Stunning: Kerry Washington appeared for the first time on the red carpet since giving birth in a painted black dress at the Women In Film Crystal And Lucy Awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday

The non-profit organization Women In Film honours extraordinary women in the entertainment industry at their annual benefit gala, the Crystal + Lucy Awards.

Kerry was honoured with the Lucy Award for Excellence in Television, while actresses Cate Blanchett, Eva Longoria, Rose Byrne, and Jennifer Lee will also be recognised with their own awards.

And it looked as if the actress could barely contain her excitement as she took to the red carpet.

A slick of hot red lipstick added a splash of colour to her complexion, while a coat of smokey eyeshadow defined her eyes.

The new mom gave a boost to her 5ft4in height in a pair of vivid orange heels.

With her hair styled down in loose and romantic waves, the Scandal star did not shy away from showing off a bit of her cleavage with a plunging neckline.

Meanwhile, Eva Longoria did little to tame Kerry's excitement as she wrapped an arm around the stunner.

The Django Unchained actress flashed a wide grin as the 39-year-old Desperate Housewives star cosied up beside her.

She later found her way besides Max Mara Global Ambassador Nicola Maramotti, who towered over the petite actress in a light blue dress that draped along her figure.

Making the most of a child-free night, the star also took time to speak with legendary actress Diahann Carroll.

The Dynasty star cut a youthful figure in a demure black dress that hugged her curves.

Kerry was certainly not the only star to turn heads, as Maggie Gyllenhaal bared her shoulders in a floral halter gown.

The Secretary actress highlighted her complexion with a slick of pink lipstick, along with golden eyeshadow.

Eva also grabbed herself some attention in a snug white tank top that tied at her waist, teamed with a pair of high-waisted trousers.

The Desperate Housewives star was recognised at the event with the Norma Zarky Humanitarian Award.

Cate Blanchett - who was honoured with the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film - looked angelic in a white gown that cascaded in layers.

The Academy Award nominee wore her blonde hair in a chic updo, and opted for a natural palette of make-up consisting of minimal mascara and pink lipstick.

Fellow Australian Rose Bryne - who was given the Women In Film Max Mara Face of the Future award - shimmered in a glimmering blue jumper teamed with a simple chain choker.

Host Tracee Ellis Ross added a splash of colour with a strapless coral dress that bared her shoulders.

The Girlfriends actress was expressive and animated while taking to the podium to host the event.

Rose looked emotional as she accepted the Women In Film Max Mara Face of the Future award.

Summer Outfit Ideas Inspired by Street Style Around the World

Summer vacation season is almost here! But even if you aren't prepping your passport and carry-on luggage for an international trip, you can still take some inspiration from street style around the world. From the sunny streets of Sydney to the grungy music festival grounds in Barcelona, check out cinco, er, five chic layering ideas for the warm-weather season.


In Sydney, Australia, Carmen Hamilton took a borrowed-from-the-boys look right into summer with a long and lean oversize pastel pantsuit by Hansen and Gretel worn over a men's shirt from Zara. She accented with subtle, classic accessories: barely there sandals and a saddle bag by Dylan Kain.

Also down under, model India Farrell un-layered her overalls by wearing them as jeans paired with a striped long-sleeve T-shirt. She went off-duty-model-chic with her accessories: suede chukkas, a grommet-embellished bag, and a studded leather cuff. Another way to wear overalls that won't repel the guys?


Hola! In Madrid, Lorena Corcoles extended the wear of her studded Zara moto by layering it over a light blouse and striped wrap-front miniskirt. Her strappy wedges from Stradivarius made the outfit summery, while the chunkiness complemented the edgy, rebel-girl jacket.


Meanwhile in Barcelona at Primavera Sound, Patricia mixed rocker with boho by layering a vintage floral shawl over a Topshop leather dress over a thrifted beaded shirt. Lace-up booties from Office and a camel fedora from Topshop finished off her music-festival outfit.


And back in the U.S. of A. (New York City, to be exact), Vanessa Senning dressed up her faded Uniqlo skinnies with a white double-breasted Helmut Lang blazer layered over a matching silky tee, an Hermès belt, and aCeline bag. You know we love ourselves a chic high-low outfit.

Graduate Fashion Week 2014

I have always been amazed at the graduates across the UK who, generation after generation, continually wow us with their fresh ideas, creativity and mind-blowing talent. These graduates are the lifeblood and future of the creative industry.

I have for a long time been a supporter of fashion innovation and creative thinking and, having been director of Graduate Fashion Week for the past three years, my passion on this topic continues to grow. Now in its 23rd year, I am extremely proud to be part of such an incredible charity where the opportunities and new schemes being put in place are bigger and better than ever.

The difficulties young people face finding jobs after graduating is phenomenal with nearly 40% of students struggling for six months to find employment. It is important that we do all we can to nurture and celebrate their skills.

This is the very reason the Graduate Fashion Week Charity was set up 23 years ago - to help young people make that all important transition into the industry. Over the years the charity has helped 10,000s of graduates from universities and colleges from right across the UK to do just this. I am very proud of the fact that we have also helped 1,000s of school students see the opportunities available to them and enable them to make the right decisions for their futures.

The George Gold Award provided by our title sponsor, who offers the winner an internship at George House will ensure the graduate is closely mentored and guided during their time with the company. Helping young people being prepared for employment and launching their own businesses is vitally important - not just for them but also for Britain.

We are extremely excited to be at a brand new venue for this year, The Old Truman Brewery. The move signals a new era for graduate fashion, setting us in the heat of one of London's most vibrant and creative areas. The location is sensational and the space allows us to expand the workshop and atelier areas of the exhibition, as well as showcase the graduate collections on some very cool catwalks. I look forward to seeing many of you over the course of the weekend to support the new faces of the fashion industry.
