Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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 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 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?

Governors Awards 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

Joining Lupita Nyong’o and Angelina Jolie on the red carpet, these stars also brought their own brand of glamour to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards, held at the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center in LA on Saturday evening.

Jennifer Garner: The actress chose a black, multi-strap Dolce & Gabbana frock, which she styled with Neil Lane jewels, a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, and black Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps. Natural makeup and swept-back hair complemented her more casual approach to cocktail dressing.

Octavia Spencer: In true Octavia fashion, the star wore her beloved Tadashi Shoji, selecting a red satin dress detailed with black lace at the shoulders and neckline and a sweet black bow belt at the waist. She accessorized with a medley of simple black accessories — a wrap, Rauwolf clutch, and heels, to be exact — and partnered the look with soft waves.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus: The ‘Veep’ star stepped out in a sleeveless, floor-length David Meister gown with a subtle front slit and metallic-covered keyhole. Sleek black Casadei sandals, a black Roger Vivier clutch, and shiny, straight locks completed the look.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - 2013 Hollywood Film Awards

Octavia Spencer attended the 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California yesterday evening.

Yes, she wore Tadashi Shoji – it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

On this occasion the designer created this black chiffon dress with blue embroidery for his muse which was inspired by his Fall 2013 collection.

I love the youthful feel from this look, especially when styled with those Giuseppe Zanotti black platform cut-out booties.

A black Edie Parker clutch and an updo with wavy tendrils completed her look.
