Oscars 2014: Amy Adams in Gucci Première

Posted on March 03, 2014

We don’t actually have a lot to say about this look, except to say it’s the best we’ve seen on her in a good while.

Amy Adams attends the 86th Annual Academy Awards held at the Dolby theater in Hollywood, California in a Gucci Première gown paired with Tiffany & Co. jewelry.

And the ironic thing is, this is a fairly standard Amy Adams look in a lot of ways; one that, with one or two details slightly altered, would have had us bitching up and down about it. But the color looks amazing on her (we haven’t always liked her color choices) and the earrings make a perfect compliment to the look (we definitely haven’t always liked her styling), adding both a pop of color and a little bit of pattern to this column of blue. The dress isn’t rocking our world or anything, but the fit is impeccable and the bold color makes up for any lack of oomph in the design.

We could take or leave the hair. We prefer when she wears it in less severe styles, but we can’t deny it looks good here; very polished and award-worthy, which is the name of the game, after all.  She did good. Now let’s get this girl an award next year. She’s overdue.

    • Sara__B

      She looks like a movie star at the Oscars should. Regal and gorgeous. Well done.

      • RescueMe23

        Agreed – I’d also love to see her win a well-deserved Oscar at some point!

    • VioletFem

      Flawless. This is a gorgeous color and the dress fits her perfectly. Love the hair and accessories too.

      • MaggieMae

        Gushing over the fit, here. Like a glove, as they say.

      • EveEve

        Her support garments should have won a special Oscar! That is one smooth dress, top to bottom.

      • misstressofsylar

        Between her, Julia, Jolie and Meryl, I’d say earrings were the star acesories of the night

        • Carrps

          Love Amy’s earrings, but I’d add Cate’s earrings to this list. Love me some opals.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Love the color and style of the gown on Adams. While I would have liked softer hair, this style doesn’t take away from the gown, and it does showcase the earrings.
      As far as awards go, Adams first caught my eye in “Junebug”, and I would have given her the best supporting Oscar for that role.

      • ballerinawithagun

        She was great in that movie!

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          INdeed she was-I fell in love with her character-so unaffected and loving.

      • Carrps

        OTRC she said she styled her hair for the (strong) possibility of rain.

    • PastryGoddess

      She looks amazing. Those earrings are fabulous. My only quibble is that she’s not wearing a necklace. But I’m a magpie and can’t help it

      • decormaven

        I’d love to see the companion necklace and bracelet to those danglers. Gorgeous colors.

    • g8rbait

      I’m a big fan of bold color, great tailoring, and a fit that looks great from every angle. This was my favorite look of the night.

    • Jacquelyn

      Loooooooooove the earrings

    • TAGinMO

      Flawless. It’s a WERQ.

      • VCR1

        I agree… She looks amazing! I wonder if it was just lacking a tiny bit?

    • Dave Hime

      Her halo looks perfect.

    • Emily Rose

      Much improvement on her part, but I have to wonder if this isn’t just a great dress? Like, I’m not sure Amy is actually adding anything to it.

      Not big on the hair though. I know, you gotta put it up for those earrings but I much prefer her looser styles.

    • LJCdoc

      Gorgeous, and one of my personal top dressed.

    • Liz

      Love her, loved this dress (Love it even more now that I see it’s navy rather than black). Don’t love the hair. I also loved her in American Hustle. She was that movie for me.

    • Cassidy Olsen

      She and Cate should have an earrings smackdown. They’re both so wonderful.

    • Kate Andrews

      I like this better than I did on tv. I’ll take the earrings and yellow diamond bracelet, thanks.

    • Blair Sylvester

      she doesn’t deserve an award because she got to be in Henry Cavill’s arms and that is better than an oscar. Kidding. But love this dress and the earrings. Maybe I have a weakness for rich blue dresses. I think this is what J Law’s dress wanted to be but this seems better executed and I like the color better

    • Janet B

      The fit is fantastic and the color is lovely on her.
      Gorgeous earrings, too.

    • crash1212

      Beautiful. And, she is overdue. Anytime I see that Amy Adams is in a movie I know she’s going to be great, even if I don’t care for the movie, she’s always turns in an excellent performance – varied, subtle, funny….just the best.

    • Fisher&SonsFuneralHome

      Love everything but the hair. It looks like she is waiting for hair dye to develop.

    • JLou

      Love the entire look, including the hair. I’m tired of flat-ironed hair, of mermaid hair, of boring everyday hair. I did hear Amy mention on the red carpet that this hairstyle was a last minute decision because of the rain.

