Kerry Washington In Valentino – La Mer and Oceana Celebrate World Oceans Day 2011

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.

    I like it, but would have taken it a bit further. She’s a conservative dresser, so it works for her tastes.

    Would have preferred an updo

    I don’t like the fabric of the skirt, it seems a doily.

    Lovely, but I feel this Roger Vivier clutch is being highly overused, this season,isnt it?

    I still want color. All black makes me want to cover my eyes as if blinded by the sun.

      You will need to set up an account with them and buy the pictures from them directly.

    Kerry looks so pretty in this – I don’t like most lace dresses but I adore the design of this one, the contrast of the lace bodice panel to the floral embroidery on the skirt hits just the right note….

    It looks better on her than on Zooey Deschanel (that’s the same dress she was reading at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, right ?), Kelly looks more put together.

      I think it is the same dress, but I thought it suited Zooey’s style more. They both look beautiful in it, however.

    I like this dress but maybe I would have liked it more a bit shorter.

  13. Nia May 20, 2011 at 16:35 #

    I like this a lot.

  14. Estranged May 20, 2011 at 16:33 #

    I prefer the runway shoes, but the dress is beautiful.

  15. maria May 20, 2011 at 16:26 #
