#WomanCrushWednesday: 9 Reasons We Think Amy Adams Is So Cool

#WomanCrushWednesday: 9 Reasons We Think Amy Adams Is So Cool

When it comes to fashion It-girls, Amy Adams isn't always the first person who comes to mind. But we think she's an oft-overlooked diamond in the rough, for one reason in particular—she has a very easy, approachable personal style that somehow always looks effortlessly cool, but she can instantly change into an über-glam vixen at the drop of a hat.

For this reason, we've dubbed Adams our #WomanCrushWednesday this week. And that's not the only reason—the five-time Oscar nominee is celebrating her 40th birthday today. Happy Birthday, Amy!

Scroll down to see nine reasons we love the American Hustle star!

    This is Adams' go-to shopping outfit. It's some kind of intriguing hybrid between an "I just went to yoga" look and an "I'm ready to hit Hollywood's chicest boutiques" look. And we love it!

    All this being said, Adams looks happiest when she is out and about with her four-year-old daughter, Aviana Olea Le Gallo. So cute!
