Celebrities Hitting the Review today: Amy Adams, Anne Hathaway, Antonio Sabato Jr.
Amy Adams
Colour: Great colour on her sets off beautifully her hair, skin colour and eyes. This colour with this fabric adds nice substance and volume as well to her petite frame.
Shape: It sits nicely around her bosom, but since she is a lean column in her bodyshape she is missing a crucial essence for this dress and these are hips and waist. This Dress needs them as ” Fish needs water”. It looks too straight and structured around her waist. Though the fishtail gives a nice volume to her petite scale and balances nicely with the volume in her hair ,the hemline in front is too long.

I love the bag- it is not mainstream and it therefore gives an original look. Also, her earrings are adding a nice gloss to it. All in all she pulled together a nice sophisticated, glamorous and effortless look .

Overall Rating: 4****
Four Stars
Now the OTHER Amy:
Amy Ryan
Colour: A typical mistake for someone who thinks you need to match the colour just to your skin and what happens above the neck doesn’t matter. But I got news here- it does. Since the deep blue is solid from bottom to top without any breaks or warmer colour pick ups it seems like if her head is separated from her body. It is a total dead-end.
Shape: Firstly the half shoulder line is not a good choice when your head is relatively big. You don’t accentuate it you turn it down. The Empire line is ok but makes her look unproportional because her hemline in front is far too long.

The diamond earrings and bracelet are totally wrong as accessories to go with this dress- they all don’t’ do anything for her warm hair colour. Also, they are so boring and predictable for this dress that they are adding nothing to it. Her hair style is wrong as well for this classic, elegant look she is going for. It needs to be more neat and/ or dramatic.
Overall Rating: 2** Two Stars

Anne Hathaway
Colour: Spot on, but that’s about all that is good to say about the outfit.
Shape: She is one of the fortunate women who has the perfect hourglass silhouette with the right proportion, scale and height, so why on earth would you dress her with such a strong feature on the top. It makes her look unnecessarily top heavy – the Empire line is shapeless on her and messes around with her proportions and makes her look frumpy. Women who have a nice bosom need outfits which underline them and not clutter them with details as you do with women who are flat chested and need the extra volume at that part of the body.
Style: You need to be cruel to be kind here:
1. She looks like one of the magical creatures of William Shakespeare’s Midsummer Nights, who is quite out of touch with reality and what is current
2. This Greek/Roman Toga Style has been seen and done so many times on the Red Carpet- it is a an old hat
3. Having another “hit and miss” outfit in a row is unforgivable- either you made a mistake last year and you learn from it or/and you get professional help or your professional stylist needs some spectacles, because she is not dressing an actress who wants to be taken seriously- last year and this year outfit do have a comical satirical feel to it.
Overall Rating: 3*** ( only because of the colour!) Three Stars
Antonio Sabato Junior
Colour: Great combination for him and the occasion- it looks sharp.
Shape: The shape and scale of shirt and tie is good. Thought the jacket has the right shape and details for his body shape it is too tight fitted. It is stretching around his top button area and the result is that he got stretch marks around it. Also, his trousers are too narrowly fitted and they should been at least having a straight leg line to balance his top and give him some volume on the button. It gives him stork legs that might be a desirable look for a woman but not for a man. He looks as well unproportional in his suit because his leg line is bigger than his top half, which could have been helped with a longer or 3 button jacket. Also, the hemline of his trousers are far too short and exposing his shoes too much and as a result they are looking to much of a feature.
Style: The thought is right but badly executed. His ill fitted suit makes him unproportional- it gives him a strong body on too long skinny legs, which are dressed in oversized shoes. Last not least these are not the right type of shoes you were with such a formal suit and if you do then make sure you wear your trousers long enough, so it is not dead obvious.
Overall Rating: 3*** Three Stars
