Ask anyone what they thought of American Hustle and you’ll likely get some variation of this review:  “It was entertaining and I loved the costumes.” While we couldn’t agree more, we did notice that many fail to mention the scene-stealing performances of an elaborate comb-over, a poodle perm,  and a towering pompadour.  We’d like to acknowledge these silent stars, who expertly conveyed each leading man’s motivation—deceit, vanity,  and ambition. Still, we couldn’t help but drool over the Studio 54-era clothes worn by the film’s leading ladies— Amy Adams channels ’70s-era Bianca Jagger in furs, sequins, and floppy hats, while Jennifer Lawrence sizzles like a “science oven” in Halston-esque body-con dressses. Scroll through the slideshow above for some of our favorite looks from this Golden Globe-nominated film.
