Double Take: Kerry Washington and Chanel Iman in Gucci

Double Take: Kerry Washington and Chanel Iman in Gucci

This jewel-toned frock was so hot, it needed to hit the red carpet twice.

Published May 3, 2011

Gucci’s twisted wrap dress is not for the faint at heart with its plunging neckline and bold blocks of color, but this week, Kerry Washington partied (or maybe just posed) in the racy number at Mary J. Blige’s 2nd Annual Honors Concert in New York City. Washington played off the gold sash with strappy metallic sandals and hoop earrings and added even more color to the vibrant look with a purple Gucci “Malika” clutch.


Model Chanel Iman wore the spring/summer 2011 collection dress at the 500 by Gucci launch party during Milan Fashion Week back in February. Chanel let the dress speak for itself and skipped accessories, but she also kept things colorful with Gucci “Kelis” suede and python ankle strap platform sandals.


Did Kerry’s accessories make the dress more interesting, or do you think Chanel got it right, keeping the look simplified? Vote in our poll now!
