Since last spring, Erin and Kerry have collaborated to create special fashion moments on the red carpet. It’s great to see that it’s a team effort and they get along so well. KW’s red carpet swag is like no other!

How the dynamic duo met:

New York City-based stylist Erin Walsh got her start assisting Vogue editor Phyliss Posnick. She was introduced to Django Unchained star Kerry Washington last spring by Elle fashion director Samira Nasr

Erin Walsh on her top Kerry Washington look:

“The pony dress!” says Walsh, referring to the theatrical white horse-patterned Giles gown that Washington wore to Django’s London premiere. “It was Django-inspired,” says Washington. “We always ask ourselves whether something’s a fashion moment — and we definitely like to think outside the box.” Other major style moments included the actress’ pink-and-aqua Oscar de la Renta with a rise-and-fall hemline at the NAACP Image Awards and her Oscar stunner: a custom coral-red Miu Miu gown with a heavy dose of Swarovski crystals.

Kerry Washington on working with Erin Walsh:

"We’re very collaborative. I feel like we were fashion twins separated at birth. We come up with stories for a particular season or a particular press tour."

Erin Walsh on working with Kerry Washington:

Walsh says that story is told with their choices.

"In terms of narrative — that goes into silhouette, texture, cut — making distinctions and having each moment," she says. "We use that word a lot: ‘moment.’ "

Adds Washington, “Is it a fashion ‘moment’ or not?”

Kerry on the gorgeous Giles gown she wore to the Django Unchained London premiere:

This huge, gorgeous gown with these horses that I wore for the London premiere of Django [Unchained],” Washington says. “Because the movie is all about Jamie [Foxx] saving me on these white horses, it seemed perfect in every way.”’
