Governors Awards 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

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 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.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – ‘Fruitvale Station’ New York Screening

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - 'Fruitvale Station' New York Screening

Octavia Spencer attended the New York premiere of ‘Fruitvale Station’ yesterday evening.

The Oscar-winning actress of course turned to her go-to guy Tadashi Shoji, who created this ivory piece for his muse with black-lace embroidery creating a framing effect and a beautiful silhouette.

Her cap-sleeved frock was styled with all-black accessories, Carla Amorim ‘Geladinho’ earrings and a ruby lip colour.

As much as I like this look, I think she would’ve looked even better in the blue-and-white version below.

You can buy the blue-and-white version of Octavia’s Tadashi Shoji dress from Neiman Marcus.

Octavia Spencer made a return to the red carpet following her trip to Cannes Film Festival to promote her latest movie, ‘Fruitvale Station’.

On Monday evening the movie had its LA premiere, held at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California, where the actress wore yet another Tadashi Shoji look.

The actress looked beautiful wearing a vibrant cobalt-blue lace off-the-shoulder dress featuring three-quarter-length sleeves and a blouson top, which was accented with a grosgrain ribbon belt.

As always, effortless, flattering – a match made in fashion heaven.

A simple updo and silver crystal-encrusted slingbacks completed her look.

‘Fruitvale Station’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

'Fruitvale Station' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

The ‘Fruitvale Station’ premiere took place during Cannes Film Festival this evening following the photocall earlier today.

Octavia Spencer: As expected, the actress wore a Tadashi Shoji custom gown. We’ve seen the actress don many gowns in shade of cream, lavender, black and blue, but never a fiery hue like this red tulle-and-lace draped cape sleeve gown. The colour is so striking and the style so very flattering.

Ahna O’Reilly: The actress selected an ivory fully sequined Elie Saab one-sleeve gown with cut-outs at the waist.

Melonie Diaz: Like Octavia, Melonie also opted for a bold colour wearing an Emilio Pucci sea-blue chiffon gown accented with a black beaded belt and styled with silver jewels. Once again she worked a bold lip colour.
