Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – ‘The Shape Of Water’ LA Premiere

Octavia Spencer looked joyful at ‘The Shape Of Water’ LA premiere on Wednesday (November 15).

The actress donned a Tadashi Shoji Spring 2018 dress that was brimming with romantic details. The V-neckline was complemented with the flared sleeves and shoulder cut-outs for a gorgeous face-framing effect.

Irene Neuwirth jewels brought the eye to the neckline and to Octavia’s smile.

The runway version of the frock had a sweet charm courtesy of the stripes and muted colours. The red one retained the feel, but made a bolder statement.

I’m not sure whether it was intentional or not, but the fiery frock also mimicked the one in the film’s poster.

2017 CMA Awards Red Carpet Roundup

The 2017 CMA Awards on Wednesday (November 8) in Nashville, Tennessee were a glorious mix of colour, shine and eye-catching details.

Cam: Opting for back, the singer went for understated elegance in Tadashi Shoji. The rich velvet fabric was contrasted with sultry lace panels and cream trim. A different neckline might have worked more in her favor as this could read a bit too maturely for some.

Kellie Pickler: The singer and television personality struck a pose in an exuberant Pamella Roland Fall 2017 dress. Festooned with black and gold-green feathers, it presented a darker mood, but still had a flirty finish.

Kimberly Schlapman: The ‘Little Big Town’ singer’s signature blonde curls were juxtaposed with a sleek navy column dress. The mirrored clutch and belt enlivened the gown, but the gold choker didn’t have as much impact.

27th Annual EMA Awards

The 27th Annual EMA Awards on Saturday (September 23), honoring film and television productions and individuals that further public awareness of environmental issues, had its fair share of flora on the red carpet.

Nikki Reed: The new mom chose a blue-green Tadashi Shoji Pre-Fall 2017 gown. Banding on the bodice brought some allure to the bohemian maxi dress decorated with red and white flowers.

Natalie Portman: The Christian Dior ambassador resisted florals, opting for a creamy frock from the fashion house. The simplicity of the above-the-knee dress with delicate sandals felt refreshing.

Jordana Brewster: Donning a white Paule Ka Pre-Fall 2017 dress with pink and red blooms, the actress incorporated the night’s white and flowers trends. Hueb ruby earrings, fuchsia lipstick and coordinating sandals enhanced the floral pattern on the dress, while the black nails and clutch added some toughness.

Post Emmys Parties

Following the big show, came the Emmy’s after parties hosted by HBO and FOX which saw a few celebrities change into second looks.

Julianne Hough: When it comes to after-parties, the idea is to switch into something more comfortable to get your groove on without the fear of someone stepping on the train you’ve been carrying around during the awards ceremony, but Julianne has different idea. She used the occasion to dress up again, wearing a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2018 gown with a train longer than her Marchesa gown. I love the ethereal nature of the gown, but I really dislike the clutch here and I feel like she’s a tad overdressed for the occasion.

Sarah Hyland: When I look at Sarah in this Vatanika Spring 2018 LBD, I’m like, “yes, she gets it. She came to party”.

2017 Creative Arts Emmy Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There were a bevy of beauties on the 2017 Creative Arts Emmy Awards red carpet on Sunday (September 10), joining Alexis Bedel and Angela Bassett.

Kathryn Hahn: The actress smoldered in vintage Valentino from Shrimpton Couture. Crafted out of the designer’s signature shade and finished with ruffled sleeves, this ensemble shows that the comedienne can be a serious fashion player.

Laverne Cox: Never one to shy away from a sexy dress, she disregarded the legs, boobs and bum police with this sultry MikaelD gown. I salute Laverne for managing to find the perfect pose to show off all of the dress’s assets, as well as her own. Further recognition goes for elegantly styling the dress with a gold Edie Parker clutch, dark lipstick and soft updo.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – ‘The Shape Of Water’ Toronto Film Festival Promo

It’s been a busy Toronto Film Festival for Octavia Spencer, but one thing that’s been consistent is her designer: Tadashi Shoji.

Like Venice Film Festival, the New York based designer hooked his favourite girl up in a selection of gorgeous pieces.

IMDb Studio: As Octavia tends to opt for darker hues, this sunny Tadashi Shoji top really brightened my day. I would love her to branch out and try more colours in the future as well as those fun animal print shoes.  The look was styled with a L’Dezen sliced diamond ring.

Fox Searchlight TIFF Party: Quickly reverting back to those deep dark hues she loves, this floral dress felt so fresh and vibrant. I didn’t get that same feeling from the navy dress she wore during Venice. She styled this look with deep blue velvet Jimmy Choo ‘Holly’ platforms which evoked the unbridled glamour of the ’70s.

‘The Shape Of Water’ Premiere: Her final look was beautiful. For Toronto Film Festival, cocktail dresses work within the more relaxed environment. So you’ll get no complaints from this time around about he off-the-shoulder peplum number.   I love how this look benefits from the sleek styling which included Steve Madden ‘Slithur’ shoes which I also own in yellow…naturally.
