Last month, Kerry Washington set an Emmy record for a single person in a single season when she was nominated for four Emmy Awards. Three out of her four nominations are for executive producer roles.

She has been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie (Little Fires Everywhere), Outstanding Variety Special (for Live in Front of a Studio Audience), Outstanding Television Movie (American Son), and Outstanding Limited Series (Little Fires Everywhere).

“To be recognized in this way this morning is such an honor – but to be able to rit with my partner Pilar Savone and our Simpson Street family makes it even more meaningful,” the 43-year-old actress and producer shared in a statement.

“The tears came this morning when I heard about Lynn Shelton’s nomination for Little Fires Everywhere,” she wrote about American filmmaker Lynn Shelton, who died of acute myeloid leukemia in Los Angeles on May 16, 2020, at age 54.

“I’m so incredibly grateful that the Television Academy has chosen to honor Lynn with this very deserved nomination. I know she’s celebrating in the beyond.”

We normally see paisley prints in bohemian dresses or loose-fitting frocks that are worn for casual days. In August 2013, Kerry Washington took a fashion risk with the Giambattista Valli dress that she wore at Disney & ABC’s summer press tour.

The dress features a textured paisley pattern mixed with zebra-like stripes. She definitely took paisleys to the next level and made them look sophisticated.

Not everyone loved this look, but we definitely commend her for being always brave in her fashion choices. Kerry never wears boring pieces, and she is always up to try something new.

We found a couple of paisley pattern frocks at Nordstrom and Shopbop. Just like Kerry’s Giambattista dress, these are totally fresh and glammed up, far from the usual boho style that we usually see them in.
