Kerry Washington stepped out in the red carpet at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday afternoon for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s 2012 Installation Luncheon.

The ‘Scandal’ star embraced summer’s bright hues, wearing a pink Christian Dior Resort 2013 dress.

The feminine frock features a fit-and-flare silhouette with wide red stripes accenting the voluminous skirt, which is the same dress we saw on Jessica Biel recently.

Keeping her accessories neutral, Kerry opted for simple nude Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps and minimal jewelry.

Retro-inspired curls and bright magenta lippie complete the look.

The shoes are a bit of a snooze, but perfectly appropriate for a luncheon.
