From Viola Davis's big chop to Ledisi's lust-worthy locs, 12 months of fab styles from fierce naturalistas.
Viola Davis Does the Big Chop
Viola Davis made a big statement by going natural at the ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood event. She later sported her chic coif at the Academy Awards, and it completely revamped her red carpet look for a bolder, fresher feel. "I feel very powerful, I really do," said Davis, about wearing her natural hair. "I feel more powerful every day, more secure in who I am, and I've waited so long for that... It feels so divine."
