Kerry Washington was on double duty yesterday (September 23). Not only was she promoting the new season of her hit TV show ‘Scandal’, but she was also promoting the limited edition ‘Scandal’-inspired clothing collection.
‘Good Morning America’: Kerry’s morning started bright and early with a guest appearance on ‘Good Morning America’, where she enlivened the audience with this contemporary offering from Prabal Gurung’s Resort 2015 collection. Used to much simpler styles, this racer front and peplum top paired with a dual-colour circle skirt with a leather flounce is a refreshing break from the norm. I love the silhouette and the simple styling, and despite the fact that there are so many elements to this look, she’s not overwhelmed by it.
The Limited ‘Scandal’ Collection Launch Event: Later that same evening Kerry was working her second peplum look of the day, this time wearing one of her favourite designers, Giles Deacon. I love the strong graphic impact this tie-dye denim-bustier Resort 2015 frock has to offer, but sadly I’m not too enamoured by the navy velvet Roger Vivier ‘Papillon’ bow-accented sandals or the Roger Vivier ‘Pilgrim Carre Orthodoxe’ embellished clutch. Both feel too prissy for this edgy look. A fishtail braid and a subtle selection of jewels completed her look.
