Is Kerry Washington pregnant? The Scandal star's flowing Emmys dress triggered the obligatory speculation on Twitter, but is it more than just a rumor?
Kerry's Marchesa gown and its empire waist hid her usually tiny figure, setting off a frenzy of “is she or isn’t she pregnant?” from Scandal fans on Twitter.
Rumors also circulated when Kerry married Nnamdi Asomugha in a private wedding in June and - some believe anyway - started hiding her figure.
Kerry’s petite body is normally shown in sexy, curve-hugging dresses, so if she opts for a looser, tummy-hiding style, it marks a change of style.
The gown also has a strappy detail over a gold bralette that emphasizes a fuller bustline than Kerry usually has. Perfect to disguise a baby bump.
Or she could just like the dress, which is the more likely scenario.
The 36-year-old Washington is very private, so don't expect her to elaborate or comment on pregnancy rumors if they're false - or if they're true for that matter.
As low profile as she is, we wouldn't be surprised if she gave birth before we knew she was even pregnant, even if a (real) baby bump might give it away.
Long story short: We have no idea, but probably not pregnant.
She looks fabulous regardless, however.
