Red carpet season guarantees a few things, like awkward host jokes and a slew of trending Twitter topics. Another certainty: Viola Davis will come to slay… and she did just that at the Golden Globes tonight. The How To Get Away With Murder star wore a crown of dark brown curls and coils, stretched to perfection by her hairstylist Jamika Wilson. Her natural texture was further enhanced by her makeup (created by artist Autumn Moultrie): coppery lids, mile-long lashes, a metallic lip, and a highlight that rivaled the trophy she was presenting.

It’s a lesson that she’s committed to passing on to her 7-year-old daughter Genesis. Davis posed with Genesis, who wore her own beautiful curls, before this year’s Golden Globes ceremony. “I don’t care how stereotypical it is, beauty has got to come from the inside,” Davis told us, when asked what she hopes to teach Genesis about beauty. “It’s got to come from owning her story — all of it. Her failures, her insecurities, her strength, her joy, all of it. There’s not one thing she can leave on the side of the road and not claim. That’s all I want for her.”
We’ve reached out to Viola Davis’ hair and makeup teams for more details and will update this post as soon as we hear back.
