Viola Davis killed the red-carpet fashion scene at home for the Golden Globes with an impactful meaning behind it.
According to her stylist, Elizabeth Stewart said that the actress wanted a dress that spoke to her specifically as a Black woman. Davis and Stewart collaborated with the founder of the Los Angeles-based brand Lavie by CK, Claude Kameni.
The dress complemented every curve of the influential Academy Award winner. It featured a soft silk-cotton African print from a fabric made in Kameni’s home country of Cameroon, where the love of fashion began for the brilliant designer.
“It was such a pleasure making this gown for @violadavis. Finding out she would wear it to the @goldenglobes awards was the icing on the cake. She definitely violated the gown. We wanted to create a dress that showcased Viola in a different light but still make it her own sense of style. We nailed it,” she wrote.
The essentials to go along with the significant gown included Stuart Weitzman shoes, Pomellato jewelry, a Gabo Guzzo clutch, and a gorgeous makeup creation by Jamika Wilson and Autumn Moultrie in collaboration.
