We were totally expecting some style risk takers to hit the SAG Awards red carpet Saturday evening. But we weren’t expecting one of the most jaw-dropping fashion moments of the night to come from Kerry Washington. Yes, she’s six months pregnant. And yes, she’s wearing a crop top!

The nominee stunned in a hot pink midriff-baring beaded top and midnight blue silk skirt by Prada. She teamed the look with Harry Winston diamond earrings and a coordinating diamond cocktail ring. The ensemble was a complete 180° from the pale Balenciaga design she wore to the Golden Globes.

“I don’t have anything to hide anymore, so I’m having a little fun tonight,” she said on the carpet.

Right now when she preps for events, she’s going for function over fashion. “I look for things that fit,” she told PEOPLE at a pre-SAG Awards party in L.A. “That’s the first rule. That’s the first goal. What fits.” The second rule? “I just have to feel good in it, and like it myself so that I feel comfortable all night.” (For the record, we love that Washington feels comfortable in crop tops.)

Regardless of whether she wins tonight or not, 2014 is going to be a very exciting year for the Scandal star. “I feel really, really blessed. It just feels like a really good time.”

Are you all blind? She looks good, but this outfit looks horrible!!

Very bold but definitely not our favorite KW look. She usually wins on the Red Carpet but tonight, her stylist screwed up….

I don’t like what she’s wearing this time.

Blanka on

If it was Kim K, everyone would be nailing her to the cross right…

Not a fan of crop tops for anyone. This one looks way to big for her frame…pretty color though.

A bit risky. This new pregnant fashion trend
is too much. Keep it covered, too much skin in the wrong places with the maternity wear.

She usually looks great… But this is not one of those times. Toss the top. Even of she weren’t pregnant, this top needs to go.
