On the night of the 80th annual Academy Awards, red was a popular color on the red carpet, whereas strapless, one-shoulder, and feather-trim dresses are major styles. My favorite best-dressed for the 80th annual Academy Awards would be Amy Adams. She wore an emerald Proenza Schouler strapless gown with Chopard jewelry, and Art Nouveau French gold-mesh purse by Fred Leighton. Her auburn red hair was in soft and classy Veronica Lake curl style. Her makeup was otherwise minimal with slight peachy cheek color and red lip color.

The mermaid-style dress by Proenza Schouler was simple and sophisticated, and the emerald-green was quite dark and subdued. Amy Adams presented this look lively and elegantly. She accessorized the dress with gold accessories to highlight the dark green dress. The hairstyle was vibrant, soft, and wavy to compliment the simple and clean makeup. She was stunning in that classy old Hollywood glamour.
