Kerry Washington was M.I.A. for months then she shows up to 2 events in one week.

This time she was the hosted an event to celebrate the launch of the Priscilla Rattazzi’s new book, ‘Luna and Lola’.

The event was held at the Ralph Lauren East Hampton store in New York, so it’s not a surprise that the actress was decked out in Ralph Lauren.

She wore a Ralph Lauren pale blue washed silk beaded top from the Spring 2010 collection, which she paired with Ralph Lauren Blue Label white shorts.

To complete the head-to-toe Ralph Lauren look, Kerry wore tan shoes, carried a blue snake-skin clutch and was decked out in Ralph Lauren vintage jewelry.

What a cute summery look.

I love the beaded detail on the neckline of her top and those adorable white shorts.
