Just when you thought Kerry Washington couldn’t get any more gorgeous, she shows up looking like actual royalty on the red carpet. The actress arrived in style for the NAACP Image Awards on Friday in a sleek black and white Victoria Beckham gown, and posed for photos with her fellow #TGIT star Viola Davis on the red carpet. During the show, Kerry hit the stage with Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez, and the pair kept things playful while presenting the award for best actor in a comedy series toBlackish star (and the evening’s host) Anthony Anderson; she also linked up with Jada Pinkett Smith in the audience, sat next to her Scandal costars Darby Stanchfield and Joe Morton, and reunited with Black-ish star Yara Shahidi, who played a young Olivia Pope during the show’s third season.
In addition to celebrating the return of Scandal — the sixth season of the show premieres on ABC next Thursday — Kerry recently rang in her 39th birthday. She appeared to be in party mode when she attended her Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year event at Harvard last week, where she let loose with drag queens and struck silly poses in a convertible.
