After Kerry Washington’s beyond sexy red carpet maternity style (who could forget that cutout dress at the 2016 Emmys?), it’s no surprise that her post-baby style is just as hot, hot, hot. The mom-of-two stepped out for the 22nd annual Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday night in an Elie Saab mini with a sheer neckline just two months after giving birth.

Washington, who is nominated for two Critics’ Choice Awards for her HBO film Confirmation, showed off her toned legs in a long-sleeve black dress with a sheer plunging neckline, star motif, and a tulle skirt. She paired the sexy look with strappy stiletto sandals and an undone side braid, keeping her makeup soft to keep all eyes on that dress.

It looks like minis are the new black, as the 39-year-old made her post-baby red carpet return earlier this week in a low-cut floral Philipp Plein minidress.
