Did Viola Davis rock the all-natural look well or not? She may have not won the Oscar for best actress, but she definitely won best style for the evening. Furthermore, she caught the eyes of every black women rather they be natural or not! She looked absolutely stunning at the Oscars, this year!
I’m sure many are wondering ‘why now?’ Did Viola Davis choose to do it for the Oscars? Well, according to Essence, when asked if she’d been saving her natural glory for a special event, she said, “No, there hasn’t been any occasion that I felt brave enough to do it.”

What a great feeling is this. No matter if you’re relaxed or natural, black or white, petite or tall, there is nothing like self-love and self-clarity; to know who you are and to be content with what and who you are! What a great accomplishment is this in one’s life! Viola Davis did not only make a statement for herself on Sunday evening at the Oscars, but for every women out there who just want to be herself and not what other people tell her who to be.
Viola Davis….You Rock!
