Kerry Washington is no stranger to shutting down the red carpet, but when we say we were stunned by her Golden Globes look, we. were. stunned.

The actress, who is presenting at tonight's show, arrived in a revealing black look from Altuzarra's Pre-Fall 2020 collection. The two-piece set consisted of a knotted chain connected to a skirt with a jacket styled on top.

"It’s really f*cking incredible," Law Roach, who put together the look, told us prior to Washington walking the red carpet. "It’s so modern, and it speaks to how cool Kerry is. It’s so badass."

According to Roach, it took 20 dresses to find the one — and clearly, it was worth all that effort.

"it's just me, wanting to take risks, wanting to do something new, wanting [the look] feel how I think my girls will feel on the inside." 

The Image Architecht added that he kept the jewelry simple, accessorizing Washington's revealing set with stackable rings and a small pair of diamond earrings.

"I’m just excited to work with Kerry," he revealed, noting that it's the first official time he's working with the actress. "It’s a big one, so you get a little bit nervous, you know?"
