As if a perfectly constructed look for the SAG Awards wasn’t enough to accent her outstanding acting skills and tear-jerking acceptance speech, Viola Davis has blown us away once again.
Photos from “The Help” actress’ latest photo shoot with LA Times Magazine are nothing short of breathtaking.
Viola goes for a close-cropped natural look with her hair and is styled in high-fashion close-fitting black clothing.
From the concept to the styling and the hair and makeup this is the recipe for a perfect photo shoot.
Viola is seriously giving supermodels a run for their money! Can we see a Vogue cover in her near future?
Here are some highlights from the article that corresponds with these amazing photos:
On liking characters that are underrated, slow burners: “Human life is about a culmination of moments, and 99 percent of those are quiet but powerful. I am always interested and intrigued with watching that.”
On nurturing her craft from a young age: “Even back when I was 11, I knew that Isabel Sanford from The Jeffersons came from the stage. I never watched the Oscars, but I watched the Tonys every year. I wanted to be onstage. I wanted to be like Colleen Dewhurst or Jane Alexander—one of those great ladies of the theater, doing Ibsen and Shakespeare.”
On the need for young people to be mentored to aspire to something fulfilling: “I am doing this out of necessity. If I am not the instrument of change, I can meander through this business and be the black woman who always has two or three scenes but with fabulous actors around me.”
WOW! It is about time a true artist is celebrated. We can’t wait to see Viola clean house at the Oscars.
