Kerry Washington Wore Whitney Houston’s Ruched Red Velvet Dress From 1996

Kerry Washington looked stunning in red for the American Black Film Festival Awards on Sunday, March 5. We see a lot of stars wearing replicas or nods to iconic looks worn by icons, such as Lily-Rose Depp in a 2023 version of Kate Moss’s memorable sheer gown from the ’90s. The Scandal, however, wore an actual dress worn by absolute legend Whitney Houston in 1996. 

On Instagram, Washington—styled by Law Roach—shared a video of herself in a bright red body-con dress from Marc Bouwer with ruching, halter straps, and a square neckline. She paired the dress with bright red pointed-toe heels. Washington wore her shoulder-length hair sleek and straight in a side part, and she kept the ’90s minimalist theme alive with subtle jewelry, including silver earrings and rings.
