89th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon Red Carpet Roundup

More stars were also in the mix at the 89th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon, hosted on Monday (February 6) in Beverly Hills.

Viola Davis: A simple sheath dress took on bold new meaning with this Bottega Veneta geometric design. I love how Viola skipped plain black pumps in favour of a pair with pale-pink detailing.

Laura Dern: The dark mustard-y hue of this Roksanda gown is not an easy one to wear—nor is the satin material. With two strikes against the dress, perhaps a vibrant lip colour would have helped.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2017 SAG Awards

Octavia Spencer looked stunning at the 2017 SAG Awards in LA on Sunday (January 29).

The actress wore a custom designed Tadashi Shoji gown with a ruched neckline and peplum detailing.

I always love Octavia Spencer’s red carpet choices, and tonight is no different! While she chose the most simple, classic of colors, there is so much detailing and interest to the gown, I can’t stop staring at it! And it is obvious that it was created just for her–the fit is simply impeccable.

I am also crazy about her choice of turquoise jewelry, and that fierce smoked-out eye.

Are you loving Octavia’s look as much as I am?

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji & Laura Basci – BAFTA Tea Party & 2017 Golden Globe Awards

Octavia Spencer was also at the BAFTA Tea Party on January 7 at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles before attending the 2017 Golden Globe Awards on January 8 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, where she was nominated as Best Supporting Actress for ‘Hidden Figures.’

BAFTA Tea Party: With another look from her go-to designer, Tadashi Shoji, the actress edged up her lace burgundy top and flouncy skirt with a black leather jacket.

2017 Golden Globe Awards: Instead of a gown, she was one of a few actresses who wore the pants in the family at the Golden Globes. Her Laura Basci midnight-blue suit received a dressier twist with satiny tonal lapels and racing stripes down the pant. What really caught the eye, though, was her 40-carat Lorraine Schwartz emerald ring, which is her birthstone. I would have never predicted Octavia to wear this, but it is nice to see her stepping outside her more expected style pattern.

2017 Palm Springs International Film Festival Film Awards Gala

The 28th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Film Awards Gala was held at the Palm Springs Convention Center on January 2, 2017 in Palm Springs, California, where a host of stars got the year started in style.

Kirsten Dunst: The actress glistening wearing a custom Ralph & Russo Couture gown, however, I had a craving for something to really make this look pop more—even brushing her hair back might have done the job to show off those statement earrings.

Ruth Negga: A newcomer on the scene, Ruth Negga had a princess moment in her whimsically embroidered Valentino Spring 2017 gown, which featured a fanciful innocence despite the sheer transparency factor.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – ‘Insurgent’ New York Premiere

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - 'Insurgent' New York Premiere
Octavia Spencer was also at the ‘Insurgent’ New York premiere, held at Ziegfeld Theater on Monday (March 16) in New York City, joining Zoe Kravitz, Ashley Judd and Shailene Woodley.

It will come as no surprise that the actress once again relied on her favoured designer, Tadashi Shoji, for this richly patterned, lacy filigree gown.

Yet I was delighted to see her in this more relaxed, flowing silhouette that had a semi-boho-inspired vibe—even if the skirt puddled a few centimetres too long at the floor.

A Thale Blanc clutch, soft waves, and neutral makeup completed her effortless look.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2015 Oscars

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - 2015 Oscars

Octavia Spencer was back on the red carpet at the 2015 Oscars at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on Sunday (February 22).

There will perhaps be no utters of surprise that the actress wore her favoured designer, Tadashi Shoji, for the evening’s festivities.

After a rare misstep in the designer-star pairing, the duo was back on firm footing with this custom creation in a glorious shade of mint green.

She style the off-the-shoulder, draped and embellished design simply and beautifully with diamond-encrusted earrings, a tonal Judith Leiber clutch and a sleek updo.

If it’s not broke…
