Ever the fashion girl, Kerry Washington turned heads once again at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner last night in Washington, D.C.
After her recent Michael Kors eyebrow-raiser, the ‘Scandal’ star stunned in this monochromatic, sweeping halter gown from Wes Gordon’s Fall 2013 outing, paired with Vhemier jewels and a Jil Milan clutch.
I was actually a bit surprised that she picked a dress from this ‘scandalous’ collection for the White House Dinner, as the young designer was said to have been inspired to create looks for a “girl who’s having an affair with one of the Rolling Stones.”
But even with the backless silhouette and the exploded lace-print layered skirt, Kerry managed to tame down the runway exit into a more politically correct look, removing the leather arm gloves (and the edgy, rock-star styling).
The actress really elevates this look from runway grunge to red-carpet refinement.
After pulling back her bangs during her last few appearances, Kerry returned to the full-on fringe, perhaps in honour of the FLOTUS.
