octavia spencer sensa lawsuit weight loss

If a company promised us $700k and didn't pull through, we'd be livid as well!

This is exactly what's happening with Oscar-winning Octavia Spencer right now, who was courted by Sensa, a weight-loss company that helped her lose 20 pounds in 5 months. She was famous, the stuff was working and she was talking about it. What a match made in heaven!

Except, not. She just filed a lawsuit in L.A. Superior Court alleging "breach-of-contract and fraud."

Octavia Spencer wears a black and white Tadashi Shoji dress to the Fruitvale Station screening in NYC!

Octavia Spencer looked simple and chic Monday night at the Fruitvale Station screening at the Museum of Modern Art.

The Oscar winner's custom black and white Tadashi Shoji lace embroidered dress was on point and flattered her newly slimmed-down figure nicely!

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.
