Who: Kerry Washington.
When: Thursday, April 7.
Where: A New York screening of her new film Confirmation.
What: An off-the-shoulders Brandon Maxwell Fall 2016 cape dress.
Why: Legions of blogs have dedicated themselves to tracking down the outfits worn by Kerry Washington's Scandal alter-ego Olivia Pope, but Washington herself also regularly stuns on the red carpet. Here, styled with clean, minimal makeup and a sleek topknot, she allows Maxwell's design to make the statement. And, on the heels of a recent statement calling out AdWeek's heavy use of airbrush on her new cover for the magazine, it's the perfect time to pause and say, #nofilter.
