Kerry Washington Bumps It Up in Blue

Kerry Washington is on a roll!

After fashionably stepping out to attend the NAACP Image Awards on Saturday, the Scandal star once again wows us with her impeccable bump style at the seventh annual Essence magazine Black Women in Hollywood luncheon Thursday.

The expectant actress, who recently celebrated her baby shower, wore a blue off-the-shoulder sheath paired with black Jimmy Choo Anouk pumps and an Emm Kuo clutch.

She also opted to wear her hair in cascading curls with a smoky eye and soft lip.

Washington, who is expecting her first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha, hasn’t revealed her baby’s sex, but she does have us wondering if it’s a boy. This is the second time she’s worn blue on the red carpet.

We won’t know for sure until her baby does arrive, but we can’t help but think this may be some sort of sign.

Why would her clothing color choice have anything to do with the gender of her baby?

Jamie Girl on

Kerry is one gorgeous woman!

Michelle Jackson on

Anyone else just think this is her private way of saying she’s having a boy? And Kerry looks fab with a little weight on her in my opinion!

Liz on

Bumps it up? That’s rude and disrespectful. Stupid PEOPLE.com. She’s pregnant! Can’t you say she’s pregnant? Repeat after me PREGNANT…

Tara on

She looks great being pregnant. So much healthier with a little added weight.

heather – I agree 100 percent! Also, the dress she wore to the NAACP awards was techinically blue AND pink. So I guess that means she must be having boy/girl twins according to PEOPLE’s logic! ;)

Also meant to mention that it’s possible that even Kerry doesn’t know the gender of her baby yet. As much as I like PEOPLE, it kind of irks me that they just seem to automatically assume that every celeb opts to find out their child’s gender before birth!

Come on, we all know it’s going to be a baby girl :)

Liz- Just curious, how would YOU have written the headline? :)

"We weren't trying to have kids. We left it up to fate. I knew there was a possibility, but I was really excited. Even if you are trying, just to see a positive result is shocking!"
