Kerry Washington makes pregnancy look good.

The Scandal star flaunted her gorgeous bump and bod at the Essence "Black Women in Hollywood" luncheon on February 27.

Washington shined in a vibrant blue silk Calvin Klein Collection dress. The loose and drapey garment hung off of one shoulder and looked comfy, yet glamorous at the same time. While accenting her bump, the dress also showed off the star’s still smokin’ body. She is expecting her first child this spring, with husband Nnamdi Asomugha.

She completed the look with a pair of black Jimmy Choo pumps and an Emm Cuo clutch.

Washington recently revealed that she was a bit nervous when asking Michelle Obama if she watched Scandal. After all, the steamy show does take place at the White House, and centers around Washington’s character, Olivia Pope, having an affair with the President of the United States.

And although Washington and the First Lady have been friends for a while, the two have never discussed the star’s show. However, Obama did reveal that not only has she seen the show, but she’s a fan, too.

In fact, Twitter is abuzz with its love of the show:

In an interview, Mrs. Obama stated that she “binge watched” the show during a trip to Hawaii.

“I love Kerry Washington,” said the First Lady. “She is amazing, so it makes the show fun.”

Naturally, Washington was “super flattered and honored” to hear of the kind words.

As its name implies, Scandal is full of mischief, drama, and juicy content. Washington, who has received multiple award nominations for her role on the show, has alluded to even more nail-biting and jaw-dropping scenes and story lines in the future. She also promises that fans will be “on the edge of their seats.”

"It just keeps getting better and better," Washington teased of the remaining episodes in Season 3. "It's kind of nuts."