      • Scal

        She also mentioned that she had styled herself with no stylist. Which shows actually. Her looks have been so hit or miss this season, I like that she took over the reins for herself for the oscars.

      • Carrps

        Yes, she did.

    • DTLAFamilies

      She has such fantastic hair that I hate to see it up. Imagine this same look but with that gorgeous man spilling over her shoulders.

      • Gatto Nero

        Did you mean “gorgeous mane”? Although a gorgeous man would do nicely, too.

      • jtabz

        Ooh. What gorgeous man?

        (I tease … too delicious a typo to pass up!)

      • DTLAFamilies

        Ha!!! Totally not fixing that. I now have visions of her feeling up Henry Cavill on the Graham Norton show.

        • teensmom99

          With hair down, she would be serving Rita Hayworth realness.

      • Scal

        It’s been raining like crazy in LA the last few days and it was really humid. She mentioned in a couple of interviews the original plan was to wear her hair down, but she changed it at the last minute as ‘it’s alot of hair and I didn’t want to have it frizz’. So I appreciated that.

    • TRSTL

      This s like a master class in fittng. Seriously, it is perfection and I LOVE those earrings! I could take or leave the hair but completely agree she is overdue a little gold man….

      • TRSTL

        Mostly, I am here today awaiting the Whoopi skewering for the abomination she wore on stage last night……..

    • Alyssa

      The fit, color, and earrings are all outstanding. Well done Amy.

    • sugarkane105

      WERQ.

    • Glam Dixie

      Love the dress, love the color and love the fit, the hair looks good but is a little too shellacked for my taste.

    • Lilyana_F

      Just look at that fit – perfection! I love the dress, the color, the earrings, all smart choices.

    • Eva_baby

      Loved this. Love the fit, love the color, love the earrings. Love it.

    • Jessica Freeman

      The hair waves were oddly placed, and had they been more towards the front, it would have looked incredible. I thought she really nailed it last night. Also was really glad to see she didn’t show up a dress from the 70′s.

    • jw_ny

      I love the bust flap (or whatever the tech term for it is…lol) at the top of the bodice, the color, fit, and fabric (not a wrinkle or pucker to be seen!)…even like the hip flaps. I’m not crazy about the earrings, although they’re prettier upon closer inspection. Her makeup is perfect…soft and pretty. Very classic overall…one of my fav AA looks ever.

    • mmebam

      I love her hair. Not nearly enough updos in the world.

    • Sylvia

      Me: I WANT that DRESS.
      Boyfriend: Are you breast-y enough for it? *Scrolls up* Ehhh…nahhh. But she WERQs it and you wouldn’t.

      Shattering dreams since forever. It’s perfect though, just a really gorgeous dress for a really gorgeous actress.

    • Evan

      LOVE the earings. If we’re gonna compare her to something similar, this is miles better than JLaw’s.

    • MilaXX

      Agreed, my only quibble is the hair. I would have preferred something a little softer here. I wonder if concerns about the humidity due to all the rain played a part in choosing this style. Either way the dress+earrings+makeup combo were enough for me to overlook it.

      • ashtangajunkie

        I saw her interviewed on the red carpet – she said that her hairstyle was chosen because of the humidity. I would have loved to see her hair down and wavy, the way she often wears it, but I’m happy that this style showed off those earrings so well.

    • Maggie

      I like what Amy said in the red carpet interview about her hair being a bit of a callback to Kim Novak’s “Vertigo” hair. She looked great.

      • Evan

        Speaking of Kim Novak, what she did to her face is so sad. She could be Donatella Versace’s sister now. They both must have had that fake plastic surgeon who did a lot of the stars. What a botch job.

        • Fanny_Trollope

          Oh, man. I just googled her to see, and what a shame. This strengthens my own resolve to live and die with the same face I was born with.

          • Evan

            She was at the Oscars last night. It was really sad.

        • DTLAFamilies

          The Atlantic has a great article this morning on Kim Novak titled “Getting picked on at the Oscars at age 81″ that I think is a must-read. Money quote:

          So let’s say — just as a hypothetical for-instance — you are an 81-year-old star whose last movie was in 1991 and who hasn’t been to the Oscars in many a long year. Not that you were ever nominated for one in the first place; you were, after all, a sex symbol for most of your career. As the evening approaches, the anxiety sets in. Harsh lights, you think. High-definition cameras. And a public that remembers you chiefly as the ice goddess whose beauty once drove James Stewart to the brink of madness.And even back then, when you were 25 years old, you worried constantly that no matter how you looked, it wasn’t good enough.

