WERQ: Kerry Washington in Giles

Posted on January 11, 2013

She’s been having some fun and taking some risks with her Django poledance fashion, but this is just pure, straight up, old school gorgeous:

    WERQ, indeed!  Gorgeous.

  • Sobaika

    WERQ!!! She needs to be in an Oscar-contender every year. She’s been fabulous on the red carpet this season.

  • Janet B


  • Cathy S

    It’s a Western and she’s wearing a dress with a horse on it. I love that. You go!

    • Wow I didn’t even notice the horse at first, but it makes it that much more awesome (and appropriate for her movie)!

    • TonyGo

       Is that a Pegasus print?  Fab-u-lous.

    • Pennymac

       Just now noticed the horse! Awesomeness!

  • PastryGoddess

    I want that lip color sooooo badly

    • Sobaika

      Try MAC’s Soulfully Rich, Chanel’s Maniac, or an OCC Lip Tar in Black Dahlia.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Oh, yeah. That’s how it works, lady star!

  • The dress! Her hair! The makeup! I love everything.

  • mjude

    best for her so far. WERQ

  • jw_ny

    yes..fabulous indeed! 

    I would have preferred a metallic or sparkly shoe, but it’s probably too minor a point to have even mentioned here…

    • poggi

       I thought so too, but then I love the metallic clutch and seeing the red sole of the shoe is kind of great.

  • jilly_d

    FACE. I am lurving the berry lip colors these ladystars are working lately. Great micro-trend.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Beautiful dress! I also enjoy the person in the audience holding the Samuel L. Jackson sign (The one and only Nick Fury..lol!)

  • Phenomenal. And I wish I could pull off that lipstick, but I’d end up looking like I made out with a Sprite. She’s so beautiful. 

  • StephanieLovesTLo

    Serving it up and shutting it down.


  • teensmom99


  • Imasewsure

    Wow love it from head to toe… beautiful!!

  • MilaXX

    Now this is how I like to see Kerry. Gorgeous!

  • kipper

    Wow … 

    • kipper

      seriously, this is how it is done

  • Better than the model. Serving Diahann Carroll FIERCENESS.

  • Gorgeous!

  • Damn. Is there a rating above WERQ?

  • YolandaHawkins

    STUNNING! No Scandal here! 

  • Gorgeous. I love everything about this look. Miss Kerry has been on a roll the last couple of days. 

  • too long in the front. not a werq for me.

  • Killa!

  • lexilexi

    TWO WERQs in one day!!  Both gorgeous.  Both awesome.  Both deserving!

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    She looks lovely but having a big horse printed on your dress is just a little too weird for me.

  • Is just me or the face feel like Imans in the late 80’s?

  • SugarSnap108

    Holy hell, she looks gorgeous.  She makes the runway model look silly (and what does that model have on her feet? Bowling shoes?)

  • I saw this on Tumblr last night and literally gasped out loud. SO GORGEOUS. 

  • Kathy_Marlow

    THIS is how she should look on the red carpet…ALWAYS…WERQ GURL!

  • Jennifer Coleman

    Great dress, hair, makeup & shoes. Well done! Back to the Kerry we know & love.

  • nannypoo

    Beautiful fabric. I love everything about this.

  • WERQ with a capital ‘W’! She looks stunning! Definitely a red carpet hit!

  • aquamarine17

    perfection, down to the white nails and shoes. totally beautiful. love it. the hair is special and works so well. thanks, guys!

  • prettybigkitty


  • SewingSiren


  • kimmeister

    Does she have a “mood” clutch?  It keeps changing colors!

  • TheLaurenJean

    That is the most perfect lip color ever on her. I want it. Except on me, it would look like I had tried to be a vampire. 

  • poggi

    She looks amazing.

  • SorayaS

    Stunning!! Top to toe perfection. I just wish she would relax her face a bit- why is she pursing her lips like that? 

  • ojosazules

    A glamorous horse dress! Very cool.

