Darby Stanchfield and Katie Lowes joined Kerry Washington at the recent ‘Scandal’ Season 3 premiere at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City, where their red-carpet entrances couldn’t have been more different.
Darby Stanchfield: The actress donned a Georges Hobeika gown with a grey embellished bodice and off-white chiffon skirt. But even her auburn waves and radiant blush-toned makeup, I was sensing a drabness here, although it was expounded with her distracting, oversized white clutch.
Katie Lowes: Skipping the gown and going straight to the cocktail frock, Katie wore a strapless red Rachel Roy design with gold jewellery and silvery Jean-Michel Cazabat shoes, which was too many mixed metals for my taste. A magenta lip added even more contrasting colours.
With Kerry’s Prada prairie dress added to the lineup of these two ladies’ rather lacklustre looks, this premiere was definitely trending on the fashionably eclectic side. Perhaps it was more of a style scandal than anything else. Do you agree?
