Kerry Washington In Balenciaga – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Kerry Washington In Balenciaga - 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Kerry Washington was undeniably glowing—for more reason than one—on the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, hosted at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday night (January 12).

The pregnant ‘Scandal’ star and best actress nominee showed off her baby bump, which she called ‘her little accessory,’ in a custom Balenciaga pale green celadon gown, accented with an embellished brooch at the bodice.

Fitted, but not overly clingy with a near peplum-like draped detail, this was a classic way to show off her new curves—we’d expect nothing less from Kerry.

Fred Leighton jewels, including chandelier earrings, along with simple, side-parted loose waves, a soft smokey eye and glossy nude lip, all paired nicely with the subtle radiance here.

The white Balenciaga minaudière clutch and Casadei sandals, on the other hand, felt a bit too stark for my taste.

Who Wore J. Mendel Better…Amber Heard or Kerry Washington?

Who Wore J Mendel Better Amber Heard or Kerry Washington

Back in August Amber Heard wore a summery white J. Mendel dress featuring sheer inserts to the press conference for ‘Paranoia’.

She styled her pretty dress with just nude pumps and a simple ponytail.

Kerry Washington wore the same dress a few months later for PaleyFest’s ‘She’s Making Media’ panel held in her honour.

I wasn’t fond of the length of the frock on Kerry, nor of her choice of accessories, especially that Hunting Season clutch, so Amber wins for me.

Kerry Washington In Erdem - Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

Back on Halloween night, Kerry Washington made a guest appearance on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ to promote her hit TV show ‘Scandal’.

Some of you were keen to find out who she wore, so I am delighted to share that her look was from Erdem’s Spring 2014 collection.

The black-and-white floral-embroidered two-piece textured look featuring a sleeveless top and a skirt with a sheer overlay and banded hemline was styled with black Louboutins and a fun pair of bunny ears.

Maternity chic or ghoulish?

Kerry Washington In Shoshanna – The Elle DeGeneres Show

Kerry Washington In Shoshanna - The Elle DeGeneres Show

Kerry Washington made a guest appearance on ‘The Elle DeGeneres Show’ on Thursday, where she shared how exciting it is to be featured on so many magazine covers, saying that her mother is in charge of archiving all of them.

She dressed her growing baby bump wearing a Shoshanna ‘Selma’ floral-print shift dress in spring-like blue hues, which she styled with nude Christian Louboutin pumps, her ever-present Movado watch and a gold Dana Rebecca Designs cuff.

I love that her style is firmly back to where it was prior to the announcement of her pregnancy. I’m thankfully starting to forget that icky period.

You can buy Kerry’s Shoshanna ‘Selma’ Floral-Print Shift Dress on sale at Neiman Marcus.

Kerry Washington for Lucky December 2013

kerry_washington_lucky_magazine_2013

Kerry Washington snags her seventh cover of the year following her Ebony (March 2013), Elle (June 2013), Vanity Fair (August 2013), Glamour (October 2013), Flare (October 2013) and Essence (November 2013) covers, now appearing on the cover of the December/January issue of Lucky magazine.

Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, the ‘Scandal’ actress looks radiant and incredibly happy wearing a Christian Dior Resort 2014 frock.

While much ado has been made about the cover and the excessive photoshopping of the beloved star, Kerry herself appears to have no issues with it, proudly making it her avatar for her twitter account.
In the mag she talks about the dangers of the media, living low-key and working in Hollywood.

Here are some extracts from the mag, which hits newsstands November 19.

On the dangers of the media: “Even for me, I think it’s a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show. I know that I am not going to look like [‘Scandal’ character] Olivia when I wake up and go to the bathroom at 4 o’clock in the morning. On the set, it’s somebody’s job to follow me around all day with spackle.”

On living low-key: “I can run into Madewell and J.Crew and be good for a few months. I’m not a formal person. I have a lot of jeans. And I have tons of sneakers, whether they’re the custom Nikes that you can make online or the Isabel Marant wedges. That’s the Bronx in me, for sure.”

On working in Hollywood: “It’s a miracle to even work in this industry. I didn’t become an actress to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story.”

On keeping it real: “People always come up to me and say, ‘Oh, I want Olivia’s closet,’ and I’m like, ‘Me too!’ Even for me, I think it’s a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show.”

Kerry Washington In Victoria, Victoria Beckham – Saturday Night Live

Kerry Washington In Victoria, Victoria Beckham - Saturday Night Live

Kerry Washington was the guest host of ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend, and she wasted no time helping to poke fun at the diversity issue on the sketch comedy programme, playing several famous women including Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey.

Following her promo tour for ‘Scandal’, we found ourselves in unfamiliar territory – disliking her looks; but following the announcement of her pregnancy last week everything fell into place.

Now, Kerry is in a position to celebrate her bump rather than hiding it so she’s back on track, showcasing her maternity style wearing a sweet Victoria, Victoria Beckham Spring 2014 long-sleeved patterned frock with a flared pleated skirt.

I love the raspberry lip colour here. It’s not only complementary to her dress, but also enhances her radiant glow.

2014 is going to be a very interesting time for maternity style, with two of our favourite stars, Olivia and Kerry, working the red carpet with their baby bumps.
