You Better Work! Kerry Washington Nails Her NYFW Runway Debut

Sep 6 2013 - 12:45pm

Kerry Washington made her runway debut at the Project Runway finale fashion show during New York Fashion Week today. She strutted her stuff in a floral Stella McCartney [1] frock and was all smiles as she made her way down the catwalk. Kerry joined fellow Project Runway judges Nina Garcia, Zac Posen [2], and Heidi Klum [3] in the front row to check out collections from the season 12 finalists. The actress has served as a guest judge on the reality show competition twice in past seasons and shared her excitement over the gig [4] on Twitter, saying, "#HereComesTheJudge LOL."

Kerry's Fashion Week presence isn't anything new, as she's previously popped up at shows for Calvin Klein [5] and Michael Kors [6]. The Scandal star talked about her love of fashion in the October issue of Glamour [7] and revealed her celebrity alter-ego, Red-Carpet Kerry. "I researched her like any other character," Kerry said, adding, "I actually called a good friend and literally asked, 'How do you pronounce Herm├Ęs?' Red-Carpet Kerry needed to know."
