Best dressed at the Oscars: Viola Davis or Taraji P. Henson?

The red carpet at the Oscars is always packed with glamour, but both Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson stood out in a room full of fashion A-listers -- making every best-dressed list this year for their breathtaking ensembles. Davis turned heads in a custom scarlet Armani dress (which paired perfectly with her Oscar), while Henson smoldered in a blue velvet Alberto Ferretti. Who slayed more?

PERSPECTIVES

That color, the cut, the fit ... Viola's dress was queenly perfection. Glamour, People and Bustle all put Viola on their best-dressed lists, and Vogue called the gown Davis's "most stunning red carpet look yet."

 

The Daily Mail called Henson "the epitome of Hollywood glamour." She evoked Elizabeth Taylor in her sultry blue velvet and sparkling jewels, and definitely sported the best thigh-high skirt slit of the night. E! Online, Mercury News, and Boston.com all named her best-dressed.

 

Viola complemented her dress with the ultimate accessory--a golden Oscar for her role in "Fences." Many agreed last night was really her night.

My #1 pick for Best Dressed at last night's Academy Awards red carpet is Viola Davis. (We lived in Viola's world last night.) pic.twitter.com/W2hUMH0I0V

But Taraji's look was also on fire. She was owning that red carpet, and she knew it.

They both embodied regality, royalty, and glamour.

Maybe it was a tie, but if you had to choose (which you do) would you say #ViolaSlayed or #TarajiSlayed?
