Kerry Washington In Giambattista Valli – 3rd Annual Celebrate Sundance Institute Los Angeles Benefit

Kerry Washington In Calvin Klein - 3rd Annual Celebrate Sundance Institute Los Angeles Benefit

Kerry Washington attended the 2013 ‘Celebrate Sundance Institute’ Los Angeles Benefit at The Lot in West Hollywood, California on Wednesday evening, where she presented the Vanguard Award to director Ryan Coogler.

You guys gave her a mixed reaction to her CFDA Fashion Awards gown, but I have a feeling there will be no such division with this all-white look.

Kerry wore a Giambattista Valli white sleeveless dress with an abstract lace overlay.

Opting for matching accessories, she carried a Nancy Gonzalez clutch and pointy pumps from Christian Louboutin.

Having gone au natural the last time she hit the red carpet, Kerry opted for kohl-rimmed eyes, luscious lashes and nude glossy lips on this occasion.

    I like her white-on-white styling, and the material of the dress–but it’s so shapeless and poorly fitted. The hem is terrible as well.

    omggggg i am soo sick of white pumps, they look awful and cheapen everything

    It’s pretty it just doesn’t fit. She needed to go down a size or two. If the hem has been altered (it seems a bit wavy), it could have come up a couple of inches.

    Let’s just say everything that made it into the close up (make up, hair, earring, colour and pattern of the dress) are great. Everything relegated to the full shot is hit (watch, pumps–benefit of the doubt for the latter) or miss (length and fit of the dress, clutch whose texture is too close to the pattern of the dress).

    A clear case of hmmmm.

    I don’t mind matchy matchy, but this look isn’t really doing anything for me. As others have said, the hemline is awful and I find myself wishing her pumps were sandals and the clutch metallic. I prefer Kerry’s CFDA outfit.

    The dress is not for her, doesn’t look good on her. Did she fix it by hand down there? Hahaha! A big yes for a clutch and that sexy pump.

    I like the length, it better than constant knee length. The overlay makes for a great effect.

    I like this look.

    She is, of course gorgeous. The texture of the dress is interesting, but unfortunately those are the only positives. The dress is not well fitted, is clumsily hemmed, and the shoes are wrong – they are too big and too white and boring. Not a win.

    Hair and makeup are lovely. I like the contrast of the white against her brown skin. if the dress was shortened to the knee and cinched in more to her figure I would have liked this better.

    Too big, too long and the hem is wonky. Love her hair and makeup, but that is all.

    A belt would’ve helped to give this dress a shape. It would’ve been also better had the dress been a tad shorter, just under the knee. I love how this all white outfit looks against her skin tone though.

      I don’t miss a belt but I agree about the hemline. This dress would definitely look better shorter.
      I also don’t like how the shoes and the clutch match each other and the dress. I wish she had picked one of the them in a different colour.
      Her flawless hair and makeup I love.

    I don’t lihe the dress. It’s too long and I think too big for Kerry.
    I like her make up.

    • MaddyEliza June 6, 2013 at 13:03 #

      Agreed! Definitely too big.

      • MaddyEliza June 6, 2013 at 13:04 #

        She needs a cute thin belt. 🙁

    • Rashmi June 6, 2013 at 13:21 #

      +2. Too big and missing a belt 🙁
