Kerry Washington was proud in blue at the 7th Annual ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood luncheon earlier this week. The expectant actress walked into the social event wearing an azure-blue dress from Calvin Klein’s collection. Kerry’s glow matched her radiant gown as she cradled her bump while conversing with other guests.
It was just a few days ago that Washington enjoyed a spectacular baby shower at fellow friend Shonda Rhimes’ house. The actress was surrounded by family and friends who gave her lots of gifts and well wishes for her future life as a parent. Jane Fonda commented on the experience saying, “I hadn’t seen Kerry since she was pregnant and as soon as I saw her with her gorgeous belly I starting crying. Then Kerry’s mother spoke, giving words of wisdom to Kerry and the rest of us about how to raise a baby to be a happy, fully realized, person. I started crying again (and it wasn’t because I wanted to go back and do my own raising of my own kids all over again with more wisdom, though that did press in on me) . . . it was because her words moved me.”
Kerry is expecting her and husband Nnamdi Asomugha’s first child to arrive this Spring. Check out more photos from her appearance at the ESSENCE Black Women in Hollywood luncheon below!
