Silver screen stunner Kerry Washington covers the December issues of LA Times Magazine and Elle Magazine.



Her role as a take-no-prisoners political maven made her a prime-time force. This month, as Quentin Tarantino's latest leading lady, Kerry Washington is redefining the look of a powerful woman—and it doesn't include a suit.

Kerry Washington has been working the covers for the past few months, appearing on the cover's of the LA Times Magazine, Elle and Essence next month, has redefined the look of the powerful woman in the 10-page spread in Elle.

She’s the first African-American woman to headline a major network drama since 1974. Her show, ABC’s sexy political thriller Scandal, averaged 9.1 million viewers in its first season and is well into a nail-biting second. 

Washington easily could have gone for the power-bitch trope, but she’s developed a different portrayal of a woman in charge, even down to the subdued colors Olivia wears. “I chose pale pastels and earth tones—no black or navy suits. She spends her days saying things people don’t want to hear. She has to balance that by wearing things that make people feel safe and comfortable.” (Such all-woman wardrobe choices also help fuel the will-they-or-won’t-they—oh, wait, they already did—sexual tension between Olivia and the married POTUS, played by Tony Goldwyn.)

And to add to the windfall, Quentin Tarantino chose her as the female lead in this month’s spaghetti-westernized view of the antebellum South, Django Unchained.


According to "On Common Ground News -
Gary Washington is proud of his celebrity cousin, Kerry Washington, who endorsed him in his bid this summer for Rockdale [GA] Superior Court judge.
