Kerry Washington looked very statuesque on the red carpet whilst arriving at the Lincoln Center in New York City for An Evening with Ralph Lauren hosted by Oprah Winfrey.

She opted for a shimmering black Ralph Lauren Fall 2011 gown.

I love the silver beaded metallic ringed neckline which makes her look like a beautiful Masai warrior.

She selected a complementary silver Raven Kauffman Couture ‘Charlie’ clutch and swept her hair back into a sleek bun.

Red-hot lips completed her look.

I’m so glad to see Kerry go for such a sexy, interesting look as she has a tendency to work the same sugary look on the red carpet.
