Kerry Washington Jumping In A Pool In Her SAG Dress Is The Carefree Black Joy We Love

Our sis showed up on her terms.

Excuse us for not being able to contain ourselves from the excitement of how Kerry Washington showed off her 2021 SAG Awards outfit this year!

The Scandal star decided to take her Etro gown for a swim ahead of the award show, jumping in a pool fully dressed to the nines, in the beaded design and a matching headpiece. And sis would have rocked her matching heels from Loriblu for the festivities, but ultimately decided to kick them off.

But why? Why jump in a pool in a full gown? No reason outside of being a carefree black woman, dripped in black joy—which is reason enough for me.

And as daring as this was, the usually tame actress has had plenty of daring fashion moments that has given us all our lives.

For the 2020 Golden Globes, she decided on a risqué get-up: an Altuzarra high-waisted black satin skirt with a thigh-high slit and a black blazer (from the same designer).

She completed the look with a classic red lip—a fashion statement that is ever a bad idea.

For the 2016 Emmys, she showed up with company. She wore a side-cut dress and a belly​ completely in tow.

And for the U.K. premiere of Django Unchained, she showed out in a classic, yet unconventional floor-length gown, paired it with Christian Louboutins, and a deep maroon lip to match.

Basically, sis is not new to serving the looks for the people and has been for a long time. The SAG Awards just need to keep up with her. And the best part is there's still a lot of award season left for us to see what she has up here sleeve next!
