Amy Adams' carefully crafted princess gown gave her a "fairytale moment" at the Oscars on Sunday.

The actress was one of the best dressed ladies at the Academy Awards on Sunday.

Amy wore a stunning strapless silver-grey Oscar de la Renta gown with a beaded bodice and a dramatic tulle-embellished skirt.

Amy's stylist Cristina Ehrlich revealed the princess-like ensemble succeeded in making the event a particularly special one for the actress.

“The first time she put the dress on, she was sashaying through the office,” Cristina told People. “You could tell that she was having that fairytale moment.”

Some celebrities have spoken about last-minute frock decisions before the Oscars this year.

However, Amy's look was one that was carefully crafted.

Cristina revealed the actress' gown was inspired by old black-and-white photographs.

The red-haired star reportedly took a selection of these pictures to show fashion icon Oscar.

One shot of a model walking through a doorway struck a chord with the designer.

“[Amy found photos] that were shown to Mr. de la Renta,” Cristina continued. “[There was one shot which] was sort of a real ‘aha’ moment for him when he saw this one specific photograph.”

Following this breakthrough moment the fashion house worked tirelessly to create Amy's vision.

The attention to detail included eyelashes added onto the skirt of the dress, beading and numerous fittings to ensure the gown was perfect.

“[Amy is] very realistic that she’s not a 5’11 runway model,” the star's stylist finished. “There were a lot of changes that we were doing up until the very final moment.”
