Wearing a blue and white dress by late iconic fashion designer Oscar de la Renta and shoes by Christian Louboutin, Kerry Washington looked quite the glowing star on the red carpet at the 2014 Baby2Baby Gala held November 8, 2014 in Culver City. Kerry wore her hair in a deep side part with a whimsical updo. And of course, her makeup was on point and added to her innate glow.
