Kerry Washington always does a red carpet justice.  Yesterday, she pulled double duty by slaying two in one day.

She was honored at the 2015 Baby2Baby Gala presented by MarulaOil & Kayne Capital Advisors Foundation at 3LABS in Culver City, California. The gorgeous "Scandal" star went for the feminine dramatics with a full ball gown by Giambattista Valli made of floral embellishments and black sheer chiffon:

The fabulous mommy to 1-and-a half-year-old Isabella is a major supporter of the Baby2Baby organization which supplies families in need with essential baby gear and clothing for their children up to age 12.  The organization reaches over 50,000 children per year!

She kept it sexy in a chic black turtle neck dress to hug those curves and show off those gams she's been working so hard on after having little Titan (who just turned 1!).  Love the look for her.

Rapper Ja Rule and his wife Aisha Atkins hit the event to support Kerry Washington as well.  The twosome just kicked off their new MTV reality show "Follow the Rules" with their whole family.  Now, they're making the Hollywood rounds.  Hip Hop has definitely grown up...

Before her extra dramatic entrance into Baby2Baby, Kerry popped up alongside her "Scandal" co-stars at the Max Azria x Shondaland event elsewhere in L.A.

She kept her floral theme but this time went for a white and nude palette.  Kerry's embroidered double layer floral dress was paired with a pair of radiant nude pumps as she posed it up with co-stars Portia de Rossi and Katie Lowes.

Gorge.  The event was all about beauty with Kerry posting:

@maxmara & @Allure_magazine party to celebrate the beauty teams (hair, make up & wardrobe!) from all the @ShondalandTV shows! Honoring the magicians who work behind the scenes. #ScandalFam #shondaland #Love #PrettyCommittees

The Queen of Shondaland herself, Shonda Rhimes, popped up in a floral cocktail dress to show off her major weight loss transformation.  Work Shonda!


Meanwhile, Kelly Rowland pulled double duty as well:

She rocked a super sexy look as she made her way to the YWCA Greater Los Angeles Annual Rhapsody Ball at the Beverly Wilshire this weekend.  The singer posed it up with her trainer Jeanette Jenkins, Jeanette's other client, Tia Mowry, and BET President Debra Lee.

Yes Tia!  A simple black-and-white look can be made to look super chic with the right shoe (Tia's is Gianvito Rossi) and right pieces (Tia's rocking and shirt and jeans, both by Juan Carlos Obando.

And speaking of Tia:

She's another one who pulled double duty this weekend.  Rocking a Peter Pilotto colorful dress and Steve Madden shoes, the (former) "Instant Mom" star brought her adorable son Cree to the premiere of Disney Channel's 'The Lion Guard: Return Of The Roar' at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California yesterday.

So cute!

Christina Milian also arrived at the event as she's currently a star on Disney's property -- ABC -- on "Grandfathered."  An embellished cropped jacket with exaggerated shoulders paired with jeans and heels can work wonders for an elevated casual look.

ABC stars Marsai Martin and Miles Brown took some time away from playing sister and brother on "Blackish" to hit up the fun premiere.

Garcelle Beauvais lives on a red carpet, but at least she looks fab doing so.

Fashion designer Rachel Roy threw on a white blazer over her denim overalls.  How do we feel about it?

Fab times all around!
