Pretty in Pink

Kerry WashingtonUnder normal circumstances, I wouldn’t advise coordinating your lipstick to a tiered fuchsia cocktail dress, but on Kerry Washington at last night’s fête to celebrate Emmy Award nominees, it works. (Then again, what doesn’t?) With summer officially ending this Saturday, why not break out the bright tube one last time before slicking on richer berry and burgundy tones? Just play it like Washington did here and keep the rest of your look ultra-simple with neutral shadow, lush lashes, nude nails, and pared-down accessories (like her stark white Nancy Gonzalez clutch). Suddenly, matchy-matchy feels modern again.
