Kerry Washington's Modern Cleopatra Look Deserved All the "Mat Talk" From Her Glam Squad

Kerry Washington's stunning Oscars afterparty look was worthy of all the mat talk it inspired. Ahead of Sunday night's Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty, the actress shared a hilarious clip of her glam squad taking a page out of Jerry's book from Cheer as they grabbed pom-poms and told her to "Slay, honey!" In the caption, she joked, "When @navarro_college_cheer isn't available, so your #GlamSquad 'mat talks' you as you head to the Vanity Fair #Oscars party (and they're kind of amazing)." The fashion fanfare was well-deserved, as Kerry's modern Cleopatra look by Zuhair Murad was truly a showstopper.

The sequin two-piece set featured intricate embellishments worthy of a ruler, and Kerry topped off her look with gold heels and eye-popping jewelry. Keep reading to take a look at Kerry Washington's gorgeous Oscars outfit from every angle, then see all of this year's best-dressed stars.
