I wish Kerry Washington went to more events, because she is always so bubbly and charming on the red carpet. You sort of forget how vivacious she is, because Olivia Pope, obviously, is…you know. She’s got a lot on her plate. (On the red carpet last night, she had a great line about how Olivia always has a stain stick in her purse: “”Even a stain, she must fix.”)  And I ALSO wish she would tell Prada to leave her alone, because MEH:

I actually think this looks better in photographs than it did on TV and I still think it’s totally half-assed. Kerry Washington deserves an Emmy dress that has not been phoned in. Someone, HANDLE THIS.

She looked totally cute at the pre-party, though:

Kicky! (Maybe could have used some lipstick, Kerry. But I know you have a tiny baby at home. Things slip through the cracks.)
