Kerry Washington, the lead actress in the ABC drama Scandal, continues to surprise her fans with her recent success and celebrations.
In a matter of 2 months, Kerry turned newlywed, marrying San Francisco 49ers cornerback, Nnamdi Asomugha and became the second black woman to receive a Primetime Emmy nomination.
But despite her recent celebrations, Kerry stays humble about her career and remains silent about her personal life. Instead, she simply states that she is “blessed in all areas of my life.”
However, when stepping out onto the red carpet Kerry is a whole a different story. With impeccable style and effortless elegance, Kerry somehow manages to make cutting-edge trends appear totally wearable.
Earlier this year, for the 2013 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theater, Kerry wore Miu Miu. A deep rose hued bandeau dress complete with train and heavily embellished Swarvoski crystal corset, was accessories with classic Louboutins, a mini Prada clutch, Chopard earrings and Fred Leighton rings.
Next up, for the 2013 Screen Actors red carpet event, Kerry trialled a subtle take on the peplum trend, with this beautifully embellished white Rodarte dress. A sleek, side-parted ponytail, smoky eyes and flawless skin completed the look.
And finally, our favourite. A customised Vera Wang dress for this year’s Met Gala. There’s a hint of peplum, lace, metallics and floral print. And yet somehow despite the fully loaded fashion prowess, Washington pulls this off with aplomb. Thanks to a super sleek, slicked back and simple hair style and an effortless smoky eye. Stunning.
