Tadashi Shoji at New York Fashion Week

Tadashi Shoji, has been dressing women on the red carpet for years.  The Japanese designer's clients include some of the biggest celebrities in Hollywood.  Actress Octavia Spencer wore one of his gowns at the Academy Awards as she won her first Oscar for her role in The Help.  Tyra Banks, BeyoncĂ©, Kate Beckinsale, and Kelly Osbourne have all been seen wearing his dresses.

Shoji opened up Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York last month with a collection that brought the guests through an era of luxury.  The dresses showed an influence of Shanghai in the 1930's.  The colors were in soft shades and the textures included Chantilly lace, chiffon and velvet.  Shoji told IB Times TV that he was inspired by the 1932 film "Shanghai Express" starring Marlene Dietrich.
