Kerry Washington's stunning Oscars afterparty look was worthy of all the mat talk it inspired. Ahead of Sunday night's Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty, the actress shared a hilarious clip of her glam squad taking a page out of Jerry's book from Cheer as they grabbed pom-poms and told her to "Slay, honey!" In the caption, she joked, "When @navarro_college_cheer isn't available, so your #GlamSquad 'mat talks' you as you head to the Vanity Fair #Oscars party (and they're kind of amazing)." The fashion fanfare was well-deserved, as Kerry's modern Cleopatra look by Zuhair Murad was truly a showstopper.
The sequined two-piece set featured intricate embellishments worthy of a ruler, and Kerry topped off her look with gold heels and eye-popping jewelry. Keep reading to take a look at Kerry Washington's gorgeous Oscars outfit from every angle, then see all of this year's best dressed stars.
