Viola Davis in Vivienne Westwood at the “Suicide Squad” World Premiere

Posted on August 02, 2016

Viola Davis attends the premiere of “Suicide Squad” at The Beacon Theatre in New York City.

 

Knowing she’d be walking a red carpet with a bunch of attention-seeking actors committed to playing up the “anarchic misfits” vibe of the film, Miss Viola rather wisely opted to keep things rather simple and elegant.

And we think she just about nailed it. Don’t worry, our quibbles are minor. We don’t love the shoes and her makeup seems a little harsh, although we support the idea of a colorful face for a dress like this. She looks spectacular in silver-gray. Love the cuff and the clutch.

Westwoods aren’t always easy to wear. It’s definitely a design house that requires a very specific person to pull off their style. Looks like she’s one of them. She should play around with more of their designs.
