Kerry Washington posed for photographers on the red carpet at the discussion panel for ‘Django Unchained’ during Comic-Con 2012 on Saturday in San Diego, California.

The actress teamed an A.L.C. black leather button-down sleeveless shirt with a bold J. Mendel Resort 2013 floral-print high-waisted A-line skirt.

I adore that striking J. Mendel floral print, but the overall styling is quite bad by Kerry’s standards.

The leather top, which looks tight around the bust, was a bad idea as was the purple belt with the gold accent.

I also dislike the clunky footwear. What a difference an orange pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals, Nicholas Kirkwoods or Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalles’ would have made.

Minimal jewels, a bouffant ponytail with side-swept bangs and a bold red lip colour completed her rather disappointing look.
