Tabatha's Takeover: Why Amy Adams Is a 'Perfect 10'

Amy Adams

We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the best — and worst — celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she discusses Amy Adams, who wore a floral-print Dolce & Gabbana dress to a Hollywood screening of On the Road over the weekend:

Amy Adams, you are as cute as a button and styled to absolute perfection if I must say so! Your hair, makeup and accessories are simple and not overdone which is important with a dress like this.

First, let’s talk about the dress. I love it not because it’s Dolce & Gabbana (because I do love me some Dolce & Gabbana), but because it’s a lot of dress and you have the perfect shape to pull off a full skirt like this. The length is flattering and hits perfectly where it rightfully should. The slightly pointed top of the neckline is beautiful and screams “old Hollywood,” and I adore the way it nips at your waist. And those delicate ankle-strap shoes are the absolute perfect balance for this dress — and that’s tricky to achieve with a full skirt!

There is absolutely nothing negative I can say about your hair and makeup, either. It was a smart move for your hairstylist to put your hair up like that with a little volume on the top. It is a great balance for the width of the skirt. Makeup is clean and fresh. Overall I give you a perfect 10!

Tell us: Do you agree with Coffey’s critique — or was she too nice this time? Let us know in the comments below!

Amy Adams is gorgeous, intelligent, and an incredible actress. She better win the Oscar this year.
Also, she is aging gracefully and naturally. Plus, her daughter is adorable.
But I have to slightly disagree with this critique. From the waist up? Perfect! Stunning. Sexy yet wholesome. Just like Amy.
But the full skirt? Not a fan. Amy has an amazing body. She needs to show it off more.
Yes. I’m a guy. lol.

I love everything about what she is wearing, her hair and whatnot. However, I think the length of the skirt should have been a teensy shorter to show her beautiful gams.
