Looking fierce, Kerry Washington!

The Scandal star made her runway debut during the Project Runway show at New York Fashion Week Friday, where she also served as a guest judge on the season 12 finale.

The stunning star strutted her stuff in a pair of sky-high red patent pumps and a floral Stella McCartney dress, flaunting her first-time modeling skills while flashing a giant smile on the catwalk.

In addition to her runway display, Washington joined Project Runway judges Nina Garcia, Zac Posen and Heidi Klum in the front row to critique collections from the show's season 12 finalists.

This is the Emmy nominee's third go-round as a guest judge, having appeared on the panel in season nine and season six.

"BACKSTAGE at the @ProjectRunway SEASON FINALE show for #FashionWeek SOOOOOOO EXCITED! #HereComesTheJudge LOL," the fashionista enthusiastically posted on her Twitter page.

She also commented that her sexy Stella McCartney dress was one of her "faves."

In July, the actress secretly wed San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, and she recently opened up to Glamour magazine about why she's stayed so tight-lipped to the twosome's "I Do's."

"I learned through experience that it doesn't work for me to talk about my personal life," she told the mag. "I'm walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you. But I'm going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold."

She also recently stunned on the cover Flare magazine, in which she shared her love of fashion.

"The red carpet is good marketing," she admitted. "When you work so hard, you should stand behind the project in a way that magnetizes people. So I, like a good, only-child student, studied fashion and decided I was going to play that game, and fell in love with it, and with the artists and designers." 

And now she's a runway vet!
