Producers Guild Awards 2018: Kerry Washington Serves Dark Drama in Paolo Sebastian

Posted on January 22, 2018

Darlings, let us not forget that Hollywood didn’t have just one back-patting ceremony this weekend. Oh, no. We’re in full awards season now, so this past weekend was practically a 48-hour, round-the-clock, succession of luncheons, awards shows and after-parties, all to fete the most feted people in entertainment – of the last three months.

Anyway, our point: The Producers Guild Awards happened too. And while we still have PUH-LENTY of SAG Awards red carpetry to plow through, we thought we’d take a short breather and check out that other awards show for a second.

But what look should we feature as we remind our kittens that we have much more high-end red carpetry in the pipeline for them? It honestly didn’t take much thought. The PGAs were colorful and stylish in their own way (as we’ll see), but this was the most dramatic look of that night:

 

This sort of super-heavy embroidery isn’t the freshest trend of the moment (which is no dig against the designer, since this is from a 2-year-old collection) but part of us thinks that’s why it stood out so much. Had she worn this to the 2016 PGAs, she would have been surrounded by gowns with similar designs and elements and wouldn’t have been nearly as noticeable. That should tell you something about trends. They’re a good way to promote the idea that you’re of-the-moment, but they also tend to strip you of your individuality if your outfit looks like everyone else’s.

Anyway, we think the embroidery is overdone, but we love the shape of this dress on her. The high pony and strong lip really take the look away from its tendency to come off generic. Love the shoes, but we don’t think a T-strap works with that kind of skirt.
