When it comes to style stars, Kerry Washington is definitely one of the brightest.

The “For Colored Girls” actress dazzles us with her penchant for sequins, bold colors and head-turning silhouettes (having a phenomenal figure doesn’t hurt either).

Washington, who is set to star in the upcoming ABC series “Scandal,” is not only a fashion wearer–she’s also a fashion lover. The Bronx native is often spotted perfectly perched front row at New York Fashion Week. And her admiration has definitely paid off.

The demure ensembles Washington wore when she first hit Hollywood have given way to daring looks that have landed her on countless best-dressed lists.

Here’s a look at Washington’s amazing style evolution as we wish her a very happy 35th birthday!
