Kerry Washington for Lucky December 2013

kerry_washington_lucky_magazine_2013

Kerry Washington snags her seventh cover of the year following her Ebony (March 2013), Elle (June 2013), Vanity Fair (August 2013), Glamour (October 2013), Flare (October 2013) and Essence (November 2013) covers, now appearing on the cover of the December/January issue of Lucky magazine.

Shot by Patrick Demarchelier, the ‘Scandal’ actress looks radiant and incredibly happy wearing a Christian Dior Resort 2014 frock.

While much ado has been made about the cover and the excessive photoshopping of the beloved star, Kerry herself appears to have no issues with it, proudly making it her avatar for her twitter account.
In the mag she talks about the dangers of the media, living low-key and working in Hollywood.

Here are some extracts from the mag, which hits newsstands November 19.

On the dangers of the media: “Even for me, I think it’s a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show. I know that I am not going to look like ['Scandal' character] Olivia when I wake up and go to the bathroom at 4 o’clock in the morning. On the set, it’s somebody’s job to follow me around all day with spackle.”

On living low-key: “I can run into Madewell and J.Crew and be good for a few months. I’m not a formal person. I have a lot of jeans. And I have tons of sneakers, whether they’re the custom Nikes that you can make online or the Isabel Marant wedges. That’s the Bronx in me, for sure.”

On working in Hollywood: “It’s a miracle to even work in this industry. I didn’t become an actress to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story.”

On keeping it real: “People always come up to me and say, ‘Oh, I want Olivia’s closet,’ and I’m like, ‘Me too!’ Even for me, I think it’s a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show.”

Kerry Washington In Victoria, Victoria Beckham – Saturday Night Live

Kerry Washington In Victoria, Victoria Beckham - Saturday Night Live

Kerry Washington was the guest host of ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend, and she wasted no time helping to poke fun at the diversity issue on the sketch comedy programme, playing several famous women including Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey.

Following her promo tour for ‘Scandal’, we found ourselves in unfamiliar territory – disliking her looks; but following the announcement of her pregnancy last week everything fell into place.

Now, Kerry is in a position to celebrate her bump rather than hiding it so she’s back on track, showcasing her maternity style wearing a sweet Victoria, Victoria Beckham Spring 2014 long-sleeved patterned frock with a flared pleated skirt.

I love the raspberry lip colour here. It’s not only complementary to her dress, but also enhances her radiant glow.

2014 is going to be a very interesting time for maternity style, with two of our favourite stars, Olivia and Kerry, working the red carpet with their baby bumps.

Kerry Washington In Vince Camuto – Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women Event

Kerry Washington In Vince Camuto - Variety's 5th Annual Power of Women Event

With her hit show ‘Scandal’ breaking season premiere rating records, Kerry Washington was in very good spirits while taking to the red carpet for Variety’s 5th Annual Power of Women event held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Friday afternoon, where she was honoured for her work supporting the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities.

The actress who has failed to wow us this week, manages to get back into my good graces wearing a Vince Camuto cocktail dress.

Her flared jacquard dress with gold gilded polka dots was styled with studded Christian Louboutin ‘Malabar Hill’ pumps, a tan Nancy Gonzalez clutch and a selection of jewels from Soffer Ari, Ocnarf Sairutsa, Joan Hornig and a Dana Rebecca Designs.

A half-up, half-down ‘do and neutral makeup completed her look. Hopefully this is the start of her comeback.

Kerry Washington In Max Mara & Brood – ‘The Daily Show With Jon Stewart’

Kerry Washington In Max Mara & Brood - 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart'

Kerry Washington made a guest appearance on ‘The Daily Show With Jon Stewart’ to promote the start of season 3 of ‘Scandal’, which aired in the US yesterday evening.

The actress arrived wearing a loose-fitted Max Mara red dress styled with a gold pendant necklace, Christian Louboutin snakeskin pumps and a black clutch. Following her four looks from the previous day, this look had me believing that she hasn’t lost her mojo.

That was until I saw the second look.

Once again she wore an unflattering, aging look which does nothing for her.

This Brood Fall 2013 printed drop-waist frock will do nothing to dispel the rumours that she may be with child. The only thing I like about this look is her chartreuse Jimmy Choo ‘Mill’ pumps.

Kerry Washington In Tory Burch – Good Morning America

Kerry Washington In Tory Burch - Good Morning America

Still making a flurry of rounds in support of the third season of her hit show, ‘Scandal,’ Kerry Washington swung by ‘Good Morning America’ at the Times Square studios in New York City this morning.

For this occasion, the actress wore a loose silhouette with Tory Burch’s ‘Kirby’ dress, detailed in diamond-shape embellishments. The soft ballet-pink colour was charming, but I would have preferred the frock a few inches shorter.

She accessorized with heavier, dark-navy pumps, an Alexander Wang nude ‘Prisma Skeletal’ clutch and oversized shades.

Her latest ‘Scandal’ promo circuit hasn’t produced many positively memorable fashion moments. How does this look fare?
