Kerry Washington has been pretty outspoken on the issue of domestic violence and abuse, having partnered with the Purple Purse Campaign as an ambassador for three years, so it makes sense that the Scandal star was one of the high-profile speakers invited to bring her message to the very first United State of Women Summit. The White House event was hosted on Tuesday by First Lady Michelle Obama at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
The mom-to-be, who is pregnant with her second child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha, glowed at the summit in a white bump-hugging dress with a simple round neckline and A-line skirt.
The 39-year-old actress, who kept one hand cradling her baby bump for photos, paired the fresh look with minimal jewelry, high-heeled sandals, and a stylish pastel moto jacket with zipper details that she removed to give her speech on how domestic violence victims can gain financial independence from their abusers to about 5,000 attendees, including President Obama and Oprah Winfrey.
A polished ponytail and a light pink lip finished off the chic ensemble.
