How to Get Away With Murdering the Red Carpet: We Still Haven’t Gotten Over Viola Davis at the Golden Globes

We seriously thought the 2018 Golden Globes would be no biggie; a whole gang of black outfits on not enough black people? Easy peasy. And then Viola Davis happened, and worlds were ROCKED. For years now, she’s been teasing us on the red carpet, occasionally giving us amazing natural-hair moments that make us wonder why she ever bothers wearing a wig. And while this year’s look could very well have been a wig (where can we get one?), it was so good, we neither know nor care, because it was pure glory.

Regardless of what look she chooses, Ms. Davis is always smart, kind and important to us. But we have to bow down to her impeccable styling this year, because in true Glow Up fashion, she glossed, flossed and bossed that red carpet. Well done!
