Kerry Washington In Prada – 2014 Emmy Awards


Kerry Washington dazzled everyone who saw her on the red carpet of the 2014 Emmy Awards tonight (August 25) at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.

The ‘Scandal’ star and new mom wore an eye-catching orange double silk cady strapless column Prada gown with blue, green and clear micro-bed enriched edges and an underlying navy mini skirt embroidered with crystals and paillettes.

A Prada clutch and pumps and Fred Leighton jewelry completed the look.

This dress has everything a memorable red carpet gown should: A fabulous color, an unexpected detail and some drama, and Kerry is the perfect woman to pull it off.

And, lest you ever think Kerry should rest on the laurels of a great gown, she also pulled out an incredible beauty look with a blue smokey eye and new lob hairstyle.

Are you as enchanted as I am?

    Not for me.

    I wish her hair wasn’t ombre and that she had worn an interesting strappy sandal, then I might have like a bit more.

    Loathed it. Hair looks dry. Makeup divine.

    I’m actually on the fence with this look. I like the orange colour and I like the pops of blue, but the execution isn’t that great…

  5. Marko_M August 26, 2014 at 12:07 #

    Really don’t like the dress…the beading looks as if it was applied with a glue gun.

  6. Denise August 26, 2014 at 09:20 #

    NO. To everything.

  7. Marcel August 26, 2014 at 09:10 #

    This is just another version of the disaster Miuccia showed months ago on the red carpet.
    She seems to be on a mission to make gorgeous women to look silly. Here she got it again.

  8. Moody Crab August 26, 2014 at 09:01 #

    I love it – the colour, the design, the peek-a-book skirt insert, the beading etc! Gorge!! Kerry looks flawless.

  9. Valissa August 26, 2014 at 08:43 #

    I’m going to ignore the shoes and clutch and say that I love this! It’s different, interesting and beautiful! Another favourite from the night

  10. Sanya August 26, 2014 at 08:09 #

    I love this dress. It’s hot, it’s dramatic and the color is divine. That orange looks so god with her skin tone. Hair and make up aren’t so impressive.

  11. Peony August 26, 2014 at 07:45 #

    Prada makes some of the ugliest red carpet gowns in the world. It’s really quite impressive, in a way. Kerry manages to get away with this because she’s so beautiful. Not loving the hair either.

  12. Yeliz August 26, 2014 at 06:43 #

    I actually like the dress, but the hair ruins this look a bit. Nevertheless she looks comfortable and that makes me like this look.

  13. jenny August 26, 2014 at 06:36 #

    I like this a lot!
    I was dying to know who designed this when I saw it!
    There are parts of it I am not a fan off, but the dress is so refreshing.

    I would have preferred long straight locks, This is no something I expect from the emmys, it was indeed a refreshing surprise

  14. Janani August 26, 2014 at 06:24 #

    This is currently my favorite look for the night – love the unexpected silhoutte, the color combination and how gorgeous she looks!

  15. Alina August 26, 2014 at 06:08 #

    Kerry, pleeeease, stay away from Prada! It’s NOT good.

  16. Dhppy August 26, 2014 at 06:00 #

    These celebrities need to learn, if you keep feeding Prada, it will just keep coming back.

  17. pinksugar August 26, 2014 at 05:26 #

    I am not a fan of this dress in general but I am certainly not a fan of it for the Emmys.

  18. Sadie August 26, 2014 at 05:25 #

    I actually love the dress and makeup but the hair ruins the look for me

  19. julyol1972 August 26, 2014 at 05:12 #

    Kerry, no! This…it…no!!!!

  20. Renata August 26, 2014 at 04:51 #

    This is so weird and lackluster in my opinion. It looks like she has some type of shorts that wasn’t supposed to be there underneath the dress, the shoes were a boring choice as well. I’m sorry but this is a no for me.

  21. Sandy August 26, 2014 at 04:35 #

    She looks great .

  22. the ogre August 26, 2014 at 04:33 #

    She looked great when she walked onto the stage to present an award at the ceremony. It doesn’t really translate well this way. But it seemed as if she did have some difficulty walking in it. So I’m not completely enamoured.

  23. Jess August 26, 2014 at 04:13 #

    I am surprised at the dislike for the dress and the accessories, my immediate reaction was to love the blue/orange combo. I understand the hair comments, but I actually love the overall styling, and Kerry looks great!

  24. Fashionplate August 26, 2014 at 04:05 #

    There were many ugly or revealing or mediocre gowns seen on the red carpet. I’d classify the above dress as mediocre w/ a touch of ugly.

  25. brat August 26, 2014 at 03:32 #


  26. sophie August 26, 2014 at 03:31 #

    Boring accessories. Love everything else.

  27. Nadine August 26, 2014 at 03:18 #

    Like the dress quite a bit.

  28. Anj August 26, 2014 at 03:13 #

    I really dislike the slit with the navy skirt. If this was just the orange gown all the way through, I would’ve called it a success. Unfortunately, this detail completely ruined what could’ve been a good dress.

  29. Dil August 26, 2014 at 03:11 #

    The hair limp..spoils the look..loved the gown though!

  30. Marybeth August 26, 2014 at 03:10 #

    Like just about every Prada gown I see on the red carpet, this looks poorly tailored. The embellishment looks amateurish and cheap to me.

    The bodice doesn’t fit properly.
    The hair is over-processed.

    I do love the color.

    • gabis August 26, 2014 at 13:13 #

      Agree on all points. Plus the accessories are awful. Apart from the color I also love her eye makeup.

    • Giada August 28, 2014 at 09:48 #


  31. dea August 26, 2014 at 03:06 #

    I want to like it, because I usually love what’s she’s wearing, but it just looks like Halloween to me. It’s an ugly dress in an ugly color (& those seam embellishments… wtf?).
    I agree with Christine about the hair. It looks burnt with flat iron.

    • dea August 26, 2014 at 03:09 #

      Someone stop Miuccia from making red carpet gowns. Please. That woman doesn’t know how to edit her own work. It’s more often a miss than a hit.

  32. Cate August 26, 2014 at 03:06 #

    Like the dress, but blue clutch and black shoes? and the dry / frizzy hair? No no

  33. Alex V August 26, 2014 at 03:04 #

    Can we crown Emmys’ now the best dressed event of the year?
    Ok, now Kerry, iugh! That black underskirt ruins the dress!

  34. easyBlake August 26, 2014 at 03:04 #

    I like it. I wish the bodice was a bit better fitting – or is the dress twisted? Anyway, the color is beautiful against her skin.

  35. Pedro August 26, 2014 at 03:01 #

    The dress is so ugly, i’m really disappointed.

    Great make up and that’s it

  36. Nat39 August 26, 2014 at 03:00 #

    The hair is bad, it ruins the look for me. Too bad b/c the gown is nice and unusual.

  37. Christine August 26, 2014 at 02:58 #

    The hair looks dry and I am not a fan of this weird looking dress.

  38. Alex August 26, 2014 at 02:56 #

    I’m on the fence about this look. I want to love it, but I’m not convinced.
