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.

Kerry Washington is having to get creative with her current pregnancy.

The actress stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday to talk with the host about her involvement in the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Campaign, which benefits victims and survivors of domestic and financial abuse, while herself sporting the Tory Burch Gemini Link Shoulder Bag.

She also dished on a few details about being back on the Scandal set — namely, how she and the crew are managing to hide the fact that she’s very visibly expecting her second child.

“Big coats, big bags … hiding behind different body parts of other actors,” Washington, 39, said of how she is managing to make her character Olivia Pope not look pregnant.

All the Details on Kerry Washington’s Nail Color Named for Her Daughter Isabelle

Kerry Washington has tacked on OPI Creative Ambassador to her long list of achievements.

The soon-to-be mom of two recently teamed up with the brand to collaborate on their fall/winter lacquer collection, called OPI Washington D.C. So it’s only fitting that the stylish actress, who plays Olivia Pope on the political drama Scandal, was someone whose influence OPI sought.

One person Washington herself looked to for inspiration? Her 2-year-old daughter Isabelle Amarachi, whom Washington named one of the colors for.

“There’s a phrase in D.C. where people say, ‘Inside the Beltway,’ so one of the colors is ‘Inside the ISABELLEtway,’ ” the actress, 39, tells PEOPLE. “It’s one of my favorites, actually, because it’s a beautiful nude for brown girls.

“When I was growing up, ‘nude’ didn’t always mean people that looked like me, so it’s a really beautiful neutral for darker tones, which I love,” she adds.

Kerry Washington on Why She Chose to Reveal Her Baby Bump at the Met Gala

08/03/2016 at 04:30 PM ET

When Kerry Washington hit the Met Gala red carpet in May, one accessory stood out more than the rest: a brand new baby bump.

The red-carpet moment served as Washington’s confirmation that she and her husband, former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, are expecting their second child together.

Why use the star-studded night for her big reveal? Washington tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue that she was keeping with her and Asomugha’s famously private approach to talking about their family (they also share daughter Isabelle Amarachi, 2).

“I hadn’t been public about it [before then],” the Scandal star, 39, says. “I still haven’t made a statement about it because it’s not really how we roll in my family. I knew by the Met Gala [in May] that I wouldn’t be able to hide [my pregnancy].”

Kerry Washington has been one busy woman indeed! On top of wrapping season 5 of her hit show Scandal, whose finale aired Thursday, she is busy gearing up to be a mom for the second time — and fielding questions about it.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live! following the finale, Washington and Scandal‘s creator, Shonda Rhimes, stopped by and talked to the host about Washington’s pregnancy.

“When you were shooting that thing, with [Tony Goldwyn‘s] Fitz, that must’ve been weird,” says Jimmy Kimmel after congratulating the star on her exciting news. “To know that you were pregnant when that was the storyline.”

“I don’t know if that was happening at the same time,” admits Washington, 39. And when Kimmel jokingly asks her when she was ovulating, Washington responds with a laugh and says, “I’ll send you the app on my phone that tracks my various cycles!”
