Kerry Washington is experimental on red carpet

New York, Sep 20 (IANS) Actress Kerry Washington likes it when her style team experiments with different looks for her when she attends red carpet events.

The 36-year-old says her favourite red carpet attire is a white ball gown by Giles Deacon that she wore in January to the London premiere of "Django Unchained", reports

"Dressing for the red carpet is a creative endeavour, working with a team to achieve the final look is fun. My favourite was the Giles gown I wore to the London premiere of 'Django Unchained'. I fell in love with it instantly," Washington told In Style magazine.

"I don't usually get nervous before a red carpet appearance. When it comes to clothes, I try to make decisions I feel good about," she added.

Away from the spotlight at red carpet galas, Washington's regular style comprises an amalgamation of high street and designer wear.

"My off-duty style is really relaxed - comfort is a priority. I like to take sensible classic pieces and throw in trendy elements that are a little more fun. I love MiH Jeans and anything from Topshop - that store is such an essential US import! I'm also a huge fan of Kurt Geiger shoes. Overall, the US high street is nothing compared to the UK," she said.
