Kerry Washington's Emmys 2015 Dress Brings The Sparkle To The Red Carpet

Kerry Washington brought on the sparkle to the 2015 Emmys red carpet on Sunday evening, wearing a dress straight from the Marc Jacobs runway.

The 38-year-old "Scandal" star looked fierce and fab in the mesh frock adorned with chain-mail inspired detail and sparkling pailettes. A low neckline and thigh-high slit were the finishing touches to the statement-making look.

And according to Washington, the mesh was a good idea, especially on the overheated red carpet.

"There are holes in it, so I feel the breeze in all the right places," she joked during her interview with Ryan Seacrest. "It's working in this heat."

Also keeping Kerry cool from the high temperatures was her flawless faux bob. Dewy skin, a soft smoky eye and rosy lips were the perfect complement to her ensemble.
