Kerry Washington was among a handful of actresses to wear a bright color on the runway — Best Supporting Actress nominees Sally Field and Jackie Weaver also wore red, along with Jennifer Aniston — but the Django Unchained co-star wore it best. Washington's coral red Miu Miu strapless gown with an embellished bodice really stood out amid the other bland gowns. "The slight nod to the '60s was perfect, as was the color. It was both fashion forward and refreshing," Peck said.
