My Oscar Fashion and Style Winner

She may not have walked home with Oscar but she walked on that red carpet feeling confident and elegant. Viola Davis, skipped her wig (which many models and actresses wear to protect their own hair from becoming damaged) and wore her natural locks.  She admitted on the red carpet that her family encouraged her to go wigless.  She recently told InStyle that her husband was the one who first suggested she attend the event sans wig. “My husband wanted me to take the wig off,” Viola tells InStyle. “He said, ‘If you want to wear it for your career, that’s fine, but in your life wear your hair. Step into who you are!’ It’s a powerful statement.”

Ladies and gents, you were born with your curly, straight, wavy, fine and curly kinky hair.  Work with what you have.  There are so many products on the market.  Here is a link to treating your “condition.” Now, go on, “Step into who you are.” (Beautiful)

HER DRESS: GORGEOUS in Vera Wang.  Notice no boob spillage.  If I see another woman (especially you brides to be) trying to squeeze your  triple D’s into a dress and you are spilling out, the dress doesn’t fit.  Viola had just enough support to stand tall and not have to tug the dress up.  If you are constantly adjusting you will not feel confident.

The key to Feeling Confident is being yourself.  You, your natural hair, stand tall (ok throw on heels if you’re short) and a smile.  Sounds so cheesy, I know but true.  A man never looks at a woman and says, I loved her foundation or lipstick, it’s always: SHE HAS A GREAT SMILE or GREAT HAIR or GREAT BODY or GREAT PERSONALITY.  BE THE BEST VERSION of YOU.
