Amy Adams: Handbags have to be versatile

Amy Adams has revealed what she looks for in the perfect purse.

Amy Adams chooses handbags based on their versatility.

The American Hustle actress has a great sense of style and it’s no surprise she was chosen to be the face of Max Mara’s latest A bag and spring accessories campaign. The 41-year-old co-hosted a party with the brand on Monday (19Oct15) to launch the collection and opened up about what makes the perfect handbag for her.

“I look for versatility, and something I can carry with me all day,” she told WWD. “I tend to leave the house pretty early and then get home quite late. I sometimes will take a small satchel inside that I can transfer things to, but mostly I get attached to one purse and carry it for quite some time.”

Amy looked beautiful as ever at the event in an all black ensemble topped off with a bold star-printed jacket. While her bag is usually full of items to get her through the day, for the night time event the star was able to come out with minimal supplies.

“This evening it’s pretty simple,” she smiled. “It’s my cell phone, blotting papers and lip gloss.”

Also at the event was Maria Giulia Maramotti, granddaughter of the Italian fashion house’s founder, Achille Maramotti. She took the opportunity to explain to the outlet why the Oscar-nominated actress was the perfect choice for the brand.

“A good bag is like a good coat. It’s timeless, you can wear it season after season, it’s practical and stylish,” she said. “Amy is exactly all of the above. She’s elegant, she’s real, she’s talented, she is a working mother — she embodies all the core values of Max Mara.”

Amy’s next project involves another fashion favourite, Tom Ford. The designer-turned-director is working on his upcoming feature entitled Nocturnal Animals and Amy is playing the lead role.
