Adams, 40, known mainly for her good-girl roles, scored a breakout in “American Hustle,” as the mistress of a conman who puts one over on the U.S. government.
The David O. Russell film, from a screenplay written by Eric Warren Singer, was based on the ABSCAM scandal in the 1970s. Her character Sydney Prosser, hooks up with a small-time con man, Irving Rosenfeld, played by Christian Bale.
The film also starred Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, but Adams has no trouble holding her own against the young starlet, who is almost half her age.
She showed why last night in a stunning Navy Gucci gown that included rows of sparkling rhinestones and plenty of cleavage.
The event, held to honor Barbara Kruger and Quentin Tarantino, was sponsored by Gucci and drew an A-list crowd. Adams was also photographed with Jennifer Lopez and Kirsten Dunst.
Lopez also wore a stunning Gucci gown with a plunging neckline. Together, she and Amy were the cleavage twins.
