Kerry Washington knows how to work a mesh dress!

The actress wore an off-the-runway Marc Jacobs gown made entirely of mesh for her walk down the red carpet at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday night.

“There are holes in it, so I feel the breeze in all the right places,” she joked during her interview with Ryan Seacrest. “It’s working in this heat.”

“This is your dress and your show,” he responded. “I’m just holding the microphone.”

While the main subject of their on-camera chat was her eye-catching outfit, Seacrest also asked about the status of Olivia and Fitz in Thursday’s highly anticipated season 5 premiere of Scandal.

“It’s Shondaland, so it’s complicated, but if you saw the promo there’s a lot of hints happening between them in sheets and stuff,” she said. “This is the most embarrassing interview ever!”
