Amy Adams steals the show in the latest Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue, due for national release next week. Her glamorous gown and elegant pose are framed by a vintage Hollywood wave, the signature look of the leading ladies of the 40s and 50s. With one side of the hairstyle tucked behind the ear, the ‘do creates beatifying face-face-framing asymmetry. Yet the real magic is the ‘C’-shaped waves falling romantically off the shoulder. It encourages the eyes to look all around the face frame, taking in cheekbones, chin, lips and eyes. A little softer and less severe than the original interpretations of this style, Amy’s take puts the best of old world allure with modern beauty trends.

The Oscars are fairly conservative in regards to hair and makeup, which allows the gowns to shine. Unlike fashion week, most of the styles seen at award shows are wearable in real life. It’s a good place to get a sense of the trends for the coming year. Many of the styles confirmed established trends: beach waves (seen on Margot Robbie and Kate Winslet), old Hollywood glamour (on Lady Gaga and Emily Blunt) and pretty ponytails (on Amy Adams and Sofia Varagara). But there were also some surprises that signaled exciting things to come. Brie Larson’s embellished half up style, Rooney Mara’s sleek twisted updo and Rachel McAdams wet-look pleat were standouts. Click the notes to learn more about each look. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →


Amy Adams looks all style and class attending Fashion Week in Milan. Big sunglasses, a Max Mara trench dress and posh clutch, she’s got the new Hollywood glamor vibe down pat. We most love her flame-red hair. A layered, lengthy, side-swept look with a bit of flirty outward bend on the ends, it’s perfect for those that like a polished and elegant look.

You may have noticed a slight drift towards noting styles that reflect the Flapper-fantastic, roaring twenties. It’s because it’s this season’s vanguard look, and Amy Adams was one of the first to wear it –– this classic finger-wave updo is from way back when we were tuning in to find out who had the best style at the Golden Globe Awards. Elegant and refined, and different from a run-of-the-mill updo, it’s easier to recreate than you think. For tips for making it yours, click style notes.
