Fugger: Viola Davis

Oscars Feh Carpet: Viola Davis in Escada


This is a great color, but this is doing her no favors:

I feel like she kind of phoned this in, and I don’t think I’m the only one. On Oscar night, I noticed on Twitter that Escada was retweeting all kinds of things — mostly, you know, “Viola Davis looks major in Escada!” But they also retweeted someone who’d posted a photo of this frock with the succinct review, “EH.” I’m SURE it was an oversight, but I love the idea that even Escada was like, “We’ve all done better, right? Right.”

This pleases the court.

A zig-zag like that has the potential to chop up a body and do it an unkindness, but Viola is wearing it beautifully, with a cool bracelet, great earrings, a deep plum lip, and her innate awesomeness. How apt that “Ender’s Game” anagrams to “dream genes.”

In which Sandra Bullock and Lupita Nyong’o battle it out for best dressed. Start the awards season as you mean to go on, I suppose.

Viola Davis! You are so foxy.

File this color under: WEAR ALL THE TIME.  And continue in good health.

This event was called the Fashion Group International Night of Stars, which implied, to me, more than four. I feel hosed.

Could I love Viola Davis any more?

No. The answer is no. Look how fabulous her skin is. And how amazing she looks in that color. The dress isn’t revolutionary, but the trick is, it doesn’t have to be: The color is great, the cut is flattering, and she is DIVINE, so why fall into the trap of ornate nonsense or avant-garde yada-yada? Sometimes simplicity IS key.
