Viola Davis has been consistently killing it in 2012, and we aren’t even factoring in the Oscar nomination. That would just be unfair. From plunging hot pink at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards to fiery fitted red at the National Board of Reviews Awards Gala, The Help star deserves all the Best Dressed awards she can fit in her arms, which are also pretty banging.
Viola’s new L.A. Times Magazine cover is, however, definitely our favorite, what with Davis rocking her natural hair and a series of edgy black couture looks from designers Jason Wu, Marchesa and Lady Gaga favorite Thierry Mugler. Check out the rest of the photo shoot, but be warned: it will make you want to melt down all your jewelry and fashion Viola a little gold statuette. Don’t do it though. It’ll make the one we sent her seem way less impressive.
