Kerry Washington Paired a Blazer and Skirt With a Glittering Belly Chain for the Golden Globes

I don't understand it, but I love it.

It's the start of a new decade, and Kerry Washington is ready. Her look at the 2020 Golden Globes on Sunday, Jan. 5 was bold and brilliant: The former Scandal star wore a black blazer and a matching silk skirt with a thigh-high split—and decided to eschew a top altogether, wearing instead a glittery silver knotted chain that stretched from her shoulders down to her hips. It was, as the kids say, a Look.

Washington is presenting at the Globes, though she isn't nominated this year (she's been nominated twice in the past—once in 2017, for the Anita Hill-inspired movie Confirmation and once in 2014 for her hit show Scandal). For the red carpet, she paired her silver chain ensemble with a ruby lip, and wore her hair in a sleek, shoulder-grazing lob. She added strappy silver sandals with their own glittery chain detailing to match her belly chain, and finished the look with silver jewelry from Marli New York.

Here's the full look, including the shoes:
