Amy Adams responds to Valentino controversy: 'Truly appalling'

This is a major faux pas for a fashion house.

Amy Adams attended the funeral of Philip Seymour Hoffman over the weekend. Hours after the funeral, design house Valentino took a paparazzi photo of Adams entering the church and blasted it out on social media, touting that the actress was carrying a Valentino bag.

Valentino USA issued a statement on Twitter the next day in light of the company’s insensitive press release. “We regret releasing a photo of Amy Adams with a Valentino bag. Unaware of the circumstances it was a mistake and we apologize to Ms. Adams.”

Adams’ rep also clarified to E! News that the Oscar nominee “is not a paid spokesperson for Valentino, and the suggestion she would use this moment to participate in a promotion is truly appalling.”

Costume designer Michael Wilkinson on 'American Hustle' and 'Batman vs. Superman'

Much has been written about Michael Wilkinson’s Academy Award-nominated American Hustle wardrobe, but the praise isn’t lost on the costume designer.

“This film has been a tremendously exciting journey for me,” Wilkinson — whose past credits include Man of Steel, 300, Watchmen, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Parts 1 & 2 – told EW. “The most surprising thing for me is that people seem to have had a personal reaction to the film. They really love the clothes… There’s talk of a reemergence of 70’s styling in the way people are dressing themselves. I’m thrilled the exuberance and the self-expression of the 1970’s is resonating with people today. People seem to want to translate it into their own wardrobes and that was something we absolutely weren’t thinking about when we made the film.”

The Oscar, BAFTA, Critics Choice, and Costume Designers Guild Award nominee is already hard at work re-imagining some of the iconic superhero costumes for director Zach Synder’s highly anticipated Batman vs. Superman, set for release in May 2016. “It’s incredibly thrilling,” he said of the experience. “I love going to work every day. We’re so excited about creating the next Batman and Wonder Woman for the 21st century. It’s great to think about making these characters relevant and really resonate with audiences today. It’s such a thrill to be working with our director Zack Snyder. He’s creating such an exciting universe for this film. I think it’s something we’re all going to be really proud of.”

Critics' Choice Awards: Who was the best dressed Oscar-nominated actress? -- POLL

Just hours after the nominations were announced — and four days after the fashion frenzy at the Golden Globes — many of this year’s Oscar contenders hit the red carpet at the Critics’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

Lupita Nyong’o, Sandra Bullock, Amy Adams, Julia Roberts, and Cate Blanchett represented the Oscar-nominated actresses.

Who will be the best dressed movie actress at the Golden Globes? POLL

EW’s Anthony Breznican has shared his predictions for the Golden Globes movie categories, but who will win the red carpet?

To narrow down the field I chose five of the most consistently stylish nominees, but I always love a good fashion upset.

Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle) is the face of the Miss Dior handbag line, so it’s safe to assume that, even though her Dior gown tripped her up at last year’s Oscars, the best supporting actress nominee will wear a gown from the French fashion label. Cate Blanchett’s (Blue Jasmine) style, like her acting, is unparalleled — who else could pull off a pagoda-shouldered, red lacquer sequined dress? — so I’ve got high expectations for the best actress contender. No one does red carpet romantic better than best actress nominee Amy Adams (American Hustle), thanks in part to designer pals like Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera. In just a few short months, Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) has earned as much attention for her style as she has for her breakout role, which earned the newcomer a nod in the best supporting actress category. Technically, Sandra Bullock (Gravity) is a red carpet veteran, but best actress nominee could teach the up-and-comers a thing or two about getting dressed for the red carpet.

Amy Adams' sexy, scene-stealing 'American Hustle' swimsuit

Amy-Adams-American-Hustle-PS.jpg

The costumes Amy Adams wears in American Hustle (in theaters Dec.13) leave little to the imagination. You can blame (or thank) the ’70s for that.

In director David O. Russell’s sprawling period drama, Adams plays the part of conniving con woman Sydney Prosser. “She’s a woman from a small town who moves to New York to reinvent herself and she becomes the most sophisticated, confident dresser in Manhattan over the course of the film,” costume director Michael Wilkinson told EW. “She had like 50 [wardrobe] changes over this gradual shift.”

Adams’ character required her to be a bit of a chameleon, alternating between conservative ensembles and hyper-sexualized looks. “She’s playing a small time hustler who gets more sophisticated with her hustle,” explains Wilkinson. “It involves accents and costume changes and lots of flirtation and using her amazing physical appeal to get the situation where she wants it,” he adds.

But that swimsuit is another story.
