Kerry Washington attended World Ocean Day 2011 celebrated by La Mer and Oceana at Affirmation Arts in New York City this week.

The actress looked divine wearing a Valentino Spring 2011 dress.

Her delicate black sheer dress with floral embroidered details on the skirt and a lace panel on the bodice was teamed with the standard ‘Hollywood’ black pumps and a Roger Vivier clutch.

Soft curls and glossy lips completed her look.

There is nothing for me to fault here. I don’t even mind the pumps on this occasion.
