Viola Davis attended the awards with Julius Tennon. The two-time Oscar nominee, and now NAACP Best Actress truly has a knack for picking lovely colors that work beautifully on her. It was no different on this occasion. Just Jared spotted the Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close star in an orange Herve L. Leroux gown, Jimmy Choo heels, a Judith Lieber clutch, and stunning earrings. Viola’s dress fit her perfectly… from the waist down. Sadly, her revealing halter dress’ bodice seemed almost painfully snug.
The NAACP Image Awards wasn’t the first event this awards season where Viola Davis wore Herve L. Leroux. While this bright color was exceptional, Viola had better luck with Herve L. Leroux at the Producers Guild Awards.
Also going for orange, but in a softer shade, was the voice of The Cleveland Show’s Donna Tubbs. Sanaa Lathan wore Escada at the NAACP Image Awards, as IDed by Courtney Justice. Sanaa looked beautiful in the draped neckline melon number. A gold clutch and eye-catching earrings completed her red carpet look.
