Taraji P Henson is having a great awards season, she won an award for outstanding actress in a Drama series for her role in Empire. 

Our Best dressed for the evening as selected by our Fashion and Beauty Director Mbali Soga, was Scandal star Kerry Washington. She wore a tuxedo inspired dress which was different from the average ball gown on the red carpet. The Scandal star carried a box clutch and kept her jewellery to a minimum, wearing just a pair of diamond studded earrings and her wedding ring. Kerry swept her dark hair into an updo and finished off her look with smoky eye make-up and pink lipstick.
