This is a little different:
“American Hustle” star Amy Adams attends the 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California in a Roland Mouret dress accessorized with Neil Lane jewelry.
She must be having a cape moment, because she wore a massive one to the Golden Globes and now she’s sporting this strange little sorta-but-not-really-a-capelet dress.
GEEZ. We’re actually struck dumb. We criticize her so much that we’re afraid to say anything.
We don’t know… there’s nothing wrong with it, but it’s not doing it for us. And we feel bad, because Amy Adams is one of the few people we cover whose style we just can’t seem to get a handle on. She’s gorgeous and she puts a hell of a lot of effort and thought into her looks, but it never sets us on fire and we can’t point to why. It really comes down to a taste thing. She likes to wear things that we don’t much like. That’s it.
We really like the shape from the front, but we pretty much hate it from the back, especially with that focus-pulling visible zipper. We’re not loving the faux bra straps. The color’s not doing it for us either. We think the right color could instantly make this look more sophisticated, but we’re not sure what the color should be. And while we’re happy to see her hair down, since she defaults to a Kidman-like pulled-tight look too much for our tastes, this one’s looking a little Grand Ol’ Opry circa 1972 to our eyes.
