Screw the fashion show, I just got an Oscar nod! Jessica Chastain finds out about nomination at Armani catwalk show
It's the ultimate fashion show faux pas – answering your mobile phone while seated on the front row.
But we think Giorgio Armani probably forgave his star guest Jessica Chastain when she interrupted his Paris fashion show to find out about her Oscar nomination.
The rising star, 30, knew she had to take the call when her phone rang during the Armani Prive show as the Academy Award nominees were being read across the Atlantic in Los Angeles.

During her brief conversation, the redhead was elated to find out she was up for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as social outcast Celia Foote in The Help.
Chastain was seated in the front row in between Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth's wife Livia when she got the fateful phonecall.
She had been watching models sashay down the catwalk for the Armani Prive haute couture presentation when her cellphone started ringing.

But given the nature of the call
there were no hard feelings from the fashion pack and she received a
round of applause from the room.
Livia uploaded a photo of the jubilant Chastain and Diaz on her Twitter page, taken just moments after the revelation.
Livia tweeted: 'Super congrats #JessicaChastain sitting next to me #Armani and just heard about her #Oscars nominations!'

The Italian film producer was also excited to hear her husband's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy co-star Gary Oldman had also been nominated for Best Actor.
She added: 'OMG OMG OMG #GaryOldman nominated 4 Oscars!!! Colin and I r in HEAVEN! #TinkerTailor so happy!!!'
Chastain will go head-to-head with her The Help co-star Octavia Spencer for the Best Supporting Actress gong next month.
No doubt Chastain's location at the time of finding out about her nomination will fuel speculation she will wear an Armani design at the Academy Awards next month.
