Kerry Washington In Halston Heritage – Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and SAG-AFTRA Celebrations of the Emmy Award Nominees

Kerry Washington In Halston Heritage - Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and SAG-AFTRA Celebrations of the Emmy Award Nominees

Kerry Washington attended the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and SAG-AFTRA celebration of the 65th Primetime Emmy Award Nominees held at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in North Hollywood, California yesterday evening.

As you know, I have a huge girl crush on Kerry, so I will say this very slowly because even I can’t believe it. There. Is. Not. One. Thing. I. Like. About. This. Look.

Firstly, her pink Halston Heritage dress has too much going on, with the ruffles, the tiers and the hip-expanding skirt.

The white accessories feel very played out. After a summer of being forced to appreciate white pumps, I now feel very fatigued by them here.

Even as a lover of matchy-matchy accessories, the white Nancy Gonzalez ‘Croc Curve Razor’ clutch adds nothing to the look.

Hair and makeup will get a thumbs up, but I do not like anything from the neck down.

    I’m disappointed. Hope she redeems herself at the Emmys.

      +1 Not one of her best looks for sure. Neck up gorgeous but neck down it’s like secondhand junior prom.

    • Rashmi September 18, 2013 at 18:03 #

      +1 . Hope she gets back to her best at Emmys.

    the dress is so unflaterring ! It looks like she has no waist and no breast ! And the white accessories are too harsh against the color of the dress. I like the earrings and the make up, she is beautiful.

      Exactly. Total bummer. Everyone has an off day.

      Lol, FC: “After a summer of being forced to appreciate white pumps…” I feel you, totally! :-)

    I agree. Nothing really works here. I’m not even liking the hair and makeup. The hair is too harsh and the pink lips are a little too much with the pink dress! A complete miss…

    I actually don’t even like the hair.

  5. Mandy September 18, 2013 at 11:08 #

    An unfortunate and rare miss for Kerry. My fingers are crossed for a fabulous Emmy look.

    I don’t think it’s that bad. It’s not great, but it’s not terrible, either. I like the colour of the dress, although the dress itself isn’t really flattering for her figure. I don’t mind the white accessories, I think they’re OK.

  7. Denise September 18, 2013 at 11:23 #

    The dress is not flattering, it makes her look wider than she is, the colour is beautiful though and so is she from the neck up.

  8. Christine September 18, 2013 at 11:58 #

    Not liking the look either

  9. Yeliz September 18, 2013 at 13:47 #

    This is a big miss. The dress is unflattering and too twee and the styling is bad.

  10. H September 18, 2013 at 14:57 #

    Really unflattering and is doing nothing for her. As I have a huge crush as well, I will say some not-so-well-dressed moments are necessary, but I know she will shut down thge Emmy Awards, I hope so.

  11. Jolene September 18, 2013 at 15:11 #

    I am not liking it. It is all wrong from neck down. ENOUGH OF WHITE STILETTOS .

  12. TeaAtTwo September 18, 2013 at 15:26 #

    I know writing this post must have been difficult. Hope she redeems herself on her next outing.

  13. Rebecca Z September 18, 2013 at 15:55 #

    Yep–it’s a miss. But, everyone gets a few….

  14. Moxie September 18, 2013 at 16:32 #

    A swing and a miss.

  15. Nat39 September 18, 2013 at 18:46 #

    I don’t know what hurts my eyes more – the awkward fussy pink ruffles or the flashy matchy-matchy white accessories. Clearly a miss from the neck down.

  16. sara September 18, 2013 at 22:44 #

    What an awful look… not even her beautiful face can save this mess of a dress

  17. Prudence September 19, 2013 at 02:08 #

    oh lordy, such a gorgeous color on an ugly dress!!!!

  18. Kathy September 19, 2013 at 02:33 #

    Hate this ghastly shade of pink. The dress is much too twee for someone like Kerry. It also makes her look thick in the middle, which she isn’t at all. Her hair and makeup are the same as always…you could literally cut and paste her face onto any one of dozens of red carpet pictures from the past six months and no one would know the difference.

  19. Ramona Oana September 19, 2013 at 11:37 #

    I like a lot her lipstick colour.

  20. Larissa September 19, 2013 at 13:13 #

    In my opinion the dress looks kind of cheap and the accessories are not helping at all. It’s a shame, her makeup is perfect.

  21. Reez September 19, 2013 at 18:57 #

    a big miss for usually flawless Kerry

  22. Amanda September 19, 2013 at 23:38 #

    Agreed!

  23. Jess2 September 20, 2013 at 13:11 #

    I agree, I only like this from the neck up.
