She shot to stardom with a lead role on Scandal.
But on Monday, it was Kerry Washington’s style that skyrocketed as she attended a celebration for The Limited Collection Inspired By Scandal in New York City.
The 37-year-old new mother dazzled in a blue dress that featured a pattern of clouds, and put her cleavage on display in the frock’s form-fitting and plunging neckline.

Kerry’s sky-themed look featured a peplum detail along the neckline, along with a pleated-like skirt that modestly fell just below her knees.
She teamed the dress with a matching pair of dark blue peep-toe heels, and carried a sparkling multicoloured clutch.
Kerry polished off the look by sweeping her hair back into an elegant pony tail, and highlighted her stunning features with a coat of blush and ample eyeliner.

Fashion retailer The Limited has launched a collection of clothing inspired by the the powerful and professional looks featured on the hit ABC drama Scandal.
Kerry teamed up with the show’s costume designer Lyn Paolo, and Elliot Staples – The Limited’s head of design – to create the chic, business-ready line, according to a press release.
Pieces from the new line include pastel-coloured trousers, button-up coats, and a beige sleeveless dress.

In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily in June, Kerry said of the line: ‘People who love the look of the show can now step into this world in a way that is affordable and accessible because not everybody can afford to have the clothes they see on the show.’
Kerry, Lyn, and Elliot appeared on The Today Show on Monday, and the actress said that buyers would be able to create a number of looks out of the pieces.
‘And the great thing about the collection, there’s 42 pieces, but they all work with each other. We wanted to make sure that if you buy a bunch of pieces you can put them in your closet and come up with hundreds of looks based on each item.’
In addition to the new line, the fourth season of Scandal will hit ABC on September 25.
