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!

grdenstate: I think you have your days mixed up sweetie, it was posted on Thursday AFTER the critics choice awards. It’s okay, I do it too ;)

Except for the fact that they are both dresses and have black belts at the waist, there is absolutely nothing similar about these dresses. The person needs new glasses if they think they look the same.

@Guest who called me sweetie, which is really quite nice of you…

I understand tonight was the airing of the Critic Choice Awards. I know it’s Thursday. How the article is written, which again is, ‘or even if you just caught up on the highlights this morning,’ suggests I would have to time travel to tomorrow morning to watch the highlights of something that aired tonight. The tense in this sentence suggests that I would have already been able to catch the highlight reel.

At any rate, Guest, it is obvious to me that I cannot time travel to tomorrow morning’ new show that has the highlights at the time when this was written. Bravo for apparently you do!

Two totally different women, two totally different looks. Amy Adams looks classy and Jennifer Lawrence looks…

“If you tuned in to the Critics’ Choice Awards Thursday night — or even if you just caught up on the highlights this morning…” Did we forget that this wasn’t supposed to be published until Friday morning? And no, the dresses aren’t even remotely the same, much less close enough for deja vu.
