Mom-to-be Kerry Washington radiated the red carpet at the 45th Annual NAACP Awards in Pasadena, Calif. on Saturday (February 22). With a perfectly groomed fishtail braid cascading down her shoulder, the actress, 37, looked stunning in a floor-length blue Thakoon dress with a peach-colored accent.
Kerry took home the Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series award for her role as government fixer Olivia Pope in Scandal. Actor Joe Morton, who plays her on-screen father, was awarded the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series role, and the ABC thriller won the coveted Outstanding Drama Series award.
The following day, Kerry celebrated her baby shower with 50 friends and Scandal colleagues, thrown by the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes.
Co-star Katie Lowes and close friend Jane Fonda were among the invited guests at the female-only event held at the swanky Hancock Park property, with festivities kicking off in the late morning.
