Lady in red! Chopra was gone-with-the wind fabulous in Jason Wu, even taking a few twirls on the carpet. The Quantico actress, 34, was resplendent in a crimson one-shouldered gown with shoulder and waist cutouts that was custom-made by the designer. At an HBO afterparty, the smoldering star told Us that the look made her feel “like a princess.” That, and the fact that she was “the only one wearing it!”

While Chopra went bright, Washington, 39, outfitted her baby bump in a bold Brandon Maxwell number. The custom strapless gown, paired with Gianvito Rossi for Brandon Maxwell sandals, featured two bold cutouts underneath the bust. 

For an edgy dress, she had to go hard with the glam too. The Scandal star rocked a mane of wild, rock star–style curls for the night. “From the moment I saw Kerry’s Brandon Maxwell dress, I felt that it was minimal yet edgy with the peekaboo cutouts,” Washington’s hairstylist, Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, tells Stylish. “My inspiration was her baby bump. I still wanted to keep her look modern and fresh even though she’s expecting. I really wanted the hair to stand out — that’s why I styled it with a lot of texture but still show her face with a middle part.”
