Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – ‘Black And White’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - 'Black And White'  Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Octavia Spencer hit the red carpet for the premiere of the film ‘Black and White’ at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival on September 6 in Toronto, Canada.

She looked ravishing in a green lace-accented Tadashi Shoji dress with a geometric Rauwolf clutch and EF Collection Diamond X ring.

This color looks gorgeous on the lovely Octavia, and I love the accent choices she made. The gold sandals and clutch are eye-catching and trendy, and the white pedicure is fun and flirty.

Simple curls and barely there makeup complete the ensemble.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2014 Emmy Awards

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - 2014 Emmy Awards

Octavia Spencer was a presenter at the 2014 Emmy Awards, held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California on Monday (August 25).

Joining the evening’s red-gown-clad group, the ‘Red Band Society’ actress continued to pledge allegiance to her favoured designer, Tadashi Shoji, in a custom gown.

Highlighted by sash-like draping that curved around an embellished, short-sleeve bodice, the dress delivered on drama.

A deep crimson Rauwolf octagonal clutch and ruby gemstone Lorraine Schwartz earrings maintained the colour scheme. That said, her barely-there makeup had me wondering if she forgot her red lipstick.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Octavia Spencer attended the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California on Saturday (March 1).

Relying on her favoured tried-and-true designer Tadashi Shoji, the actress wore a black-and-nude lace cocktail frock from the Spring 2014 collection.

Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get behind this look like I can with her other sleekly sophisticated Shoji statements.

Although I would have liked to see her in a more vibrant, sunny colour for this event, the sassy dress was not really the problem here, as it was a victim of its styling.

The black Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch was fine, but I wanted to rip off the black scarf that basically covered the entire ensemble whilst exchanging the ankle-strap platform sandals by Prada for a more streamlined pair.

Octavia Spencer In Michael Kors – AFI Awards 2014

Octavia Spencer In Michael Kors - AFI Awards 2014

Octavia Spencer joined many of her fellow style mavens at the 14th annual AFI Awards Luncheon at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills this afternoon (January 10).

The actress was a bright-spot in a lovely black and green pleated Michael Kors dress.

The decision to accessorize with leopard print is a huge ‘yes’ in my book. I love the way the clutch and shoes work as ‘neutrals’ against the bright green.

Simple EF Collection jewels, a white mani, major curls and understated makeup complete her look.

All I can say is, yes, Octavia, yes. Are you as smitten as I am?

Octavia Spencer In David Meister – New York Film Critics Circle Awards

Octavia Spencer In David Meister - New York Film Critics Circle Awards

Octavia Spencer joined Cate Blanchett on the red carpet for the 2013 New York Film Critics Circle Awards Ceremony held at The Edison Ballroom on Monday (January 6) in New York City.

Ever since her 2012 awards season run the actress has pretty much exclusively worn Tadashi Shoji, but on this occasion she wore a David Meister dress.

The actress wore a black jersey dolman-sleeve faux-wrap dress with a pretty beaded accent at the waist, which she styled with black open-toe shoes.

Even as someone who loves colour, I love this look. Simple, flattering, well styled and event appropriate. What more can you ask for?
