It’s hard to believe that Viola Davis has yet to snag a Golden Globe. Previously nominated for her role as Annalise Keating on ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder, as well as for her film work in 2009’s Doubt and 2012’s The Help, the actress is a nominee this year for her performance in the Denzel Washington-directed drama Fences.
And while we can’t wait to see if she’ll finally take home a golden statue this time around, we’re equally as excited to see what she wears.
Last year, the star was incandescent in this gorgeous gown by Marchesa. She looked like something from another galaxy.
In 2015, Viola walked the red carpet in this stunning scarlet rhinestone-embellished dress by Donna Karan Atelier.
In 2012, the actress donned a wine colored grecian style Emilio Pucci gown, with a high slit showing off Jimmy Choo heels.
Davis went for a low-cut number from Max Azria in 2009.
While the star usually goes for a formal approach with full-length ballgowns at the Golden Globes, at other award ceremonies, she’s stepped out with some amazing footwear. Here’s FN’s top three picks of her best shoe style moments on other red carpets.
Here at the 2012 BAFTAs, Davis stunned in a pink gown with a thigh-high slit revealing strappy stilettos.
Similarly, at the 2013 SAG Awards, the actress donned a smaller slit showing off sparkly pumps, to complement her turquoise gown.
And lastly, the Golden Globe nominee shined in gorgeous gold sandals.
