While she may not be able to buy Heidi Klum’s maternity designs yet, that isn’t stopping Amy Adams from looking fabulous during her pregnancy, thanks to designer Carolina Herrera! reports that the designer is reworking pieces from her current collections to create a custom-made wardrobe for the lucky mom-to-be. The Leap Year star tells that “They made my clothes for the entire press tour. They’re amazing. They did such a great job.” And the actress is wasting no time debuting her new sophisticated maternity pieces. On Jan. 4, Amy wore an aqua wool crepe dress for an appearance on Good Morning America. One day later, she stylishly stepped out in a gray mélange belted coat with red satin trim paired with a silk mulberry dress for a taping of The Late Show with David Letterman. Last night, the Leap Year star looked ravishing in a ‘lava red’ silk georgette dress at the movie’s premiere. What a fashionable baby bump! Tell us: What do you think of Amy’s red carpet maternity style?

I think she looks great!

I think Amy Adams looks great in her maternity clothes, regardless of where she gets them or how much they cost. Yes, she isn’t going to be wearing them forever, but why can’t she have great style while pregnant?! At least it isn’t like the Victorian times when women were put into seclusion as soon as they started to show!
Give her a break, people. She looks great!

Seriously, you people are going to gripe at her for doing what celebtrities do? She got herself some nice clothes. Get over it. She’s earned her money. And if you are mad at how much she makes, then stop going to the movies and watching tv because it’s society’s love of celebrities and entertainment that is giving her a pay check.

She looks great!

Pregnancy is hard enough without people critisizing everything you do. Including how you spend your money.

Amy, you look so cute! Go you!

Here’s how it works ladies: Carolina Herrera made these designs for Amy Adams to wear in exchange for this very press coverage. Amy Adams certainly didn’t pay for them. But of course she’s going to wear them, they look fabulous. Wouldn’t you?
The only star I’ve heard of that actually pays for her own clothes is Cameron Diaz. And as for being jealous of actresses getting perks – the amount they have to give up for their jobs (even though I’m sure they feel lucky, and they are) is tremendous. Just what they sacrifice in eating, and time spent working out and away from home for shooting, and all the time it took in training, and risking and auditioning etc etc etc. Then to have people criticize them for not shopping at Target. What a funny world we live in.

My bet is that Carolina Herrera is going to launch a maternity line. Btw people, learn to spell!

Amy’s job requires her to be on TV, in movies, in photographs, and while promoting this movie it IS HER JOB to create press to help the movie. Her JOB is to look good so, yeah, she’s allowed to have designers make clothes for her. Most of us don’t have a job where we HAVE to look good all the time and be on national TV – that’s why we shop the racks. She’s just doing her job and looking DARN GOOD while doing it!!

i took it as she was getting those custom made for the press she has to do for her movie…not just everyday life.


Okay seriously people. Amy Adams has worked for her money. Famous people are “real people”–their profession is just different, and what is expected of them is different. If she wore something “off of the rack” you knowww that there will be tons of people calling her out on it. Do not hold celebrities at double standards. If she has the money and wants to spend it, then she should be able to. Don’t criticize them for not changing the planet when all you are doing is reading

If I had the money well actually fame as I am sure she is not paying for these clothes, I would have my clothes custom made too! She is a lovely woman, she is always dressed beautifully, why that wouldn’t extend to her pregnancy I don’t understand. Moreover, as other people have noted why would she wear an outfit from Target to a red carpet event? Makes little sense too me. Maybe she should wear her hubby’s tee shirts and sweatpants like I did my entire last month of being pregnant! It was a super sexy and ultra trendy look! I am surprised you all missed me in the magazines!
