Did Kerry Washington Pull A Last Minute Oscar Switch?

Kerry Washington‘s refreshingly bright Miu Miu frock at the Academy Awards last week landed her among our Oscars faves. But now, reports that the Django Unchained star pulled a last minute switch, which seems to be a recurring topic of conversation at awards shows this season, have us wondering about her original red carpet intention: apparently a Marchesa gown designed for her by Georgina Chapman herself.

The murmurs of “Scandal!” are stemming from the fact that Chapman is married to Hollywood bigwig Harvey Weinstein, and the Weinstein Company produced the very film for which Washington had show up in support of. We weren’t initially surprised to see her in Miu Miu since the label is frequently one of her go-tos, but it seems like a pretty daring snub, if the rumors are true.

Then again, at least Washington’s flip-flop yielded a positive final result… As opposed to, say, Anne Hathaway’s?

See more shots of the gown below, and tell us how you think it would stack up against this mythical Marchesa.
