The Oscars are just a few weeks away and, to our pleasure, Hollywood is buzzing with celebs congregating at luncheons, dinners, photo-ops and then some more luncheons and dinners. While browsing through some of the images from these star-studded events, I stumbled upon Amy Adams in a purple dress that made me cringe and disapprovingly shake my head.
Tsk-tsk, Amy… This is not how you strike a pose, unless you are someone’s unmarried aunt in the privacy of your own home on a Sunday afternoon, and you want to throw a last cursory look in the mirror to make sure you haven’t tucked your skirt into the back of your panties (I have done that) before you go downstairs to bake a banana bread. I mean, this dress is so unflattering! Amy has always given me the pleasant vibe of a homely, sweet-natured woman, and I think she’s a brilliant actress, but the dress… no.
Adams did a little better in a lace LBD at the dinner for the Hollywood Reporter 2013 Oscar nominees last night, yet again, something is amiss. Is it the tan platform shoes? I don’t know. Enlighten me.
