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?

Viola Davis In Hervé L. Leroux – 2012 NAACP Image Awards

The twins came out to play with Viola Davis on the red carpet at the 2012 NAACP Image Awards, held at The Shrine Auditorium in LA last night, and I’m not referring to fellow attendees Tia and Tamara Mowry.

The actress, who has been embracing colour through-out awards season, donned a Hervé L. Leroux orange gown.

Whilst I adore the colour there’s a little too much boobage for my liking, which I find totally distracting.

A Judith Leiber ‘Russian Sky’ minaudiere and Bochic earrings completed her look.

Viola Davis In Valentino – 2012 BAFTA Awards

Viola Davis opted for her favourite colour on the red carpet at the 2012 BAFTA Awards in London tonight: pink.

She looked beautiful wearing a custom Valentino one-shoulder gown which gathers at the hip and has a daring thigh-high split.

Via the split we can see her Jimmy Choo sandals which she has worn a few times during awards season.

I’m not crazy about her hair on this occasion, but she does look stunning nonetheless.

Diamond-drop earrings and a matching bracelet completed her look.

Viola Davis For LA Times Magazine February 2012

Viola Davis has upped the style stakes during awards season and has consistently appeared on the Best Dressed List, so I’m happy to see her in a high-fashion magazine shoot.

For the LA Times she reveals just how strikingly beautiful she is with natural hair that really highlights her features.

The 46-year-old channels her inner supermodel on the cover in a fitted Marchesa dress with lace sleeves and organza flower detailing.

I don’t know about you, but she looks 20 years younger.

The rest of the editorial sees her wearing a sculptural Jason Wu dress, a Thierry Mugler lace and velvet trim suit and a Costume National fur poncho.

On her slow rise to fame: “You can be in the business for 23 years, which I have been, and suddenly something happens that wakes people up. For me, that was being in a movie (Doubt) with Meryl Streep, Amy Adams and Philip Seymour Hoffman. It makes people realize you’re there. Otherwise you’re that black girl who had a guest or costar role in a TV show here or there.”Read More…
