Janelle Monae In Tadashi Shoji – 2014 Met Gala

Janelle Monae In Tadashi Shoji - 2014 Met Gala

If you were expecting Janelle Monae to stick to her favoured black and white at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 5) in New York City, you may have been in for a small surprise.

The musician did wear a white blouse and black trousers, but she also added a dramatic red and black crewel-embroidered Tadashi Shoji Fall 2014 tulle cape.

Adding the cape was just what was required to shake up her look and add a touch of drama to it in order to align the look with the theme of the night.

Jimmy Choo ‘Damek’ sandals, Kwiat jewels, and a chic braided updo completed her look.

June Squibb In Tadashi Shoji – Oscars 2014

JuneSquibbInTadashiShojiOscars2014

June Squibb was in great spirits at the 2014 Oscars at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre tonight (March 2).

The ‘Nebraska’ actress, nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role, wore a custom, emerald green, beaded dress by Tadashi Shoji and clutch by Swarovski.

I would have much preferred to see her in a proper gown instead of a jacket/gown combo as nominee for the most prestigious prize in the American film industry.

And, while the colour is absolutely gorgeous, the matching bag AND earring is a whole lot of it.

Nitpicking aside, June has never claimed to be a fashion plate and looks incredible for being 84-years-old. Most importantly she’s having a great time.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Octavia Spencer attended the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California on Saturday (March 1).

Relying on her favoured tried-and-true designer Tadashi Shoji, the actress wore a black-and-nude lace cocktail frock from the Spring 2014 collection.

Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get behind this look like I can with her other sleekly sophisticated Shoji statements.

Although I would have liked to see her in a more vibrant, sunny colour for this event, the sassy dress was not really the problem here, as it was a victim of its styling.

The black Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch was fine, but I wanted to rip off the black scarf that basically covered the entire ensemble whilst exchanging the ankle-strap platform sandals by Prada for a more streamlined pair.

Aisha Tyler took to the red carpet before her hosting duties of the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica.

She looked lovely wearing a black-and-nude long-sleeve beaded Tadashi Shoji Fall 2013 gown style with rose-gold drop earrings, a black clutch, and a matte red lip colour.

This charming gown is a very flattering look for Aisha, with the pop of colour elevating the look.
