I had a Keira Knightley number http://www.shinylittlethings.com/2008/12/03/sienna-miller-and-keira-knightley-at-the-british-independent-spirit-awards/ as the frontrunner for the last two days, until I saw this pic of Amy Adams at the Gotham Independent Film Awards in NY. This dress doesn't pop quite like Keira's dress does. It's beauty kind of creeps up on your more. The pattern on it is very Deco I think and absolutely stunning. The dress is also very figure flattering and I love the neckline, which shoes off the collarbone but doesn't allow for decollotage or cleavage, while still being very sexy by showing off her great little waist.
Very chic and very New York. The dress is Carolina Herrera.
