Jessica Chastain has never been to the Golden Globes before. "I'm really nervous," she said Sunday before heading into the Beverly Hilton ballroom. "I still feel like a newbie."

So what will she do to calm the nerves? "I'm gonna sit with my girls from 'The Help' and we're gonna sip some Champagne," she said with a smile.

Chastain, up for supporting actress in a drama for her portrayal of the "tacky" Cecilia Foote in "The Help," said she doesn't try on many dresses before deciding on her red carpet look because she usually has a good idea of what she likes to wear.

"It was love at first sight when I tried this one on," Chastain said of her white Givenchy gown. The actress has been seen in a variety of colorful dresses on the red carpet this season — a move she says isn't intentional.

"I think for me fashion is just like acting. It's ways of telling stories. Maybe that's why my parts in my movies are so different. I like the feeling of being a storyteller. So maybe that's why it's been the different colors."
