Kerry Washington In Marchesa – 2013 Emmy Awards

Kerry Washington In Marchesa - 2013 Emmy Awards

Kerry Washington continued to show off her red-carpet best at the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards tonight at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles, California.

Marchesa’s romantic Spring 2014 collection was just begging for a red carpet, and the ‘Scandal’ actress complied by wearing one of designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman’s frothy, angelic confections.

The creamy-blush gown may have been bordering on over-the-top territory, what with its ribbon-like bodice, a flurry of floral appliques, shimmery beaded embellishment and that frothy long tulle train.

But Kerry managed to make it work, completing the effect with a wavy ‘do, a mauve lip, and a pearlized Edie Parker ‘Jean’ box clutch, all accented by Fred Leighton jewels.

    Sweet, pretty, delicate, can’t say I’m blown away but it works well for Kerry, her presentation is impeccable.

  2. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    The dress looks better on Kerry than it does on the model.The trail plays up the romanticism.

  3. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    She made it work. She looks heavenly.

  4. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    The ribbon wrapped around the bodice makes this less precious, which I like and works well for Kerry. She looks like she’s floating – really beautiful. She makes Marchesa look more refined, and she doesn’t seem overwhelmed by their (sometimes) overdramatic dresses.

  5. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    WOW, best dressed so far

  6. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    Beautiful – hope she wins the Emmy so she gets to go up on stage. That dress needs to be shared!

  7. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    I was expecting so much more from my fave gal. This is a huge letdown for me. The dress is more suitable for a pregnant woman. The color is uninspiring and I don’t care for all those flowers attached to it, it looks rather cheap.

  8. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    I hate Marchesa with a passion, but wow, this is stunning. Kerry really knows how to work a gown.

    This is such a picture perfect look having gorgeous romantic details with satins and flowers. Her always impeccable styling makes it one of the best looks of the night!

  11. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    I am always so excited to see what Kerry chooses. It’s always fresh and unique. Love this.

  12. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    It looked even more beautiful in motion, right? She is stunning

  13. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    YES!!! BDOTW worthy look. She looks so charming. Love!

  14. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    I like this dress better on the photos than on tv. It looked like a bad Chanel dress on tv. Still I expected more from Kerry. It is an ok dress to me.

  15. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    I’m a bit disappointed, but maybe my expectations were too high? I think the dress has lost some of its etherial whimsy with all the extra lining on the skirt. It looks too heavy and the extra tulle cheapens it for me

  16. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    +2 The best!!!

  17. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    +3 she can do no wrong! So in love

  18. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    It’s official. I’ve found my BDOTN, BDOTW and maybe even potential BDOTY. I know it’s rash, but this dress is such a dream! It’s girly and doll-like but not to the point it’s twee or too literal. Elegant yet youthful at the same time. The styling is perfection.

  19. Guest April 15, 2019 at 1:21 am #

    She looks ethereal

  20. Elayne September 25, 2013 at 12:53 am #

    FLOTUS’ Inaugural dress inspired, yes?

  21. msd September 23, 2013 at 4:03 pm #

    This does look better on her than the model but it’s still not very good. Marchesa always looks a bit cheap.

    Perfect

  23. The Dame Intl September 23, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

    I’m not usually a fan of floral but this dress is beautiful and looks great on Kerry. The white belt straps give it a much need edge.

  24. Neli September 23, 2013 at 11:39 am #

    Not my fav but she looks very pretty!

  25. Haidi September 23, 2013 at 11:25 am #

    Swooning. Utterly magical, she looks like an ethereal storybook princess.

  26. Dorothy September 23, 2013 at 10:21 am #

    Sorry, but no. This looks is totally flat and boring for me.
    If she wanted Marchesa, she would have looked breathtaking in the look book version of Alyson Hannigan’s dress. Now that would have been a real knockout.

  27. Alicat September 23, 2013 at 9:34 am #

    Such a gorgeous dress. The detailing is exquisite. The stuff of fantasies…

  28. Fanny September 23, 2013 at 9:22 am #

    I would’ve liked slicked back hair and a gold box clutch for this dress, as it is styled now it’s a bit too cutie-cute for me…

  29. amy September 23, 2013 at 9:07 am #

    Kerry wears it better than the model for sure

  30. Alex September 23, 2013 at 8:33 am #

    I wanted to love it but I don’t. Lately I really don’t feel Marchesa designs. I can’t remember the last look from the ladies that I really loved.

    Kerry looks beautiful but sadly I still expected more.

    • AG September 23, 2013 at 8:49 am #

      I seem to keep being the next commenter after you and I’m finding myself agreeing with all of your comments haha! I also wanted to love this as I usually am a fan of what Kerry wears. But there’s something that’s off. It’s a little bit too sweet I think. Disappointed she wore Marchesa.

      • Alex September 23, 2013 at 11:41 am #

        High five to have the same taste in fashion! 🙂

    • adrian September 23, 2013 at 6:47 pm #

      Marchesa is needs to edit. Don’t love this at all.

  31. kane September 23, 2013 at 7:16 am #

    YES! At last, the Kerry I love and I have been missing so dearly is back!

  32. Alina September 23, 2013 at 5:55 am #

    The more I look at it, the more I like it. It’s dreamy!

    Yay! Someone finally hit a homerun! Leave it to Kerry. I love this on her so much more than on the model. She is bringing it to life with so much natural grace and beauty. BDOTN, easily.

  34. Molly September 23, 2013 at 4:44 am #

      Agreed.

  45. EmmaWoodhouse September 23, 2013 at 2:06 am #

    I’m going to pretend that none of it is sheer, because I can’t tell, but this is possibly my favorite of the night! The details are a dream! I love it <3

  46. Sophy September 23, 2013 at 2:02 am #
