Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – ‘Fruitvale Station’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - 'Fruitvale Station' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Octavia Spencer attended the ‘Fruitvale Station’ photocall this afternoon during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals in France.

No prizes for guessing that she’s wearing Tadashi Shoji.

Not only because the Asian designer is her go-to guy, but also because her lace frock is distinctive of his style and his Spring 2013 and Fall 2012 collections, which feature several lacy confections.

Metallic gold Robert Clergerie ‘Querrye’ ankle boots completed her look.

I can’t wait to see what Tadashi has created for his muse this evening.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – Tadashi Shoji Beijing Boutique Opening

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - Tadashi Shoji Beijing Store Opening

Octavia Spencer looked radiant on the red carpet at the opening of the Tadashi Shoji Beiing boutique in China this evening.

It’s been an honour to watch the partnership (and no doubt friendship) blossom from the start of her 2012 awards season run to-date.

The designer has created some gorgeous gowns for the beautiful actress, but this custom black, neoprene, cap sleeve gown featuring a pale pink lace overlay detail at the waist and a leather belt is definitely in their hall-of-fame.

As you can see the gown is a custom variation from a look which took to the runway for Tadashi Shoji’s Fall 2013 collection. She styled with a half-up, half-down hairstyle and a black clutch.

At the launch the actress said, “I am so honoured to be in Beijing to celebrate this landmark in Tadashi’s prolific career. His designs are timeless, elegant and as unique as his personality. I am thrilled to call him a friend.”

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?
