Kerry Washington Pulls Off World's Busiest Dress With Aplomb

On paper, Kerry Washington's Peter Pilotto frock would've been a solid contendor for worst-dressed lists: A peplum hip combined with cut-outs and cascading ruffles is enough to make anyone's head spin. But, the Scandal star didn't stop there — rather than stick to a single hue, the dress boasted a motley crew of clashing prints, proving that less is so not more.

Plus, as the only female cast member at the Rome photo call for Django Unchained, it wouldn't have taken much for Washington to make heads turn. But, boy are we glad this gal didn't play it safe! She's been known to rock patterned pieces from Mary Katrantzou and Stella McCartney in the past, so we predict much more attention-grabbing attire during her ongoing press tour. Here's hoping she and her stylist packed those suitcases with florals, graphics, and stripes aplenty!
