Kerry Washington spent the evening getting gorgeous for a cause. Check out the Purple Purse event host inside, plus Jada Pinkett Smith keeping it fab on the "Gotham" red carpet....
The Allstate Foundation launched The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge, a fundraising campaign for charities benefiting domestic violence survivors. And Kerry Washington, rocking a strapless green Alexander McQueen gown and purple Casadei pumps, was on hand at The Glasshouses in NYC to host the event. Organizations and individuals can donate $10 or more for a chance to win a stylish purple purse. And the money goes to a much needed cause.
Gorgeous look for her! By the way, only 10 days until the new season of "Scandal"!
Elsewhere in Manhattan last night, Jada Pinkett Smith stepped out on the red carpet at the NY Public Library to celebrate her new role as Catwoman on "Gotham":
She rocked a Blumarine dress with a gold lapel that we're not too sure that we're loving. And paired the look with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
But she looked fierce, overall, as always.
