It’s fitting that on the same week that we welcome “Scandal” back into our lives, Kerry Washington celebrates her 38th birthday. The actress who plays everyone’s favorite fixer has had quite the year: she gave birth to daughter Isabelle, lost her baby weight in record time and launched a best-selling collection with The Limited. And she kicked off her birthday month with a slew of red carpet appearances featuring one stylish gown after another.
Kerry Washington’s style is nothing short of extraordinary every year, in fact. The red carpet darling chooses pieces with an unconventional flair for award shows, whether in the form of ankle-length gowns like her Mary Katrantzou number at the 2015 Golden Globes or dresses with an extravagant high-low train like her Michael Kors stunner at the 2013 Movie Awards. No matter what the accomplished actress wears, it’s a guarantee that all eyes will be on her whenever she steps out. Ahead, 38 times Kerry Washington wowed us in honor of her 38th birthday.
