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.

Daisy Fuentes In Tadashi Shoji – 2013 American Music Awards

2013AMA_daisyfuentes

Daisy Fuentes was dripping in sophistication, as she took to the red carpet at the 2013 American Music Awards, held Sunday night at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

The statuesque Latina posed in a Tadashi Shoji halter gown that featured a white lace applique bodice with a sheer nude illusion back that transitioned into a long black, fit-and-flare skirt.

A monochromatic clutch, along with pretty sideswept waves and a cherry-red pout, were a classic finish.

Tadashi Shoji always does right by one of his biggest fans, actress Octavia Spencer. And Daisy was safely elegant here, but was it too formal without enough fire?

Governors Awards 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

Governors Awards 2013 Red Carpet Roundup

Joining Lupita Nyong’o and Angelina Jolie on the red carpet, these stars also brought their own brand of glamour to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards, held at the Grand Ballroom of the Hollywood and Highland Center in LA on Saturday evening.

Jennifer Garner: The actress chose a black, multi-strap Dolce & Gabbana frock, which she styled with Neil Lane jewels, a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, and black Christian Louboutin peep-toe pumps. Natural makeup and swept-back hair complemented her more casual approach to cocktail dressing.

Octavia Spencer: In true Octavia fashion, the star wore her beloved Tadashi Shoji, selecting a red satin dress detailed with black lace at the shoulders and neckline and a sweet black bow belt at the waist. She accessorized with a medley of simple black accessories — a wrap, Rauwolf clutch, and heels, to be exact — and partnered the look with soft waves.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus: The ‘Veep’ star stepped out in a sleeveless, floor-length David Meister gown with a subtle front slit and metallic-covered keyhole. Sleek black Casadei sandals, a black Roger Vivier clutch, and shiny, straight locks completed the look.
