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.

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.

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 In Tadashi Shoji – 2013 Oscars


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.
