Most guests make a note of what catwalk item they might like to buy next season.

But it seems Jessica Chastain may have gone home with a very important phone number.

The Take Shelter actress was seen chatting to editor-in-chief of Vogue USA Anna Wintour in the front row at the Altuzarra Spring 2013 collection show during New York Fashion Week in Manhattan.

Anna, 62, looked rather delighted
with the A-list attention, flashing a rare smile upon her usually stern
face from which she established her Devil Wears Prada persona.

Meanwhile, 35-year-old Jessica has already posed for the April 2012 issue of Vogue Italia.

Alongside the pictorial, the
Californian hinted towards her fashion inspirations, saying: 'For me,
the glamour of Hollywood is identified with my favorite actresses.

'Greer Garson, Greta Garbo and Clara Bow, allure, mystery, sensuality, innocence.'

Today, the flame-haired star opted
for a simple yet stylish neutral tone dress with cross-stitching across
the cleavage and frilled detail on her hips which continued around to
the back of the frock.

She teamed the pencil skirt creation
with gold strap heels and a clasp belt, allowing her hair to be the
focal point as she forfeited any earrings or necklace for an additional
splash of glitz.

Also at the Altuzarra show were lovebirds Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish.

Kate was seen wearing an elegant
cream dress with a white-necked bodice, and appeared to be wearing the
same belt as Jessica, no doubt from the collection they were witnessing
on the runway.
