Kerry Washington says she's shed her pregnancy weight in two very simple ways.

"I'm mostly working 16-hour days and spending a lot of time running after my little girl," the Scandal star told me at The Daily Front Row's Fashion Los Angeles Awards at the Sunset Tower Hotel.

We'll assume she's not doing much of that running after nine-month-old Isabelle in sky-high Christian Louboutin heels.

She was on hand at the awards to present Women's Shoe Designer of the Year to red-soled French legend.

"I famously wore my high heel Louboutins until I was 10 and a half months pregnant," Washington said with a laugh. "I was at the Oscars in my Louboutins wobbling. My mother said she didn't breath the entire time I presented at the Oscars because I was hugely pregnant in my Louboutins."

Washington reminded us of Louboutin's motto.

"He has famously said that there is no need for women to be comfortable," she said, again laughing. "He's said being comfortable, it's a like a relationship. You don't want to be comfortable in a relationship. You want a relationship full of passion. I love that."

Washington also wore Louboutins when she returned to the red carpet in June about two months after giving birth.

"I feel like I learned how to walk on a red carpet because of Christian Louboutin," she gushed. "The first time I was able to put on that sole, I was able to find that red carpet Kerry."
