Amy Adams has learned a lot of things throughout her reign as one of Hollywood’s best-dressed starlets, but perhaps the most drastic change has been the height of her shoes. “The heels have gotten a lot higher,” Adams shares.

The Nocturnal Animals star stopped by the People / EW / InStyle Portrait Studio at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival (in a stunning Tom Ford ensemble, no less) and dished about how her red carpet approach has changed through the years.

“I’m more relaxed. I realize that it’s just a part of the job,” she says in the video at top. “Before it just felt like a lot of pressure, and now I just sort of try to have fun and recognize it’s just a moment and try to appreciate it.”

One thing that has stayed the same is her love of platform shoes. “In fashion, out of fashion, I love a platform because I have short legs,” she reveals. “If I’m wearing a gown, underneath are the most shockingly high platform sandals, so you learn to walk in those.”