          So a few weeks before the ceremony, you go to a doctor, and he says, “Relax honey. I have just the thing to make you fresh and dewy for the cameras.”

          And you go to the Oscars, so nervous you clutch your fellow presenter’s hand. And the next day, you wake up to a bunch of cheap goddamn shots about your face.

          • Evan

            Well people shouldn’t be making fun of her. That’s wrong. But I’m just saying that’s it’s really sad to see what she did to her face. I appreciate that she was there, but it was cringe-worthy. It was like watching Dick Clark after he had his stroke.

            • DTLAFamilies

              It’s sad but the whole context needs to be taken into account. When women in the public eye are subjected to insane and oppressive beauty standards it’s not surprising a lot of them fall prey to unscrupulous hacks with scalpels. It’s blaming the individual women when the problem is much broader, is what I’m saying.

            • Evan

              That’s a good point. I’m a fan of natural aging myself, but if someone wants to get a little tasteful work done like Jane Fonda did, I’m all for it. Helen Mirren hasn’t had any work done, I believe, and she’s considered a sex symbol for her age. Women should look up to somebody like her.

            • Qitkat

              I read the Atlantic article and then the original blog post, and the comments. I was practically in tears. I knew people could be harsh, especially to actresses, I’ve tried myself not to do it, but sometimes inadvertently or intentionally people really are cruel to those in the public eye. I also think a small part of the issue is us at home thinking, “would I do that?” and looking harder at ourselves in the mirror as we age, and feeling insecure, and not as pretty as we once might have felt. I had cataract surgery a couple of years ago, and with the new lens I was absolutely shocked that I could see my wrinkles so much more clearly. They had been there all along, and I just wasn’t caring. But then…I was literally face to face with the truth, and I’m just an ordinary, non-famous woman who wants to look nice, and wouldn’t mind looking younger. I used to pass for 10-15 years younger than my actual age, and always delighted in it. So with all the pressures of Hollywood, and the unimaginable scrutiny the public gives anyone famous these days, well, I just don’t know how to finish my thoughts. It’s excruciating, this anonymous criticism sometimes. Nobody would do that to their friends. Maybe Kim Novak had the best of reasons for stepping away from the public eye. The other blogger certainly hinted of her insecurities and willingness to please the most outrageous demands of her directors and producers. I hope she goes back to her lovely life and has many supportive friends to carry her forward.

            • SierraDelta

              I’ve got a housefull of company, and I don’t have the proper time to organize my thoughts, but I wanted to thank you, Qitkat, for your honest response to this.

              I have never *ever* wanted fame and the spotlight that comes with it, and there’s no part of me that even begins to understand that need. It takes a person with more inner resilience than I have to deal with the nonstop scrutiny and unsolicited speculation from strangers. I’m fortunate in having a husband and adult sons who have always supported me with love and understanding, most especially on the off days when it’s all to easy to lose sight of who I am.

              I CANNOT envision voluntarily living a life with so little personal privacy. From what I’ve read, the lucky ones are people like Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep, who have said publicly that they rely on their families for the honesty they need to keep perspective. Not everyone is blessed with a support staff to keep them firmly anchored to reality.

              I remember Kim Novak from her heyday. There was a New York TV channel in the 60′s that showed movies on Saturday nights, and I first saw her in “Bell, Book and Candle.” It was probably seven or eight years after its release, and I watched it while I was babysitting. She was luminous and funny and touching, and I was entranced. When I saw her Sunday night, my first thought was “You’re better than this, Kim! You don’t have make yourself fit their mold.” I was saddened that she couldn’t just be her 80-plus self, even if that self has wrinkles and lines and honorably sagging bits that scare people.

              We’re all going to get old if we’re fortunate enough, and no amount of medical intervention will freeze how we looked at the time when we felt most like the selves we were meant to be. We’re uncertain about the reality of living longer and aging without control over our circumstances. I think that’s why we and the fame machine are so spooked by the signs of old-ness. It reminds us that tempus does indeed fugit, and there’s very little we can do to prevent that.

              My dear Qitkat, I think we might be soul sisters. I’d love to have scones and tea/cocktails with you. We could compare our wrinkles and tell the stories behind each frown line. We could be outrageous and teach the children that they’d be damn lucky to be as fabulous as we are when they leave their endless youth behind. FTW!

