Kerry Washington In Marchesa – Glamour’s 2011 Women Of The Year Awards

Kerry Washington was also out to enjoy Glamour’s 2011 Women of the Year Awards in New York City.

The actress always knows how to stun on the red carpet.

Her lemon Resort 2012 Marchesa strapless dress with a daring thigh-high split, cascade front and embroidered waist detail was no exception.

Although the colour of the gown is very summery, this hue works as it complemented her skin tone beautifully.

She paired her frock with a white opal beaded Marchesa clutch and diamond earrings.

Kerry’s favourite Christian Louboutin nude pointy heels and a wavy updo completed her choice of accessories for the night.

Despite its summery nature, the overall look was without doubt sensational.

    She looks so lovely that I will ignore those pumps, which are at least unobtrusive. I normally dislike blingy large earrings but adore hers along with the brooch at the hip. Her hair is beautifully romantic. She should wear color – not dusty, not pastel, not muted but jewelled and saturated — more often.

    Kerry never has a bad red carpet day it seems.

    Stunning!! I can’t stand the pointy pumps but that’s just my personal taste. This look is gorgeous!

    I love Kerry, but not this look, considering it looks EXACTLY like my younger sister’s prom dress. No doubt The color is great for her though.

    Finally, a suitable lip colour. Just needs to work on shoe choices now and then she golden.

    Pretty perfect in my opinion. /but she has some tough competittion for BDOTW

    She looks weird, she is way to skinny for the size of her head. The dress is nice though

      Couldn’t agree more. She use to be slim but now she is so skinny. I’ve lost my love for her. All those dresses makes her look .. weird.

      +1. Although it looks like a prom dress, the color is divine for her. She’s stunning, but looking scary skinny from the waist up.

    Love, love, love!

    Also her eyebrows are beautiful

    SHE is beautiful. This dress looks like a cheap prom dress and the shoes are ugly.

  10. DivaMom November 8, 2011 at 14:46 #

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, simple GOR-JUS!!!! Give this gal best dressed of the year! LOL

  11. mm November 8, 2011 at 15:28 #

    I love it especially hair and make up

  12. dee November 8, 2011 at 15:30 #

    I am not too crazy about the gown. It looks too prom like. Shoes ruin this too. Hair, makeup and earrings are great.

  13. andrea November 8, 2011 at 15:38 #

    Definitely a BDOTW contender. She is a stunner for sure. Simply fabulous.

  14. Alina November 8, 2011 at 15:43 #

    Looove !

  15. Laura November 8, 2011 at 15:44 #

    Are you sure this is Marchesa? LOL, I’m kidding. This is such a different kind of Marchesa dress. I love it. Yellow is a great color for Kerry. I really do love it…minus the shoes.

    • Fashion Critic November 8, 2011 at 16:04 #

      I agree very different for Marchesa

  16. Nadin November 8, 2011 at 15:51 #

    The color against her skin tone is lovely, but those louboutins are so wrong here.

  17. Nat39 November 8, 2011 at 17:46 #

    It`s a lovely look, I can overlook the pumps.
    But her shoulders look so disproportionately small, rather disturbing and offputting, can hardly look past them (a pic. angle? too small naturally?…)

  18. Iris November 8, 2011 at 23:08 #

    She looks beautiful but a little emaciated.

  19. gurlygurl November 9, 2011 at 01:39 #

    I love Kerry, she’s all class. This is not my fave look of hers.. does invoke feelings of “prom night” but she still looks amazing. Not loving the shoes but the dress color is great, it fits well and her hair and make up are stunning.

    I’m very happy to see someone wearing this dress. One of my favourite looks from that collection, but the poor thing looks like a bobble head. Either she is very underweight or she’s pulling her shoulders back. And I would have liked for her to wear delicate strappy heels with this look rather than pumps.

  21. Jones19 November 9, 2011 at 13:45 #

    I like this look but what puts me off it is that it’s November and this is so summery. All wrong for the season.

  22. Jen November 10, 2011 at 03:39 #

    I dunno, reads bridesmaid to me.
