Kerry Washington rocked a very leggy look in Texas on Saturday when she brought ‘main b****’ energy to South by Southwest (SXSW)
The Emmy winner, 46 — who recently wore two stunning outfits for the Today show this week — commanded attention in her olive green stiletto boots, short shorts and an oversized suede shirt.
Washington was in the Lone Star State to promote her new Hulu show UnPrisoned, attending a SXSW symposium on the series, in which she stars as the daughter of a man who has been released from prison following his latest 17-year sentence.
It was a busy day at the festival, as stars including her costar Delroy Lindo, Elizabeth Olsen, Jesse Plemons and Lily Rabe also walked the red carpet.
In an Instagram video of her modeling the show-stopping outfit, Kerry vamped in front of the camera and told her seven millions followers that she was, ‘a f***ing main b****.’

‘We’re here for this energy,’ wrote Hulu’s official instagram handle, while the account for UnPrisoned commented, ‘Everything’s bigger in Texas! Especially the main b**** energy.’
Washington’s chic and sexy look was from the luxury Swiss fashion house Bally, and she accessorized with simple gold hoop earrings.
The fashionable actress wore her lustrous hair back in a sleek ponytail and flaunted an edgy manicure.
Kerry was joined at the symposium by her costar Delroy Lindo, 70, who plays her newly released father in UnPrisoned.
Other core cast members accompanied the pair, including Tracy McMillan, Faly Rakotohavana, Jordyn McIntosh and Marque Richardson.
In addition to the discussion for UnPrisoned, which dropped Friday on Hulu, SXSW also featured a screening for the upcoming true-crime series Love & Death.
Elizabeth Olsen, 34, attended in a flattering red dress, while her costar Lily Rabe stunned in a sheer top and white satin pants.
The limited HBO show will recount the gruesome murder of small-town Texas housewife Betty Gore (Rabe), whose husband was having an affair with her killer — friend and neighbor, Candy Montgomery (Olsen).
Gore’s cheating husband is played by Jesse Plemons, 34, who showed up at the screening looking cool and casual in blue jeans and a light brown leather jacket.

The first trailer for Love & Death was released last month, showing Olsen fully inhabiting the role of a churchgoing mother who would eventually pickup an ax and murder her friend in 1980.
‘Something has been bothering me a little,’ Olsen says in the trailer. ‘I have done all the things a wife is supposed to do. The house, the meals… Where is the payback?’
Written by David E. Kelley and premiering on April 27, the show is another chilling adaptation of Candy Montgomery’s disturbing tale, who was portrayed by Jessica Biel last year in the titular Hulu series Candy.
‘We cannot imagine a more perfect artist to play the leading role of Candy than Elizabeth Olsen,’ said Kevin Beggs, Chairman of Lionsgate Television Group. ‘Her talent, charisma and energy can bewitch audiences like no other.’
