‘Fruitvale Station’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

'Fruitvale Station' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

The ‘Fruitvale Station’ premiere took place during Cannes Film Festival this evening following the photocall earlier today.

Octavia Spencer: As expected, the actress wore a Tadashi Shoji custom gown. We’ve seen the actress don many gowns in shade of cream, lavender, black and blue, but never a fiery hue like this red tulle-and-lace draped cape sleeve gown. The colour is so striking and the style so very flattering.

Ahna O’Reilly: The actress selected an ivory fully sequined Elie Saab one-sleeve gown with cut-outs at the waist.

Melonie Diaz: Like Octavia, Melonie also opted for a bold colour wearing an Emilio Pucci sea-blue chiffon gown accented with a black beaded belt and styled with silver jewels. Once again she worked a bold lip colour.

16.05.13 Photocall

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – ‘Fruitvale Station’ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - 'Fruitvale Station' Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Octavia Spencer attended the ‘Fruitvale Station’ photocall this afternoon during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival at the Palais des Festivals in France.

No prizes for guessing that she’s wearing Tadashi Shoji.

Not only because the Asian designer is her go-to guy, but also because her lace frock is distinctive of his style and his Spring 2013 and Fall 2012 collections, which feature several lacy confections.

Metallic gold Robert Clergerie ‘Querrye’ ankle boots completed her look.

I can’t wait to see what Tadashi has created for his muse this evening.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – Tadashi Shoji Beijing Boutique Opening

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - Tadashi Shoji Beijing Store Opening

Octavia Spencer looked radiant on the red carpet at the opening of the Tadashi Shoji Beiing boutique in China this evening.

It’s been an honour to watch the partnership (and no doubt friendship) blossom from the start of her 2012 awards season run to-date.

The designer has created some gorgeous gowns for the beautiful actress, but this custom black, neoprene, cap sleeve gown featuring a pale pink lace overlay detail at the waist and a leather belt is definitely in their hall-of-fame.

As you can see the gown is a custom variation from a look which took to the runway for Tadashi Shoji’s Fall 2013 collection. She styled with a half-up, half-down hairstyle and a black clutch.

At the launch the actress said, “I am so honoured to be in Beijing to celebrate this landmark in Tadashi’s prolific career. His designs are timeless, elegant and as unique as his personality. I am thrilled to call him a friend.”

Her simple, effective, event-appropriate all-black look received a pop of colour via her pretty pink lip colour and matching manicure.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2013 Oscars


Octavia Spencer looked beautiful as usual on the red carpet at the 2013 Oscars held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

The ‘The Help’ actress and Academy Award winner wore an ethereal champagne-colored Tadashi Shoji gown.

A matching champagne clutch and stunning Lorraine Schwartz earrings are the perfect accents for the delicate and body-flattering look.

Octavia left the pops of color to her pink lips and red nails, while her updo is classic and shows off her always smiling face.

Chandra Wilson In Tadashi Shoji – 2013 NAACP Image Awards

Chandra Wilson In Tadashi Shoji - 2013 NAACP Image Awards

Chandra Wilson looked lovely as she took to the red carpet at the 2013 NAACP Image Awards on Friday evening, which was held at The Shrine Auditorium in California.

The ‘Grey Anatomy star turned to Octavia Spencer’s favourite designer for her red carpet look.

Chandra glowed wearing a Tadashi Shoji Spring 2013 metallic ice-blue draped jersey gown with a sheer rhinestone panel at the bust.

This sparkling detail was matched with Benjamin Adams London silver crystal ‘Chicago’ pumps, an Oroton ‘Opera Crystals’ clutch, a gold bracelet and oval drop earrings.

I love this elegant look from head-to-toe, but I would remove the gold bracelet as it doesn’t blend well with the rest of her look.
