Kerry Washington Is Better Than Ever Post-Baby At 2014 BET Awards

It's hard to improve perfection, but Kerry Washington did just that when she stepped out at the 2014 BET Awards on Sunday night, looking amazing two months after giving birth to her first child.

The 37-year-old "Scandal" star ditched Olivia Pope's trademark trench coats for a floral strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress, which she paired with white Jimmy Choo pumps, a green clutch and a beautiful smile.

The fact that Kerry wore few accessories (save for the clutch and a couple of rings) only enhanced the "Django Unchained" actress' natural beauty, which she enhanced with only the barest of makeup.

Kerry was obviously delighted to be at the event—her first live TV appearance since giving birth—and tweeted her excitement before hitting up the red carpet.

Backstage, the part-time fashion designer ran into Chris Rock, and the twosome shared a cute moment together, which the actress posted on Instagram:

We can't help but love ya, Kerry!

Kerry was in good company:
