Amy Adams in very low cut Gucci at the LACMA gala: cheap or lovely?

The 2014 LACMA Art + Fiim Gala in LA

Here are some photos from the LACMA gala honoring Quentin Tarantino and Barbara Kruger. There were so many big names there that we’ve split up the coverage between Kaiser, Bedhead and me. First off is Amy Adams in a very low cut gown that I’ll assume is Gucci as they sponsored the event. This reminds me of some of Amy’s fashion this past awards season, which was very low cut. At that point Amy said that she paying homage to her American Hustle character, but there’s no easy excuse for this. Amy looks hot, it’s just that this dress would be just as lovely if it showed a hint of her décolletage instead of half of her boobs. It’s too much. Plus the silhouette is quite plain, I like a gown with more interest. Her styling is gorgeous though.

Kate Beckinsale mixed up her usual tight, revealing fashion in a pale loose silk Gucci gown outlined in metallic beading. The dress subtly showed skin with a high leg slit and open back. This is incredible and such a memorable look.

Demi Moore continued her red carpet comeback in a navy and black cap sleeve full length Zac Posen gown. The dress featured an intricate leaf pattern and was accented with Neil Lane jewelry. Demi looks so pretty and elegant here.

Sisters Rosanna & Patricia Arquette were both in Gucci. Patricia’s date is a guy named Eric White, an artist. I think that he’s her new boyfriend. Patricia is really working that red one shoulder dress. Rosanna’s look is a bit plain, but cool cape.

Riley Keough looked kind of miserable in a cheap black dress with a crop top tied over animal print lace. Awful and her makeup needs blending.

Let’s end with Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx. Both are dapper bastards in those suits but I wish that Foxx was smiling here. He’s much hotter when he smiles. That’s a great red velvet bow tie, Tom Hiddleston needs one just like it.

    Wow, I didn’t see it during the Rob rumors, but in these photos, Riley is a dead ringer for Kristen Stewart! I absolutely thought it was her until I read the name.

  2. Louise says:

    Demi looks the best of them all. A gorgeous gown.

  3. Abby says:

    I really like Kate beckinsale’s look here! And I haven’t seen Demi in forever. She looks better!

  4. MissTrial says:

    Good looks all around but Demi Moore looks tense and Amy Adams could have used better makeup and a seamstress , Patricia Arquette needs a brush. Riley Keough is giving me younger Drew Barrymore vibes. Kate Beckinsale looks lovely.

  5. Lahdidahbaby says:

    Kate B’s is the dress of the night. Perfect.

  6. Someonestolemyname says:

    Amy Adams is so beautiful. She looks great, even though those low open cut bust area gowns always make me nervous. She’s just a stunning woman, one of the beauties of Hollywood.

    Demi looks great.

    Elvis’s grandaughter Riley, is so pretty, a bit too much makeup, but those Elvis genes produce some smoldering good looks.

    Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx look wonderful, handsome, stylish.

  7. LuluBelle says:

    Amy Adams gets dissed for lots of cleavage while JLo gets praised for it. I don’t understand.

    • Renee says:

      ‘Cuz Amy’s supposed to be a good girl who is above using her body to get ahead, she has talent so she’s not supposed to do that. Personally, I think it’s funny when women do that, it kind of makes people uncomfortable. Maybe Amy was just feeling like getting her sexy on and went with it??

      • Kate says:

        I had the same reaction. So what….Amy isn’t allowed to just dress the way she wants? But other women are?

        Amy Adams has 5 Oscar nominations. She can dress however she wants and show off her body however she wants. She looks great to me.

    • T.C. says:

      Amy Adams can dress whatever way she wants and we in response can comment. That is just too much boob display for me personally. JLo’s boobs are half that size so her low-cut tops come across different.

      Yes Amy did that too last year as homage to her character, I think she realized that she got a bit more attention for the sexy look than her usual nice classy looks and is going to dress like this from now on. She has so far been someone that other women compliment instead of men. Plus she is again going for that Oscar.

      • LuluBelle says:

        But of course. IMO Amy has far more style and class than JLo. And she’s super talented.

      • Kate says:

        Or maybe, as a grown woman, she is just dressing the way she wants and doesn’t need to answer to anyone?

