Kerry Washington in Giambattista Valli Couture
Ah, the post-Oscars letdown; that brief period where the stars all scuttle back to their hidey-holes to take off their tight clothes and uncomfortable shoes so they can eat carbs for the first time in weeks. It’s also, not coincidentally, that period when bitchy celebrity fashion bloggers scramble to find content to fill the day.
We’re not proud. We’re gonna do a rewind to the day before the Oscars; the day when Oscar-nervous stars pretend to be down with the indy film scene and dress “funky” so they can hit the Independent Spirit Awards red carpet like they don’t have a care in the world.
Kerry? That’s your cue.
Kerry Washington attends the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards in a Giambattista Valli couture dress paired with Christian Louboutin pumps, a Bottega Veneta clutch, and a Monique Péan ring.

We suppose she’s a true fashionista, because like all true fashionistas, her looks tend to veer from fabulous to WTFery from day to day. Guess which one this is. In a way, we’re kind of impressed. Somehow, she put together a look that all goes together, while looking like it all clashes. We can’t with that dress. Both fabrics are gorgeous, but you put them together and the eye doesn’t know where to go. You put them with a MATCHY PAIR OF FLORAL BEADED SHOES MY GOD SOMEONE CATCH ME … and T Lo fall out. Adele did this at the Grammys. Is this a thing now, silly Hollywood stylists? Bad enough you forced us to accept the matchy shoe, but now we’re supposed to get all excited over a matchy PRINT shoe? Oh, no. The line, it is drawn. Right here, bitches. This is a thing up with which we will not put. We mean it, fashion people. We’re gonna FIGHT and we’re gonna fight HARD.
Also, the bag clashes and looks cheap.
