Fame10 Fashion Evolution: Amy Adams
11th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards – 2006
Amy Adams looked pretty sophisticated at the 11th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards. She wore a simple white dress shirt with a long black skirt. It isn’t an especially creative outfit, but at least she looked respectable. After her Oscar-nominated performance in “Junebug,” her career started to take off. In 2006, she went on to land roles in films like “Standing Still,” “The Wedding Date” and “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” alongside Will Ferrell.
“Standing Still” was the only film that gave her a lead role. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a critical or commercial success. “Wedding Date” and “Telladega Nights” gave her supporting roles; however, neither of them were the types of flicks that got the attention of the Academy. Either way, Adams has come a long way from when she was first working as a professional dancer at Boulder’s Dinner Theatre and Country Dinner Playhouse and Heritage Square Music Hall.
Film Independent’s Spirit Awards – 2007
The “Junebug” star kept it simple and chic at the 2007 Film Independent’s Spirit Awards in this strapless black and white dress. She’s definitely being a bit bolder with her fashion; however, we’d like to see her move away from black and white and add some much-needed color to her wardrobe.
In 2007, Amy Adams landed the role of Gisele in the Disney film “Enchanted.” Three hundred women auditioned for the role, but she stood out. According to the director, she landed the role because her “commitment to the character, her ability to escape into the character’s being without ever judging the character was overwhelming.” The film ended up being a commercial success, grossing more than $340 million worldwide. She also received a number of nominations for her performance, including a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, as well as a Critics’ Choice Award nomination for Best Actress and she won the Saturn Award for Best Actress.
