Kerry Washington Saves the Day at the For Colored Girls Premiere
Tyler Perry’s first R-rated film, For Colored Girls, may be a star studded hit at the box office, but the ladies flopped big time at the red carpet premiere. The event was held a couple weeks ago at the Ziegfeld Theatre in NYC. Recap of the fashion disaster is as follows — Janet in a black wide leg pant suit, Thandie in an unshapely gray dress, Anika Noni Rose (from Princess and the Frog) in a blinding orange and gold dress.
Luckily, Kerry Washington never dissapoints and represented “for the colored girls” in a beautiful fall floral maxi dress by Missoni. Although we typically think of the maxi dress as a spring/summer look, it’s very appropriate this season for two reasons — florals in deeper hues are hot right now and long and flowing always works for semi-formal or formal holiday attire.
Kerry’s Missoni dress will run from $1,500 to $2000, but this cascade print maxi from Bebe is a worthy contender for just $398…
