Celebrity Style Watch: Kerry Washington

Perhaps best known as the fierce and fashionable Olivia Pope on Scandal, Kerry Washington has had quite an impressive career. Her other films include hits Ray, Django Unchained, Fantastic Four, and many more.

Before acting, Kerry graduated from George Washington University with a double major in anthropology and sociology. More recently, Kerry was voted as one of the “Most Influential People in the World” by Time Magazine.

In addition to her fabulous style, Kerry was appointed by President Barack Obama to the President’s Committee of the Arts and Humanities and is an active member of V-day, which helps end violence among girls and women.

She is currently married to NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha and together they have a daughter named Isabelle and a son named Caleb. Kerry is smart, beautiful, kind-hearted, and fashionable—now that’s a killer combination!

Kerry has held her own when it comes to fashion, and that has landed her on the CGS Celebrity Style Watch. Check out our favorite red carpet and street style looks below.

Red Carpet

Kerry is seen here at the Django Unchained premiere in Paris, France. Kerry looks amazing in a corset-style floral Rochas gown.

Kerry looks stunning in this beaded Ralph Lauren Collection silk gown at the Evening with Ralph Lauren hosted by Oprah Winfrey in 2011. Sewn into the neckline of the dress is a metal and Swarovski crystal beaded chain. Kerry’s jeweled clutch and simple diamond bracelet add the perfect accents to the dress. She finishes the look off with a beautiful deep red lip that pops!

Holding her baby bump, Kerry glows beautifully in this stunning Jason Wu silk gown. Kerry’s deep burgundy lip flawlessly compliments the color of her dress.
