Kerry Washington opted for a bright hue on the red carpet for the 2012 American Music Awards on Sunday evening.

I’m making a mental note to wear more yellow next summer following how divine the ‘Scandal’ actress looks wearing this Stella McCartney Resort 2013 dress.

Her sunflower long-sleeve lace dress with a fringed underlay was expertly styled with coral pumps, which matched her lips, and a yellow Kotur clutch which matched her dress.

A sexy faux bob and a statement ring completed her look.

This was my favourite look by far at this event. Only Ginnifer Goodwin comes close.