  • Call me Bee

    Beautiful, and she is doing her movie star posing.  Good for her! 

  • LOVE. 

  • Jessi03

    “I’m on a horse.” ETA: Seriously though, she looks fabulous.

  • She’s the kinda girl you marry. Stunning!

  • guest2visits

    So fun and so perfect… love it!

  • crash1212

    Wow. You can tell she feels gorgeous in this dress. And she’s right.

  • E. D.

    WERQ.  I normally hate bubble hems, but this all looks good.

  • Artis Diggins

    Really great- she should consider classic Dior ‘New Look’ stuff. The shape would be perfection on her…

  • LCTerrill

    Agreed. This is what I wear in my Downton-hunting-scene dream sequences…

    Pamuk not included. 😉

  • M

    Werq. It. Out. Guurll! She is so goegeous! Love her!

  • quiltrx

    WOW.  What a great, unique gown.  The neckline is SO Audrey, and very flattering to Ms. Kerry.  And her hairstyle really works nicely with the gown.

    (and an aside…I would cut several bitches for the model’s hair, in my own brown shade, of course.)

  • Holy cow, this is perfection!! 

  • gabbilevy

    This, ladies and gentlemen, is why Olivia Pope wears so much white. Everything about this is magnificent.

  • frannyprof

    I am obsessed with that dress. Perfection.


  • siena Mystic

    The dress is lovely and she looks great, but I admit to saying, out loud, “Holy shit, that’s a horse.”

  • She looks great! And I was struck when I saw “Django Unchained” by just what a gorgeous woman she is. She has a wonderful face. This look suits her wonderfully. 

  • decormaven


  • I’ve always thought that she is gorgeous, but this is her best look ever.

  • Amy

    I knew she could do it! LOVE!!

  • alyce1213

    Breathtaking dress.  Maybe she should have saved this one for the Oscars.

  • Laylalola

    There’s something freaky about the horse print ~~

    • barbarienne

       I was thinking the same thing, but then I decided that since Django is a western, it has a thematic appropriateness.

  • DominoEstella


  • LambeeBaby

    Hot DAMN! Waaaaaaaaaayyy better than the model.

  • julnyes

    Love everything except the hair.

  • Don Hackett

    out of this world.  it was the opposite of scroll down fug, whatever that is.  at the top i was like ho-hum another white dress.  but then the beautiful shape of that full skirt, and the subtle gray prints and overlays.  outstanding.  so glad she didn’t go for the silly shoes on the runway. posted by sleah in norcal.

  • Fabulous. All eyes on her guaranteed. That’s how’s it’s done, girl! Adore the hair. 

  • Northern_Light_27

    Flawless. Best WERQ in a while!

  • Iroqhard

    LUV HER. Thanks to the other commenters who pointed out that was a horse. For some reason my eyes were not figuring it out. Love the lips! The Hair! All of it!

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    What a lovely dress.  I wish she’d smile with her teeth – just to get a sense of what her face looks like when she’s really really smiling.  But the whole look – ahhhhh.  Beautiful.

  • Bill Curtis

    She’s throwing down some serious Diane Carroll here.

  • Sweetvegan

    It’s a gorgeous gown, but I can’t help think that the idea for the horse print was stolen from Stella McCartney.

  • kikisayshi

    I love the tiny pop of red in the shoe. Fabulous.

  • A horse-themed dress to promote your upcoming western movie? Well played, Washington. Well, played indeed.

    Also, those shoes are crazy fierce.

  • shelley514

    She should have worn this number to the Golden Globes.

  • tereliz

    Flawless, finally! She looks amazing in white.

  • Margaret Covert

    SO BEAUTY! love love love.  can i have that gown and just wear it everyday?  thanks.

  • fursa_saida

    I was 100% with this until I realized it wasn’t an abstract greyscale but rather a sad painting of a horse. I can’t get past it. It looks like the kind of shit I’ve seen in cheap tattoo parlors, I just, no.
