Kerry Washington Gets Mixed Reviews in Custom Sally LaPointe

Kerry Washington has always been a red carpet favorite with her fabulous looks and impeccable taste. She is a staple in best dressed lists, and fans have always coveted her style.

However, her custom Sally LaPointe gown at the 2017 Writers Guild Awards earned mixed reactions from fashion critics.

The 40-year-old “Scandal” actress wore a black dress with a strapless neckline and a column silhouette. The gorgeous detailing of the dress featured a leather corset, an embellished bodice and a low back. In addition, the dress comes with a clever rear vent that gave us a glimpse of her Sophia Webster shoes.

There is no denying that Kerry looks fabulous no matter what she wears, but the uneven bust line and odd fit of the custom gown baffled the style critics. Despite the imperfections of the dress, we think Kerry still looked great at the event.

She wore her side-parted hair down and past her shoulders in tousled waves. She also styled her look with dark red lips and a black clutch from Jimmy Choo.

Just a few days ago, Kerry also graced the 2017 NAACP Image Awards with her presence and wowed the critics in a Prabal Gurung charcoal gown with multicolored embroidery. The dress also features a scoop neckline, sheer bell sleeves, a floor-length skirt, and a short train. Kerry finished off her look with side-parted waves and soft pink lips.

This particular dress is cinched at the waist with a black belt, as seen in Prabal Gurung’s Pre-Fall 2017 lookbook. Kerry opted to wear it without the belt, but she looked great nonetheless.
