Scandal star Kerry Washington always looks chic and feminine, as well as totally polished. We love the fact that Washington, who is currently pregnant with her first child, looks amazing without showing too much skin, something that many celebrity moms should take note of (we are looking at you, Kim Kardashian!).
Washington, who wasn’t showing a baby bump when this photo was taken in October, looked amazing before her appearance on The David Letterman Show in this Prabal Gurung Resort 2014 Black Floral Printed Dress, which she accessorized with a simple black clutch, black heels and soft face-framing curls. This designer dress (pictured below) is no longer available to purchase.
You can, however, copy her look by pairing this Halogen Chiffon Dress (on sale for $40, Lyst) with a sheer black cardigan, such as the Sheer Flyaway Cardigan from Love Culture. You can wear this dress with heels, or with black tights and black booties for a chic, edgy look.
Washington also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Nov. 14 (check her out here) and dressed her baby bump in another floral dress. She wore the chic Shoshanna Selma Floral Print Shift Dress (Neiman Marcus, $131 on sale now). She paired this dress with chic nude heels for a polished look.
The 36-year-old star told Lucky magazine that she loves her fashionable character Olivia Pope, but she doesn't always look like her!
"I know that I am not going to look like Olivia when I wake up and go to the bathroom at 4 o’clock in the morning. On the set, it’s somebody’s job to follow me around all day with spackle," she joked.
Off-camera she likes to dress down. "I’m not a formal person. I have a lot of jeans. And I have tons of sneakers, whether they’re the custom Nikes that you can make online or the Isabel Marant wedges. That’s the Bronx in me, for sure."
