Viola Davis In Akris – ‘Widows’ London Film Festival Premiere

Viola Davis In Akris - 'Widows' London Film Festival Premiere

The BFI London Film Festival had its opening night on Wednesday (October 10), with Viola Davis’ latest film, ‘Widows’ premiering at the event.

This might be controversial, but I’m not crazy about Viola in this Akris red dress.

I adore the colour on her, but the dress itself feels pretty basic, and doesn’t live up to her stature.

I also don’t like random asymmetric line going across her chest.

A matching Tyler Ellis ‘Aimee’ clutch and black pumps completed her look.

    It doesn’t fit along with the other flaws noted. Too bad because the red is dynamite.

    Its bad.

    hell no. The great Viola deserves much much much better than this. The color is great but the dress is terrible.

    It looks like something ordered out of a catalogue and don’t think this hairstyle is the best.

    The color is the only thing I like about this dress since the dress is miss for Viola.

    I also hate that line across her chest, it makes it look like she carrying a cross body bag (which I thought when I first saw these pictures).

      “I also hate that line across her chest, it makes it look like she carrying a cross body bag ”

      That was my first thought too, until I saw the clutch

    A rare miss for Viola. This dress doesn’t suit/flatter her.

      +1 don’t think this would flatter anyone, what an odd design decision to add that line across the dress.

    First time that I hate a Viola Davis look! Horrible and why didn’t she give up her gorgeous curls? It’s a tragic look all around 🙁

      Phew. I thought I was the only one. This really is so so bad in my eyes
