The good news: Kerry Washington wore three dresses in one day. The better news: We have all the details on those dresses. The best news: Season 3 of Scandal starts tonight!

Our Best Dressed Star of the year put on a marathon parade of fashion Wednesday to promote her hit ABC show at three separate events.

First up, the actress selected a feminine floral Prabal Gurung design featuring billowy sleeves, cutouts at the neckline and a flattering black waistband that nipped her waist in all the right spots. To let the print shine, she kept her accessories, including a Freedom of Animals clutch, solid for an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Next, Washington hopped on the off-the-shoulder dress bandwagon, selecting an ivory J. Mendel dress with sheer stripes (to which she added a lizard Hunting Season clutch and her signature white pumps) at the She’s Making Media event in N.Y.C.

And for her last stop, she made a major statement in a checked taffeta Prada gown (which could be from the costume archive of Little House on the Prairie), teamed with a white Stella McCartney belt and half-pinned faux bob (anyone else curious about trying this style?) at Saks Fifth Avenue’s Scandal event. She wore the same House of Lavande Vintage earrings she paired with her Letterman look to finish the look.

And while her dresses kept changing, one thing stayed exactly the same: Washington’s signature left-hand-on-the-hip pose and that sexy gaze. If she’s looking for some extra work, she could definitely teach a course on red carpet posture. Let us know which is your favorite — and on a scale from 1 to 10, how excited you are about the show coming back tonight!

Kerry is petite and the dress in the middle and the dress on the right are too big for her. She should have had them tailored.

Just a lovely woman! Not sure WHY she doesn’t have her own page under the Celebs section yet. Go figure.

The third dress wouldn’t be so bad if it were shorter. It just has way too much material. I like the white one best just because she looks so good in white, but the one on the left is really cute too. I love her style. Classy!

They are all horrible on her. I’ve seen her look much better.

Susan on

The blue checked one is too big for her. Did she have some work done on her face/lips?

lilahk on

Kerry looks fuller in the face. Pregnant?

I didn’t like the neck area of dress # 1, dress # 2 seemed too big on her.. and dress # 3 – cute but too big for her. However, she manages to look great no matter what she wears.

None of the dresses are attractive. She is very pretty, but not in any of those dresses.
