Amy Adams in Brentwood

Posted on October 02, 2012

We’ve been kind of bitchy today and our next post is going to be equally bitchy (not to mention the upcoming All on the Line recap, which is all about how we were such bitches to Korto last night), so let’s take a bitchbreak for just a second.


Amy Adams (pictured with her fiance Darren Le Gallo) shops at a furniture store in Brentwood, California.

Longchamp ‘Le Pliage’ Large Shoulder Tote

Skipping past the fact that she apparently went furniture shopping in a tight little dress, we think she looks pretty adorable here. The white sneakers totally make the look. And that’s a pretty great “running errands” bag, although it looks like it would swallow up everything she puts in it.

Also: boyfriend is hot. But that’s no surprise.

  • T shirting dress and sneaks? Meh BF? Yowza!

    • AudreysMom

       and she get extra points for the fact that that dress is figure hugging YET stretchy and no doubt very comfortable.

  • teensmom99

    Miss Amy, keeping it real!!!!

  • kaycem

    she’s really adept at convenient bag placement… let the rumor mill begin:  self-conscious or pregnant?

    • Introspective

       was totally thinking the same! that big old bag might be hiding a little old amy in the oven. but she looks totally cute and relaxed.

      boyfriend is looking like somebody everyone would want to procreate with. hot as all get out. snaps girl cause he’s the best accessory in the pics.

      • shirab

        Also, is he actually opening the door for her in that fourth picture? He’s clearly got an electronic key so he doesn’t need to lean in to unlock it. Hot *and* chivalrous, in that case. A potent combo.

        • RebeccaKW

           My thought, too.  He opened the door for her.  Now, I’m an independent lady and I have my moments of ‘I can open a damn door by myself!’  But.  Usually that’s more of the ‘I’m not going to sit here/stand here until he gets around to letting me out.’  But opening a door to let me in, I rarely balk at that.

        • She makes mega millions per movie and he’s…? 

          I’d be opening any door she wants me to if I’m him.

      • Now that you mention it…..

        Still, that dress looks like a pull on and go.  Especially with the sneaks.  Definitely keeping it real.

  • charlotte

    Gosh, for a moment I thought “Brentwood” was the designer! Anyway: while I’m not a fan of Longchamp bags, I do like the concept of affordable items on celebrities.

  • MrsMaxPower

    Boyfriend is insanely hot! She looks cute, but I like his outfit better than hers.

  • Real cute. So, those Longchamps bags are apparently the THING right now in Colombia and my cousin is desperate to have one, and I look at them and just think, meh. Maybe it’s because I live in NYC and so when I leave my apartment my bag needs to have everything and I hate shuffling through a sack. 

    • Kate4queen

      I have one of the ones Mary Katrantzou did for Longchamps and I’m quite fond of it myself although it is on the large size, but great for taking on a plane. 🙂

      • That’s a little different – I would die for anything by Mary Katrantzou. 

    • MilaXX

       my sis bought one of those bag sorter things they have infomercials on for that very reason.

      • I have been considering it. I would also like something similar to put in my makeup shelf in the bathroom to use a little more of the vertical space.

    • lovelyivy

       I bought one the other day and ended up giving it away for this exact reason. Cute bag, totally not practical.

      • I look at them and I think, “Maybe for textbooks?” But I feel like a big law textbook would rip right through that material. 
        Also, living in NYC, while I am not wealthy, I see uber-rich ladies often using these as totes to carry groceries from the supermarket. So I don’t really look at them and think “FABULOUS I NEED IT.” 

        • Ali

           They are sturdier than they look. It schlepped my con law text for a semester with no problems.

        • I like them for travel. They fold up nicely. 

          • That is a good reason. I can see that. (I have to add that my trend-driven cousin annoys me for her inability to step outside the box of what “everyone” is wearing; she moved to rainy Bogota and my mom offered to buy her some cute rainboots and my cousin said, “No one wears that!” Because practicality is unimportant. Cut to a year later and she’s dying for a pair because they’ve come into style among her friends. It’s all very Mean Girls.)

      • I use cosmetic bags inside to sort the things I need. One for mints and gum and tissue. One for my contact stuff and glasses, etc. It keeps the bag neat, makes it easy to locate things and also to transfer to another bag quickly. It’s my mom tote and since it’s plastic, I dont’ feel bad about putting on the ground at soccer games, movie theaters and such. 

        • lovelyivy

           I don’t carry that much stuff, but in general I must have three sections in any bag- one for business receipts, one for keys, small change, lip balm and metrocard, and one for my kindle and phone. Your system sounds really great, but for me any organizational tool that can be taken out of the bag is a no-go as it can and will be lost.

        • Allison Woods

           Seriously, a whole section just for mints gum, and tissue? I need to change jobs.

    •  They’ve been a thing in D.C. for years now.  They make my eyeballs itch.

  • she looks adorable and totally weather appropriate, considering it’s been a million degrees here the last few weeks. 

  • kalisa

    J’ADORE white converse with a casual summer dress. 

  • This bag is owned by 97% of the sorority members at Berkeley. Fact. 

    •  This bag is owned by 97% of the sorority members at ANY university.

  • Every other girl at my private university in Chicago carries that exact bag to class.

    • leighne

      Every other girl on my public bus in Chicago carries that exact bag to work too.

      • Zi Jie Tan

        Every other girl in Singapore carries that bag, real or fake. 

  • aristida_girl

    love the bag and the dress and the man is lusty too, you go A.A.!

