Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards

Octavia Spencer clutches on to her award for ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for her role in ‘The Help’ at the 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards this evening.

The actress went the LBD route wearing a Tadashi Shohi Spring 2012 v-neck black draped jersey dress with a jewel detail at the waist.

She accessorized with a Swarovski black satin and crystal clutch.

The actress proves once again that she knows how to dress for her body type in this figure-flattering dress.

A shorter-hemmed dress is perfect for this more casual awards ceremony.

Chandelier earrings and a tousled up-do add an elegant touch to her look.

Tadashi Shoji has a knack of dressing winners.

Octavia Spencer In David Meister – 2012 Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala

Octavia Spencer attended the 2012 Annual Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala in California on Saturday evening, where she accepted the award for ‘Breakthrough Performance’ for her role in ‘The Help’.

The actress wore a David Meister midnight-blue blouson sequin evening gown.

Made out of jersey, with cut-away sleeves and a column skirt, this dress is figure flattering and, overall, completely stunning on Octavia.

The subtle pattern on the gown’s skirt is a nice variation on the standard draped-and-sequined Hollywood dress.

Perhaps a silver clutch to match her teardrop diamond earrings would have added a nice touch, but A+ otherwise.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2011 Governors Awards Dinner

Octavia Spencer attended the 2011 Governors Awards dinner in LA on Saturday night.

The breakout star of ‘The Help’ wore a Tadashi Shoji Fall 2011 black embroidered lace gown with bateau neckline.

While the unique lace pattern is beautiful and the neckline extremely flattering, the look falls apart in the styling.

The belt could be trimmed and better proportioned to the bustline, as seen on the runway, while the shawl should be ditched entirely.

It may be cliché, but a pop of colour (bangles! lipstick! A clutch!) might have saved this ensemble from looking so funeral procession appropriate.
