Octavia Spencer returned to the red carpet appearance for the second day in a row for the 2012 AFI Awards which took place in LA this afternoon.

The Critic’s Choice ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for ‘The Help’, wore yet another Tadashi Shoji dress, this time from the designer Spring 2011 collection.

She looked gorgeous her black and nude lace illusion v-neck cocktail dress with a black waistband. She making some inspiring choices on the red carpet and we love her for that so long may it continue.

As Octavia has been wearing her hair slicked back recently, it’s a refreshing change to see her hair down, particularly in such glamorous curls. This may be her best red carpet look thus far.

Black heels, a black clutch and large onyx cocktail ring provided the finishing touches to her chic daytime look.
