2017 End of the Year Style Awards: Best Use of Color

Earlier I talked about how Janelle Monae killed the game this year wearing pretty much black and white exclusively. That is something that I was really surprised with. I am a lover of color. Bright, bold color. We tend to see stars stick to really simple looks in neutral and muted colors. This year Viola Davis took home a Golden Globe and an Oscar, as well as attending many other events from the BET Honors to the Emmy’s wearing some of the brightest looks on the red carpet. Viola loves color, she always has. I love that in the face of a full awards season campaign that she didn’t go classic and subtle with her color palette. She kicked off the year wearing a custom yellow one shoulder Michael Kors gown at the Golden Globe Awards.  It became a moment of the night when she was stopped by Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet and he asked what color she was wearing and she didn’t mince words and exclaimed YELLOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. She emphasized the color while shutting down Ryan’s stupid question. I think he was looking for an answer like when Saoirse Ronan and Lupita Nyong’o used memories of their home countries to describe the color of gowns that they have worn in the past. Viola is just a straight to the point kind of person. Her custom red Armani Prive Oscar gown, hot pink Christian Siriano halter gown, aqua embellished Michael Kors, and burnt orange custom Zac Posen gowns all added to the major bold color moments that Viola had over the course of this year on the red carpet.
