Kerry Washington In Oscar de la Renta – 2014 Baby2Baby Gala

Kerry Washington In Oscar de la Renta - 2014 Baby2Baby Gala

Kerry Washington attended the 2014 Baby2Baby Gala held at The Book Bindery on Saturday (November 8) in Culver City, California.

Looking oh so dainty in her Oscar de la Renta dress cut with feminine fullness with a rise-and-fall hemline, I love how the graphic floral print in the most classic duo of tones enlivens this frock.

Opting for just the subtlest pair of Tiffany & Co stud earrings, the actress styled her look with a gold clutch and a pair of PVC Christian Louboutin ‘Justinodo’ sandals which from a distance make her look like she’s perched gold bows on her toes.

Many of you are not so fond of the scraped-back ‘do on Kerry, but on this occasion it’s less severe and elegantly rounds out her look.

Kerry Washington In Prada – 18th Annual Accessories Council ACE Awards

Kerry Washington In Prada - 18th Annual Accessories Council ACE Awards

Kerry Washington attended the 18th Annual Accessories Council ACE Awards held at Cipriani 42nd Street on Monday (November 3) in New York City.

The ‘Scandal’ actress wore a diagonal check Prada dress enriched with light blue crystals which she styled with glitter Louboutin pumps and a purple satin Prada clutch.

If it weren’t for the crystal detailing this would’ve felt very much like a school uniform. Do you agree?

Her efforts with the styling are commendable, but yet they fail to get me excited about this look.

Elle’s 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Elle's 21st Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration

Elle hosted their 21st annual Women in Hollywood celebration held at the Four Seasons Hotel on Monday (October 20) in Beverly Hills, California in association with Calvin Klein, so of course many of the attendees were decked out in the brand’s latest designs.

Kerry Washington: Working a Resort 2015 look which was edgier than we’ve come to expect from the ‘Scandal’ star, she pulled it off with ease. The fold-over neckline sits a lot higher than it does on the runway but this works in her favour, enhancing the matching blue eye makeup. I love the sexy Christian Louboutin ‘Miss Rigidaine’ pumps, but the black and white Thale Blanc clutch feels terribly out of place.

Ashley Madekwe: The actress can pull off just about anything and here she works a Resort 2015 LBD which is inherently minimalist, with the gold-metallic bib, David Yurman jewels and strappy sandals giving the look an edge.

Lizzy Caplan: Serving up a third Resort 2015 look, Lizzy opted for a sportier look, donning a colour-block look styled with grey accessories. The shoes can stay, but that clutch has gotta go. No clutch at all or something considerably smaller would’ve worked for me.

Kerry Washington In Giles, Stella McCartney & Preen – ‘Scandal’ New York Promo Tour

Kerry Washington In Giles, Stella McCartney & Preen - 'Scandal' New York Promo Tour

With Season 4 of ‘Scandal’ airing on ABC on Thursday, Kerry Washington continued her promotional efforts by making a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’, ‘Live With Kelly & Michael’ and ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’.

Good Morning America: Opting for Giles again, the yellow hue has me longing for the early days of spring. Styled with her self-designed Allstate Foundation purple purse, she once again complemented the purse with plum Casadei pumps.

Live With Kelly & Michael: Pretty in pink on this occasion, she wore a Stella McCartney sleeveless dress featuring a modest cut-out detail. You’d be forgiven if you thought this was Cushnie et Ochs, as this dress very much fits their M.O. SJP Collection blue pumps provide a striking contrast, with Jennifer Meyer jewels rounding out her look.

The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon: This was my favourite of the bunch. I adore this playful dotted Preen ‘Liberty’ Resort 2015 dress in patriotic red, white and blue featuring a contrasting back and sleeves and a red waistband. I love how fresh this look feels, especially when given a kick with those gorgeous flame-red Louboutins. A white Thalé Blanc clutch rounded out her look.

Kerry Washington In Prabal Gurung & Giles – Good Morning America & The Limited ‘Scandal’ Collection Launch Event

Kerry Washington In Prabal Gurung & Giles - Good Morning America & The Limited 'Scandal' Collection Launch Event

Kerry Washington was on double duty yesterday (September 23). Not only was she promoting the new season of her hit TV show ‘Scandal’, but she was also promoting the limited edition ‘Scandal’-inspired clothing collection.

‘Good Morning America': Kerry’s morning started bright and early with a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’, where she enlivened the audience with this contemporary offering from Prabal Gurung’s Resort 2015 collection. Used to much simpler styles, this racer front and peplum top paired with a dual-colour circle skirt with a leather flounce is a refreshing break from the norm. I love the silhouette and the simple styling, and despite the fact that there are so many elements to this look, she’s not overwhelmed by it.

The Limited ‘Scandal’ Collection Launch Event: Later that same evening Kerry was working her second peplum look of the day, this time wearing one of her favourite designers, Giles Deacon. I love the strong graphic impact this tie-dye denim-bustier Resort 2015 frock has to offer, but sadly I’m not too enamoured by the navy velvet Roger Vivier ‘Papillon’ bow-accented sandals or the Roger Vivier ‘Pilgrim Carre Orthodoxe’ embellished clutch. Both feel too prissy for this edgy look. A fishtail braid and a subtle selection of jewels completed her look.

Kerry Washington In Mary Katrantzou – #TGIT Premiere Event

Kerry Washington In Mary Katrantzou - #TGIT Premiere Event

Kerry Washington attended the #TGIT Premiere Event hosted by Twitter at the Palihouse Holloway on Saturday (September 20) in West Hollywood, California.

Celebs love Mary Katrantzou for her lively prints; however, the pattern connoisseur opted to mute the print on this occasion in subtle shades of blue, white and grey.

The length, shorter than usual for Kerry, showcases her toned legs, with the fit-and-flare style giving her a figure-flattering silhouette without appearing too twee.

White SJP Collection pumps, a Kotur clutch and Bulgari earrings completed her look.
