Octavia Spencer News Archive
Diablo Cody’s directorial debut, Paradise, is bound to stir up some controversy. But who’s to say we’re not in for a beautiful, honest, and HIGHlarious visual adventure?!
Starring Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, and Octavia Spencer, the film revolves around Lamb, an evangelical Christian whose two-thirds of her body were burned in a plane crash. Following her recovery and a crisis of faith, Lamb decides to make her way to Las Vegas and do all the things she’s wanted to try!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!!
Octavia Spencer looked simple and chic Monday night at the Fruitvale Station screening at the Museum of Modern Art.
She completed her look with some simple black heels that were an obvious choice to go with the black floral embroidery on her dress.
We're so glad Tadashi Shoji is Octavia's BFF (that's best FASHION friend, BTW)! His work flatters her form in just the right way every time.

The news of James Gandolfini's unexpected and untimely death shocked the entire world today.
As we told you earlier, the Emmy-winning Sopranos star was vacationing in Rome when he suffered a heart attack that proved fatal.
The supremely gifted actor was only 51 and his premature loss will surely be felt across the industry.
HBO, proud home to The Sopranos for six seasons, issued this statement:
"We're all in shock and feeling immeasurable sadness at the loss of a beloved member of our family. He was special man, a great talent, but more importantly a gentle and loving person who treated everyone no matter their title or position with equal respect. He touched so many of us over the years with his humor, his warmth and his humility. Our hearts go out to his wife and children during this terrible time. He will be deeply missed by all of us."
Many of James' friends, co-stars, and fans also took to Twitter this afternoon to express their grief and offer their condolences to his family.
Here are but a few of the kind words:
Octavia tends to gravitate toward neutral and pastel colored gowns, so it's nice to see her in a color that really POPS.
She completed the look with matching red sandals and left her wavy tresses down.
Are U feelin' it???

The actress wore the flirty number to the Fruitvale Station photocall at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday, and it was the perfect outfit for the French Riviera!
It looks soft and breezy, and works so well with Octavia's strappy gold shoes and tousled waves.
Love it from top to bottom and side to side!
