The 'Scandal' star dazzled in a sparkling gown.

Kerry Washington stepped out in a Marc Jacobs gown (straight from the designer's spring collection) on the red carpet at the 2015 Emmy Awards, held at the Microsoft Theater on Sunday (Sept. 20) in Los Angeles.

The actress is presenting at this evening's awards. Her co-star Khandi Alexander is nominated for the role of Maya Lewis on the ABC show. 

Styled by Erin Walsh, she donned an embroidered metallic dot lace three-quarter length sleeve v-neck gown with embellished shoulders, a degrade gold sequin scalloped hem and side slits.

Washington's ensemble is particularly exciting because he just showed his spring 2016 collection on Thursday, Sept. 17 at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York, meaning, Kerry and stylist Walsh snagged the newest hottest dress right off the runway.

Jacobs has rarely ever had a gown from his own eponymous collection walk the runway (though he had many a gown on the red carpet when he designed for Louis Vuitton). When his company recently hired celebrity wrangler Celine Khavarani away from many years at Prada, it did seem he’d be making a play for the red carpet — as reported first by THR. Now it’s clear he is, and it will be interesting to watch his own collection add lots of carpet-worthy evening — and who gets to wear them.
