I haven’t seen The Help.  Don’t plan to, either, especially since Toure has put himself at great risk to do so for us. Thank you, brotha.

That said, it’s really great to see this, especially after all of the roles she’s been given where she has to look dowdy. No, Viola really is a beauty and it’s great on a number of levels to see her get this kind of glam treatment.  And it doesn’t hurt that she’s been imaged by the great fashion photographer Ruven Afanador.

See the rest of the shoot via the LA Times Magazine here.
