Oscars 2013: Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji

Posted on February 25, 2013

We wanted so badly to like this:

 

Octavia Spencer attends the 2013 Academy Awards in a Tadashi Shoji dress paired with Prada shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, and an Edie Parker clutch.

It’s a creamy confection of a dress, and the color looks great on her, but that’s about as far as we can go with the compliments. The big hair and all that volume at the neckline combine to make her look quite a bit older than she is. Looser, less “set” hair and a more standard neckline would’ve gone a long way. Even so, we’re not crazy about the way the skirt attaches; that line cutting right across her middle. Tadashi Shoji usually does really well by her, but this time, it’s just not working for us.
