Yes, that’s Kerry Washington on the New York Fashion Week runway, but no, she has not had a mid-life crisis and suddenly decided to ditch acting for modeling. She’s actually there because she’s guest judging the Project Runway finale — so she attended the NYFW show earlier today at Lincoln Center in New York City to help choose the reality show’s winner.

RELATED: See more star style at New York Fashion Week here!”

The Scandal star joined the regular Project Runway judges, including Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Zac Posen, to watch the show’s eight final contestants do their thing. Sadly, we’ll have to wait all the way until October 17th, when the finale airs, to see who they chose as the winner.

Until then? We can only drool over Washington’s killer outfit. And drool we will: The star looked stunning in a floral Stella McCartney dress, Casadei red leather pumps, and just-right cleavage (yes, cleavage is an accessory of note).

Tell us: What do you think of Washington’s NYFW outfit? Are you excited for the Project Runway finale?

Not a fan of the neckline on this dress. It’s so beautiful except it looks like she put it on backwards.

I really don’t think she’s all that cute! Just sayin’

Flawless! Love this beauty :)

I am sick of Project Runway. They r so prejudice. They will always have a token black but a black will never win. Emilio Sosa should have won the year he was n the finals. Sonjee won 3 or 4 of the competitions and at the end Michael Kors questioned if she could show at Fashion Week. So glad Michael Kors is gone. Zac Posen is refreshing.

Love the fabric of this dress!! The cut is not easy to wear unless you have a figure like beautiful Ms Washington….agree with Ari that the neckline is kinda strange. But Kerry sure pulls it off!
