Rest assured that no matter what wins took place inside The Oscars last night, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer were the best actresses on the red carpet.

Davis was striking. Her cropped natural hair, styled by her mother, appeared the shade of a shiny, new, copper penny. Her jewels aglow with hints of diamond sparkled, and her Vera Wang gown, a bold enchantment in emerald, swept the red carpet as she walked.

For Spencer, she looked her absolute best. Shining brilliantly on her big night in a hand beaded ivory gown with short sleeves and an accentuated waist. The classic style only appeared to be from a man who knows her approach to her craft the best—Tadashi Shoji. Her clutch and earrings seemed gleaming with excitement as the power colors played a subdued role in her makeup. The ladies delivered and for that, we look forward to more style to come in their booming careers.
