We're obsessed!

Kerry Washington and Katie Holmes' beautiful celebrity styles made us do a double take this week! We're telling you why in this week's installment of Friday's Fashion Obsessions.

Kerry Washington at Variety's 5th Annual Power Of Women Event

It's been a big week for Kerry Washington! The Scandal star has been promoting the show's new season like crazy, and we've been following her fashion eagerly all the while. Here, Kerry worked the carpet in a gold and black dress at Variety's 5th Annual Power Of Women Event.

Confession: I get kind of weak in the knees whenever I see polka dots. Black and white is the typical polka dot combo, but I love how Kerry's dress combines eye-catching metallic gold dots in a large print with a classic black background. Another thing I love? Her neutral accessories. A tan clutch, some shiny bangles and embellished pumps top off the look in a classy way.

The final verdict? Kerry's look is simply adorable, and I love how versatile it is. You could dress it up for a holiday party (they're not that far away!) or dress it down with casual pumps and a cool jacket. Cute, no?

Katie Holmes at New York premiere of Gravity

We think Suri would be proud of her momma! Katie Holmes showed up to the New York City premiere of Gravity looking pretty in pink in a pleated sleeveless dress her daughter will surely inherit one day. Let's discuss its merits!

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and that gives us ladies one more excuse to rock the pink look. Katie looked sweet and flirty in this fun dress, simple ponytail and nude pumps. She also kept her makeup pretty low key, opting for glowing skin and minimal makeup. The result? An easy, breezy look.

The final verdict? Sometimes less really is more! Katie looks pretty without trying too hard and maintains her girl-next-door appeal quite nicely. One slight critique, though: I might have recommended a bit more eye makeup.