    • Someonestolemyname says:

      Amy looks better in her dress IMO, than JLO did in hers.
      She’s gorgeous and I don’t think she’s botoxed to death either, like some passing as natural beauities, Amy is stunning,

    • GlimmerBunny says:

      Yeah, I don’t even think this cleavage is very revealing. Amy looks lovely and very sexy.

      So does Christoph, the ultimate Silver Fox.

  8. Sugar says:

    The cut of Amy’s bodice is not flattering but the color is great. Beckinsale’s dress is better than her usual stuff but the color doesn’t flatter her and the too is too boxy. Also, her hair is completely wrong for the casual dress. She’s wearing ball gown hair.

    Everyone else just looks bad. The Arquettes’ dresses look like they picked them up at Macy’s.

  9. alex_r says:

    Amy looks beautiful and she certainly doesn’t have to excuse her fashion. It’s all about dressing for your shape – this dress would be risque on someone more endowed in the chest area. But Amy is very slim and has an understated upper body. The dress looks fine on her.

  10. nicole says:

    MORE CHRISTOPH!!! He needs to have another big film soon… I miss him.

    • GlimmerBunny says:

      He’s in Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes”, which is supposed to be a major Awards contender (it certainly looks great) so hopefully we’ll se lots more of him in the upcoming months. I love him too!

  11. Nikki says:

    Kate looks great; she almost always does. Demi looks better than in a long while, except I think the neckline of her dress is too heavy, really dragging down the entire look, and I think the dark lipstick does no favors for Demi or Kiley.

  12. Tig says:

    Kate B for the win/ just stunning.

    Demi- sorry, to me she looks like Mortia Adams. Re Amy Adams- love the color on her. I always wonder how those super plunging necklines “hold up” when the wearer is walking/sitting/moving- tape can’t work THAT well!

  13. Nikki says:

    Forgot to say, I agree that Amy shows too much of her chest, negating any elegance.

    • Kate says:

      That’s sexism. That’s a patriarchal construct that tells women that they have to cover up in order to be proper.

      Amy Adams is one of the classiest women working. Her class is not negated bc she felt like showing off her (lovely) body. I cannot with that.

      • nicole says:


      • Courtney says:

        It’s sexist to say a dress would’ve looked better with more material in the bust area?

      • Kate says:

        Yes it is sexist to say that a woman is less elegant because she is showing her chest.

      • Nikki says:

        Disagree with you. Edgy can show lots of skin, but elegance always implies more than reveals. I wouldn’t think a man with his neckline wide open or a guy in too tight pants was elegant either ; too try hard. I think you are confusing prudery and style.

    • maddelina says:

      I agree, too much chest exposed for the dress to be flattering on her.

  14. Birdie says:

    Don’t like Christoph Waltz. He is often rude to german/austrian interviewers and declines to answer in german.

  15. Kate says:

    I kind of hope that Amy Adams keeps showing up in low cut gowns that show off her goods because it seems to piss people off that a classy woman with 5 oscar nominations and a lot of talent might just enjoy wearing what she wants sometimes without any excuse. It makes if harder to put women in boxes when women we have deemed “good girls” decide to step outside the box you have put them in, doesn’t it?

    You go Amy.

    • Courtney says:

      I think it’s a shame that even someone with 5 Oscar nominations has to show her boobs to get attention.

    • Someonestolemyname says:

      Amy looks stunning, I’m no fan of the low cuts but Amy still looks gorgeous in that dress. iMO

    • Nikki says:

      There is a big difference between respecting each person’s right to dress however she wants, or deeming some looks more elegant than others. My comment was simply that it negated elegance; that’s hardly pearl clutching at the sight of boobs. But just as there’s a difference between dresses with a simple line or ones heaped with frills and bows, there’s a difference between hinting at what’s covered or putting it out on a platter. I usually find a hint of something much more elegant than it spilling everywhere, and I disagree that’s patriarchal thinking. I don’t find men’s overly tight pants elegant, or the guy who wears a low cut shirt open to reveal tons of gold chains. It is a style question, not patriarchal brainwashing.

  16. kri says:

    I really think Amy looks great. Yes, there is a bit too much boob, maybe. But there has been lots more on display. Riley…my god, girl, get a beauty blender spong or two.

  17. Guesto says:

    Amy is glorious, she looks stunning here. The dress shows her beautiful skin, figure and hair colouring off to perfection.

