Kerry Washington in Thakoon at the 2014 NAACP Image Awards

Posted on February 24, 2014

Our honest reaction upon seeing these pics: “GOD, Kerry! Are you STILL pregnant?”


Kerry Washington attends the 2014 NAACP Image Awards at Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California in a custom Thakoon navy and peach silk gown paired with Christian Louboutin shoes, a Prada clutch and Suzanne Kalan jewelry.

Doesn’t it seem like she’s been pregnant for about a year now?

What do we all think of this? It’s pretty and dramatic, but it’s not quite doing it for us. We admit, we have a bias against satin-y gowns. They never look quite as luxe as they should in pictures. We love the dark blue on her, but we’re not loving it paired with a pink. We’re also not loving those sleeve-things (highly technical fashion term, you know). And we’re kind of upset about the accessories. That bag is a makeup kit and those shoes look too sporty/daytime for a gown.  The makeup’s pretty and we appreciate the work that went into her hair, but it does tend to give her head a very odd shape.

We keep trying to talk ourselves into liking this look, but the more we look at it, the more we think it’s purely a “first impression” dress. Looks great the second you lay eyes on it, slowly looks less and less great the longer you look at it.
