Kerry Washington has stunned all of us recently in red, yellow and baby blue outfits, but she's not finished yet. The star must be trying to make her way through the rainbow because she just pulled a gorgeous new outfit out of her closet in a totally different color.

The Scandal actress showed off a caramel dress courtesy of ASTR the Label. The Angeles puff-sleeve gown (which you can get here for $164) features tying straps and a cutout design along the back. Washington paired the dress with some earrings and a bracelet from Aurate New York.

And if her summery look wasn't enough, Washington decided to throw a Beyoncé quote in her caption too. The 44-year-old actress wrote, “Brown Skin Girl,” which is the title of a track performed by Beyoncé, her daughter Blue Ivy, Saint Jhn and Wizkid for The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack.

We must not have been the only ones who were wowed by Washington's style. Loads of fellow celebs flooded the comments to show their love for the ensemble. Octavia Spencer commented a bunch of fire emojis, while Taraji P. Henson left a bunch of heart-eyed ones. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union called her “Pretty lady,” while Yvonne Orji said: “She cuteee.” Rachel Zoe might have put it best when she said, “Stunningly beautiful and aging backwards.”

Washington has been keeping quite busy as of late. The actress released her highly successful miniseries Little Fires Everywhere last year, and more recently, she's been working on her directorial skills, while also filming new projects.

We're just glad she still has time to post these killer outfits.
