We were totally expecting some style risk takers to hit the SAG Awards red carpet Saturday evening. But we weren’t expecting one of the most jaw-dropping fashion moments of the night to come from Kerry Washington.

Yes, she’s six months pregnant. And yes, she’s wearing a crop top!

The nominee stunned in a hot pink midriff-baring beaded top and midnight blue silk skirt by Prada. She teamed the look with Harry Winston diamond earrings and a coordinating diamond cocktail ring.

The ensemble was a complete 180° from the pale Balenciaga design she wore to the Golden Globes.

“I don’t have anything to hide anymore, so I’m having a little fun tonight,” she said on the carpet.

Right now when she preps for events, Washington’s going for function over fashion.

“I look for things that fit,” she told PEOPLE at a pre-SAG Awards party in L.A. “That’s the first rule. That’s the first goal. What fits.” The second rule? “I just have to feel good in it, and like it myself so that I feel comfortable all night.” (For the record, we love that Washington feels comfortable in crop tops.)

Regardless of whether she wins or not, 2014 is going to be a very exciting year for the Scandal star. “I feel really, really blessed. It just feels like a really good time.”
