Intern Stylefile: Kerry Washington + New Line Alert

Happy Tuesday!
Intern Suzie hits us with a Stylefile on actress Kerry Washington. Enjoy!
Hey Guys!
Suzie here, so sorry for disappearing on you! I was in London (on business)...and you know I had to stop in Burberry and exercise my credit cards:) Anyway, I'm here to profile one of my fave actresses, style icons, and Essence Cover Girl...


...Ms. Kerry Washington. She is a consummate lady and a fashionista to boot. Let's take a look.
Kerry pays close attention to details in beautiful gowns accented with embroidery, beads, and embellishments...




And as you can see Kerry is a total fan of scintillating colors like fuchsia....

Eye popping orange...

Punchy Pink...


And powder blue...


While she dabbles in color, blacks, whites and greys also play a huge part in her wardrobe...





Beautiful.
Want to recreate a Kerry Washington look for less? Try the following:

On the left: Sheer Rosebud Dress, $24.80, www.forever21.com.
Right Hand Side, Top to Bottom: 2.75" hoops in silver, $5, www.girlprops.com; Patent Clutch with Bow, $7.50, www.target.com; Kilty Flats, $60, www.stevemadden.com.
You're ready to go!
Always Remember: "Dress to Impress."

Great Job Suzie! Love Kerry Washington...
Anyway I also had to jump in to tell you about a new t-shirt line one of my colleagues, Janet Kim, recently created called Graey. She says she started her collection to, "incorporate couture details into affordable ready-to-wear." Her Spring '07 collection is comprised of, "tanks and tees embellished with a couture technique where lace is embroidered onto the fabric and the original fabric is cut away on the back to reveal what's underneath." Take a look:

Left to Right: Crown Tee, $88; Lace Tee, $110; Black Lace Tank, $55.
Tres chic.
Check out her whole collection (and shop!) at www.graeyny.com.
Smootches!

Overall I think that Kerry Washington has a great sense of style. Each dress works for her they all compliment her skin tone. Each dress is very elegant,and shows that she has class. When you want to look good you have to pay the price; you can't buy everything at the mall.What might not work for some may work well for others and, as any diva knows, beauty sometimes come with pain.