  • theblondette

    That dress actually looks pretty comfortable for shopping, given they’ve got a car to ride home in and so presumably aren’t marching around for miles… She looks more like her real age here, doesn’t she? And I don’t mean that in a bad way at all. I quite like his grey beard scruff, though his not-quite-flat cap irrationally annoys me.

  • MilaXX

    I like the look. I give her a pass since the dress appears to be made out of sweatshirt material. It’s a look I could see any non celeb person wearing to the mall.

    •  Exactly – cute tshirt-dress with a bit of cowl detail and ruching, plus some converse. Normal but fine.

  • lbl

    Those Longchamp were all the rage in high school, paired with North Face and Uggs. Dare you to guess how I fell about them.

  • greyhoundgirl

    The woman has the fittest calves I have ever seen.

  • SapphoPoet

    She looks cute and comfortable. Kate Middleton uses the same bag. (God, how is it that I know that?)

  • kimmeister

    Hah, that dress reminds me of the baby dress Melissa made in last week’s PR challenge.  But, the ruching on an adult body works so much better! 🙂

  • Zippypie

    I don’t like this.  It’s blah.  In a color, it would be cute.  Grey with her coloring just doesn’t work.  Do love the sneakers though.  I hate those Longchamp totes.  Ugly, big, made of raincoat material. Yuck.

  • adorable. love my longchamp shopper. it does swallow everything i put in it but that is good thing. it fits so much stuff!

  • I love that Amy Adams runs errands wearing almost the exact same thing that I might. Tshirt dress? Check. Chucks? Check. Longchamp bag? I don’t have one, but I can borrow my sister’s. 

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Great scruff…maybe lose the hat though. Oh wait…

  • Trisha26

    Black hole or not, I like the bag.

  • Bitch stole my mommy look! Love the dress (which is clingy but hardly tight) and the sneakers and – and this may never happen again so I am just going to say it – I have the bag. In cornflower blue. Beat the crap out of it this summer but it is the bestest, chicest ‘mom tote’ I’ve ever had. I have the same bag as Amy Adams. Should that not make me so happy?

    • Mary229

      I have the bag too. It’s the best bag for running errands out there. It’s popular for a reason for busy moms on the go.

  • What’s cute to me is that first, it looks like he’s checking out HER ass, then later, she’s checking out HIS ass. Love.

    • Aw I miss my ex boyfriend I loved looking at his butt.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    I feel like the Longchamp bags are the everyday version of Chanel bags. Get one, it’ll last you, and the design almost doesn’t change.

    • miagain

      and you can buy different colors and not feel guilty!!

  • Hate the bag with a burning passion (please do not tell me how much that thing costs…) but the rest is adorable, including the BF…

  • I should look so good running errands!

  • jmw1122

    I’ve been seeing girls with that bag everywhere (seriously, there’s at least two of them on every subway car I travel in) the past couple years, and had no idea who in the hell made it. Now I do. Thanks TLo!

    On topic, she’s too adorables for words and he’s super hot. Their daughter and any future offspring of theirs will be gorgeous.

  • NO, Tom and Lorenzo NO!  Please do not cosign that TERRIBLE Longchamp bag that every person under the age of 40 insists on carrying around D.C.  

  • Ali

    I own that bag! I’ve had a Le Pliage for years. This will be the one and only time I’m carrying the same bag as a celeb, since it’s not a bajillion dollars, ha.

  • marilyn

    She looks like a gym teacher.  You would think she might do something with her hair, and take a stab at some makeup.  The dress is too tight.  I think that there should be a very relaxed standard for these people on their days off, but she falls below it.  Any woman would not look so undone to go out.

  • SignLadyB

    And hey, he opened the car door for her. Can do no wrong in my book after that.

  • Oooh, one of the rare occasions I can actually say, “I have those shoes!!!!” at a TLo post.   

  • guest2visits

    The dress is flimsy and disappointing – not really flattering.  I don’t think it has half the style that her sneakers do. 
    Cute bag.  Super cute fiance.

  • The bag looks cheap, like something you pick up at a street market.  No like.

  • Love this. Cute and comfortable. 

  • LeifBallard

    Ladies….I don’t think the white shoes work with this dress…it’s a little young for me ;-P and I obvi love the bag but it is a little played out right?!

  • Now, Amy Adams IS on my irrational hate list, so I love that she looks awful here.  The dress is too tight, she shouldn’t be wearing it with the sneaks, and the bag looks like a freebie from the Estee Lauder counter.  

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    as i may have mentioned, the temperatures have been something like brutal & something like ridiculous here lately. it’s like the powers that be over all of us are testing out global warming right here right now. i’d love to tell them that that particular freak flag does not fly but i doubt they would listen. maybe if i beg.

    be that as it may, she looks like maybe 50% of all women under, i dunno, sixty, in los angeles. maybe less, maybe i’m confused agewise cos for some reason i dont age like other people. genetics, most likely. doesnt matter. it’s just a very regular look is all.

  • I think she looks adorable. I also think she might be my new girl crush. That list is getting long….

  • quiltrx

    Cute outfit…wish I could look like that!

  • Sarah Rinehart


  • TieDye64

    Rowr, cute as hell. She’s looking good, too.

  • Allison Woods

    I do love me a dress, and with cool tennis shoes, it’s oh so Seattle. I’d like to think I started that, bu I probably didn’t.

  • Mary229

    She’s adorable. Great skin. Cute figure. Not trying to put on a show for anyone. I love her.

    And yeah….her fiancé is hot. They make beautiful babies together. Have you seen their child lately? She’s gorgeous.

  • lrhoff

    She looks like crap.
