Washington won two awards at the event which were very well deserved. The first honor was for Best Supporting Actress in the drama series "Scandal." This win was made even more exciting as the series was awarded Best Drama as well.
Kerry then received the President's Award for her humanitarian work breaking barriers for African-American women in television.
Kerry chose a super feminine Oscar de la Renta two-toned pastel sleeveless lace design for the event. The look combined shades of soft pink and aqua. The top featured a scooped neckline and the hemline was sort of a bell shape. It fininshed with a soft train.
Kerry added nude pumps by Louboutin and delicate jewelry by Neil Lane according to Just Jared. A pink hard case clutch rounded out her look. Kerry went soft with her makeup which balanced perfectly with the pastels of her outfit.
Kerry was accompanied by her proud parents. It was easy to see where her great looks come from.
