Kerry Washington In Stella McCartney – Project Runway Spring 2014 Fashion Show

Kerry Washington In Stella McCartney - Project Runway Spring 2014 Fashion Show

Kerry Washington took her front-row seat alongside the Project Runway judges for the designers’ Spring 2014 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week held at The Theatre at Lincoln Center in New York City earlier today.

Looking as lovely as ever, the ‘Scandal’ actress wore her second look from the Stella McCartney Resort 2014 collection, selecting a blush-coloured floral-print frock with a square-cut plunge and gathered waist.

Considering the rouge floral print, she styled her look with red leather Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps, opting to go in the other direction when it came to the lip colour by applying a glossy flesh colour with a dark lip liner.

Kohl-rimmed eyes and a wavy faux bob completed her dainty look.

Kerry Washington for Glamour US October 2013

Kerry Washington’s Glamour October Issue Cover-Shoot

I was so excited to see Kerry Washington – my favourite gal – looking beautiful on the cover of the October 2013 issue of Glamour US.

She was shot for the cover by Peggy Sirota wearing the same Dior Resort 2014 dress we’ve seen on Natalie Portman. The Emmy-nominated actress can be seen wearing very Olivia Pope-esque pieces from Dolce & Gabbana, yet more Dior and Louis Vuitton.

Kerry had much to talk about with the mag, what with her keeping her relationship with Nnamdi Asomugha a secret until they announced they were married, her hit show ‘Scandal’, which has all of America – and me here in London – hooked, and how she keeps her personal life private.

You can pick up this October issue when it hits newsstands September 10, or download the digital issue right now.

On her secret marriage to Nnamdi Asomugha: “I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you. But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold. I don’t want to sound smug about it… but the point is to do what’s best for me. I have girlfriends in this business who talk about their personal lives, and it works for them, and I love it. But not for me.”

On what is in Olivia Pope’s handbag: “Usually folders, pens, the phone on the show, and often a bottle of water to add a nice weight to the bag. And some panties in one episode!”

On keeping her personal life private: “I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me to talk about my personal life. I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine. But I couldn’t just turn around and say, ‘I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.’ So I just thought, ‘OK, no more.’”

Kerry Washington In Stella McCartney – 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Kerry Washington In Stella McCartney - 2013 Teen Choice Awards

Kerry Washington took to the red carpet at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards held at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California on Sunday as one of the guest presenters.

The ‘Scandal’ actress becomes the latest actress to fall for the charms of the Stella McCartney Resort 2014 collection.

She wore a long-sleeved pale-pink mini dress with embroidered hearts, lips, and matchsticks and floral crystal details.

Adding yet more dazzle to her look, she wore Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Strass’ pumps with her wedding ring.

Mimicking the lip print on her dress, Kerry opted for a bright-red lip colour with a pink eye shadow completing her look.

I love that the actress continues to keep her red carpet look versatile and interesting.

Kerry Washington In Giambattista Valli – Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour Party

Kerry Washington In Giambattista Valli - Television Critics Association's Summer Press Tour Party

Kerry Washington attended the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour party held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California on Sunday.

The actress opted to wear one of her favourite designers, Giambattista Valli, selecting a pretty red-and-white frock with a paisley-print top and scribbled-print pleated skirt.

Besides her wedding ring, the ‘Scandal’ actress styled her halter dress with taupe Christian Louboutin pumps (this is the one time I am wishing she had opted for the white Christian Louboutin ‘Batignolles’ pumps), a grey Nancy Gonzalez clutch and gold earrings.

With her hair swept up into a high bun, she completed her sophisticated look with a red lip colour to complement her dress.

Who Wore Lanvin Better…Kerry Washington or Pace Wu?

WWIB Lanvin

Kerry Washington attended the Elle and Tod’s event held in her honour back in June wearing a Lanvin one-shoulder duchess satin dress with oversized ruffles on the shoulder.

The buttery-soft rose-beige dress was styled with a gold studded Tod’s clutch, butterscotch Louboutin pumps and a simple updo.

Sporting a cropped wig, Pace Wu wore the same dress while attending the ‘Lancôme Show by Alber Elbaz’ party during Paris Couture fashion week.

The Asian beauty who had been taking the front row by storm all week styled her look with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Cosmic’ pumps and a wooden Lanvin clutch.

It took a lot of toing and froing, but in the end I went with Kerry, mostly because I prefer her clutch. Other than that it was impossible to separate the two as both looked amazing in this frock.

You can buy their Lanvin dress from Neiman Marcus and  Nordstrom.
