Kerry Washington is so very…

Beautiful.
Radiant.
Glamorous.
Gorgeous.

I could keep going, of course. I love this shot of the mom-to-be at the NAACP Image Awards this past weekend. She makes it look so effortless and as many women can attest to, it’s hard work to look fabulous on the red carpet, especially when pregnant!

I know for a fact, how challenging it can be. I worked the Golden Globes when I was two weeks away from giving birth to my first daughter…and the Oscars last year when I was four and a half months pregnant with my second child. It goes without saying that I did not look anywhere NEAR as good as Kerry. No access to a glam squad. No stylist with a designer gown for my bump. I was doing good just to find something that would zip up!

Of course, all eyes are on Kerry and the pressure to look good- pregnant or not- is intense. Which is why I wanted to send a little style shout out to the actress. Her Thakoon gown looks quite lovely on her. The cut is flattering, the color rich and very important for a mom-to-be…it looks comfortable!

But most important of all- she looks happy. Very happy. Her inner beauty shines through and if ever there was anyone who is “glowing,” it’s Kerry. I hope she’s enjoying her pregnancy…every second of it. Even the ones where she’s stuck in heels for hours at awards shows and other red carpet events.

Well done, mama, well done.
