The “Scandal” actress who is expecting her first child with husband Nmamdi Asomugha showed off her glowing skin and growing baby bump in the beautiful blue Calvin Klein sheath, paired with gorgeous curly tresses, a chic Emm Kuo clutch and black Jimmy Choo heels.
Also present at the event was fashion red carpet favorite Lupita Nyong’o, who showed off toned abs in a cropped Giambattista Valli top and midi skirt. As for Washington, she recently celebrated her baby shower with friends at family at the home of “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, Us Weekly reports. According to an eye witness, “Everyone was so happy to see Kerry and immediately began admiring her belly. They seemed to have a great day all around.”
For those living under a rock, “Scandal” returned to television this week, and E! News reports that the actress is flattered that First Lady Michelle Obama is a huge fan of the show. Washington told Ryan Seacrest that she was “super flattered and honored” that the First Lady loves the show. “I had never watched it,” Lady Obama said during a January “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” radio interview. “I love Kerry Washington. She is amazing, so it makes the show fun.”
"I do a lot of work at the White House and I never wanted to say, 'Hey do you watch my show?' while we are out there doing work in schools, so I've never asked her," Washington said of the First Lady. “So it was really fun to hear she watches the show and enjoys it.”
Washington and Asomugha's baby is due this Spring. In the meantime, fans of the actress cannot wait to see what she will wear on her next red carpet outing.
