Kerry Washington In Suno – Out In New York City

Kerry Washington In Suno - Out In New York City

With ‘Scandal’ returning to ABC on September 25, Kerry Washington kick-started her promotion of the hit TV series in New York City on Tuesday (September 16).

Suno is known for their unique prints, textures and embroidery; Kerry’s mini dress features a slice of each of the line’s signature design elements. I just love the boxy, geometric layers which are carefully tailored while details like the large front panel update the dress, making it an ultra-modern piece – pleats and all.

White pumps and her self-designed clutch – for the 2014 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Program – complemented her look.

You weren’t crazy about this clutch at the unveiling the day before. How does it fare on this occasion?

Kerry Washington In Alexander McQueen – 2014 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Program

Kerry Washington In Alexander McQueen - 2014 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Program

Kerry Washington hosted the 2014 Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Program held at The Glasshouses on Monday (September 15) in New York City.

Working a sexier look than we are used to from the ‘Scandal’ star, she wore a green leather Alexander McQueen Resort 2015 strapless bustier dress.

With her purple purse the focus of this look, she complemented the arm candy with matching Casadei pumps.

While I love the complementary eye makeup and the crinkle effect of the leather, I feel like this dress is perhaps missing a belt.

Should Kerry have belted this look?

FYI: Kerry designed the purse for the Allstate Foundation. The foundation was set up to help combat domestic violence and financial abuse. Read more about it here.

Emmy Awards Beauty Trend Spotting: The New Nude Lip

Emmy Awards Beauty Trend Spotting The New Nude Lip

This isn’t the traditional nude that camouflages your lips, making them unnoticeable. The new nude lips actually accentuate the natural tones of your skin allowing lips to pop in the subtlest way. Take cue from Julia Roberts, Kerry Washington, Lizzy Caplan, and Natalie Dorimer who were amongst the many celebs that flaunted the updated au naturel trend on the red carpet at the 2014 Emmy Awards.

Carole Gonzalez balanced Kerry Washington’s navy smokey eye with an updated nude lip. Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Warm Caramel was used to make her neutral pout pop. The shimmering shade provides sheer wash of color and is ideal for complexions with warm undertones. When choosing a nude it’s important to pay attention to your skin’s undertones.

Los Angeles based celebrity makeup artist, Jake Bailey played up the flesh tones on Natalie Dorimer. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide- On Lip Pencil in Naked was used to line her lips. You can even make more room in your clutch and leave this one at home. This waterproof liner will get you through the entire evening. It also doubles as a primer to prep lips for lipstick or a gloss.

Bailey topped off Dorimer’s look with L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in Pink Perseverance. This shade works well on those who have cool undertones and it won’t leave lips feeling dry like other stains.

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?
