Kerry Washington‘s been changing outfits more often than usual these last couple days while promoting the third season of her show Scandal (which premiered last night) in NYC. Still, while she’s given me a wide variety of exciting options to choose from—polka dots mixed with florals on The Daily Show, a conservative tweed sheath for The View, voluminous chiffon sleeves while walking around the city—my favorite look from the actress’ whirlwind press tour is her simplest: a cherry sheath by Max Mara. I just love how the unadorned silhouette balances the firecracker color, that it won’t look dated it she wears it again in 10 years and, best of all, that it’s a flattering style on everyone. If you don’t already own a killer LRD, it’s worth investing in one today because you’ll be using it your entire life. Click through the slideshow above to find your perfect version now.
