Fortunately, she was able to do so with the help of a one-shoulder Elie Saab Couture dress.
The Spring/Summer 2022 look featured oversized floral embellishments on the shoulders and hips, with a long train trailing behind it. The bodice area of her mini dress had diagonal pleats that complemented her figure. To really show off her ensemble, Washington pulled her hair up into a high bun and wore delicate (but sparkling) jewelry from Bvlgari and Maison Boucheron. She chose a High Jewelry necklace in white gold with a cushion diamond as well as earrings and a High Jewelry diamond ring. For those who took a closer look at Washington’s entire outfit, you’ll notice the way she styled it then different from the way the couture dress descended on the Elie Saab catwalk.
