Oscars 2019 Style File: Amy Adams Does Retro Sexy for the Oscars and the Vanity Fair Party

Posted on February 26, 2019

Well, we’d hoped that she’d really turn it out in an unexpected and totally chic way, and while we can’t say we’re a hundred percent on either of these choices, we can say that she fulfilled RuPaul’s deathless bit of advice. She did not, in fact, fuck it up.

While this wouldn’t have been our recommendation for her, we can’t deny that it’s a gorgeous gown and it looks amazing on her. We’d have loved it in black with all that silver embellishment. Think of how much more dramatic that would have been. But it looks fantastic with the jewelry. A dress like this lives or dies on its fit and thankfully, that part of the look is flawless. It just feels like everything above the neck is a bit understyled. An up do with this gown would have looked a little too retro, but we can’t say the current style is doing anything for the look. And a little more color on the face would keep her from looking washed out. We sound nitpickier than we mean to. It comes down to this: she looks great, but she needs more color and she needed to do something with her hair.

We like this one quite a bit more, although it’s not without its problems. The color looks stunning on her, which is no surprise because it’s pretty much her signature color. We’re impressed by how smooth and unwrinkled all that satin is, but we’re disappointed by the fit in the bust. Her right side looks like it needed a little more taping. And again, we can’t understand the hair situation at all. It looked kind of bland with the first dress, but we think it looks pretty terrible with this one.
