Viola Davis vera wang.jpg

The biggest talk surrounding Viola Davis' Academy Awards look is that she chose to wear her hair natural, revealing a red crop, and citing her mom as her hair stylist for the night! But that (great) choice shouldn't completely overshadow her fabulous dress - a brilliant pop of colour on the Oscars red carpet.

The actress chose a killer green gown by Vera Wang which definitely makes the most of her assets! The strapless top with jewelled inserts looks fab and shows of toned shoulders and great boobs (you know you're thinking it) but the best detail is at the knee, where a twist of ruffled fabric reveals a gorgeous pleated fishtail hem.

The colour looks amazing on Viola and the matching emerald earrings set it off brilliantly. Overall, this is one of her best red carpet looks and a great choice for a night when she may well be taking home an award for her role in The Help.
