Viola Davis In Alberta Ferretti – ‘Won’t Back Down’ New York Premiere

Viola Davis joined Maggie Gyllenhaal on the red carpet at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City yesterday for the premiere of their latest movie ‘Won’t Back Down’.

The Oscar-nominated actress wore a delightful teal-blue Alberta Ferretti Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her floor-length look with a pleated detail was styled with Miriam Salat ‘Deco Cascade’ earrings.

With natural afro hair in a honey-coloured hue, she completed her look with smoky eyes and a copper lip colour.

    Slightly too lowcut, but other than that a gorgeous look. The color is amazing on her! Love her 🙂

    I can’t remember, FC, whether in your year-end awards you have one for best use of colour or something like that. If you do, it should really go to Viola. With so many stars sticking to boring black/white/nude, I LOVE her for picking interesting colours, which by the way are great against her beautiful skin.
    This is definitely a possible BDOTW, for me.

    She’s so consistent and this is no exception. I just adore her (even more so) when she wears her natural hair. Beautiful!

    I don’t love it as much as I’ve loved many of her previous looks. But you gotta love her for always wearing dresses with amazing complimentary colors.

  13. Rebecca Z September 25, 2012 at 21:55 #

    Yes–a lovely woman looking lovely. Perfection.

  14. Ade September 25, 2012 at 20:20 #

    She looks terrific. Better than Maggie IMO

    • Amy September 25, 2012 at 21:18 #

      Well that’s not hard considering what Maggie wore.
      Anyway Viola looks fantastic

    Love the color against her skin. It’s gorgeous. Hair and makeup are lovely too. Nice, flattering dress.

    she looks gorgeous, make up is perfection, i want ths dress. It simple yet flattering. I wish the hair color was a little darker so it wouldnt blend so much with the skin color. love it when she goes natural

  17. Yeliz September 25, 2012 at 20:12 #

    She looks great, I love the colour of the dress against her skin tone.

  18. Nat39 September 25, 2012 at 20:11 #

    Delightful is the right word. Loving the colour, the figure-flattering fit, her natural hair, makeup, accessories – all very nice.

    Wow, she looks sensational. The colour of the dress next to her beautiful skin looks stunning. And I love her hair!

  20. Marybeth September 25, 2012 at 20:09 #

    Nice! Great color for her.
    I love the cropped afro and am so glad to see it in a darker color than she wore to the Oscars.

  21. Badaboum September 25, 2012 at 20:09 #

    Stunning, the color is amazing for her! I hope she will keep showing on the red carpet with her natural hair, I think she looks so much better.

  22. MEME September 25, 2012 at 20:06 #
