With the 86th annual Academy Awards less than three weeks away, Hollywood’s leading nominated ladies are busying choosing their designer gowns for the red carpet, and if you’re Amy Adams (nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for American Hustle), you already have an idea of what you’re looking for. “Sometimes I feel like I’m dressing in costume on the red carpet, and this year I want to feel like myself, so I guarantee you when I’m on the red carpet this year, you can know that’s a dress that I would wear. So it’s not a character’s dress.” We can’t wait to see what she goes with.
Usually Wears: Adams favors the Old Hollywood glamour look, choosing classic silhouettes from strapless gowns to flirty cocktail frocks, but puts a fun spin on each look. Whether it’s a structured neckline, a bold color or print (like this blue cutout Antonio Berardi gown from the SAG Awards), the star manages to keep a perfect balance of sexy and demureness.
Favorite Designers: Elie Saab, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, Roland Mouret, Valentino, and Dolce & Gabbana.
Wildcard Factor: Adams is fearless when it comes to color and she loves to experience with fun silhouettes.
What We’d Like To See: “I think the new super sexy Amy Adams is amazing and I love that she is dressing in the character that is she nominated for playing with that almost ’70s kind of vibe and picking up this fresh Valentino dress it’s like a modern take on that look,” says Fashion News Director Eric Wilson during InStyle‘s Google Oscar Hangout Debate. “I would love her to continue that streak at the Oscars and once again bring up a kind of a cool, revealing, fun, sexy look that you might see from the ’70s.”
Take a look back at all of Amy Adam’s best looks from this awards season in our gallery!
If the red carpet at the 2014 BAFTAs is any indicator, we can expect this year’s Academy Awards to be the most glamorous yet. In the midst of London Fashion Week, stars gathered Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London to honor the year’s most buzzed-about films while giving us a taste of the amazing gowns and couture pieces we’re hoping — and expecting! — to see at the Oscars March 2. Nominees Amy Adams and Cate Blanchett both went for sleek black ensembles, with Adams wearing a design by Victoria Beckham, and Blanchett opting for Alexander McQueen. Naomie Harris stood out in a berry number by Gucci, and true to form, nominee Lupita Nyong’O stunned in an emerald Dior gown, which she paired with gold accessories.
Get a closer look at each star’s red carpet ensemble, and see what everyone else wore in our gallery.
We’ve Decided the Oscar Red Carpet Fashions! Lupita, Sandra Should Wear Color; Cate Should Stun in Givenchy!Jan 28, 2014 @ 4:36 pm
We just wrapped our first #OscarsDressDebate Google Hangout and the votes have been cast! InStyle’s editor Ariel Foxman led a lively 30-minute chat with our Fashion News Director Eric Wilson, designer Rachel Roy, and Beth Buccini and Sarah Easley of N.Y.C. Soho boutique Kirna Zabete, hashing out their dream choices for what the night’s biggest stars should wear on the red carpet. We’ll have to wait to find out if any of their predictions prove true, but in the meantime check out the video and see if you agree with their picks. Another deep plunge for Amy Adams? Yes, please. More mono-hued electric color with minimal accessories for Lupita Nyong’o? We’ll cosign that. A Valentino wide-leg jumpsuit for Julia Roberts? Why the heck not!
We always get excited during award show season, but this year’s crop of red carpet walkers — which includes Lupita Nyong’o, Sandra Bullock, and Cate Blanchett — has been among the most gratifying we’ve seen in ages. From Jennifer Lawrence‘s fascinating collaboration with Dior to Nyong’o's Ralph Lauren risk, we can’t stop talking about what we’ve seen so far. And it’s all leading up to the biggest fashion night of the year, the Academy Awards!

What do Amy Adams, Lupita Nyong’o, and Sandra Bullock have in common? A Critics’ Choice Movie Award! During last night’s 19th annual awards ceremony, three of our favorite leading ladies took home a glass statuette—Adams (Best Actress in a Comedy), Nyong’o (Best Supporting Actress), Bullock (Best Actress in an Action Movie) at the Barker Hangar in the Santa Monica Airport—and they looked great doing it! From Adams’ pink draped cape-like Roland Mouret gown to Nyong’o's custom ivory silk crepe bandeau Calvin Klein Collection dress, the ladies sure set the bar for awards season gowns. “It reminds me of the sea,” Nyong’o said about her dress. “The sea makes me calm, and I was hoping that it would help with [tonight]!”
As the rest of Hollywood’s biggest stars, not only did they honor their peers—including Cate Blanchett (Best Actress), Matthew McConaughey (Best Actor), and Jared Leto (Best Supporting Actor)—they also celebrated this past year’s greatest works in cinema—from 12 Years a Slave (Best Picture), American Hustle (Best Comedy), to Her (Best Original Screenplay).
