Kerry Washington Basically Kills The Notion Of Pregnant Women Not Being ‘Sexy’

86th Annual Academy Awards - ArrivalsOh man, Kerry Washington is just.. beyond. I can’t even. I have no idea if she has extensions in or what but she looks just stunning. She would look stunning if she wasn’t extremely pregnant but this should put the whole question of “Are pregnant women sexy?” to bed FOREVER. She is beyond gorgeous. I can’t think of another pregnant celebrity who has looked this amazing ever. Everything Kerry has worn has been pretty perfect.

Here she is at the Essence luncheon:

7th Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon



And at the NAACP Image Awards:

45th NAACP Image Awards Presented By TV One - Press Room


And at The Golden Globes wearing that ridic adorable crop top that many of you hated:


20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Arrivals


I don’t know how she does it. It’s exhausting just looking at her. I was lucky to put on lipgloss when I was heavily pregnant. This is probably the only time I’ve ever felt truly envious of a pregnant celebrity, but I just love everything about her.

The Jason Wu dress, the dark berry lip, her gorgeous understated jewelry. I hate to say it, but the E Network said her baby bump is her best accessory and I totally agree.

I don’t get super swoon over fancy Hollywood people but I just love Scandal and Kerry Washington is so gorgeous and such an amazing actress, besides, it’s Oscar night which is basically the Superbowl of fashion so I’m allowed to swoon. Now we just need to see her in a big blockbuster movie where she is nominated for her own Oscar.

    Glamorous, beautiful, poised- definitely. But I dunno about sexy, I wouldn’t say any of those pictures really venture to sexy.

  • Kay_Sue

    I’d hit it. And I don’t mean with a stick! ;)

      J Law first. Then her. ;-)

      I have a mad crush on J Law. It’s ridiculous, because logically, I believe most of her image is contrived…and yet, it has me. Hook, line, and sinker.

    • Valerie

      I just adore her.

  • whiteroses

    She’s an amazing actress. And I kind of hate her- because on my wedding day I looked like an eight months pregnant blimp in a gray dress. Sigh.

    Don’t get me wrong–I adore Kerry Washington! And she does look gorgeous.

    However, having been pregnant myself and struggling to lose weight, I wish there wasn’t this kind of attention and pressure on women’s bodies. If it’s not being “sexy” while pregnant, it’s “bouncing back” afterwards. I’m one of the ladies whose bodies has changed quite a bit through pregnancy and I suffer from a bit of shame about the fact that I’m more inclined to hide it and apologize for it when it has functioned so magnificently and given me a family to be proud of.

    That’s certainly not Kerry Washington’s fault, tho :)

  • Kelly

    She’s pretty but I think all those dresses are ugly.

  • Byron

    I don’t find any of the above pictures attractive, much less sexy. Pregnancy has nothing to do with it either, the outfits are ridiculous/hideous and the features are all not quite what I’d call pretty either.

    I don’t know this passes sexy for older people or what. I like classy gowns and dresses actually, so it’s not that just fancy dressing in itself is unappealing, I just rather go for something more like this:

      Ah, to each his/her own.

      For my taste, I think the dresses you posted are cheap looking, pageant-y and the stuff of junior prom (sorry–I call ‘em like I see ‘em). I can’t imagine a grown woman wearing anything like that on the red carpet–Halle Berry’s dress when she won her Oscar is reminiscent, but much more sophisticated (and I didn’t even really like Halle’s dress, which should tell you something about my aesthetic). But, fashion is one of those things that serves a lot of different tastes. Yours is probably more conservative than mine, and it’s equally valid.

      Although I do think that even though Washington pushes the envelope (and her crop-top with skirt look was very hit-or-miss with people; more of a miss for me), you’d have to agree that she is a stunningly beautiful woman who at least HAS a sense of style (even if it’s not a style you yourself like). I like that she looks different and still pulls off elegance.

    • Byron

      Hehe, that just goes to show how ignorant I am of fashion. What you say about these dresses would have never crossed my mind. While this isn’t news, I do find it funny at the same time.

      I don’t know if I’m conservative as much since out of what appeared into my search most looked like the pics above (or like lingerie…) and I was just looking for something that I’d find attractive, I wasn’t trying to find what I’d identify as ideal. If you want to provide me with an example I guess we can test how conservative my tastes truly are.

      And…I’m sorry but I disagree, maybe she doesn’t photograph very well or they chose bad pictures of her but especially the top one, she just doesn’t look pretty at all to me. I don’t know how to put it in a PC way, “her face just kinda looks weird” is the most accurate way of putting it but I feel kinda bad saying it like that. Ah well. It is what it is.

    I honestly think that Kerry Washington doesn’t get enough attention, but I know why. She’s a black woman, and white actresses tend to get more attention.

    Rock on, Kerry! You’re gorgeous!
