Own The Look: Kerry Washington's 2013 Golden Globe Style Report + Hair & Makeup Details

I adore Kerry Washington! I haven't seen Django Unchained yet which won Best Screenplay in last nights Golden Globe Awards but I am a HUGE fan of her new hit series Scandal on ABC! If you haven't seen the show yet then you need to get into it, seriously. I saw a lot of mixed reviews about Kerry's red carpet style at the Globes but I actually loved the entire look.

Kerry Washington epitomized chic at the Golden Globe Awards with a nude Miu Miu gown and blunt bangs. Makeup artist Carola Gonzalez complemented Kerry's look with a bold eye—purple was the star shade—and a muted lip.

Kerry's hair breakdown using John Frieda.

So before you pause your game of  binguez check out how Celebrity hairstylist Marcus Francis was inspired by Kerry Washington's sequined, structured gown. Below are the three easy steps he took to create her sleek and classic look, using products from John Frieda. While you're checking out Kerry's hairstyle 

Step 1 – Prep
  • Spray Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray ($9.99 at drugstores), throughout wet hair and comb through to distribute the product evenly.
Step 2 – Style
  • Blowdry hair straight. Take a flat iron and straighten hair section by section--the heat of flat iron will activate 3-Day Straight, to ensure sleek style that lasts all night long.
Step 3 – Perfect
  • Smooth Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème ($5.99) throughout hair to give a smooth, shiny finish.


  1. I like the dress, but I think the bottom would be better if the sheer part was cut around the accents. Not sure about that hair.

  2. Absolutely in love with the site. I.e my new addiction
