Kerry Washington In Prada – ‘Scandal’ Season 3 Premiere

Kerry Washington In Prada - 'Scandal' Season 3 Premiere

Following the PaleyFest event and guest appearance on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’, Kerry Washington attended the premiere of the third season of her hit series ‘Scandal’, held at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City.

The actress took to the red carpet in a custom Prada Fall 2013 ball gown inspired by the Fall 2013 collection.

Her blue gingham design with a ruffled detail lining the placket and a pink waistband is easily my least favourite of her three looks yesterday; this gown makes her look so matronly, like an extra from ‘Little House on the Prairie’.

In fact, I didn’t really like any of her looks yesterday. It was very much a bad day at the office for Kerry in my opinion.

Cream Christian Louboutin ‘Queue De Pie’ pumps, side-swept curly tresses and a nude lip colour completed her look.

    Prada specializes in ugly couture but this is just too much. Was she reliving her Django character? WTF? This is the girl that never got it wrong so I’ll pretend this never happened.

    Possibly worst dressed of the year. There must be something wrong going on at People since they chose her as best dressed and Paltrow as most beautiful.

    This is one of the most tragic looks of the year.

    Oh Kerry, why oh why did they do this to you?

    Upon this post loading and seeing the full view, I immediately screamed and said a word that would get this comment deleted. What even is this.

    TERRIBLE! The worst she has ever looked.

  8. Mandy October 4, 2013 at 00:51 #

    She’s going to be awarded the magnifique to tragique award if she keeps this up.

    I really want to know how she decided to wear this mess. This is SO matronly and also looks a bit cheap. This has to be one of her worst looks.

      Sometimes I wonder when they say a dress is custom, how does that work? If they have a dress commissioned, I’m sure it’s very costly for the designer to make, not to mention all the time they put into it…what happens if the celeb doesn’t like it? Do they have the option not to wear it, or are they stuck?

    She looks about 4’10 in this dress. Brutal

  11. dee October 3, 2013 at 21:26 #

    This is terriblew.

    WTH is this? How do you go from the perfection at Emmy’s to that monstrocity? Celebrities should quit wearing Prada on red carpet. It never translates.

    My grandma had a doll that looked just like that on the shelf in her bathroom. The spare roll of toilet paper went under the skirt.

      LOL – that’s exactly what this looks like

  14. Carrie October 3, 2013 at 20:38 #

    Oh my… Basically speechless, after my comment earlier today that she can do no wrong in my book.

    I actually like The dress. It’s quite different but fun and I think she pulls it off nicely. The only thing I would have changed are the shoes. Since the dress comes across as heavy I would have liked to see her wear sandals to lighten it up.

    Just when you think maybe Prada can make a lovely gown, this horrible creation appears. Poor Kerry, she is so much better than this scary gown. It needs to go away quickly! This is one of those, “When bad fashion happens to good people…”

  17. Lauren October 3, 2013 at 20:27 #

    I will say though, hair and make up is flawless.

    You never expect something like this to happen to someone like Kerry Washington, who tops international best dressed list of Vanity Fair this year. Who thought this was a good idea, the only thing I like here is the hair and make up (don’t know much about it but I like it on her) but everything else is just horrible.

  19. Neli October 3, 2013 at 20:16 #

    No. and again the PUMPS :/

  20. Charlotte October 3, 2013 at 20:01 #

    Worst dress of the year!

  21. Nat39 October 3, 2013 at 19:57 #

    This just looks silly, a costume for a movie.

  22. Daisy October 3, 2013 at 19:56 #

    This is just horrible!

  23. Alina October 3, 2013 at 19:53 #

    What is happening to her?

  24. Moody Crab October 3, 2013 at 19:53 #

    I suspect Kerry Washington is preggers and maybe hiding the tummy. Thats the only explanation for the baggy and less than flattering dresses she has worn the past month or so.

    • Rebecca Z October 3, 2013 at 20:06 #

      Maybe. I liked the J. Mendel dress, but this is really bad.

  25. Melinda October 3, 2013 at 19:51 #

    A hot sizzling “Little House on the Black Prairie” Mess and Kerry Knows it! She does not look happy!

      Exactly. Mothers, don’t let your daughters grow up to wear Prada gowns to premieres. This is a hoe-down, dirty shame.

      • KatieKate October 4, 2013 at 03:58 #

        Hahaha!!! So so true.

        I saw an article on with her talking about her love of fashion and how she curated and styled some windows at Saks in honor of her Scandal premiere which was held there. And then she wore that dress. So odd.

    • Anj October 3, 2013 at 21:59 #

      She looks like she’s a blind woman living in the frontier Wild West. Even in the 1800s, they wouldn’t have worn such an atrocity.

    • Christine October 3, 2013 at 23:47 #

      WTF is right she looks awful!!!!!!! Wtf????
