Jessica completed her look for the evening with a light pallet of makeup. 

Tammy Faye rose to fame with her husband Jim Bakker in the 1970s and 80s to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park and she passed away in 2007 after a lengthy battle with colon cancer.

Tammy Faye was known for caking her face in make up and Jessica has revealed wearing the heavy film makeup left her skin stretched out. ‘I think for sure I’ve done some permanent damage to my skin on this,’ she told The Los Angeles Times.

‘Listen, I eat very pure and I take very good care of my skin and I stay out of the sun and all that stuff. But it’s heavy,’ said the redheaded beauty.

‘And when you’re wearing it all day every day — the weight of it on your body, it stretches your skin out,’ added the red carpet fixture.

‘I finally took it off and I was like, “I look 50 years old!”‘ Jessica said with a laugh.