            • Qitkat

              Bravo, SierraDelta. So well said. I’m a bit verklempt.
              I would be more than honored to be your soul sister.

            • SierraDelta

              <3

          • Qitkat

            Heading off to find the article. Thanks for the insight.

    • StellaTex

      Nice halo effect on the placement, but… zzzzzzzz.

      Am I the only one who thought this was super boring? Especially with the severe hair? Her hair is beautiful, but you wouldn’t know that from this look. I just thought it was very, very boring. Everything about it.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      Agree with everything TLo say here and especially that she is way overdue for an award. She actually cost me my Oscar pool last night since I picked her for best actress (yes, we all knew Cate would win and I adore Cate, but I refuse to see or vote for Woody Allen movies). I’ve adored her since June Bug.

    • decormaven

      Those earrings are amazeballs. They are easily the best item of jewelry seen on the RC last night. This dress is fit to perfection, and the hairstyle suits. I was thankful for such a strong color on the red carpet. Snaps to Ms. Amy for WERQing this.

    • CMSmith1848

      Upon first glance I thought it had pockets! With the long neck and strong hair, feels like it is calling for a necklace.

    • Introspective

      beautiful. preferred sandy’s in the battle of the midnight blue dresses, but still cannot deny she is looking gorgeous and clearly floated to the red carpet as there’s not a wrinkle in sight.

      • Qitkat

        It must be the fabric. Or some stylists have a secret that we all wish they would share. Lack of wrinkles adds to the air of perfection.

      • Toni

        That was my thought. Stood up in a horse trailer? Laid down in the back of a limo? My personal guess is she was accompanied by someone with a portable steamer.

    • Cheryl

      Lovely. Gorgeous colour, perfect fit, and the hair isn’t nearly severe as it has been previously. Applause, applause.

    • Tatiana Luján

      I love the subtle manicure, the color, fit and shape of the dress (that’s how a peplum should look, not like dish clothes) and the earrings.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      I am in love with this dress.

    • LeelaST

      She looks lovely. If you’re doing to do a peplum this is it – love the way it echoes the bodice detail.

    • DaveUWSNYC

      So great she’s got a halo

    • Scot Meacham Wood

      she mentioned a one of her interviews that she had worn her hair up because of concerns about the weather – and what the humidity does to her hair. There was also a sweet comment about seeing Kim Novak that evening – and she was pulling out her best “Carlotta Valdez” hair!

    • brown-eyed girl

      Personal best.

    • Akemi

      LOVE those earrings!

    • Pennymac

      The tailoring on this dress is immaculate, the color is very flattering, and as soon as I saw the hair I thought “Of course. Cause of the rain.”
      This is an amazing, deliberately put together look. LOVE!

    • http://ediblecville.blogspot.com Libby

      At first I thought she was wearing the same dress as JLaw but in a different color, and I thought the hair was too severe. But in an interview she said she put it up because of the rain. Can’t fault her for that. Pretty look. She came dressed ready to win.

    • GoAwayKardash

      The fit is insanely good, obviously done by angels. On another note, can people stop complaining that Leo has lost w/4 oscar noms? This girl has been nominated FIVE TIMES and has never won. Agree that she is due!

      • MoHub

        No one beats the late, great Peter O’Toole for noms without wins. And Lifetime Achievement awards don’t count.

    • JauntyJohn

      What I see with this look is that SHE likes the way she looks. She’s formal but comfortable — and given that it’s strapless, she can move and breathe without anxiety. For me that ups the “gorgeous” quotient considerably.
      She was adorable when she popped up out of her chair to do a little shimmy with Pharrell, and didn’t have to do a big hoik to the bodice. (The TLo Approved official term for yanking your slipping clothes back up.)

    • traceyishere

      Chic as chic gets.

    • Qitkat

      Unexpected earrings, good makeup and hair, lovely classy dress. She is beautiful.

    • Constanza Álvarez Espinoza

      This is a WERQ for me

    • marlie

      I have zero complaints – Amy looks gorgeous. I love her hair and makeup here, the earrings are a perfect touch, I love the color and the simple details of the dress, AND that dress wins all of the awards for fit. Brava, Amy.

    • throwaneyeonthis

      Did she get married? It appears she is wearing an engagement ring with a wedding band. Or do people abandon their own jewelry for red carpet events?

    • Truthiness2U

      And THAT is how you do a peblum. I loved this look, colour, fit..all were good. And agree, you could tell she did too, which adds to how she’s selling it. One of her best looks.

