Viola Davis is truly a woman after our own heart. After she won the Oscar for Actress in a supporting role for her character in Fences and brought the internet to tears, Davis聽went backstage, took off her fire-engine red Stuart Weitzman heels, and slipped聽on a pair of crimson聽YRU Qozmo Hi Platforms ($100) to match her Armani Priv茅 dress.

Her stylist, Elizabeth Stewart, shared a super relatable pic聽on Instagram, writing, 鈥淟ive from backstage! The incomparable聽@violadavis聽after her OSCAR WIN!! With brilliant team member聽@jennybrunt1聽backstage at the ready with聽@yrushoes聽platforms for comfort. Thanks聽@stuartweitzman聽for carrying Viola to the win!鈥

So we weren鈥檛 too surprised that she didn鈥檛 put her heels back on for the Vanity Fair after-party. Instead, Davis opted to wear a pair of Stella McCartney Creepers ($950) with her Brandon Maxwell lapel jacket and wide-leg pants. Casual AND cool.

It鈥檚 not the only trick the Oscar winner has up her sleeve for heel pain. The How to Get Away With Murder actress often talks about prioritizing comfort without sacrificing style at award shows. She admitted to the Coveteur that for the SAG Awards, she sprayed Still Standing ($30) all over her feet to stay upright.
