Kerry Washington was the belle of the ball at last night’s Keep a Child Alive Ball in New York City.

The actress donned a modern fairytale Donna Karan Resort 2011 dress.

Her white tulle dress with asymmetrical white frayed strips was paired with some unsuitable, yet predictable, accessories.

I’m thankful she didn’t opt for the Hollywood standard, but these nude pumps just scream safe, whilst her clutch hollers wrong choice.

Her dress is stunning, so it should’ve been accessorised better.

I love the hair, but for the third time in a row I’m not favouring her lip colour.

This is Kerry’s third look this week.

Which was your favourite?

Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren or this Donna Karan dress?
