Octavia Spencer looked beautiful as usual on the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘The Help’ actress and Academy Award winner wore an ethereal champagne-colored Tadashi Shoji gown.

A matching champagne clutch and stunning Lorraine Schwartz earrings are the perfect accents for the delicate and body-flattering look.

Octavia left the pops of color to her pink lips and red nails, while her updo is classic and shows off her always smiling face.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Octavia Spencer  In Tadashi Shoji - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Whoever coined the phrase, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, was clearly referring to Octavia Spencer and Tadashi Shoji.

Octavia took to the red carpet at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California this evening for the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards wearing a custom-made dress by her go-to designer.

Her navy tulle draped cap-sleeve dress, inspired by a gown from the designers’ look book, was enriched with paillette lace appliqué across the sleeve and bodice.

Navy satin accessories, tear drop Irene Neuwirth earrings and a half-up-half-down hairstyle completed her look.

Is this still a winning combination for you, or would you like to see Octavia switch things up a bit?

Elle’s Women In Hollywood Celebration Red Carpet Round Up

There were so many more celebs who attended Elle’s Women In Hollywood Celebration in LA last night. Here is a quick look at what they wore.

Uma Thurman: The actress wore a head-to-toe Calvin Klein Spring 2013 all-black look with slicked-back hair and David Yurman jewels.

Kiernan Shipka: The adorable teen actress wore a Moschino ivory-and-black dress with a pleated striped skirt, black collar and peplum detail. An Olympia Le-Tan book clutch and black Jimmy Choo ‘Mara’ kitten heels accessorized her look.

Jayma Mays: The ‘Glee’ actress brightened up the red carpet wearing an electric-blue Alexandra Vidal peplum dress with tri-colour Brian Atwood sandals with matching Rebecca Minkoff lizard embossed ‘Fling’ minaudiere and David Yurman jewels.

Naya Rivera: The ‘Glee’ actress is one of those hit-and-miss stars, but she scored a hit wearing this lovely pale yellow Moschino dress. The sleeveless fitted dress with a tulip-shaped skirt was styled with burgundy Tory Burch peep-toes and a matching Jimmy Choo clutch. Tumbling curls, diamond earrings and a pink lip shade finished Naya’s look.

amfAR’s Inspiration Gala

Here are the rest of the looks from yesterday evening’s amfAR’s Inspiration Gala, held at Milk Studios in California.

Kristin Davis: You pretty much know what you’re going to get from a Kristin Davis look: a pretty fit-and-flare dress. It’s a formula which has worked so well for her in the past and this vintage Lanvin midnight-blue dress with an ivory slash across the bodice proves that the formula still works. Navy Christian Louboutin sandals and a silver clutch completed her look.

Octavia Spencer: Award season may be over, but Octavia’s love for Tadashi Shoji continues. The Oscar-winning actress looked stunning wearing a custom black-and-nude lace-embroidered dress with an on-trend peplum detail. Black accessories and silver jewels completed her look.

Rumer Willis: The actress donned a cute Alice + Olivia dress with a nude bodice decorated with black sequins and a poufy A-line skirt. Black glitter YSL Tribute sandals and a silver clutch with crystal embellishments accessorized her look. I wish Rumer had opted for softer makeup for this look. The heavy kohl-rimmed eyes and bright red lips don’t work for me with this dainty look.

Which Was Your Favourite Octavia Spencer 2012 Awards Season Look?

Octavia Spencer took a leaf out of Mo’Nique’s book and turned to the one designer who would know how to flatter her curves: Tadashi Shoji.

Left in the wrong hands this could’ve been a run of black dresses and tent like shapes, but Tadashi celebrated Octavia’s womanly figure with waist-defining, flattering red carpet looks which are worthy of praise.

The man with the midas touch dressed her for the Critic’ Choice Awards and it was uphill from there.

My personal favourite was her SAG Awards look, followed by the colourful NAACP Image Awards look.

Which look did you love?

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2012 Oscars

Octavia Spencer stayed faithful to her beloved Tadashi Shoji at the 2012 Oscars held in Hollywood this evening.

The ‘Best Supporting Actress’ nominee has worn the designer on almost every red carpet this season, so it’s great to see her don the designer for her big night.

Her custom hand-beaded, ivory silk/tulle draped cap sleeve gown perfectly skims Octavia’s figure.

A Judith Leiber clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewels complete the nominee’s look.
