Talk about a head-scratcher — is it really possible that Amy Adams is just now, for the first time, gracing the glossy face of American Vogue? Yes, this might be where a writer would take a jab referencing the hullabaloo kicked up by a certain April cover, but we're just pleased that this is happening — and oh-so-beautifully, at that. 

For the holiday issue, Tonne Goodman, Grace Coddington and Annie Leibovitz flaunted their postmodern prowess with a The Red Shoes-themed shoot oozing with surreal glamour and stunning numbers by Valentino, Alexander McQueen, and Giambattista Valli. Since the Big Eyes star once had ambitions of becoming a dancer, the spread is en pointe — not to mention the antithesis of the other buzzed-about portfolio hitting newsstands.
