Kerry Washington Stuns At Primetime Emmy Awards

HBO's Annual Primetime Emmy Awards Post Award Reception - Arrivals

Recently proclaimed as the world’s best-dressed woman by People magazine, Kerry Washington is under pressure to look fabulous at all times.

The newlywed arrived at the Primetime Emmy Awards in a blush cream-and-white Marchesa gown with a hint of gold lace and plenty of flower appliques. The ‘Scandal’ actress tries to find the balance in her outfits; she says, “It’s not dressing like a nun and it’s also not dressing like I’m in a swimsuit competition.”

Kerry was nominated for ‘Lead Actress in a Drama Series,’ but Claire Danes from Showtime’s ‘Homeland’ took home the award.

Be sure to watch the ‘Scandal’ premiere of season 3 on ABC on Oct. 3, 2013.
