First, let’s discuss the hair: She should wear it like this forever. I didn’t realize how incredible her features are until I saw her without a wig. She gives crazy fierce face in this photoshoot, and she looks a solid ten years younger than her age (46).
Now, the clothes: To die for. Viola is living proof that you don’t have to look like a starving heroin addict to make designer clothes look beautiful. The shoulders and sleeves on this dress are phenomenal. My only problem is with the pose, which makes her look a little amputated, but that gazing-into-the-light face is priceless.

Definitely my favorite shot of this spread. The shoes are fucking phenomenal, her legs look AMAZING, and she can pose like a goddamn supermodel. I may not have gotten around to seeing The Help yet (Editor’s Note: I know, it’s absurd), but I’m rooting for you for the Oscar.
