Does Amy Adams's Critics' Choice Awards Gown Look Familiar?

If you tuned in to the Critics’ Choice Awards Thursday night — or even if you just caught up on the highlights this morning — you probably had a strong reaction to Amy Adams‘s hot pink gown. At first, you might have gone “Wow, that color is awesome. Who says redheads can’t wear pink?” And then you might had said, “Wait, why am I getting a strong sense of déja vu?”

RELATED PHOTOS: All the drop-dead gorgeous looks from the Critics’ Choice red carpet!

The first feeling you can attribute to Roland Mouret, who designed Adams’s off-the-shoulder stunner. And the second you can attribute to Adams’s co-star in American Hustle, Jennifer Lawrence, who wore a very similar look (by Oscar de la Renta) to the 2011 SAG awards. In fact, we were just reminiscing about how much we loved Lawrence’s look here, which is why it was top-of-mind.

Obviously it’s not a direct match, but something about the vibrant hue, the asymmetrical draped top, the black ribbon at the waist — and oh yeah, the stunning stars wearing them — made us stop and say “Wow.” We only wish we could hear what their arch-rival characters in American Hustle would have to say about this moment.

What do you think of the two looks? Let us know below!

Wow! People has absolutely cracked it. My goodness, it looks like Amy Adams totally stole the dress from Jennifer’s closet. Oh, wait a minute … no, that wrong. They are both pink (although, a different shade of pink) and they both have a black bow (although, a totally different style there, too). Really, this is best you could do? Why not just let Amy have her moment in a glorious pink dress on her own and not bring up a dress worn in 2011!

I wonder if People even understand what the phrase Deju Vu means? ‘Cause they seriously got it wrong here.

They are nothing alike, I mean come on other then having a black belt at the waist, what is deja vu about it? You’re all crazy if you think the dresses look alike lol

Seriously People? These gowns look nothing alike. You’re stretching and just trying to start drama. I should have stopped reading People the moment you guys named Adam Levine sexist man alive.

Who cares. It looks nice, doesn’t it?

I agree with almost everyone else. These dresses are not similar and the looks are styled completely differently. readers now know that pink gowns with black sashes are as off-limits as red gowns with shoulder/neck bows. This article even gives Ms. Hathaway’s supposed flip out over Ms. Seyfried’s gown some credibility. C’mon Alex Apatoff, if you are going to write about fashion, make sure you know something about it first.

So the dresses are both pink and have a black sash…other than that there’s nothing similar about the dresses.Or the ladies wearing them!
