Amy Adams In Elie Saab Couture – 2013 BAFTA Awards


Amy Adams was the picture of haute glamour at the 2013 BAFTA Awards, held at The Royal Opera House on Sunday in London.

Any star knows you can never go wrong with an Elie Saab gown. So Amy, nominated for the ‘Best Supporting Actress’, opted for a smoldering number from the designers Fall 2012 Couture collection for her grand entrance.

The lustrous ebony evening frock with Chantilly lace and exquisite beading hit a high note, as did her top knot.

A daring front slit added an unexpected touch of sex appeal to the look and gave us a peek at her gold Casadei sandals.

Does Amy make it onto your best dressed list?

    The dress is amazing but created for a long-legged woman. It doesn t complement Amy s figure, it makes her top look square and long and her legs short. Too bad since these are a beautiful and classy lady and great dress but they don t match.

    She looks very beautiful!

    Ooooooooh, wow!! I really love it!!!

    I think its too close too tackyville. The top is too sheer, you can almost see her girls, and sheer top+high slit = too kardashian 😛
    plus im not the biggest fan of topknots

    Im in love with this dress, but I feel as though the lady shouldve made this more of a vamp kindve look with 50s style wave to the side, and a red lip, then everybodys jaws wouldve been dropping

    I wish it was a low elegant chignon but the rest of it is amazing! i love elie saab! and only he can make a dark color look different every time!

  7. Pene February 11, 2013 at 06:54 #

  8. rebecca o February 11, 2013 at 00:16 #

    I like everything but the dress. The fit is really bad.

  9. JJ February 10, 2013 at 23:44 #

    as a red head, it would have been nicer had she gone for one of the many teal pieces from that collection. this black lace gown doesnt suite her at all. It looks good on her, but the hair puts me off and those shoes are not cute. Do black strappy sandals not exist in celebrity land? overall no, she doesnt make the list.

    I usually love Amy’s style, but this is so overwhelming. I’m not really a fan of the dress to begin with (I prefer ES’s black looks outside if the couture collection) and it really is just a bit much on her

    • Lulu February 10, 2013 at 22:05 #

      I think she’s too short for the dress. Also, her body proportions… it’s not as sleek as the runway look.

  14. Kennedy February 10, 2013 at 21:35 #

    Gorgeous! Definitely best dressed although this gown reminds me A LOT of Kiera Knightley’s black Elie Saab gown she wore to Anna Karenina premiere.

    I am not in love with her hair, sadly. She usually has THE best hair. Either way, she looks gorgeous.

  15. Derro February 10, 2013 at 21:34 #

    Horrible and hideous!

    • DK February 10, 2013 at 22:03 #

      Disagree. It’s neither. She looks really good and this gown is exquisitely made. But to each their own, I guess.

  16. Christine February 10, 2013 at 21:23 #

    Not working for me

  17. TeaAtTwo February 10, 2013 at 21:21 #

    I wish the slit wasn’t so high but she still does look fabulous. The top knot and the earrings giving that extra oomph.

  18. Shelby February 10, 2013 at 20:56 #

    I love the slit! It’s unexpected from Amy. And I love the way she didn’t change anything. I would have preferred less of a statement earring because the dress is enough of a statement on its own. Love Amy’s styling!

  19. glenn February 10, 2013 at 20:52 #

    She look stunning !!!!!

  20. Rebyy February 10, 2013 at 20:48 #

    My favourite is jessica chastain, i don’t like the top of this dress on amy

  21. Dhppy February 10, 2013 at 20:46 #

    Ooh la la. I adore this! Gorgeous. She’s going on my potential BDOTY.

  22. Rachael February 10, 2013 at 20:36 #

    The dress is gorgeous, but I would have preferred a softer updo – the topknot is a bit severe.

  23. Aline February 10, 2013 at 20:34 #

    I just sucked in a breath. J’adore!

  24. Anne G February 10, 2013 at 20:32 #

    no for me
    Amy doesn’t have the height to wear this dress.
    The hair mmakes her look like a miss pageant.
    For some time, just an actress wearing a elie saab’ dress and she was elected best dressed. It becomes predictable.

  25. Ann February 10, 2013 at 20:26 #

    Gorgeous! Love it head-to-toe.

  26. EmmaWoodhouse February 10, 2013 at 20:25 #

    Wow, a lot of black at this event. I don’t like this look–the top is slightly bulky on her, but still pretty…it’s the skirt with its insanely high split that kills it for me. That’s always going to be tacky in my book. Waist up she looks pretty good though, which makes the overall fail of this look a disappointment.

  27. rebyy February 10, 2013 at 20:25 #

    jessica chastain is my best dressed, i don’t like the top of this dress on Amy

  28. Grace Patricia February 10, 2013 at 20:20 #

    Best dresses, of course.

  29. robbie February 10, 2013 at 20:20 #

    WOW! that is all i can say really just wow.

  30. Grace Patricia February 10, 2013 at 20:19 #

    Stunning! Happy to see she’s not wearing a nude embellished tulle gown.

  31. Nat39 February 10, 2013 at 20:19 #

    Not excited about this look on her.

    • Marybeth February 10, 2013 at 20:34 #

      Neither am I, though I think she looks nice.
      Perhaps it’s the color, which is not bad on her but not especially good.
      I don’t know. It just doesn’t grab me.

  32. Yeliz February 10, 2013 at 20:18 #

    Drop-dead gorgeous. She is certainly on my best dressed list.
