On October 12, 2013, Actress Amy Adams walked the red carpet at the premiere of her new film, Spike Jonze's â€œHerâ€Ěat the 2013 New York Film Festival. The film will be released nationally on January 10, 2014.
The 39 year old actress arrived in nude pumps and a lavender tea-length (just below the knee) dress that had a bit of an edge to it- a very low cut neckline and some cutouts in the underarms. The dress received mixed reviews- some thought the dress was amazing, a â€œshowstopperâ€Ě while others called it a dud, as if she were shooting for sexy and missed.
My take on her look: I actually do not know how I really feel about the dress, because the way it is put together (to me) looks odd and visually unflattering. For starters, I do not like the long sleeves paired with the cutouts on top. If the dress were sleeveless or had cap sleeves it would look a lot better. Also, the thick horizontal stripe just above the hemline is very, very distracting. The dress already has a horizontal stripe around the waist, which actually works nicely wit the dress. Miss Adams also could have benefited from a necklace to accentuate the dramatic low cut bodice.
She also opted for a more dramatic hair and makeup look with this outfit, which also looked a bit odd to me. It was as if she were trying to be classy, ladylike, age-appropriate, and sexy and unfortunately missed.
Well, as they say, shoot for the moon and if you miss, you will still land among the stars.
