Prior to the 2021 NAACP Image Awards, Viola Davis made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,’ where she talked about her film ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,’ her role in the upcoming film ‘The Suicide Squad’ and how she feels about playing Michelle Obama in an upcoming series.
I’m going to need to copy everything I said in my last post on Viola and apply it here, because the woman is on a roll at the moment, and I don’t want it to end.
Sticking with bold African prints from African designers, the actress wore a suit from talented designer Lamine Badian Kouyaté’s Xuly.bët Spring 2021 collection.
Lamine captioned this on Instagram, “So… Legendary actress @violadavis is wearing the ‘Ysaora’ suit for @jimmyfallon tonight! We can’t believe our eyes, Viola Davis is an inspiration to all, she embodies the XULY.Bët woman completely. Thank you so much @elizabethstewart1 for making this vision come to life. 💚”
I’m really loving this joyfully maximalist perspective presented with expert tailoring and vivid multi colours.
It’s not often I celebrate white pumps, but the shirt makes them relevant, although I’m now wondering how yellow would’ve looked since I spotted her manicure.
