Amy Adams Transforms Into Andy Warhol for Garage Magazine Cover
That you, Amy?
It's Andy Warhol's world and we're just living in it.
The late artist's influence, consistently omnipresent in the art world, is having a moment in the fashion world, too, with designers like Calvin Klein's Raf Simons dipping into Warhol's archives for inspiration as well as an in-store exhibition.
Garage Magazine is also taking a cue from the pop-art legend for its latest issue — the first under editor-in-chief Mark Guiducci and creative director Brian Phillips — starring Amy Adams. The five-time Oscar-nominated actress channeled famous Warhol muses Liza Minnelli, Dolly Parton and Debbie Harry for the cover feature, taking on their iconic looks for Polaroid images modeled after Warhol's originals.
For the actual Inez & Vinoodh-lensed cover, Adams was transformed into Warhol himself, mimicking his self-portraits in drag. Styled by Rihanna's longtime stylist, Mel Ottenberg, the actress became unrecognizable as she channeled each character.
In the accompanying story, which lauds Adams for her ability to transform on the silver screen, the actress recalls the filming of her new "socially relevant" flick, Backseat, directed by The Big Short's Adam McKay. She explains that during production, she only spoke with McKay in character as Lynette, accent and all, and never as herself. “When we wrapped I finally dropped the voice, he was like, ‘No, this is too weird! I can’t even talk to you,’” Adams says.
Warhol, we're sure, would be proud.
