The Story Behind Kerry Washington's Yellow Gown Will Make You Love It Even More

Kerry Washington is all about lighting up the room. On Feb. 27, the producer stepped out for the SAG Awards wearing a bright yellow dress from Celia Kritharioti's couture spring 2022 collection. The strapless gown featured a bustier top with a sweetheart neckline and ruching at the waist. All eyes were glued to the massive skirt as she graced the red carpet. Washington was styled by Law Roach, who paired the yellow gown with Messika earrings and rings, Stuart Weitzman heels, and a matching yellow Tyler Ellis clutch.

Washington's gown is stunning enough upon first glance, but the meaning behind Kritharioti's collection makes it even more special. When Kritharioti unveiled the couture spring 2022 collection, it was presented for "many colorful days to come." "A collection that celebrates colors and craftsmanship, that celebrates life. It has been two years. Two dark, difficult and gloomy years. But creativity never ends: being present is the best present," she wrote on Instagram in January.

Just one night before, Washington attended the NAACP Image Awards wearing a pink Zuhair Murad gown, also styled by Roach. It's clear she's embracing this season's many color trends. Washington joined her former "Scandal" costar Tony Goldwyn for a sweet reunion as they presented the SAG award for outstanding ensemble in a drama to the cast of "Succession." See her glowing photos from the award show ahead.
