Kerry Washington looked absolutely stunning in her Versace look on the Tony Awards red carpet today and she definitely knew it! The actress rocked a pearly white ensemble that caught everyone’s attention at the event.
The sparkling embellishments, plunging neckline and flowing waist cape were all elements that made her red carpet outfit stand out.
Kerry obviously felt great at the awards event and smiled brightly for the cameras while on the velvety carpet outside Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Before the show, the star talked about her fantastic ensemble to ET, saying: ‘I figured that I wanted to sparkle a little. I love theatre and I am so excited to be coming back to Broadway. So I wanted to really make tonight as festive as possible.’
As fans probably already know, Washington is set to star in American Son’s Broadway production, and this is also her official return to the stage following her debut back in 2009.
At the time, she starred in David Mamet’s Race (2009), before she got her role in Scandal.
‘I have not been to the Tonys since the play that I did on Broadway almost 10 years ago. So I am really, really thrilled to be here and to be a part of this theatre community.’
She also opened up about her upcoming play, saying: ‘American Son is such an extraordinary play and it is so moving and so topical. It really had a huge impact on me on the page, so I cannot wait to get it on its feet.’
