Kerry Washington In Balenciaga – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Kerry Washington In Balenciaga - 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Kerry Washington attended the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21), hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

The ‘Scandal’ actress opted for an LBD, hers from the Balenciaga Spring 2015 collection.

Impeccably sleek, but also rather austere, the design’s geometric lines and tonal embellishment at the neckline contributed a subtle yet powerful edge to the look.

Glittery black Manolo Blahnik pumps and Tiffany & Co. jewels finished the statement with the slightest touch of sparkle. A brightly coloured lip would have even further enhanced the effect.

Seriously chic or too serious?

Alfre Woodard’s Oscar’s Sistahs Soiree

Alfre Woodard's Oscar's Sistahs Soiree
Many stars attended Alfre Woodard’s Oscar’s Sistahs Soiree by White Diamond Lustre, Elizabeth Taylor at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Wednesday (February 18) in Beverly Hills, California, where they showed off a range of different dress codes at the event—from casual to cocktail snazzy.

Kerry Washington
: The ‘Scandal’ actress brought a touch of spring to the soiree in her Sophia Kah look featuring a floral skirt with contrast paneling. I love the mix of the watercolour-inspired print with the bolder edge of the midnight-blue top and burnt-orange colour-blocked hem. Elegant waves and an oxblood lip balanced the look.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw
: The star’s bright smile brought vibrancy to this riff on the LBD. The Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2015 dress with embroidered neckline and sheer chiffon detailing was effortlessly chic, with Kwiat jewels elevating the look with a subtle sparkle.

Zoe Saldana: Looking radiant in ruffles, Zoe worked this deep blue Lanvin dress to her advantage. The black belting added the bit of figure-defining structure that the design required, with a spirited punch courtesy of the contrast dotted Kurt Geiger ‘Bond’ pumps and her beautiful red lip.

Kerry Washington In Adam Lippes – SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration

Kerry Washington In Adam Lippes - SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration

Kerry Washington attended the SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration held at Rockefeller Plaza on Sunday (February 15) in New York City.

Appearing to have shaken off the cobwebs, the ‘Scandal’ star looks to be firmly back on track wearing an Adam Lippes Pre-Fall 2015 dress that is an elevated take on tuxedo dressing.

Short, sexy and enhanced by the decorative black buttons, the look was styled with Jimmy Choo pumps and a peek-a-boo lace bra.

Never normally one to advocate going braless, I feel the look would’ve been much improved without it. Going for a deep plunging neckline would’ve been sexier.

Kerry Washington In Zuhair Murad – 2015 NAACP Image Awards

Kerry Washington In Zuhair Murad - 2015 NAACP Image Awards
Kerry Washington attended the 2015 NAACP Image Awards, hosted at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Friday (February 6).

The ‘Scandal’ star and nominee was also among the ravishing ladies-in-red at the event. Her Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 gown had me at hello, not just for the allure of its colour but also for the sultry-sweet silhouette.

The relaxed shaping of the dress in combination with its lacy, semi-sheer broderie anglaise had something of a boho-style beauty, heightened by Kerry’s loose waves and baby-pink lip.

Complementing the look were Cathy Waterman jewels, red python Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps, and the flash of a silver Salvatore Ferragamo clutch.

Kerry Washington In Dolce & Gabbana – The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal Spring Shopping Event

Kerry Washington In Dolce & Gabbana - The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal Spring Shopping Event

Kerry Washington hosted The Limited Collection Inspired by Scandal Spring Shopping Event on Tuesday (February 3) in Glendale, California.

Curiously, once again, she opted not to wear the collection, instead selecting a look from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2015 collection.

I have to say I adore the look, white pumps with the polka dot heel from Sophia Webster included.

The polka-dot frock with trumpet cuffs fills me with the joys of spring, plus the look is so very pretty with the monochrome style full-on, and frilly and feminine especially when styled with a Roger Vivier ‘Love’ and heart-motif shoulder bag and bold red lip.

As Kerry’s style has been ‘meh’ at best recently, I’m delighted to see her back to her very best here.

You can buy Kerry’s Dolce & Gabbana Polka Dot Dress from
Saks.com, Luisa via Roma US, Luisa via Roma Europe and Luisa via Roma UK.

Kerry Washington In Prabal Gurung – 2015 Producers Guild Awards

Kerry Washington In Prabal Gurung - 2015 Producers Guild Awards

Kerry Washington attended the 2015 Producers Guild Awards held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Saturday (January 24) in Los Angeles, California.

It’s been a while, a very long while, since I liked anything worn by Kerry on the red carpet.

This Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2015 gown rendered in a blush tulip printed jacquard skirt and simple black satin bodice sees an attempt to get back on track.

Simple and elegant, the look was styled with a studded Tod’s clutch, Martin Katz rings, and Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalace’ pumps.

Is this an improvement over the Globes, or are you still hankering for Kerry’s 2012/2013 red carpet style? I know I am.
