Amy Adams in Valentino at the LFF ‘Arrival’ premiere: lovely or unflattering?


Here are some photos of Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner at the BFI London Film Festival premiere of Arrival, their sci-fi film about aliens coming to earth and trying to communicate with us. Amy is the star and Renner is supporting, which he seems fine with. It seems like he’s trying to revamp his image a little bit after coming across like a sexist jag last year. The 2016 version of Renner is woke… or at least slightly more woke than his completely un-woke 2015 self. Anyway, that convoluted explanation is just my way of trying to figure out why Amy and Jeremy are on a tour of mutual admiration throughout the summer and autumn film festivals.

Amy’s dress in these photos is Valentino. I like it… for the most part. The deep-V needs a better fit because many were concerned that Amy’s girls were going to pop out at any moment. The bottom part has the butterfly graphic and it’s really pretty. I would love to have a sheet set that looked like this.

As for Amy and Jeremy’s thoughts on the election, Amy has said before that she’s obsessed with reading about politics this year in particular. On the red carpet, both actors responded to the Donald Trump tape.

Hollywood star Amy Adams has admitted she was left “stunned” by the leaked tape of Donald Trump making obscene remarks about groping women. Walking the red carpet at the BFI London Film Festival premiere of her new film Arrival, Amy told the Press Association: “I just love my news updates, I’m tied to my Google Alerts. It’s pretty remarkable. I think we are all stunned.”

She added that the themes of unity in her movie, in which she plays a professor of linguistics enlisted by the US government to decipher the language of extraterrestrials who have made contact, seem even more relevant as a result of the election campaign.

She said: “Probably more so than when we started filming. We started filming over a year ago and now I feel with everything going on in the world, throughout Europe and the politics that are happening in the States right now, there is so much fear and it’s nice to be reminded that hopefully we can come out of that fear together to a bigger solution.”

Amy’s co-star Jeremy Renner, who plays the scientist who accompanies her character on a mission to determine the purpose of the alien visit, branded the situation in the US “a debacle”, and added: “Let’s get united on ideas and principles of humanity. That’s my takeaway of the movie, the strength we have when we are united rather than how terrible humanity can be when divided.”

He also backed his old friend for the top office, saying: “I’m blessed to work with a woman I respect and admire, she is the main reason I wanted to be part of this movie. How about Amy Adams for president? I’ll be her VP!”

We could do a lot worse than Amy Adams as president. Think about it – she might seem meek and goody-two-shoes, but she would be tough where it counts. She could do better than Renner as VP though.

    I don’t like the top of the dress. It looks like she had her arm in a sling and it slipped out. Her styling is beautiful though.

  2. Don't kill me I'm French says:

    The dress would look better on a taller woman .Like usually her hair and makeup is great !!

  3. Abbess Tansy says:

    Other than the loose fit of the top, this dress is lovely and on her as well. I usually like her red carpet looks.
    I heart the butterflies at the bottom too.

  4. Locke Lamora says:

    Her hair and makeup are stunning, but I don’t like the dress.

  5. Almondjoy says:

    I’m a sucker for butterflies but I think the neckline, bust and cut of the whole dress is just kinda awkward.

    • Emily says:

      Funny, because I like the top but am sort of anti-butterfly, so I’ve decided I don’t like it. 🙂

    • Mrs. Wellen-Melon says:

      If the dress were a color more suited to Amy Adams – a jade green, maybe? – with butterflies in complementary colors, I’d like this better.

  6. minx says:

    I don’t like the top of the dress at all–not flattering to her breasts and the blouson effect makes her look thicker, and yet she’s so slender.
    Her hair though is unbelievably beautiful and her makeup is perfect; she’s gorgeous.

  7. MissMerry says:

    eh, the top looks haphazard, like she put it on wrong. It also looks way too big and where it falls below her bust makes her look really wide.

    The bottom just screams “MIMI” to me, I can’t take butterflies seriously because of Mariah Carey lol.

    I’m excited for this movie though.

  8. Dominique says:

    This dress reminds of me when you’re naked and dead asleep in the Summer heat and you hear a knock on the door and you try to bolt from bed and cover yourself up in a disoriented state and get all tangled up in the sheets.

  9. Bex says:

    Her hair looks incredible as always but I don’t think that’s her dress.

  10. Piper says:

    Love her, and think she’s beautiful, but that dress looks like she’s goong to a toga party. The top is awkward and I’ll-fitting!

  11. tracking says:

    She is simply gorgeous and I love the dress, but don’t love the fit in the bottom pic (which makes me worried about an accidental flash).

  12. tanakalee says:

    Genuine query – what does ‘Is woke’ mean?

  13. Lucy2 says:

    I don’t care for the dress, but she looks lovely. Really looking forward to this movie.

  14. jugil1 says:

    Her hair is absolutely gorgeous! So beautiful. For Renner…..I’ve got nothing.

  15. MrsBPitt says:

    The dress make her look like she is trying to hide a baby bump! I know, I know! I hate pregnancy watches, too! (hides head in shame)

  16. Jellybean says:

    She is gorgeous, but I don’t like the dress. The butterflies are nice, particularly the colour, but they need a better setting. As for Amy and Renner, they have been loving on each other since American Hustle, which was before he fell out with the press, so there is nothing new there.

  17. serena says:

    I don’t like that dress, it’s like a combination of two different dresses in one. Also, it’s too loose in the middle, not good but Amy is always beautiful.

  18. gen says:

    She is a thin woman and it makes her look a lot bigger than she is. Not a good dress. But I like the hair!

  19. BobaFelty says:

    I think if you have a big gap between the boobs, you need a tighter form-fitting top. Otherwise it looks sloppy and like a boob might kind of sway out of the dress!

  20. Kassie says:

    She’s so facially pretty

  21. Anare says:

    That dress looks like bed sheets. It’s a nope. Don’t like the cut or the color. She’s great, lovely, fine actor and I usually like her fashion choice but this look is hideous. Her hair and makeup are pretty though.

  22. Trashaddict says:

    I adore this actress, but she desperately needs to file her stylist. Now. Maybe hire her stylist from Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. Va-voom!
