Oscar nominated actress Amy Adams clearly knows how to work the red carpet. But she also knows how to give us that wow factor in her editorials.
I was blown away when I saw the May 2009 cover of W magazine, with Amy wearing Marc Jacobs. She always gives us really dynamic editorials, that brings out a side to her we have not yet seen on screen.
Here are some extracts from her interview:
On being nominated for an Oscar: “I just was so reflective the whole evening on how I came to be sitting in that room. At one point my fiancÃ© was like, ‘You feel distant.’ And I said, ‘I am! I can’t even talk to you!’ I was there at the Oscars thinking, ‘What if I never left the Gap?'”
On planning her upcoming wedding: “I have a reputation as a poor planner, so expectations are pretty low. When I have people to my house for dinner and tell them it’s casual, they think that means don’t wear high heels, but I mean, ‘You’ll be getting your own forks out of the drawer.'”
On looking young: “I ordered a glass of champagne on the plane today, and the flight attendant asked, ‘Are you old enough to drink?'” I was like, ‘Iâ€™m old enough to worry about being infertile, so yes!â€™’“
On trying to be cool in high school: “Iâ€™d hated school. The people were indifferent toward me, and thatâ€™s the worst thing in my mind. We were defined by the clothes we bought at the mall. If I didnâ€™t get things on clearance, I wasnâ€™t getting them. I would make fake Guess jeans by buying a cheaper brand with a triangle label and then cutting it off so you could still see the triangle outline. Itâ€™s so sad that I did that! But I really wanted to be one of those girls.”
The rest of her editorial was shot in a diner, which adds a very retro feel to the shoot which was captured by Craig McDean.
