Back in 2009 Viola Davis had just received an Oscar nomination for Doubt. It would be two years before her award-winning performance in The Help and five years before How To Get Away With Murder solidified her as a mainstream star. In 2009 Viola did a photo shoot for the June issue of O Magazine wearing looks inspired by Marilyn Monroe. And it is everything!
Viola modeled 10 looks for the spread, entitled Retro Fashion with Timeless Glamour, and discussed her rising fame;
““It’s good this happened later in life, because I’m more comfortable with how I look now,” says Davis, 43. “I’m not comparing my body with Halle Berry’s anymore!… “I’ve been catapulted out of my former life,” she says. What sustains her is a sense of “what is reliable and constant and true.””
