Viola Davis made history last month when she became the first African-American woman to ever receive three Oscar nominations (heck yes!). And it’s time to celebrate, because Davis officially just won her first Academy Award for her role as Rose Maxson in the Denzel Washington-led (and directed!) drama Fences.

But tbh, even if she hadn’t taken home the award, she’d be a winner to us because her outfit was every fashion goal we could ever hope to achieve in either our real lives or dreams.

Just look at this red Armani gown‘s halter neckline and the draped detail around her shoulders. The only thing more impressive is her dazzling smile (although we wouldn’t kick that silver clutch out of bed either).

Somehow the dress is even more gorgeous from the side.

And honestly, slightly unrelated, we hope someone loves us as much as Davis and her husband, fellow actor Julius Tennon, obviously love each other. Seriously, look at those smiles.

Davis spoke highly of Tennon when she took home the Golden Globe for her Fences role last month, and yes, we’re still sighing wistfully.

We love how supportive Davis’s husband is of her career, and hope they have the best time tonight. Because they SERIOUSLY have something to celebrate!
