Award ceremonies may or may not be becoming more irrelevant, but the fabulous fashion that comes with the award's season will never go out of style. While the media usually spotlights the younger talent on the red carpet, this year the women to watch not only have natural beauty on their side, but the seasoned sense of grace and confidence that comes only with time. Case in point, the SAG award winning, Globes and Oscar-nominated Viola Davis, as featured in the newest issue of Los Angeles Times Magazine.

Showing us a fiercely glamorous side that we often don't see, Davis rocks a super short natural, putting her gorgeous features and flawless skin front and center. Dressed to the gods in a breathtaking collection of Jason Woo, Theirry Mugler, Marchesa, and Costume National, the statuesque actress appears as regal and beautiful as a black swan, sailing seamlessly from page to page with the same exuberance seen in her performances. This shoot clearly demonstrates that age certainly ain't nothing but a number. As wonderfully as she plays the strong, yet introverted character often given to her, wouldn't it be great to watch Viola in a role that boldly exhibited her beauty, femininity, and sensuality as a Black woman?
