New York: Actress Kerry Washington likes it when her style team experiments with different looks for her when she attends red carpet events.

The 36-year-old says her favourite red carpet attire is a white ball gown by Giles Deacon that she wore in January to the London premiere of `Django Unchained`, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"Dressing for the red carpet is a creative endeavour, working with a team to achieve the final look is fun. My favourite was the Giles gown I wore to the London premiere of `Django Unchained`. I fell in love with it instantly," Washington told In Style magazine.

"I don`t usually get nervous before a red carpet appearance. When it comes to clothes, I try to make decisions I feel good about," she added.

Away from the spotlight at red carpet galas, Washington`s regular style comprises an amalgamation of high street and designer wear.

"My off-duty style is really relaxed - comfort is a priority. I like to take sensible classic pieces and throw in trendy elements that are a little more fun. I love MiH Jeans and anything from Topshop - that store is such an essential US import! I`m also a huge fan of Kurt Geiger shoes. Overall, the US high street is nothing compared to the UK," she said.
