InStyle September 2016 cover beauty Kerry Washington was, without a doubt, one of the best dressed leading ladies at this year’s Emmy Awards. Although the Scandal actress pretty much always makes smart sartorial choices for the red carpet, her all-black Brandon Maxwell design knocked it out of the park Sunday evening.

The strapless piece, which featured strategic cutouts along with a billowing cape, was tailored to fit to every inch of Washington’s growing baby bump. Maxwell's attention to detail is obvious with one look at the actress, but one hidden element also gave a nod to the dress's bespoke origins: a label found on the underside.

The beloved 39-year-old actress took to Instagram after the awards show to offer a glimpse at the personalized stitching featuring her name on the inside of the dress. “Glorious night. #Emmys Thank you @BrandonMaxwell,” she wrote as the caption to the shot and saluted the designer for his 32nd year around the sun. "And happy birthday."

Glorious night. #Emmys Thank you @brandonmaxwell 🙏🏾 And Happy Birthday.
