Famous, African American celebrities typically modified their appearance, for the acceptance and approval of those in the industry. Industry standards are dictated and dominated by blondes or brunettes, straight hair, or the occasional red head. Not many respected African American celebs step foot in the public eye with their natural hair, especially if it's of a kinkier texture like Oscar nominee, Viola Davis. Listening to the reactions to one of Viola's first public appearances with her natural hair, the buzz was synonymous. She looked radiant, glamourous and a million times better than her typical grandma wigs, that looked far from customized. Although natural hair is far from being a new trend, Viola transcended all of the Beyonce-ish looks that most Black women actresses choose. Big-ups for Viola accepting, and embracing her black beauty. The Academy Awards is her coming-out party, and a new public acceptance to black women and THEIR beauty. Lets see who the next natural celeb will be?
Oh, and before I forget, wasn't she working that green Vera Wang gown? WUURRRRRKK
