Amy Adams honoured at CDG Awards

Amy Adams was honoured with a top accolade at the Costume Designers Guild Awards.

The American Hustle star was given the Lacoste Spotlight gong, which "honours an actor whose talent and career personifies an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design".

Variety reported that Amy thanked costume designers for teaching her so much as she accepted the prize.

The actress, who wowed on the red carpet in a slinky teal gown, said: "Thank you for telling me the actual start date of a movie, even though you were told not to tell me and it might cost you your job.

"You also told me not to lie about my measurements. If you call me and ask me for my measurements, me telling you that I have a 25-inch waist doesn't make it true. And it makes it really uncomfortable after I eat breakfast.

"Also, don't complain about my 5:45 call time. Because if I'm there at 5:45, you guys are there at 3:45. Not only that, you stayed late to wash my 'things' - you know what I mean."

The Guild handed out awards for costume design excellence in film, television and commercial work at the event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Winners included Behind The Candelabra's Ellen Mirojnick, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire's Trish Summerville and Patricia Norris for 12 Years A Slave.

Four honorary gongs were given out, including the Spotlight prize for Amy and the Distinguished Collaborator Award, which went to Judd Apatow.
