Jessica Chastain wants to make one thing clear, Hollywood: She's here to stay!

Jessica Chastain in Georgio Armani

The actress definitely made that statement with the rose colored Georgio Armani Privé gown she wore to the 2013 Academy Awards.

Chastain — also adorned with Harry Winston jewels — told E!'s Ryan Seacrest that she picked the dress as a homage to Old Hollywood.

"It's a very 'Happy birthday Mr. President' kind of dress," she joked.

She deserves this gown.

Chastain — nominated for her second Oscar for Zero Dark Thirty — experienced her fair share of rejection in her career. She was so used to rejection that she told The Hollywood Reporter that she felt she was "cursed."

"That was something we joked about: The Chastain Curse," she told the magazine last fall. "I had worked for so long. I even played a dead body on TV. I did so many things. I finally got my big break."

You have definitely arrived, Jessica.
