The biggest star of Scandal made an appearance on the 2016 Academy Awards red carpet this year, and her gown did not disappoint to say the very least. Kerry Washington’s 2016 Oscars dress was pretty much what dreams were made of. Washington is one of the presenters at the prestigious 2016 awards show, and even though she isn’t a nominee, she still managed to deliver a major style moment. Wearing a column-style black and white gown, the look was simple, stunning, and undeniably chic in every way possible. Oh, and featured a fierce leather bodice that is absolutely everything.
Paired with simple and sophisticated makeup and jewelry, this look is really beautiful in its simplicity and details — the combination makes for an epic fashion moment. Washington’s accessories are understated and go perfectly with the entire look, highlighting the best parts of the gown — the detailing on the bodice being my personal favorite part. While Washington might only presenting, she definitely as a shot of winning best dressed with this look. No matter what the reason, when on the Oscars red carpet, you serve up the most fashionable look possible (especially if you’re Kerry Washington), right? Exactly.
