Once again, one of my favorite redheads owned the red carpet!  Here is how to get Amy Adams red carpet look.  Enjoy!

In a novel twist, the inspiration for Amy Adams’s ethereal makeup look came from her Jean Dousset wedding ring. “It’s rose gold with pave diamonds and it’s simply gorgeous,” says makeup artist Stephen Sollitto. Sollitto intended the makeup to be a monochromatic statement. “It’s polished and beautiful.”
