2021 has started off positively for Viola Davis, as it has been said that she’s a sure bet for a lead actress Oscar nomination for her performance in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,’ which is currently available on Netflix.
The film is also being tipped for a BAFTA, so the actress got dressed up for her Q&A with the British Academy yesterday (January 12), where she talked about how she wanted to physically embody the late blues singer, but she knew she wouldn’t be able to reach Ma’s exact weight, given that the singer weighed nearly 300 pounds, but she did manage to get close to 200.
Viola was looking as striking as ever wearing a Stella McCartney Fall 2020 dress.
She was a vision of bold femininity with this contrast-trim maroon dress which is designed with draped detailing for a cool, yet elegant look.
The only downside is that it was a little snug up top. A problem my itty bitties have never had to deal with.
Going up a size wouldn’t have been a great idea, as she would’ve been swimming in fabric, so perhaps a minimizer bra would’ve smoothed out the issue.
