Viola Davis is OK with You Looking at Her “Ta-Tas”

February 21st, 2012

Hollywood doesn’t have a lot of categories for the on-screen image of Black actresses—no matter whether the role is sister, best friend, confidante or housekeeper, the image is usually de-sexed Mammy or oversexed va-va-voom lady. Recently, things have gotten a little better, with Black women allowed to look more normal on screen, less like they’re about to join a convent or a whorehouse. But poor Viola Davis may get a lot of well-deserved accolades for her roles, but she often gets the sad sack of the wardrobe and wig department. Which explains why heads keep turning (and blogs keep being written) every time we see a sexier, more modern side of The Help star. First, there was her LA Times Magazine photo shoot, where the world gasped appreciatively at her natural hair and high fashion styling.

Now there is her red carpet look from last week’s NAACP Image Awards. The nominee, and eventual NAACP Image award winner, pulled out all the stops in an orange Herve L. Leroux gown. You may have missed that the dress had a halter cut or that she accessorized it with a Judith Lieber clutch, since the main stars were her breasts, out for the night to enjoy the Hollywood pageantry. “I picked [the dress] because of the color. I didn’t realize my ta-tas would be so prevalent,” the 46-year-old Oscar nominee told Us Weekly. “I just pushed them up. I felt as long as they weren’t hanging down to my knees I’m doing pretty good.”

Simple requirements, stunning look, a win-win for Davis. But how will she top that at the Oscars (maybe with a nod to Prince in cheek-less chaps)?

Hi there. I was just wondering why its such a big thing these days to have a ridiculous amount of ram in a computer? People tell me that the more Ram you have in your computer the faster your computer will be. I always thought that it was the processor that controls the speed of a computer and not the Ram.. . I had 512MB of Ram in my laptop and I have now changed it to 2Gigs of Ram and I’ve seen no difference in performance what so ever. . Could somebody please explain to me what does Ram does exactly?. Thanks in advance.
