Viola Davis' Oscars Dress Brought Stylist Elizabeth Stewart to Tears


Viola Davis knows how to bring a crowd to tears (is there an awards show for most sentimental awards show speeches yet?), but it turns out that beyond her words, her style can also have the misty-eyed effect. 

During an interview conducted by the Fences actress' 6-year-old daughter, Genesis, on the day of Davis' Oscars gown fitting, stylist Elizabeth Stewart revealed that the red Armani off-the-shoulder stunner actually brought her to tears.

"The last emotional reaction I had to an item of clothing was five minutes ago when we tried on Viola's Oscars dress," she said. "It brought tears to my eyes." 

Watch the video above to find out Stewart's best style tip, the trend she wishes would just die already as well as Genesis' favorite gown worn by her mama this year.