    • webslice33

      this is a WERQ for me!! flawless!! elegant!

      • Glitterberries

        Agreed! It’s the best she’s ever looked.

    • Jacob Bowen

      I am not necessarily a fan of the dog earred bodice but overall I think this dress and this color are PERFECT on her! I almost wish there was a necklace, but I would want to see it there beforehand to make sure it wouldn’t muddy the neckline.

    • GeoDiva

      Love the earrings…. the dress… meh

    • Emily Smith

      I like the hair. I caught one of her red carpet interviews where she said she put it up because of the rain. I have a feeling she wanted to wear it down but was afraid of the frizz, which I can appreciate I think her hair is a similar texture to mine. It’s insta-frizz poof in humidity.

      • Truthiness2U

        Fellow frizzy haired person in humidity person, here. So yeah, I agree about not wanting to risk that, and so putting the hair up instead. And for me it adds to the nice, clean lines of the dress, and gives more attention to that pop of colour with the earrings. Which I think were very well chosen.

        • Emily Smith

          Agreed, I’m usually partial to up-do’s anyway for formal events.

    • FashionShowAtLunch

      The color and the fit are flawless, but I thought this was really staid and dull.

      • SierraDelta

        I think the flip side of “staid and dull” or “boring” might be “classic” — simple, subtle, sophisticated, understated, and elegant, which lets the wearer’s personality shine.

        • FashionShowAtLunch

          agreed. just don’t think that’s the case here.

          • demidaemon

            Like I said in another post, the fear of the Worst Dressed List is too strong with many of these stars, ESPECIALLY at the Oscars.

    • Maya

      i like the dress better here than i did watching it on tv last night. a little plain but fits her well. love the earrings! hate the hair.

    • imakeart

      This is the definition of “the perfect fit.”

    • dalgirl

      The color, the fit, the earrings-flawless. These smaller hip flaps might have improved Jennifer Lawrence’s Dior gown. I did hear Amy say to an interviewer that she put her hair up in case of rain.

    • formerlyAnon

      This is how you do sleek hair. It really DOES look different from “bun wrapped around the base of the pony tail.” Honest, ladies.

      She looks good, and like a movie star at an awards show. Mission accomplished.

    • KT

      Sigh. Look, her body is incredible, and that thing fits like a glove. I like the color and the fact that it has a bit of visual interest, while remaining simple. I aggressively dislike her hair, and think that her makeup is underdone. I can’t tell if I would like this more if the aforementioned elements were altered, but I will say that even though she looks very nice in these photos, this was a huge snoozefest onscreen. I appreciate that she didn’t wear red or a metallic gown like everyone else, but she kind of faded into the background. Come on Amy, bring the boldness!!! That’s the first step to actually taking home one of those golden fellows… which you absolutely deserve.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I almost lost my mind with lust when I saw her earrings. This gown is spectacular on her – perfectly fitted and a fantastic colour for her. And I agree that she’s due for an Oscar.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      I’m impressed by the fit of that dress, and the color is beautiful too. She looks stunning, like a movie star.

    • alyce1213

      Simple perfection, much like Jennifer Lawrence’s red Calvin Klein when she got her supporting actress Oscar.
      I like her hair, it works with the dress and avoids a Jessica Rabbit look.

      • SassieCassy

        jlaw was nominated for best actress and didn’t win. man that was a good look

    • surfergirl70

      I felt like this should be a WERQ. The color and style are gorgeous, and the fit is beyond perfect. She looked flawless.

    • Dagney

      That hair is breathtaking.

    • Chickadeep

      Gorgeous color on her, and the earrings and makeup are flaw-free. The hair’s a little too severe for me — it skids right past “controlled chic” and ends up in “1930s prison matron” territory.

    • B_C_J

      The fit of this dress is the best I have ever seen. She looks like a goddess. This is pure understated elegance.

    • nowlo

      I would have preferred a somewhat softer hairstyle with such a clean, minimalist dress, but overall, this looks good. I love the earrings.

    • Kathy

      She bores me to death. Watching her in American Hustle with JLaw, she was a big nothing. I think she’s a hot bod with a pretty face and moderate acting skills.

    • lundibleu

      She looks fantastically regal and poised. And gorgeous. Again, simple wins over frills. I would possibly suggest a small pendant to complement the earrings, but she doesn’t necessarily need it.

      She’s going to be another Kate Winslet, isn’t she – lots of well deserved nominations and then a win for a film that slips a bit under the radar.

