Amy Adams had 'nothing to wear' for Tom Ford meeting

The actress' new film is a real emotional rollercoaster.

Amy Adams flew into a panic before her first meeting with fashion designer-turned-director Tom Ford, because she had nothing "appropriate" to wear.

The Man of Steel star features in Ford's new psychological thriller Nocturnal Animals, but she was nervous about making a good fashion impression on the former Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent creative director before landing the role.

Amy also had very little time to prepare and had to call in some last-minute help from a stylist.

"When I found out he was in town and they (agents) are like, 'He can meet you this afternoon', I had been running errands and was in yoga clothes, but not going to yoga," she explained on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America. "So I was like, 'Oh my God.' I had to call someone 'cause I had nothing dry cleaned that was appropriate to wear..."

Amy reveals she opted for a chic jumpsuit and it wasn't a piece of Ford's own creation.

"I didn't wear Tom Ford," she shared. "I think I wore Theory. A smart little jumpsuit."

But the actress suspects Tom would have loved it if she had worn an outfit from his own namesake label: "He probably would have liked it, he would have liked my attention to detail!" she smiled.

Ford clearly took a liking to Amy, who stars in Nocturnal Animals as an art gallery owner haunted by a dark manuscript written by her ex-husband, played by Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is based on the 1993 novel Tony and Susan by Austin Wright, and the Oscar-nominated actress admits the shoot was a really emotional ride.

"It's got a lot of anxiety but it's really fun!" she insisted, adding, "Everyone I worked with's just fantastic in that film."

Nocturnal Animals also features Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Laura Linney, and Michael Sheen and hits theatres later this month (Nov16).
