We’re calling it now—November is the month of Amy Adams. The five-time Oscar nominee has not one, but two buzzy movies, Arrival and Nocturnal Animals, heading to theaters. And that means she’ll have lots of opportunities to hit the red carpet over the next few weeks.
So what can we expect the star to show up in for her big premieres? Besides one or two pieces from Tom Ford, who directed the drama Nocturnal Animals, Adams will no doubt lean on super stylist Petra Flannery to help her find a few red carpet winners that fit her feminine style. “Amy loves clean silhouettes. So anything really modern and chic is a go-to. And streamlined cuts work really well on her body too,” Flannery.

And as it turns out, Adams isn’t one of those actresses who will wear just any pretty thing that someone hangs on a rack. She likes to be hands-on during the selection process. “Since Amy is really confident in her personal style, she already knows what will work on her and what won’t,” Flannery says. And her pure enthusiasm for finding just the right dress is a stylist's dream. "We love to get together and go through sketches that designers have sent to her. Sometimes there are as many as eight to ten variations of one dress. It’s nice to be able to sit down with a client, talk it through, and collaborate. We always try to find just the right balance for each event.”