    • http://weirdinedgewise.blogspot.com ONEWEIRDWORD

      She’s a tall cool drink in this – very gorgeous and werqy

    • Glammie

      This is such an also-ran look–she wore it knowing she wasn’t going to get the award. It’s attractive, though I wish her hair were down, but not a centerstage look at all.

    • Michelle Gennari

      zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • PeaceBang

      A WERQ! Let’s give this lady a WERQ!

      • MaggieMae

        I do love this dress on her. I can’t get over the perfect fit. And nary a wrinkle! Perfection!

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      This is a Renee Zellweger dress. Except I think Renee would have shortened it to shin length so we could all see her shoes and ankles.

    • E. D.

      I wish her hair looked less stiff. Still, she looks great.

    • Stubenville

      Loving almost everything but the little winglets on her hips; are they really necessary?

    • altalinda

      One of my favorites yesterday.

    • Trickytrisha

      Lovely, simple dress. Hair’s too lacquered into place and close to her head. Looking good though.

    • msdamselfly

      Not liking this stiff look

      Either the gown has some lovely structure built into it or her foundation garments are top shelf because it looks great! Once again, her makeup artist doesn’t do right by her. She’s a pretty woman but not so pretty as to pull off the “nude makeup” look: give her a stronger lip, eyes, or at least some severe necklace to match that sickening gown. Poor thing though, she’s lost what, four times now?

      She picked this herself, which makes you wonder whether maybe she ought to do that more often….

      I booed J.Law’s dress for being too simple but this one works. The earrings are divine. I so rarely say this but I think hair down would have been a better choice- a Sandy-style side wave.

      A much newer and more interesting version of the DIOR that Jennifer Lawrence wore!

    • Mirakel9

      Pretty, well done!

      No complaints. If she picked this herself, she’s got an eye!!

      This was one of my faves of the night. Not that she’s breaking any new ground or anything but the color is gorgeous and that thing is tailored PERFECTLY.

      How I tried to like this dress. But I just don’t, and I’m not sure why. Nice fit, and it’s a color that looks good for her and at the same time too harsh. A bit stiff. But of course Amy’s beautiful and this isn’t terrible, I just wished for more!

      I think this is beautiful and love the earrings. I don’t love the hair, but as mentioned, she styled it (lacquered it) because of the rain.

      What’s wrong with you guys – this is definitely a WERQ!!!

      Love the earrings.

      Maybe a bigger bracelet, but otherwise, simple done Killa.

      I find Amy Adams incredibly boring and overrated. BUT… I love this dress on her and I think she looks great. I’d call it a WERQ for sure.

    • EEKstl

      Hair down and flowing (but styled to show those gorgeous ear bobs) and she’d have been flirting with WERQ territory. As is, lovely but the hair is too severe with the color and austerity of the gown.

      Put.the.arms.down. I know they all do it, but such an inelegant way to pose.

    • smh4748

      Love the dress. Covet the earrings. Both are so gorgeous.

      But good gracious, that hair about ruins it all for me. Every time they showed her in the audience, I grimaced. It’s just so helmet-like and shellacked, and non-flattering. It made me sad because with pretty much any other hair, she’d get a 100% on this.

      I think I would love this if she either lost the boob flaps or the hip flaps. I understand the reasoning behind them, but they just seem distracting. Right now, I like it but I don’t love it.

    • kimmeister

      I’ll be the odd kitten out and say I don’t like the earrings with this dress. They’re too casual/crafty for the chicness of the dress. I think they’d be cuter dressing up some jeans.

      Loved this soooooo much! Whoever said her shapewear should have gotten a special oscar is right on. That dress fits like a glove tip to toe. Color is stunning! Earrings were absolutely perfect! Really not sold on the hair, though. She looks great, but it’s a bit severe from face on. From the side it’s lovely. When I first saw it from the front, I found myself trying to figure out what the style was bc idoesn’t come together until you see the profile.

      AMY ADAMS WILL SURELY WIN AN OSCAR FROM HER UPCOMING MOVIE BIG EYES AND ALL EYES WILL BE AROUND AMY FOR 2015 FOR SURE

    • dschubba

      I really can’t decide whether this is a person best or just another “okay” Amy Adams look.

    • bluefish

      Gorgeous dress.

    • Pterodactyl111

      Love the hair, love the earrings, love that color. The hip hand rests, however, I am not sold on.

      I want to know what is the miracle fabric that fits like a second skin and doesn’t crease in the limo on the way over?

      This is just so impressive and perfect for the occasion.
