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.

Scarlett Johansson In Michael Kors – ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Paris Premiere

Scarlett Johansson In Michael Kors  -  'Captain America The Winter Soldier' Paris PremiereScarlett Johansson virtually mirrored the red carpet, as she attended the ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Paris premiere, held on Monday (March 17) at Le Grand Rex in France.

The actress made a splash in a scarlet-hued Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2014 menswear-inspired ensemble, camouflaging her baby bump in a structured blazer with black lapels, a loose black top and slim-fitting, cropped pants.

But despite the mannish overtones, the look was still fiery hot, with the bold colour dominating the scene here.

A few punchy accessories delivered even more attitude, with her lippy clutch, shiny silver Schutz ‘Shen’ metallic sandals and Van Cleef & Arpels diamond necklace and earrings demanding their own brand of attention.

A loosely rolled, side-parted updo and an intense brush of purple eye shadow may have not been my first beauty choices. But they did provide an interesting contrast to the look, where a smoky eye and sleek locks would have been far more expected.

Maggie Grace In A.L.C. – PaleyFest 2014 Honouring ‘Lost’ 10th Anniversary Reunion

Maggie Grace In ALC - PaleyFest 2014 Honouring 'Lost' 10th Anniversary Reunion

Maggie Grace attended The Paley Center for Media’s PaleyFest 2014 Honouring ‘Lost’ 10th Anniversary Reunion held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (March 16) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore an eclectic look featuring many interesting elements, colours and textures.

I especially love the blue silk top and sequin blue-black-and-silver shorts by A.L.C., but the Burak Uyan tri-colour geometric platform sandals – as much as I love her for stepping away from the normal black or nude pumps – don’t really work with the look for me.

Additional styling including a silver Soixante Neuf cuff, Dana Schneider pendant necklace, Carly Margolis rings and black clutch provided the finishing touches.

Would you have preferred it if Maggie had stripped back the accessories?

The biggest shocker for me is that it has been 10 years since ‘Lost’ first aired. Where did that time go?

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Hobbs – St Patrick’s Day Parade

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge In Hobbs -  St Patrick's Day Parade

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the St Patrick’s Day parade at Mons Barracks on Monday (March 17) in Aldershot, England with Prince William, Duke of Cambridge to visit the 1st Battalion Irish Guards to present the traditional sprigs of shamrocks to the officers and guardsmen of the regiment.

They say it’s not easy wearing green, but Catherine, aka Kate Middleton, stepped out donning the colour from head to toe.

Taking a break from the Emilia Wickstead coat she’s worn to this event for the past two years, Catherine chose the pine-green Hobbs ‘Persephone’ double-breasted trench on this occasion.

She styled the look with a Gina Foster hat, Cartier shamrock brooch, green suede pumps and a green clutch.

Should she have broken up the green with brown perhaps, like she did in 2012, or does this head-to-toe showing work for you?

I have to say it is the best of the three and even deserves a spot on the BDOTW list.
