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.
