The It Girl of the moment, Amy Adams, is featured on the cover and accompanying editorial of W Magazine.
"In a place where, she says, "we were defined by the clothes we bought at the mall," her family didn’t have much money for sprees at the Limited. "If I didn’t get things on clearance, I wasn’t getting them," she says. "I would make fake Guess jeans by buying a cheaper brand with a triangle label and then cutting it off so you could still see the triangle outline. It’s so sad that I did that! But I really wanted to be one of those girls."
We're in disagreement on this one. Lorenzo thinks she looks great but Tom thinks she's playing against type and not doing such a great job of it. We're in agreement that it's a fine idea to make her up in an image that you wouldn't expect for her; it's just that one of us thinks she succeeded and the other one doesn't. Tom thinks that, for the cover shot, they should have interpreted the clothes a little better, rather than simply take the entire look directly from the runway and put it on her back. Lorenzo, in a fit of gay prissiness, hates the dark nail polish on her.
It's the whole retro/heavy eyeliner/bad girl thing that grates for Tom. It just doesn't feel like her and she doesn't look particularly comfortable selling it. Granted, she's done a lot of the expected Good Girl imagery up to this point and we both agree that something new was needed. We're just not in agreement as to whether this was the way to go.
What say you, ladies?
