Scandal star Kerry Washington glows in this lovely Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2012 cocktail dress with applique detail at the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview Party in Los Angeles. We are absolutely sighing over the hem length (just right!), the satin sash (not too precious) and the silhuoette of this dress. We also love how she brought in a bit of texture with the snakeskin bag, and kept her hair and makeup soft.
Though Ms. Washington accessorized with bare legs and black pumps, you could also wear it with opaque tights as the temperature drops, as seen in the editorial.
Kerry Washington returns to tv as “fixer” Olivia Pope on September 27!
