Kerry Washington and her baby bump have hit the Emmys red carpet!
The 39-year-old actress stunned on the 2016 Emmy Awards red carpet in a custom black, Brandon Maxwell cut-out bustier gown that perfectly flaunted her baby belly.
The strapless ensemble came equipped with a cut-out just above the belly and a long, cape-like addition stretching down to the floor.
Topping off the look, the expecting actress sported long, voluminous curls — a ‘do her stylist promised would be “something very special.”
“[Kerry’s hair] has to be something very special. Because she’s pregnant, it’s gonna have to be [a style] that will blow everyone away,” Washington’s longtime hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew previously told PEOPLE.
For the expecting mom, red carpet preparation requires a sartorial confidence boost. “When you’re a pregnant lady on the red carpet, you need to feel like a superhero,” Washington told Extra.
