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.

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.
