Abigail Spencer Shows Love for Director Friend Duke Johnson at the Critics’ Choice Awards in Tamara Mellon “Frontline” Sandals

Abigail Spencer hasn’t hit a monumental moment in her own career just yet, but she’s still not afraid to point some of her own limited spotlight toward her talented friends.

The actress did just that at the Critics’ Choice Awards, when she decided to walk the red carpet with — and give a shoutout to — her longtime director friend, Duke Johnson.

Abigail wore a gorgeous ruffled dress by J. Mendel, which she accessorized with a clutch from Lee Savage, jewelry from Marina B and the popular “Frontline” heels by Tamara Mellon.

We love the overall feel of Abigail’s look — we think the way she carried herself is stellar. If we were to point out something we quite didn’t like about the look, it was the sports-bra-like part of her dress. We love the halter with the thin straps and the ruffled slits, but we didn’t quite get the band.

Little styling flaw aside, we love that Abigail represented her show “Rectify,” but also gave a shoutout for Duke’s directorial work on “Anomalisa.” Check out her adorable ceremony photo below:

Since her departure from Jimmy Choo, Tamara Mellon hasn’t been doing so bad for herself. She churned out the “Frontline” sandal, which quickly became a favorite on red carpets. You can also check out a similar shoe by Tamara called “Horizon” at Net-A-Porter.
