Kerry Washington might not have won big at the Emmys on Sunday, but she wowed on the red carpet in a gorgeous cream gown by Marchesa.

A piece from the Spring 2014 collection of the luxury fashion house, it won’t be available to other fashion fans until next year. That did not stop the Scandal star from snagging it right away for her big night.

“The moment I saw it on the runway, I said, ‘Send it to me,'” she told the press about the piece which recently debuted on New York Fashion Week runways.

Washington has made fashion news recently by being named the best dressed star by People magazine. She also graces the current issue of Glamour.

Yet, her failure to win at the Emmys this season was seen as a negative for some, that overshadowed even her glorious look on the red carpet of the television awards show.

There is still a positive twist, despite Washington’s loss.

Scandal actress Kerry Washington was nominated as outstanding lead actress in a drama series in the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards competition, but lost to Homeland star Claire Danes,” reports the International Business Times. “Many were anticipating Washington would win the award, which would have made her the first African-American actress to take home the hardware in the category. Even so, she was the first African-American star to get nominated for it in 18 years.”
