WHERE & WHEN: 85th Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon on February 4, 2013.
WEARING: J. Mendel dress, Casadei shoes & Amrapali jewelry
MY VERDICT: Amy slipped into a vivid, gorgeous purple abstract floral pattern when she attended the Oscar nominee luncheon today. The 38-year-old actress selected the long-sleeve silk dress from the Spring 2013 collection by J. Mendel, which features contoured piping detail at the bodice and blending patch pockets at the front of her hips. After that very pale gown she wore to the Golden Globes last month and so many LBDs before that, it was nice to see Amy back in some lively color.
With the dress as the focal point, Amy wore ivory Casadei platform pumps to match the lightest color in the pattern. I don’t think the heaviness brought down the delicate fabric, but I believe a slimmer shoe would have provided a much more streamlined appearance. Amrapali earrings, minimal makeup, and a low ponytail with straying tendrils helped Amy complete her look.
