Miss Kerry surveyed the summer red carpet landscape, snorted to herself and said, “Who are all these basic bitches showing up in black dresses in high summer? Pfft. It’s time to get my Lady Garden on.”
Kerry Washington attends the 2014 BET Awards at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, California in a Dolce&Gabbana strapless dress paired with an Amanda Pearl clutch, Casadei pumps, and Roseark jewelry.

And thus it came to pass. And T Lo wept glittery tears of joy, because they’d about had it with basic bitches in black dresses.
And speaking of basic, that’s what this dress is. It’s not fashion-forward, but then again, we wouldn’t expect it to be, especially at the BET Awards, which has a red carpet populated by dragtastic and boobtastic gownery. It’s just a pretty, flowery, perfectly summertime dress – and that’s a rarity this summer among the red carpet set. Our only complaint is that the skirt’s a bit too stiff and bell-shaped. Also: she could use a little color on her lips, but that’s something we’ve been saying about 90% of the women on the RC lately.
We don’t mind the white shoes, but it’s fun to mentally pick out any of the colors in the dress and matching the shoes to them. It becomes a slightly different outfit each time. Picture an orange or yellow pump. Or even a purple one or lilac one.
