Kerry Washington Dishes on Pregnancy and Getting Fitted for Golden Globes

Her Balenciaga gown "had to keep morphing to accommodate" growing belly.

Published January 16, 2014

Kerry Washington finally announced her pregnancy by showing up to the Golden Globe Awards this past Sunday and debuting her baby bump. The Scandal star is usually mum about her personal life, but when Access Hollywood approached her on the red carpet, she couldn't help but gush about her little one.

"I'm very blessed. I'm truly, truly, truly blessed. Everything's so extraordinary. I have loved every moment of this and I'm just really blessed, honestly," the 36-year-old said. "That's the word that keeps coming to me because life is such a wonderful adventure right now."

Washington wore a custom ivory Balenciaga gown with an embellished brooch. She completed the look with Fred Leighton jewels, a white Balenciaga clutch and Casadei sandals. And let's not forget "her little accessory," which made fittings for her dress a little more difficult than usual.

"[We absolutely had] down-to-the-wire fittings because everything keeps changing. You wake up in the morning and you're like, 'When did that happen?' We've been adjusting accordingly so that I would never be truly uncomfortable," Washington said.

"This is custom Balenciaga and so I feel like Alexander Wang designed this dress for the bump more than for me, which I am delighted about. I really wanted to work with Alex. Balenciaga is such a classic epic label and when they offered and when he sent me the drawing I was like, 'That's it,' and thank God because your body changes constantly. The dress had to keep morphing to accommodate." always gives you the latest fashion and beauty trends, tips and news.
