Kerry Washington Wore A Bedazzled Chest Harness On The Red Carpet

It was a very sexy — yet totally elegant — way to marry suiting and bondage-inspired jewelry. It's not the first time we've seen a harness on the red carpet, though. Last year, Rihanna, Michael B. Jordan, and Timothée Chalamet all set the internet aflame with their own harness-inspired moments, and we're thrilled to see…
