Is it just us, or is it fabulous in here?!

Octavia Spencer took the style factor up a notch on Thursday at the Critics’ Choice Awards.

The award-winning actress looked her usual flawless self in a ruched, navy Tadashi Shoji dress with lace and sequin accents that hugged her curves perfectly.

Equally as perfect were Octavia's bangs and beautiful makeup.

There’s nothing like starting awards season off with a bang, but she has definitely set the bar high for herself.

It's official.

Octavia Spencer no longer holds the record for "Most Amount of Spanx" worn in one night.

The Help actress has been dethroned by the one and only Adele who wore four, count 'em FOUR, pairs of the body smoothing shapewear to the Grammys this year.

The six-time Grammy winner revealed to Matt Lauer:

"I had three or four pairs of Spanx on that night but I loved it. I actually had another dress made and I ended up passed out in it. It had a corset and I was like, 'I can't wear that,' so I ended up wearing this instead."

And that's why we love you, gurl! Keepin' it real!

Great news!!!

Brides-to-be who loved Octavia Spencer's lavender Golden Globes gown will soon be able to say "I do" wearing a version of the red carpet beauty!!

Tadashi Shoji, the designer who created the custom-made dress worn by The Help star, says he was inspired to add the piece dubbed the Octavia to his new bridal collection after receiving praise for the original.

He says:

“I decided to make the ‘Octavia’ gown in ivory for our new bridal collection after the positive response. I love the way the soft draping envelops the figure while the jewel embellishment adds sparkle for a bride’s big day.”

And so do we!!!

It was definitely one of favorite dresses worn during awards season!

Brides who have their eyes set on Octavia should plan on waiting, because the dress won't be available until spring of 2013.

Sadsies!