    I find that ‘cheap’ headline really sad.

  18. Size Does Matter says:

    In this dress I can clearly see why Kate Beckinsale is my husband’s forever … vadge? Whatever the female equivalent is of forever dong for a straight guy.

  19. Ginger says:

    Kate looks better than I’ve seen her in a long time. She’s such a gorgeous woman but her styling in the past has sucked. I hope whoever styled her for this event is kept on the payroll! As for Amy she looks beautiful and sexy as she often does. My first thought was did she put on a few pounds because her boobs look bigger. If so then keep them on because she looks fantastic! I haven’t seen Demi in a while and she looks good here. She looks healthy. Is she filming anything? I haven’t seen her onscreen in a while. And I agree that I enjoy seeing Jamie Foxx’s megawatt smile. Even when accompanied by a weird bow tie. :)

    • Dara says:

      @Ginger – my first thought too was that Amy’s cleavage looked a little more ample than in the past, I even scrolled through old CB articles to compare and contrast. They may be a little bigger but I think a lot of credit goes to that dress. Her Oscar (I think) dress was cut way lower, almost to the navel, but the way it was styled made it appear more covered. Either way, she looks fab.

  20. Sister Carrie says:

    This is the best look I’ve seen on Amy. Too much boob/cleavage? As if. No fear of escapage or nip slip–nothing pushed up to her chin . . . she looks great!

  21. mollie says:

    I’m here to admit that I’ve lost all objectivity when it comes to Amy Adams. She can absolutely do no wrong in my eyes. Guess I’m not fit to judge her any longer because I’ve hit the the total fan girl phase.
    Beckinsale looks utterly lovely.

  22. maddelina says:

    Agreed! Too much chest exposed for the dress to be flattering on her.

  23. Fred says:

    Kate Beckinsale = OMG

  24. kennedy says:

    I love Amy Adams. Her hair looks AMAZING. I can’t wait to see Big Eyes.

  25. whatsmyname? says:

    I think Amy looks the best, her red hair with the color of the dress looks amazing together.
    Kates hair looks awful with that dress.

  26. JenniferJustice says:

    Love Kate Beckinsale’s dress. Riley looking so much like KStew is freaky. Rosanna Arquette needs to do something with her hair. Demi looks so much better when she dresses age-appropriate. She seems uncomfortable, but she looks great. Not feeling Amy Adam’s dress. It’s neither pretty nor flattering. Sure, she can wear whatever she wants, and we can also give our opinions. Those plunge boob dresses are for one thing – attention and controversy. For the record, I don’t remember JLo being praised for that heinous green dress back in the day. I remember her getting a lot of attention due to it’s being controversial. I don’t consider that praise.

  27. Lucy2 says:

    Amy and Kate both look gorgeous.

  28. Naddie says:

    Amy’s look could be cheap… on a cheap woman. She’s so classy, can do no wrong. It’s always been about body language, not clothers. Also, a man can be cheap as well.
    Kate Backinsale sucks on acting, but man, she looks like a godess here. Flawless, one of the best looks I ever seen.

  29. Debutante says:

    I never understood the love for Kate Beckinsale. I just don’t find her attractive, ever. This gown is fine, definitely a departure from the usual too tight, desperate attempts at sexiness while exuding none at all, but this hairstyle is just hideous. It screams 1965. Yikes. Amy Adams looks great. Its like she has embraced her fantastic body . Go, Amy!

  30. Flower says:

    Amy is lovely but for me she just isn’t really sexy , more the girl next door type and dressing like Kim K isn’t going to make her sexy, it’s just too try hard and she is better than that. Kate Beckinsale on the other hand is naturally sexy looking and her simple slinky gown with glimpses of flesh is very sensual.

    • Kate says:

      All women have sexuality and trying to strip that from any women —especially women we have deemed “good girls” is gross.

      The truth is it makes you uncomfortable when a woman you stuck in one box doesn’t let you keep her there.

      Personally I roll my eyes when people decide “sexy” under such narrow terms.

      • Flower says:

        Sexy is an opinion, as I said in my post to me she isn’t sexy , others may think she is sexy but I don’t. I don’t need a lecture on a simple ‘eye of the beholder’ matter. My comment , my opinion. Your comment on the other hand speaks volumes about your own issues.
