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.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2012 Writers Guild Awards

On Sunday night Octavia Spencer attended the 2012 Writers Guild Awards in LA.

The actress continued her fashionable awards tour in a pink floral Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 embroidered silk sheath, covered with a layer of gathered beige chiffon.

We’ve seen Octavia stay faithful to Tadashi Shoji for the majority of the awards circuit, and for good reason.

At this point, it will be a huge shock if she chooses any other designer for this weekend’s Oscars.

Pewter Stuart Weitzman heels, Neil Lane jewels and a Judith Leiber bag add the finishing touch.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2012 NAACP Image Awards

Octavia Spencer attended the 2012 NAACP Image Awards, held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA last night.

She took home the ‘Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture’ award for her role in ‘The Help’ to add to her growing collection.

The actress wore yet another gown from her go-to designer, Tadashi Shoji.

Her custom sky blue silk jersey gown featured a ruched bodice, draped sleeve plus it was accented with a jewel detail at the waistline.

I love the graduation from dark to light blue, and the fact that she’s wearing such a vibrant colour at this event as she’s tended to wear dark colours this awards season.

Silver peep-toes and aqua stone diamond encrusted tear-drop earrings completed her look.
