Viola Davis In Victoria Beckham – 5th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Viola Davis wore her hair au natural for the 5th Annual ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon in Beverly Hills yesterday.

The actress wore a simple pale pink Victoria Beckham dress.

Her v-neck dress with three-quarter length sleeves was paired with black Salvatore Ferragamo pumps and a Judith Leiber clutch.

Love this colour on Viola, but I wish her accessories were more complementary.

It is nice to see the Oscar-nominated star sans wig.

    Love everything about the look sans the shoes and make-up. She’s gorgeous, she doesn’t need that much.

    I did’t even know she wore a wig, love her natural hair. The colour is amazing

      i totally agree! i wish she wore different shoes! and i also didn’t know she wore a wig but that does explain how her haircut changed every outing!

    • mm February 24, 2012 at 17:41 #

      I agree and I love her hairstylist!

  2. bm February 24, 2012 at 14:09 #

    Viola doesn’t sell this dress to me.

  3. AW February 24, 2012 at 14:09 #

    WOW! FC I would typically agree about the accessories but in this case i’m biased, her face and hair are the best accessories she could have!

    I love the simplicity of this dress and the color is a great shade of pink, not too sweet.

    • Snowlion February 25, 2012 at 01:15 #

      Agree…she looks so fresh!

  4. Jerusa February 24, 2012 at 14:13 #

    Yesss! I like this hair style, looks so much better. Those shoes killed the look!

  5. ahot February 24, 2012 at 14:13 #

    Great! She really has a bangin´ body

  6. Naomi February 24, 2012 at 14:26 #

    I love the way she looks without her wig, she should do it more often.
    However – She has SO much make-up on and it makes her face seem so heavy and unflattering.

  7. love February 24, 2012 at 14:40 #

    I hate the makeup the lashes are so heavy and the foundation and color of the makeup seems very fashion fair cosmetics counter :/ the dress is cute and simple though

    • Kennedy February 25, 2012 at 20:07 #

      I agree. The foundation is caked on and it’s really noticeable in contrast to the color of her neck. She doesn’t need that much makeup- she has gorgeous skin.

      I’m really happy she’s not wearing a wig. Her hair looks lovely and suits her much better.

  8. Jar February 24, 2012 at 14:44 #

    Wow, she is a beautiful woman. Despite the accessories I would still nominate this for BDOTW because she looks so good here.

    • Tiffany Nicole February 24, 2012 at 20:20 #

      Second that motion. This is a strikingly beautiful woman. What’s more it’s really that she is lit from within!

      • Michelle February 24, 2012 at 22:38 #

        That’s a great way to put it, that “she’s lit from within.” Her confidence is always her best accessory .

  9. Linda February 24, 2012 at 14:45 #

    I agree about the accessories, especially the shoes, but I do love her hair like this. Modern and chic.

  10. dee February 24, 2012 at 15:01 #

    I don’t mind the shoes. The makeup could be lighter in application but she looks great nonetheless.

  11. The Dame February 24, 2012 at 15:01 #

    Wow! Love her natural look! I wish more black women would wear their natural hair, I think its so beautiful.

  12. Jorge February 24, 2012 at 15:11 #

    I love that hair!!!

    Love the hair and the dress on Viola. I don’t care for the accessories and I think the makeup is unflattering.

    Don’t care for the outfit or make up but her hair looks great!
    Really hope she goes natural for the Oscars, it will be so refreshing but I’m sure she’ll look great whatever she wears.

  16. Lalitha February 24, 2012 at 15:51 #

    She looks fab!! Love the dress and she is so pretty!

  17. Rory February 24, 2012 at 16:12 #


  18. Ancika February 24, 2012 at 16:16 #

    It comes as a shock to me that people even wear wigs. why??? i like this look of viola’s, it’s refreshing.

  19. MEME February 24, 2012 at 16:50 #

    I wish she would wear her natural hair more often… she looks great….

  20. robbie February 24, 2012 at 16:56 #

    loved it til i saw the shoes, a nice strappy sandal or even an open toe pump would have been nice (preferably not black) other than that gorgeous, shocked that she wore a wig it.

  21. Anna February 24, 2012 at 18:39 #

    Viola should never wear wigs. She looks 20 years younger with natural hair.

    • Jennifer H-K February 25, 2012 at 00:15 #


  22. CreoleLady February 24, 2012 at 18:39 #

    Paraphrasing Aretha, feeling like a natural woman. You GO Viola.

  23. EmmaWoodhouse February 24, 2012 at 19:06 #

    The dress is nice, but the shoes bring it down. She looks lovely and natural, though, sans wig! :)

  24. karen February 24, 2012 at 19:11 #

    I think she looks great. What a perfect dress for a luncheon. I remember seeing Jessica Beil in this white dress. Great look for Viola. Simple and stunning.

  25. feliciab February 24, 2012 at 19:55 #

    She’s stunning and, in my opinion, has been killing it on the red carpet this season. But, the shoes…oh, the shoes.

  26. justme February 24, 2012 at 20:36 #

    If she rocks the natural hair at the Oscars, I will love her forever and build a shrine in her honour (I’m already half-way through doing one tbh lol).
    I can live with the shoes but the make-up is no bueno.

    • Fashion Critic February 24, 2012 at 21:49 #


      I was hoping her coming out would be at the oscars

  27. gurlygurl February 24, 2012 at 20:40 #

    She is stunning!! I adore her with her natural hair. A few small flaws with this look – wrong shoes and make up needs tweaking but overall she looks wonderful. Love the dress :)

  28. molly February 24, 2012 at 22:49 #

    She looks like a model with her hair! I love the color of the dress, but the accessories are pretty boring.

  29. Shaina February 25, 2012 at 00:02 #

    This color is fantastic on her! LOVE the contrast with her skin. And I’ll never be mad at a girl for going natural, her hair looks beautiful.

  30. hally February 25, 2012 at 05:07 #

    she looks awesome!!!! love the hair, she can rock it, and she should seriously consider this look for the oscars. she could have better makeup, though.

  31. Taylor February 25, 2012 at 09:27 #

    Loving everything but the shoes.

  32. Sarah February 25, 2012 at 10:48 #

    OMG I almost feel like she reads FC’s posts and our comments. Weren’t there some comments about her rocking out the natural hair this week? And here we are.

    Viola, you look STUNNING. But please do wear vibrant gorgeous colors as well!

  33. CoutureRani February 25, 2012 at 13:36 #

    i think she looks really great. but pop colors make her look really awesome.

  34. Tom Kolovos February 26, 2012 at 01:22 #

    Her stylist hates her. No other explanation for this.

  35. Jess2 February 26, 2012 at 07:51 #

    Change the shoes and this look is perfection! I love her without the wig, I think she must be reading our comments :) She is stunning

  36. bianca March 5, 2012 at 23:16 #

    What’s up with that right eye-lid?it looks like it has a life of its own:)other than the make and shoes, i really love the simplicity of this look

  37. mememe March 28, 2012 at 16:58 #

    Really beautiful.
