Runway on the Red Carpet: Kerry Washington

It’s only January, but 2013 already had its share of major red-carpet moments. Many of them come courtesy of one petite actress in particular, Kerry Washington, who’s been no stranger to best-dressed lists, even before turning up to the Golden Globes in a stunning nude-hued Miu Miu. While we certainly approved of last night’s rather ladylike look, it’s the more playful side of the “Django Unchained” star that we really love. Thankfully, the film’s European press tour has given the actress the opportunity to wear a string of fearless — and flawless — hot-off-the-runway looks.

With the help of stylist Erin Walsh, Washington has turned up turned out in everything from Louis Vuitton checks (Berlin premiere) to Prada and bangs (Rome). With awards season upon us, here are five of the best looks yet from the shape-shifting star.
