Kerry Washington Pops in Watercolor Dress, Latex Gloves and Louboutins at Academy Museum Gala 2022

Kerry Washington took slick drama for a spin at the 2022 Academy Museum Gala in Los Angeles.

The “Confirmation” star arrived at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in a sheer Prabal Gurung dress. Styled by Law Roach, the sleek number featured a red, white and purple paint-streak-esque pattern across a halter-neck style. The ruched silhouette included black velvet upper trim, creating a cutout appearance and a plunging neckline. Long black latex gloves and diamond drop earrings completed Washington’s ensemble with a glamorously sultry finish.

When it came to footwear, Washington’s ensemble was finished with a sleek set of Christian Louboutin pumps. Her style featured black patent leather pointed-toe uppers, complete with closed counters. Stiletto heels totaling at least 4 inches in height finished her ensemble, giving it a height boost with a sharply formal air.
