We’re going to tell a little story. A style story, if you will. Spoilers: It ends badly, but the opening chapter’s a knockout.

Cannot even say how much we adore this dress. It’s just unusual enough to get you to stare at it but it’s the gorgeousness that keeps you looking. It’s this perfectly Olivia Pope style of blending dramatically sexy with a business-like aesthetic. Love it. Fantastic look, head to toe.

This one we like quite a bit less. The Pope-apropos white has been serving her well, but you render a white in an ankle-length triangle and it doesn’t work so hot in pictures. And we keep coming back to this point: white shoes are fine, but white pumps are almost always too bridal-looking to us. If this hem stopped at her knees and her shoes were a bit more interesting, we’d love it. The clutch is kind of ugly, though.
And then, darlings…
Kerry Washington attends the premiere of “Scandal” presented by Saks Fifth Ave and Mercedes Benz in New York City in Prada.
Oh girl, no. Not even you can make this toilet paper cozy work. It’s a bad enough dress on its own, but the shoes and the belt actually make it worse. We’ll write this one off as a style fart and hope you get back on track soon, dear.
