Kerry Washington may play a professional fixer on Scandal, but Olivia Pope would have nothing to repair when it comes to the actress's IRL red carpet style. In this year alone, the newly minted mother of two went from strapping on a neon yellow harness at the 2016 Oscars after-party to nailing maternity style at the Emmys in a custom cut-out Brandon Maxwell design that hugged her growing bump in all the right areas.
Her sartorial range has landed her a No. 8 spot on our top 50 Celebrity Best Dressed list in Hollywood. Take a look at her best five looks from 2016 in the video above, and find out who else made the cut.
[MUSIC] For someone who professes to be no expert in fashion, Kerry Washington sure seems to get it right every time. Even while pregnant this year with her second child, she still ruled the red carpet. Kerry, in a neon yellow harness, the star took a fashion risk, and it paid off She slipped into the sexy white beaded [UNKNOWN] Versace gown for the Oscar's after party. Her Oscar's red carpet look deserves a mention too. She found edge in a custom [UNKNOWN] Versace gown that featured a bolded leather bodice. Her Emmy's look was just as good. The expected star was absolutely radiant in a custom Brandon Maxwell design with tiny cutout. The pale shade, the fitted boddess, the girly teared ruffles. Those are just a few of the reasons why we love Washington's hand knitted lace Ulyana Sergeenko couture dress that she wore to the Paleyfest Los Angeles presentation of Scandal. Washington is definitely not a wallflower. One example, her love of bold florals, which you can see here. She wore a peplum textured floral dress by Erdem to a Movado dinner in Los Angeles. [MUSIC]
