Diane von Furstenberg and American Hustle

"American Hustle" has some great Diane von Furstenberg dresses! Michael Wilkinson, the costume designer, talks about the dresses by Diane von Furstenberg that Amy Adams wore.

My favorite: Jeanne in Green Twiggs. I've been coveting this for years. I have this pattern in the Laney shirt dress However, the snaps on the Laney are prone to unsnapping spontaneously. After an unfortunate event at lunch four years ago, I haven't worn my Laney. The reissued Jeanne is available now for full price at

New Jeanne 2 in Stone Leopard Red. Sold out, but see photo on Nordstrom I was lucky enough to get this dress for $100 (!) at the 2013 Diane von Furstenberg Summer Sample sale in NYC.  Now if only DvF would have sample sales again.

Vintage with Chocolate - pretty pattern.

And finally, an uncredited appearance by the "Utility" wrap dress in Bandana Red. Amy Adams wore this in an early montage when she's at a copier. I only got a glimpse - might have possibly been the "Mary Jo", but it was a wool wrap dress.

The Jeanne Green Twiggs is down to last sizes on and I am definitely tempted to splurge!
