    She’s my queen so I’ll excuse this! She’s has more hits than misses and with that smile plus the amazing body she somehow still pulls it off!

    • Yup, Me says:

      I agree. The color is gorgeous with her skin tone and it looks like she has one magnificent bionic arm. I’m going with that storyline and nothing will change my mind.

  2. Mia4s says:

    What a shame; that dress would be stunning on her if it was totally sleeveless.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      I agree it would look much better if both sides were sleeveless. But the fabric looks cheap and it’s all stretched beside the arm. Viola deserves better!

  3. minx says:

    She looks gorgeous and that color is a wow, but the fit by her arm…yeesh.

  4. Lala11_7 says:

    They WRONG for that one long arm on that dress…..seriously, with THAT NECK LINE? WHAT WERE THE DESIGNERS THINKING?!?! Love the color…and of course…VIOLA!!!!!!! Can not WAIT for this movie…cause I am a Steve McQueen/Viola…STAN!

  5. DragonWise says:

    I love her so hard, but besides the awful dress, I need to slap her hair person for that shake’n'go monstrosity on her head! Viola can werk a wig, but this one is terrible!

    • JustSayin' says:

      Doesn’t look like a wig to me.
      It looks like her natural hair straightened.

      And the dress looks lovely. Viola looks great in jewel tones. I think she’s a deep winter.

    • ValiantlyVarnished says:

      Not a wig. If you look at the ends you can see how the hair has expanded. Like natural hair gbag is straightened and begins to frizz in humidity. This is her natural hair blown out straight and flat ironed

    • ByTheSea says:

      That’s a wig; you can see the edges of the lacefront. And it’s a bad one. Viola is still a goddess, though.

  6. Milla says:

    But her face looks great, so… And she seems happy.

    And we all knew Obama was right. But what can you do that now? Wait.

    • jwoolman says:

      Well, Obama did say Kanye was a TALENTED jackass… And even Kanye admitted in his lucid moments that it was a jackass move, getting drunk and running up on the stage to tell a 19 year old that her award should have gone to Beyoncé. Really. Who does that?

  7. ocjulia says:

    That shade of red looks AMAZING on her. She’s so beautiful.

  8. CocoNoir says:

    Okay Viola Davis is a queen so she slays that dress with her body. I do not like that shocking red colour on her but her hair is fab.

  9. shy vi says:

    She looks beautiful to me and makes me want to get my arms that toned!

  10. Veronica S. says:

    That dress is clearly not designed for a woman with breasts. It’s the stretching in the torso that makes it unflattering, else it could work.

    • TandemBikeEscapee says:

      I had the same reaction, it’s the right idea for her strong body in general, but how could it accommodate breasts?

  11. Nev says:

    HTGAWM best show on tv!!!!

    • JadedBrit says:

      Do you remember that bit in, I think, the first episode when she gets home and, sitting alone in front of her mirror, takes off her wig and with it her vainglorious arrogance, hubris, diamond hardness? The way that she channels such vulnerability, such sadness just by microscopic changes of expression is truly staggering. I’d say she’s the best actress of her generation.

  12. Mina says:

    I don’t like the dress, but can we appreciate for a moment what wonderful shoulders and arms Viola Davis has?

  13. Mrs. Peel says:

    I’ve seen way worse dresses – the colour is lovely on her, and it looks quite nice. Am I blind?

    • TandemBikeEscapee says:

      It’s too short in the armpits, also width is too short across the chest. It’s likely the shaped bra increased the cup size. As an old retail gal, I’m shocked that more stylists don’t wear a cloth measuring tape 24/7 to insure proper fit. Most stylists vie for designer connections and receive a few dresses per event, depending on the marketability of the actor. It’s often fast process and the lesser of a few must be chosen quickly.

  14. JadedBrit says:

    She looks amazing; the red compliments the extraordinary lustre of her perfect, glowing skin. Total girl crush on such an astoundingly good actress.

  15. The colour is gorgeous. I would give her a nine outta ten

  16. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    The sleeve would work with an asymmetrical neckline but like this is just looks like the other sleeve got caught in the car door and tore off, but she didn’t have time to fix it.
