4. Viola Davis, 2018
The renowned actress is known for wearing bold, daring colors to the red carpet, such as bright yellow (2017) and bright red (Golden Globes 2015). In 2018, however, she took part in the TimesUp campaign and opted a black velvet dress to the Golden Globes, in solidarity with victims of sexual assault. Davis is the only black female actress who won the triple crown of the entertainment industry – an Emmy, a Tony, and an Academy Award, and so she makes sure to represent this title with honor, and puts on a show every time she steps on the red carpet.
To match her fierce look and the protest statement attached to her black dress by Brandon Maxwell, the actress wore her hair in it natural Afro, a look that isn’t characteristic for her on the red carpet. This was a personal statement the actress was making, as Afros represent a symbol of resistance.
