With striking red hair, a signature pose—one hand on the hip—and plenty of star power, it’s nearly impossible to ever miss Amy Adams on the red carpet. Of course, it also helps that the actress also tends to opt for bold, notice-me gowns in primary hues that help her standout in a sea of neutral colors and metallics. And with five Academy Award nominations, and seven Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild noms apiece, the actress has been a staple on the awards circuit year after year, giving her plenty of options to show off her cheerful style. Here, in honor of her birthday, a look back at her most impactful red carpet moments.
