Kerry Washington attended the 16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California last night.

The ‘Scandal’ actress wore a Monique Lhuiller Spring 2012 dress.

Her black-and-white splatter-print dress was so very appropriate for the occasion.

Borgioni earrings, a Louis Vuitton clutch and black satin pumps with a taupe bow at the front and navy bow at the back accessorized her look with a half-up, half-down chic hairstyle providing the finishing touches along with flawless makeup.

I love everything sans the bows on her pumps.
