Oscar winner Octavia Spencer joined actor Michael B. Jordan at the premiere of their new film, "Fruitvale Station." See the premiere pics and film trailer inside and see what model Jourdan Dunn reveals about being a single mom and how her mother helps with her son.
Oscar winner Octavia Spencer posed for the paparazzi at the New York premiere of her latest movie, Fruitvale Station, last night. Octavia chose an ivory Tadashi Shoji-designed dress (her fave designer) for the red carpet at the Museum of Modern Art.
Michael B. Jordan co-stars with Octavia in the film, which is based on the true story of Oscar Grant, a young man killed early on New Year's Day by an Oakland, California transit officer in 2009. Michael, who also appeared on HBO's The Wire and Red Tails, has been receiving a good deal of buzz for his portrayal. And he's def a cutie.
The movie was directed by Ryan Coogler, who won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award for U.S. dramatic film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It's his first feature film.
Oscar-winner Cuba Gooding Jr. was among the celebs spotted supporting the cast and congratulating Ryan on his brilliant debut.

And across the pond......
During a recent interview with the UK's Daily Mail, supermodel Jourdan Dunn opened up about her most important job yet....being a mom. And we love hearing stories of how successful YBF chicks stay on top of their game despite unplanned occurences in life.
The 22-year-old international beauty gushed to the magazine about raising her adorbale son Riley (shown above with her model besties Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevinge) and the large role her own mother plays in his upbringing. 'I've got so much going on at the moment and have been going back and forth between London and New York, so my mum looks after Riley when I'm away. It works well.'
Having her mom help out with Riley also allows Jourdan to branch into other areas outside of modeling, like hosting her online cooking segments. On the popular web series, she teaches famous folks like Wale how to cook her favorite dishes.
