Looks like she took her husband’s advice! After making waves with her striking short hairstyle on the cover of the Los Angeles Times Magazine, Viola Davis admitted that, thanks to encouragement from hubby Julius Tennon, she was planning to embrace her natural locks — and at Sunday’s Academy Awards, she did just that.

Offsetting her rich reddish crop with an emerald-hued Vera Wang gown and glamorous green earrings, Davis looked completely comfortable — and totally stunning — as she walked down the carpet to take her seat in the theater as a best actress nominee for The Help. Says the star of changing up her style, “It gives me flavor. It makes me feel like I’m spicing up my life a bit.”

Tell us: Are you glad Davis rocked her natural locks at the Oscars?
