Among the top Hollywood redheads, Amy Adams has certainly made her an impression. Recently she has been out on the red carpet looking lovely and polished – solidifying her position as a full blown A-list celebrity.

But this Parade Magazine cover is a step in the wrong direction. Between the bad airbrushing, awkwardly positioned arms and messy hair (if they went to such great lengths to make her face look perfectly smooth, could they not have given her red locks a bit more  of a sheen?)…it’s just disappointing. I’m sure this is a pretty dress, and Amy Adams probably looks very pretty in it. But the unflattering pose and everything done to the photo after it was taken makes Amy look less than enchanting.

It’s not good when you looked hotter in a nun outfit than on the cover of a magazine.
