The three-time Oscar nominee served up short cut envy in a lengthy layered pixie cut with piecy bangs and highlights by hairstylist Jamika Wilson. Jamika told PeopleStyle said her hair inspiration came from the dress. “I just wanted to go with a fresh look,” she said. “We wanted to go for a look that really showed off her beautiful features and neckline.”

Makeup artist Autumn Moultrie finished off Viola’s gorgeous look with a glowing face beat, golden lip and dramatic eye slay with heavy liner and lashes.
