Amy Adams's style evolution in 59 photos: how 'Enchanted' star became red carpet princess

The 'American Hustle' actress is arguably Hollywood's reigning champion when it comes to finding the ultimate floor-sweeping gown

There's no Doubt about it – Amy Adams has found her style signature, and shows no signs of deviating from the tried-and-tested formula.

The American actress, 47, appears to have settled on her red carpet approach early in her career and, with a penchant for timeless block-colour dresses, has managed to avoid falling foul of dated trends.

The Golden Globe Award winner, who also has six Oscar nominations under her belt, made her on-screen debut in 1999 satire Drop Dead Gorgeous. However, it was her turn in the 2005 indie Junebug that is considered Adams's breakout role, netting her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Since then, the star has become a familiar face on the red carpet, appearing in acclaimed films such as American Hustle, Arrival and The Fighter. Adams has also branched into TV in recent years, starring in HBO mini-series Sharp Objects in 2018.

And, much like her ever-growing CV, the actress has an evolving Rolodex of designers on hand to help her add some extra sparkle to premieres, parties and awards ceremonies.

Often turning to legacy labels such as Valentino, Oscar de la Renta and Versace, sporting romantic, form-fitting numbers, Adams has also championed Lebanon's Elie Saab on many an occasion.

While she veers towards sculptural silhouettes in deep jewel tones, from time to time the Enchanted star also dabbles with more adventurous fabrics, whether chain mail-like sequins by Tom Ford or metallic floral prints by Gucci.

Here, we take a look at how the star's style has evolved throughout her time in the spotlight.
