Kerry Washington, 38, never fails to impress on the red carpet, and you better believe the same held true at the 88th annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Feb. 28. While she may not have been nominated for an award this year, the Scandal actress didn’t let the snub deter her from making a bold statement in this gladiator-esque Versace gown. Are you a fan of the head-turning look?
Kerry always looks like she’s having fun with fashion and she isn’t afraid to take a risk — it’s what makes her one of my favorite stars on the red carpet! This time around, the actress and newly minted OPI ‘creative ambassador’ looked straight to the runways, opting for a black and white Versace gown that gave us some serious gladiator-chic vibes! On top, the dress featured a sleek, form-fitting black leather bodice that perfectly showcased her gorgeous curves before giving way to a sexy, floor-grazing white skirt. Between it’s curve-hugging silhouette and sexy, thigh-high slit, Kerry clearly pulled out at all of the stops with this look and we’re definitely not hating it.

While her dress may have veered towards the sleek and simple, Kerry made sure to add an extra dose of sparkle when it came to her accessories. This year, the Scandal actress partnered with Harry Winston jewelers, who decked her out in vintage 1963 three row diamond hoop earrings and a 12.02 carat diamond platinum ring. Consider us insanely jealous!
In comparison to Kerry’s 2015 Oscars dress, this is a totally different silhouette for the actress and we can’t get enough of it! As you might recall, last year’s red carpet saw the actress dressed to the nines in a simple yet stunning Miu Miu creation. The peplum bustier top looked so amazing on her fit frame and we loved that she brought on the glam with a gorgeous champagne chiffon skirt that was fully embroidered with glass beads and pearls.
Of course, when it comes to fashion, Kerry is never one disappoint. In addition to her winning Oscars look, the hot mama recently had heads turning when stepped out for the 2016 American Black Film Festival Awards held in Beverly Hills, Calif. As a presenter that evening, Kerry made sure to bring out her fashion A-game by slipping into a striking cobalt blue halter gown by Hugo Boss. Like Kerry herself, the look was simply stunning, and just goes to show that when it comes to style, Kerry’s prowess knows no bounds!
