Fame10 Fashion Evolution: Amy Adams
On-screen, Amy Adams is a force to be reckoned with. Off-screen, she’s still figuring some stuff out fashion-wise. At some events, she looks exquisite while, at other events, she obviously needs some help putting together an Oscar-winning outfit. It is hard to believe that she has been in the spotlight for over a decade now. We are hoping that she finally wins an Oscar in 2015 and that she finally establishes herself as a red carpet fashion star – no more hitting then missing! Because we love Adams so much, we figured now would be a good time to see her fashion evolution!
Premiere of Win a Date with Tad Hamilton – 2004
Amy Adams attended the premiere of “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton” wearing this brown and black striped dress with pink heels. The dress isn’t anything to write home about and the heels do not match at all. The outfit would have looked much better if she had gone with some brown or black heels. She was still trying to launch her acting career at this point. She landed a role in Catch Me If You Can as Leonardo DiCaprio’s character’s fiancée. The part should have launched her career, but it didn’t.
Adams didn’t have a lot on her acting resume at this point. She was appearing in small, questionable films like “Psycho Beach Party” and she guest starred on television shows like “That ‘70s Show,” “Charmed,” “The Office,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Smallville” and “The West Wing.” For someone with her skillset, it is amazing to see what she had to do to make it in Hollywood.
Screening for Walk the Line – 2005
The struggling actress showed up at the screening for “Walk the Line” wearing this pretty black dress with matching heels and a matching clutch. This is a much better look on her than the striped dress. It is simple but classy. 2005 turned out to be a great year for her. After years of struggling to make it, she finally did!
Adams’s breakthrough role was in “Junebug,” a low-budget independent film. She played Ashley Johnson, a young, cheerful and talkative pregnant woman, which ended up earning her numerous critical accolades. Carina Chocano of Los Angeles Times praised her performance. “Adams’ performance in a role that could have easily devolved into caricature is complex and nuanced,” she noted. In addition to the all the praise she received from the critics, she received several awards for Best Supporting Actress, as well as nominations from the Screen Actors Guild and the Academy Awards.
