Actress Amy Adams has landed a fashionable new role as the face of luxury Italian clothing brand Max Mara.

The Oscar winner will feature in the company's autumn/winter (14) ads, wearing cosy outerwear and oversized sunglasses and posing with a caramel leather handbag.

Adams takes over the role of spokesmodel from fellow screen star Jennifer Garner, the wife of her Batman Vs. Superman co-star Ben Affleck.
