Multiple award-winning actress Viola Davis is a beautiful woman with an impeccable fashion style. From time to time, she makes sure to remind her fans of this fact.

Taking to Instagram, Davis shared photos of herself donning a maxi yellow dress from ready-to-wear fashion brand Greta Constantine in celebration of her recent win at the AAFCA Awards.

She accessorized the outfit with a pair of yellow Louboutin pumps and teal fringe earrings. She topped off her look with a chic pixie cut hairstyle and glamourous makeup, complementing her dark glowing skin.

In the first slide, Davis struck a namaste pose while flashing a charming smile. The second slide saw her opting for a more playful pose with her hand up in the air. The actress accompanied her pictures with a caption reading:


"Honored to receive the Icon Award last night! Thank you @AAFCA!! ???."


Expectedly, Davis' post stirred up reactions from fans and followers who took to the comments section congratulating her and gushing over her beauty while also leaving compliments on her dress.

One user noted that Davis was glowing, while another wrote that there was no color the actress could not pull off. A third fan described the picture as stunning, with many more simply leaving emojis in admiration.


At the 12th Annual African American Film Critics Association Awards (AAFCA), Davis was honored with the Icon Award, an addition to her already numerous awards and achievements.

In her acceptance speech, she admitted that despite the fame and success, she sometimes feels undeserving of being lauded or recognized. However, she added that she hopes to inspire many young Black girls across the world.


Davis' win at the AAFCA is not the first honor she is receiving in recent times. Earlier this month, she won in the best actress category for her lead role in the film, "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," at this year's edition of the SAG Awards.

There, she gave an inspiring speech, thanking film stars Denzel Washington, August Wilson, George C Wolfe, and late "Black Panther" star Chadwick Boseman for creating a legacy for colored actors.


With a career spanning 25 years, Davis has made a name for herself as one of Hollywood's top actresses. She is also the first African American to achieve the triple threat of acting, having won an Academy Award, a Tony Award, and a Primetime Award.

There are actresses and then there is Davis, the woman with a beautiful smile that won't stop until she proves to every little Black girl out there that, indeed, nothing is impossible.
