'Scandal's' Kerry Washington Looks Adorable In Post-Baby Debut (PHOTOS)

Just seven weeks after giving birth to her daughter and nine (or so) months of incredible maternity fashion, Kerry Washington made an adorable post-baby debut.

The "Scandal" star, better known as Olivia Pope, hit the red carpet for the Women in Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Wearing a fun black-and-paint-splattered Max Mara dress, the 37-year-old paired her look with funky orange and candy-like Louboutin heels and a silver clutch.

With a few rings on her fingers and a plunging neckline, the Emmy-nominated actress had wavy curls, dark liner, silver eyeshadow and brightly coloured orange lips.

The new mom was joined by fellow leading ladies in entertainment, including Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne and Eva Longoria, according to Celebuzz. Women In Film, a non-profit organization, honours women going above and beyond in the industry.
