The Oscar-winning star was nominated for yet another award for her role as General Nanisca in "The Woman King" — praised as a career-best for the actress.
Competing against her in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama category is Ana de Armas for "Blonde," Cate Blanchett for "TÁR," Olivia Colman for "Empire of Light," and Michelle Williams for "The Fablemans."
The star's form-fitting blue gown was a custom design by Jason Wu, which she paired with a silver clutch by high-street designer Kurt Geiger.
Her stylish, Elizabeth Stewart, who also worked with Golden Globes nominee Jessica Chastain, posted a series of behind-the-scenes photos on her Instagram account, highlighting Davis' Chopard jewels and her hair and makeup teams.
"Yasssssssssss," dress designer Jason Wu commented on the post.
"Stunning!" fellow stylist Samantha McMillen penned.
Viola Davis is the "freaking queen," wrote another Instagram user.
"Electric blue for an electric actor!" commented one fan.
"Queen Viola," raved another. She is "gorgeous [from] head to toe!"
