Does Amy Adams's Critics' Choice Awards Gown Look Familiar?

If you tuned in to the Critics’ Choice Awards Thursday night — or even if you just caught up on the highlights this morning — you probably had a strong reaction to Amy Adams‘s hot pink gown. At first, you might have gone “Wow, that color is awesome. Who says redheads can’t wear pink?” And then you might had said, “Wait, why am I getting a strong sense of déja vu?”

RELATED PHOTOS: All the drop-dead gorgeous looks from the Critics’ Choice red carpet!

The first feeling you can attribute to Roland Mouret, who designed Adams’s off-the-shoulder stunner. And the second you can attribute to Adams’s co-star in American Hustle, Jennifer Lawrence, who wore a very similar look (by Oscar de la Renta) to the 2011 SAG awards. In fact, we were just reminiscing about how much we loved Lawrence’s look here, which is why it was top-of-mind.

Obviously it’s not a direct match, but something about the vibrant hue, the asymmetrical draped top, the black ribbon at the waist — and oh yeah, the stunning stars wearing them — made us stop and say “Wow.” We only wish we could hear what their arch-rival characters in American Hustle would have to say about this moment.

What do you think of the two looks? Let us know below!

Really, People? Your head is so far up Jennifer Lawrence’s behind that you only think of her? In fact, when I saw Amy Adams, that is the last thing I thought of. Just admit you wanted to find a way to include Lawrence into one of your articles.

I agree with BamsyPop – seriously, People – are you out of your collective mind?

So there’s a bow around the waist and it’s pink. Big deal.

When did they hire Stevie Wonder to write for People. These gowns look nothing alike and is really starting to SUCK

Marianne on

The only similarites are the fact that they are pink dresses with a black belt. Nothing else.

Emily on

I don’t think that those two dresses are similar at all… except perhaps the black ribbon/belt but even those are vastly different.

Come on. Find something else.

lylah on

These two dresses are not similar.

Me on

I agree with BamsyPop. The gowns don’t look that similar and Amy Adams looks much better.

Pat on

Except for the black bow at the was, I don’t see the similarity. But I love, love, love Amy Adams’s dress; not so crazy about Jennifer Lawrence’s…

Pat on

oops – that should be “the black bow at the waist”!

Hey Alex Apatoff, I think you might have meant to post this article tomorrow based on, “If you tuned in to the Critics’ Choice Awards Thursday night — or even if you just caught up on the highlights this morning…”
I know writing for People doesn’t have the same sort of journalistic integrity as writing for others, but proof reading by you and your editor should still be a standard!!!
