Kerry Washington is Glam’Mompreneur barely 2 months after baby Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha’s birth and that is no easy feat. She is joining the ranks of seasoned fashion fabulous Mommies such as Kimora Simmons and Victoria Beckham.
The Scandal star revealed her post-baby glam at the Women In Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards where she received the Lucy Award for Excellence in Television where she spotted a lovely Sportmax Fall 2014 dress paired with Christian Louboutin orange geo pumps – the kind with spiked toe tip. She accessorized her outfit with a cute Rauwolf clutch, Vhernier ring and Kate Spade earrings. Not to forget the orangey red lipstick which I just love to bits.
Her Acceptance speech was just as lovely and I quote:
“We as women put ourselves in this situation of feeling like we can’t take a risk. Like, in order to step out there we have to be perfect, because we’re scared that if we don’t say the right thing or do the right thing, it will reflect poorly on ourselves and on our community — whether that community be women, people of color, or both. So, sometimes, we don’t step out there.
I work for a woman, Shonda Rhimes, who because of her courage to step into her light and step up and own her voice, has provided an opportunity for so many other woman to soar in front of and behind the camera. When we step up for ourselves, we create opportunity whether it’s because we inspire other people or because we employ other people…or both.
We need to not be afraid of taking those risks that Kate [Blanchett] talked about. We need to be willing to be uncomfortable, to be flawed, to be imperfect, to own our voice, to step into our light so that we can continue to inspire other people and employ other people and make room for more and more voices.”
