Kerry Washington is stylish star guest at Baby2Baby Gala

Scandal's Kerry Washington looked beautiful as the star guest at Sunday's (15Nov15) Baby2Baby charity gala.

Actress Kerry Washington looked anything but mumsy when she was honoured at the Baby2Baby Gala on Sunday (15Nov15).

The Scandal star turned up in a stunning black prom dress with pink flowers stitched across the bodice and top of the skirt at the event held at Culver City’s 3Labs. With her hair scraped off her face, she made the most of her amazing glow and gorgeous pink lipstick.

The 38-year-old beauty became a mother for the first time when she and husband Nnamdi Asomugha welcomed daughter Isabelle in April 2014. She was the star guest at the charity gala which supports children in low-income families.

“When you become a mom, you enter into this community of mommies and these ladies have become a big part of my life," Kerry smiled when talking about the organisation to WWD. "And it’s the best party of the year so I’m always happy just to come.”

Also in attendance was fashion star Rachel Zoe, who has kids Skyler and Kaius with husband Rodger Berman. She was adamant the charity had made the right choice in picking her friend.

“As great as Kerry is as a human being, she is also so talented, beautiful and philanthropic," she gushed. "She should be honoured all the time for everything.”

Kerry has never let motherhood stop her from putting a stylish foot forward. Even while expecting Isabelle on the set of Scandal, she kept up her high-fashion looks.

“It was really fun for Lyn (Paolo, costume designer) and I, because there didn’t really exist a line out there… that was able to meet our needs in terms of the elevated level of fashion of (my character) Olivia Pope,” she explained to New York Post’s Page Six. “So we wound up inventing our own maternity wear and changing beautiful top-of-the-line clothes into maternity clothes.”
