Kerry Washington CFDA Awards Dress: Actress Turns Heads In Yellow Jason Wu Design (PHOTOS)

The 2013 CFDA Awards (aka the Oscars of fashion) took place Monday night in New York City and as you can imagine the industry's biggest names and brightest stars were in attendance. With people like Vogue's Anna Wintour, fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, actress Jessica Chastain and supermodel Linda Evangelista on hand, standing out on the red carpet was quite the feat. However, Kerry Washington made it look easy.

The "Scandal" actress, who was one of the evening's presenters, turned heads in a bold and beautiful gown by FLOTUS favorite, Jason Wu. The yellow-hued duchess satin design offered a welcome pop of color in the sartorial sea of black and white ensembles. We also loved the back of the dress, which boasted criss-cross straps and a ruffled bustle. The 36-year-old star accessorized the look with a small wooden Lanvin clutch and Monique Pean jewelry. She kept her hair and makeup simple, allowing the dress to do all the wowing.
