Who Wore Raoul Better? Viola Davis or Kourtney Kardashian

As Viola Davis is the unofficial brand ambassador for Raoul, she was the first to wear this ‘Penelope’ gown to the 3rd annual Governors Awards dinner in LA back in November.

The Oscar nominee teamed her maxi dress with a gold neckline with a simple cuff and a gold Jimmy Choo clutch.

At Elton John’s annual AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party last month, Kourtney Kardashian showed off her burgeoning baby bump in the same gown with gold-and-diamond Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

I’m not a fan of Kourtney’s yellow gold jewels, so Viola wins for me.

Which Was Your Favourite Viola Davis 2012 Awards Season Look?


Viola Davis had a very colourful awards season.

She started off in bright red and ended in rich green. My favoruite was her maroon Emilio Pucci look.

Looking back I think I preferred her looks for premieres, photocalls and other events to her awards season run.

Viola Davis In Vera Wang – 2012 Oscars

Viola Davis added a pop of colour on the red carpet for the 2012 Oscars, held in LA tonight.

The ‘Best Actress’ nominee wore a vibrant emerald green Vera Wang gown.

Her custom Vera Wang corseted gown with a floral crystal appliqué bustline, cascading ruffles and a pleated accordion skirt was teamed with silver accessories.

Perhaps my favourite part of this entire look is Viola’s choice to rock her natural hair plus the fact that the twins are under control on this occasion.

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.

Viola Davis In Raoul – 2012 Writers Guild Awards

Queen of the bright colours, Viola Davis, went for a muted look at the 2012 Writers Guild Awards, held in LA on Monday night.

Perhaps she couldn’t decide on which neutral to try first, donning a split black and white Raoul Pre-Fall 2012 halter gown which was cinched with a thick, black belt.

I’m on the fence about this dress, although I am thankful that it has a bit more coverage than her NAACP Awards gown.

Like Octavia, Viola has been loyal to the designer by wearing a lot of Raoul dresses during awards season.

Do you like this more straight-laced look for Viola, or is it too Cruella de Vil?
