It’s Awards season and yes, we are totally excited to see how that trusty Black Girl Magic is going to sprinkle its way into the upcoming 89th Annual Academy Awards.
So far it’s been a year of many firsts for black female celebrities in the United States, with golden girl Tracee Ellis Ross winning a Golden Globe for Best Actress in TV comedy sitcom Black-ish, and more recently the thrilling news that Viola Davis is the first Black actress in history to receive 3 Oscar nominations. We tip our hats to you Ms Davis.
In honour of the amazingly talented woman that she is, we’ve compiled a little style list showcasing her previous Academy Award looks.
2009 Nominee for Best Supporting Actress - Doubt
Ms Davis is doing the most with this entire outfit right here. Her soft, chestnut hued curls with a side swept bangs simply flatters her heart shaped face. The dress, the hair, the accessories, it all just works!
2012 Nominee for Best Actress - The Help
We’re absolutely in love with this look! Not only do we love the fact that she went au-naturel showing off her teeny weeny afro (TWA) in all its 4c glory, we love the light brown/honey blonde hair colour allowing her true beauty to shine through. A true Queen!
2017 Golden Globes Award Winner for Best Supporting Actress - Fences
Viola is simply radiant in her one-shoulder canary yellow Michael Kors evening dress and we’re pretty sure she had some heads turning the night she walked up the red carpet at the Golden Globes. She totally killed the look coupling it with a classy side-part shoulder length bob, a picture of beauty. Let’s of course not forget the glowing award she won, it even matches her dress!
Viola truly is an inspirational woman, and with 167 nominations and 79 awards already in the bag, we’re really rooting for Viola on this Oscar award.
