Fashion Favorites 2013: Kerry Washington

     Hey Scholars! Like a lot of other people, I absolutely love Kerry Washington. Okay make that borderline obsessed! I have appreciated the work she has done since I saw her in Our Song back in 2000. Since then her body of work has been amazing. In addition to the big screen, she did a stint on Broadway, and is the star of one of TV’s most compelling shows Scandal. She is not only a phenomenal actress; she is a great dresser as well. Here are a few of my favorite looks from this past year.
      To kick off 2013, Kerry traveled to promote Django UnchainedIn Rome, Ms. Kerry rocked a sleeveless, v-neck, front slit, print mix and front ruffled hemline dress by Peter Pilotto. On her feet are navy printed pumps by Nicholas Kirkwood.

Her nude pumps are courtesy of Christian Louboutin. Kotur provided the clutch, brooch, and earrings. The ring is by Neil Lane.
