Kerry Washington Reveals Her Best Oscars Accessory Ever

Hint: It involved the 'Scandal' star's special plus one at last year's Oscars.

At the 2014 Oscars, Kerry Washington brought a very special plus one — her yet-to-be-born baby girl who was covered in a one-of-a-kind Jason Wu creation, marking the designer's debut on Academy Awards red carpet.

The Scandal star is returning to the big show on Sunday as a presenter, but while her bundle of joy likely won't be with her, she says daughter Isabelle (her first child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha) is still the most precious plus one around.

"I kept saying last year that she was the best accessory anybody could have and she's even better on the outside," Washington (in Sophia Kah and SJP Collection shoes with Clare Vivier bag) told Pret-a-Reporter at Alfre Woodard's pre-Oscars dinner at the Beverly Wilshire honoring Ava DuVernay and Gugu Mbatha-Raw and sponsored by Elizabeth Taylor's White Diamonds Lustre and Piper-Heidseick with transportation by Audi.

And now that her baby is on the outside, Washington admits she her fashion choices have changed.

"I just keep remembering last year when I had to do everything custom because I had another human being inside me," she laughed. "I've had a few more options this year."

About those options: Has she decided what she'll wear on Sunday?

"I may have," she teased, with a smile.

And we may believe that whatever designer creation she's decided on, it'll be expectedly showstopping.
