Tabatha's Takeover: Kerry Washington Is an Easter Parade Gone Wrong

Posted on

We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the best – and worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Kerry Washington, who wore a pink-and-green Oscar de la Renta gown to the NAACP Image Awards in L.A. this week: 

I’m probably going to get a lot of negative comments for this one, but I absolutely can’t stand this Easter egg hunt of a dress on the lovely Kerry Washington. And honestly, I’m quite shocked this dress was even an option. It does nothing for her figure and it makes her look like she is 10 years old waiting for her grandma to pick her up for Easter brunch. Before I go any further, I’m going to need someone to burn those shoes.

If I had any say in the styling, I would put Kerry in something a bit more fitted and flattering. The color of the dress would hands-down be emerald green, not only because it is Pantone’s color of the year, but for the fact it would complement her complexion and hair color.

As far as hair and makeup go, I’m actually quite okay with what I’m seeing. A little lip color wouldn’t hurt, but I’m sure the makeup artist chose to stick with a nude palette to play it safe with this kind of dress.
