Amy Adams in Christian Dior at the HFAs: too plain or pretty?

At last night’s HMAs, Amy Adams presented the Hollywood Actor Award to Benedict Cumberbatch. Kaiser covered Bendy here. Amy was in a sequin cap sleeve Christian Dior which fit her like a glove. This looks like the perfect holiday dress, I love the colors in this. Great showing by Amy and those cranberry shoes are perfect, they’re by Paul Andrew.

Here’s Hilary Swank in Oakwell Couture. She presented the Hollywood Screenwriter Award, which went to Gillian Flynn for Gone Girl. I really like that gown, she looks incredible and the effect would be elegant if it wasn’t for her styling. On camera, her high top pony looked goofy and those giant round earrings also distracted from the dress.

The Hollywood Film Awards 2014

Geena Davis presented the Hollywood Career Achievement Award to her old costar, Michael Keaton. The clips they played got me nostalgic for the late 80s. Geena and Michael starred in Beetlejuice (1988) and Speechless (1994) together. Keaton is getting a lot of buzz now for Birdman, which should score him an Oscar nom. I don’t have much to say about her dress or anything, she looks great and I just enjoyed seeing Geena and Michael together again!

Finally here’s Janelle Monae looking quirky cute in Kate Spade. I like that she has her own unique style but that it seems somewhat effortless and not try hard. Jenelle performed her song “What Is Love?” from Rio 2, which won the Hollywood Song Award. Props to her for performing live and not lip syncing. Her speech was really nice too.

    Hillary Swank and Amy look good. Hillary’s dress is more flattering though.
    Amy is such a beauty, so pretty.

  2. AntiSocialButterfly says:

    Pretty lady; not so pretty dress & styling. She looks like she needs an easel, brush, and palette.

  3. VanCityLioness says:

    Geena Davis is amazing. I love the work she’s done for helping promote gender equality in all forms of media. Amy Adams looks fine and I even like Hilary Swank dress despite the fact it looks like a dress made from curtains. I don’t know who Janelle is and I hate what she’s wearing.

    P.S. Is it just me or do Hilary Swank and Jennifer Garner look like twinsies in the face.

  4. someonestolemyname says:

    Geena Davis figure looks good, but I don’t like her dress, it looks like a long tennis sweater.

  5. Lucy says:

    I’m so happy you covered Janelle! Wished you did it more often.

    • hunter says:

      Is she wearing a Flipper like they do in Toddlers & Tiaras?

      Her “teeth” look blindingly white and fake.

    I actually thought Hillary looked good here. As ultra scary thin as she always has been… she look like she has been eating lately. Still whippet thin… just not in a scary way. Her face looks softer.

    (And yes.. I see the resemblance between her and Jennifer Garner too. Lots of teeth… and Jennifer used to be scary skinny too.)

    I like that Geena Davis is aging gracefully. And stop screwing with her face.

    I am loving that Micheal Keaton is getting some industry love this award season. He is so gracious about the attention. And always looks thrilled to be part of the hustle. Keaton is always a great interview… I saw him recently on Letterman and he is just charming. There was a recently write up for him in Entertainment Weekly too! I like to see this momentum continue for him and Birdman.

      I love Michael Keaton–I was watching the old Batman movies yesterday….he was so charming.

  7. Nick says:

    Yay! I love Janelle. Such an awesome artist.

  8. Artimis says:

    Listen I love Janelle Monae, her look and her music, but in what world is that not try-hard? What measure are we using to grade these people? whay the hell does ‘try-hard’ even mean? God, I’m the grumpuss today :D

  9. Ann says:

    All the ladies look lovely.

  10. Kate says:

    Amy looks beautiful as usual but I wish she would have left her beautiful hair down. Still, I get that it’s easier sometimes to just have your hair out of your face.

  11. Venuslotus says:

    Hilary looks really pretty. I like Amy’s shoes, that color is amazing.

  12. AlmondJoy says:

    Love Janelle Monae soo much! Excited to see her here. Change is good 😉👍

  13. INeedANap says:

    Of course Janelle Monae sang live! She is supremely talented. More of her please!

  14. Mar says:

    I hate Amy’s hair and her dress makes her look 50

  15. Brionne says:

    Janelle Monet is really talented! I’m not crazy about the hat though.

  16. LAK says:

    Is that the first time Janelle has been seen in a dress on a RC? She looks cute.

  17. whatsmyname? says:

    Yaaaay Janelle! She looks cute :)

  18. santana says:

    I don’t remember where I read it or heard the joke but any time I see Amy Adams all that comes to mind is Amy AMISH. She really gives me the amish/mormon vibe. Not making fun of any religion, really, but she really looks like she belongs to those.

  19. lucy2 says:

    I love Amy’s whole look, and Hillary’s dress.
    Is Geena doing the filler thing? Because it sure looks like it.

  20. LaurieH says:

    I like both Amy Adams’ and Hilary Swank’s dresses – but I do not like their hair. Amy’s hair looks too school marm-ish and Hilary’s hair is awkward on top. I do NOT like Geena Davis’ sweater dress. It looks like a long tennis sweater. Janelle looks cute…minus the neon yellow toenail polish.

  21. Cali2002 says:

    Amy looks soooo old and boring in this get-up and she’s surely not old, not sure of the latter, but I think she is gorgeous with terrible style – Helen Mirren dresses more youthful than she does!

  22. Sarah says:

    Is it just me or is Michael Keaton looking hot?

  23. Magnolia says:

    That second pic of Amy — I feel like Nicole Kidman takes that to her plastic surgeon’s office and says “make me look like her!”

  24. Lily says:

    I am so done with Dior.
