Kerry Washington In Giambattista Valli – Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ Presents an Evening with ‘Scandal’

Kerry Washington In Giambattista Valli  - Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' Presents an Evening with 'Scandal'

Joining her ‘Scandal’ co-stars, Kerry Washington attended the show’s Season Two finale event, hosted last week by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood.

The actress, who generally impresses with her sartorial sense, hit a slightly less inspiring note in her Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 dress.

While the blushing hue of the frock was fresh, the shapeless, boatneck silhouette of the design fell flat on this glowing occasion, which saw the cast treat guests to a ‘table read’ of the ‘Scandal’ finale script.

The dress’s wilted bow at the waist and the rumpled, creased fabric didn’t help matters. Kerry may be able to make a burlap sack look good, but this look was really testing the theory.

A nip and a tuck—and an iron—were all this sporty-chic frock needed.

If I ignore the dress, I like the styling here—from the bracelet clutch to the sparkling statement ring to her beauty look. I don’t even mind those rosy-nude platform Lanvin heels, although they did precious little to pump in volume. Her Lanvin ‘Partition’ camera bag was an inspiring choice.

It seems like Kerry may have toned down the red highlights in her pretty long bob, and the blunt bang has made its return. Her makeup was radiant, too. Now, she just needed the outfit to match.

Kerry Washington In Lanvin – ELLE & Tod’s Celebrate Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington In Lanvin - ELLE & Tod's Celebrate Kerry Washington

ELLE & Tod’s held a party at Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria in New York City yesterday to celebrate the fabulousness of Kerry Washington who is their cover girl for June 2013.

Breaking her red streak, the ‘Scandal’ actress opted for a rose-beige hue, wearing a duchess-satin one-shoulder dress from the Lanvin Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

The colour is heavenly on her, and the fabric is so luxe and buttery I just wanna go into my screen and touch it.

Opting for complementary neutral pumps, Kerry styled her look with a Tod’s metallic clutch and gold jewels.

Kerry is posing alongside ELLE’s editor-in-chief, Robbie Myers, who looks very stylish in her Antonio Berardi paneled frock.

You can buy Kerry’s Lanvin dress from Neiman Marcus.

Kerry Washington attended the Entertainment Weekly & ABC 2013 New York Upfront Party held at The General in New York City on Tuesday evening wearing what was her second red leather dress in a row, following her red leather Miss Wu dress which she wore on ‘Good Morning America’.

On this occasion, she wore a Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2013 long-sleeved dress.

Maybe she’s sticking with the red theme to go with her new red-lighted ‘do.

Black Lanvin accessories including a ‘Sea Breeze’ minaudière with gold and wood hardware and black leather pumps completed her look.

Kerry Washington In Miss Wu & The Row – Good Morning America

Kerry Washington In Miss Wu - GMA

If you are glued to ‘Scandal’ like I am, you’ll be sad to know that the season two finale is set to air on Thursday.

Kerry Washington, the star of the hit drama, was out in New York City promoting the show by making a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ earlier today.

The actress matched her look to her newly highlighted ‘do, wearing a red leaf-print jacket from The Row, over an equally bold hued Miss Wu leather shirt dress with a mod-inspired silhouette.

Breaking up the matchy, matchiness of the look she added snakeskin Christian Louboutin pumps and a Jason Wu ‘Daphne’ cross-body bag for a quirky touch.

This is a perfect, youthful, approachable look for a daytime show, but I am still not a fan of those red highlights.

Kerry Washington In Narciso Rodriguez – ‘Peeples’ LA Premiere

Kerry Washington In Narciso Rodriguez - 'Peeples' LA Premiere

Kerry Washington attended the LA premiere for ‘Peeples’, which was held at the ArcLight Hollywood in California on Wednesday evening.

I have never been shy about my affections for Kerry, but on this rare occasion I dislike this look – a lot. I will go on record to say it is probably my least favourite look from her.

The actress wore a surprisingly unflattering Narciso Rodriguez Fall 2013 dress with yet another high-low hemline, which differs slightly from the runway version.

I really dislike the fit around her chest and overall poor quality. Kerry is so much better than this dress suggests.

What I do like is her black-and-white manicure, and her highlighted wavy locks.

Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina’ pumps and a Vince Camuto clutch provided the finishing touches.

As many of you hated her Michael Kors MTV Movie Awards look, is this better or worse?

Kerry Washington In Prabal Gurung – Late Show with David Letterman

Kerry Washington In Prabal Gurung - Late Show with David Letterman

Before taking to the red carpet at the 2013 Met Gala, Kerry Washington was spotted outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York City prior to her guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’, where she promoted her hit TV show ‘Scandal’.

Opting for another look with an amethyst hue, the actress wore a Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2013 dress.

Featuring a deep plunging neckline, a sheer skirt with a lily-printed panel, and a draped top accented with a studded leather belt, Kerry styled her look with white pumps and a matching white Smythson ‘Chameleon’ clutch.

Despite wishing she had posed for this look without the clutch, she continues to be Miss Consistent on the red carpet.

I’m never bored by her looks.

Kerry Washington In Vera Wang – 2013 Met Gala

Kerry Washington In Vera Wang - 2013 Met Gala

Kerry Washington made a sterling effort to infuse some punk in her pretty look while taking to the red carpet for the 2013 Met Gala in New York on Monday.

The ‘Scandal’ actress wore a custom Vera Wang sleeveless V-neck lavender metallic floral print mermaid gown featuring a silk and lace flange detail within the train and chrysanthemum lace peplum accent.

What made this look punk?

I would say the sexy fishnet panel in the plunge, her black leather opera gloves, and the sexy cat-eye makeup.

Is Kerry selling punk to you here?
