I was pleasantly surprised to see Kerry Washington on the red carpet at the 2011 New York Film Critics Circle Awards.

The gorgeous actress tends to dress quite conservatively, but she looks super sexy in her Alberto Makali mini.

Her blue and white sequin mini dress is something we would expect to see on Zoe Saldana.

I love Kerry’s wavy locks and those electric blue open-toe ankle boots are gorgeous.

If your gonna switch things up, this is the way to do it.
