Viola Davis In Escada - Oscars 2014

Viola Davis attended the Oscars 2014, hosted today (March 2) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

One of the evening’s presenter, she was wore a striking emerald Escada gown, calling the green hue her ‘go-to colour’ when interviewed on the red carpet.

With an asymmetrical, structured bodice putting a modern spin on the ball-gown silhouette, the actress added sparkle with gemstone cuffs on each wrist and a glittery, cylindrical Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch.

Retro finger waves, a smoky metallic eye and glossy nude lip contributed glamorous effect.

The jewel-toned hue was undeniably the most compelling part of her ensemble, even if the fabric may have been a bit unforgiving if the light wrinkling is any indication.
