Amy Adams In Oscar de la Renta – 2013 Oscars


‘The Master’ actress Amy Adams made a grand entrance at the 2013 Academy Awards red carpet today at California’s Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland Center.

Before the show even started, the nominee paraded out her own Oscar—Oscar de la Renta, that is—wearing a fairytale-inspired, princess ball-gown by the designer.

The powdery blue colour of this confection could have faded into the background, but not with its extravagant design that featured fluffy layers of feathery tulle that trailed several feet behind her.

Her train nearly needed its own entourage to maneuver down the red carpet line.

Like Jessica Chastain, Amy didn’t go too far with her accessories. With the sweetheart bodice, she skipped a necklace and wore a pair of simple diamond drop earrings and a braided rope bracelet.

Her auburn locks were pulled into a twisted updo, while a petal-pink lip played into the extreme softness of this look.

Up next for Amy is taking on the role of Lois Lane in ‘Man of Steel.’ Was she a superhero of style for you?

    I think that Naomi Watts absolutely killed it with her dress. Perfection. Not getting what wasn’t to love about it. I loved Zoe Saldana and Nicole Kidmans dresses but in my opinion it was Naomi by a mile. I also loved how Kristin Stewart was a hot mess, and Jennifer Lawrence looked terrific even falling over.

    Penélope Cruz. And Penelope looked better.

    could she look more washed-out?! big disappointment Amy!! 🙁 both the dress and her horrifying hair n makeup!! she looks like she was busy washing clothes and had to rush into a dress without bothering to fix herself up! *sad*

    Deja vu, yes but she looks great.

  5. Parvati February 25, 2013 at 16:24 #

    This is a quite nice look, but I’m not wowed.

  6. Felicia February 25, 2013 at 16:10 #

    Way too deja vu but still can’t deny the fact that she looks beautiful. Everything is styled to perfection

    Had to say something, HATE her hair

    I love this gown, but my first thought was “haven’t we already seent his dress on Penelope Cruz?”. Very similar to the one she wore in 2007. Beautiful none the less, though.

    She looks like a princess and I love it.

  10. serapart February 25, 2013 at 10:41 #

    reminds me too much of emma watsons dress, wish she opted for a colourful version of this….

  11. Amy February 25, 2013 at 10:14 #

    this isn’t groundbreaking but she looks great. It’s a beautiful dress

  12. Noey February 25, 2013 at 10:00 #

    Of course, she reminds Emma Watson ! The two dresses come frome Oscar de la Renta, but when you look both, they stay differents !

  13. Andy February 25, 2013 at 09:25 #

    Its Odd, The dress is gorgeous and the color works really well with her coloring but Im straggly underwhelmed.

  14. Aparajita February 25, 2013 at 09:18 #

    This reminds me so much of Emma Watson’s dress at the Deathly Hallows part 2 premiere.

  15. Jai February 25, 2013 at 09:08 #

    This girl’s never met a princess gown she didn’t like. Not my thing at all.

  16. Yeliz February 25, 2013 at 05:38 #

    I don’t care if this was done before, because I am in love with this look. She looks spectacular from head-to-toe and ranks very high on my best dressed list. I just LOVE it!

  17. MaddyEliza February 25, 2013 at 04:26 #

    Can you say princess?! She looks amazing! Yes it’s been done before but that doesn’t keep me from loving it. 🙂

  18. Sheron February 25, 2013 at 03:56 #

    Looked alot like Penelope Cruz’s Versace Gown in 2007 Oscars except that it’s in pink.

  19. Moxie February 25, 2013 at 03:45 #

    Deja vu.

  20. Marybeth February 25, 2013 at 03:41 #

    I think it’s lovely. Every Oscars should have at least one beauty in a princessy gown.
    The hair isn’t quite right but overall I like this.

  21. taksi February 25, 2013 at 03:40 #

    It’s been done before but the styling and makeup keeps the look fresh.

  22. moja31 February 25, 2013 at 03:10 #

    Too much dress, and she looks like she did her hair by herself.

  23. jones19 February 25, 2013 at 03:09 #

    Great look but done before.

  24. Fromchi-town February 25, 2013 at 03:09 #

    She looked beautiful on screen. I really liked her but its again something we have seen many times. Nobody blew me away on the red carpet. Nobody really took any risks.

  25. Nat39 February 25, 2013 at 03:00 #

    Not loving the updo but I think it´s one of the better looks of the event so far.

  26. vicky February 25, 2013 at 03:00 #

    Seen it before so many times. The best version of this kind of dress is Charlize Theron in bkuebfrom a few years ago.
    This is too pale.

    • TeaAtTwo February 25, 2013 at 03:05 #

      That’s exactly where my mind went to first when I saw this. Though she does look pretty there’s nothing new or exciting here.

  27. Christopher Teoh February 25, 2013 at 03:00 #

    Very much ENCHANTED!!! The Man Of Steel actress wows the crowd in this breathtaking powder blue Oscar de la Renta creation with sweetheart bodice and delicate ruffled train!! Love that she skip the necklace for only the drop diamond earrings and love the retro updo for this princessy creation!! Definitely BDOTW worthy for Amy Adams!!

  28. EmmaWoodhouse February 25, 2013 at 02:58 #

    YES YES YES! I don’t care if this is neutral or is similar to other dresses! This is one of my favorites of the night–it is unabashedly dramatic, beautiful, ethereal, and princess like! Thank you Amy for BRINGING the drama! It’s like she’s back in Enchanted 🙂 which makes me happy–and I love her hair and earrings! 🙂 Top Five for sure!

    • Aline February 25, 2013 at 06:15 #


      Yes yes yes! I love this look so much! She looks so incredibly beautiful.

      • Rashmi February 25, 2013 at 09:08 #

        +2. She has bought the much wanted drama on the RC! Simply Gorgeous!!!

    • Jess2 March 3, 2013 at 11:44 #

      +3, so stunning!

  29. Christine February 25, 2013 at 02:58 #

    So deja vu.

  30. ash February 25, 2013 at 02:56 #

    This is just so done before.

  31. Angela February 25, 2013 at 02:55 #

    I feel like Emma Watson wore a very similar dress at the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 2 Premiere. While it may be dramatic, this look is anything but new.

    • gurlygurl February 25, 2013 at 02:58 #

      Agreed, this is very familiar. The drama is what I expect at the Oscars however and I like that she’s kept it simple with her accessories.
