Kerry Washington In Sportmax – Women In Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards

Kerry Washington In Sportmax Fall 2014 - Women In Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards

Kerry Washington attended the Women In Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Wednesday (June 11) in Century City, California where she picked up the 2014 Lucy Award for Excellence in Television.

The actress, who was making her first appearance on the red carpet following the birth of her first child, wore a Sportmax Fall 2014 black V-neck cap-sleeved top and splatter-paint skirt with a sheer hemline, omitting the wide belt to show that she’s already back in perfect shape.

While I’m not a fan of the Tupperware-plasticky clutch, the orange Christian Louboutin ‘Geo’ colourful studded toecap pumps and orange lips are the perfect way to style this look.

Great to see her back to her best.

You may remember that Taylor Schilling wore this same skirt to the Webby Awards last month.

Which Was Your Favourite Kerry Washington 2014 Awards Season Look?

Which Was Your Favourite Kerry Washington 2014 Awards Season Look

Kerry Washington was very much part of awards season, both as a presenter at many of the major events, and as a nominee for a SAG Award and Golden Globe Award for her performance in ‘Scandal’.

With so many celebs expecting this year, maternity style is taking centre stage on the red carpet right now.

While Olivia Wilde has been knocking it out of the fashion ballpark, going from fitted in Gucci to bump-concealing in Valentino, Kerry’s style has in some cases been frankly disappointing and not on a par with the fashionista we all know and love.

She started awards season glowing in Balenciaga at the Golden Globe Awards, then gorgeous at the SAG Awards nominees party, but at the main event she left me baffled by her Prada choice. It is one thing to show off your bump proudly, but on this occasion the look was highly unflattering.

An awkward yet pretty Oscar de la Renta dress followed, with a beautiful Thakoon custom look at the NAACP Image Awards, and as pretty as the Jason Wu was at the Oscars, the creases took the sheen off this look.

My favourite, looking back, was the Balenciaga, followed by the Thakoon.

Kerry Washington In Jason Wu – Oscars 2014

Kerry Washington In Jason Wu - Oscars 2014

Kerry Washington, and her baby bump, stunned at the Oscars 2014, hosted Sunday night (March 2) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

The ‘Scandal’ actress wore a custom-designed Jason Wu amethyst satin crepe gown with a side slit and gold tie bar detail at the bodice.

She accessorized with Jennifer Meyer jewels, including double bracelets and petite earrings, along with embellished platinum pumps.

The beautifully draped dress, which floated over her burgeoning curves, suffered from a few unfortunate wrinkles and was a casualty of the wet weather, given its rain-soaked hemline.

Still, Kerry was undeniably glowing, rocking a vampy oxblood lip and a soft, wavy half-up, half-down ’do.

Kerry Washington In Calvin Klein Collection - 7th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon

Kerry Washington attended the 7th annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon held at Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday (February 27) in Beverly Hills, California.

We’ve had a lot to say about her maternity style, but the finally nailed it at this event wearing a flattering Calvin Klein Collection azure-blue, baby-bump concealing dress which draped off one-shoulder.

Keeping accessories to a minimum, she added an Emm Kuo ‘Guggenheim’ oyster shell, black resin and stingray minaudière clutch with blue lapis details to complement her frock; plus Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ black pumps and EF Collection diamond X ring.

Kerry Washington In Thakoon – NAACP Image Awards 2014

Kerry Washington in Thakoon - NAACP Image Awards 2014Kerry Washington’s red-carpet maternity style has been hit-or-miss, so I was eagerly anticipating what statement she’d bring to the NAACP Image Awards 2014, presented by TV One, on Saturday (February 22) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California.

The ‘Scandal’ actress wore a custom Thakoon royal-navy and peach, double-faced-silk gown to clothe her burgeoning baby bump.

The strapless, shawl-sleeve silhouette, coupled with the floor-scraping train, give this look its romantic, mod-fairytale appeal.

Not adding much in the way of accessories, she carried a matching blue envelope clutch by Prada and wore simple diamond studs, topping off the look with a Rapunzel-like, fishtail braid and peachy-pink lip.

If you recall, last year Kerry was dressed in a hyper-memorable Oscar de la Renta gown that stole many of our hearts. I’m not sure the same amount of favour will be laden on this high-sheen dress. But there’s no denying she’s positively glowing.
