Kerry Washington is beyond beautiful as the cover star of ELLE magazine (US) edition. The ‘Scandal’ star first came to our attention in major blockbuster movie ‘Save the Last Dance’ opposite Julia Stiles. Although she had a supporting role but there was just something so charming about Kerry.
Now, Kerry is one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood thanks to her current lead role on TV (Scandals) and her last major blockbuster movie, Quentin Trantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ opposite Jamie Foxx. The ever charming actress shares her appreciation on her current success with Elle (See some excerpts below), it also helps that she is very very fashionable which has meant being invited to the hottest events in the finest choice of clothes.
On her current success: “I’m the luckiest broad in Hollywood now, to be the lead actor on ‘Scandal’ and to be in the highest-earning Quentin Tarantino movie – I don’t get to ask for more.”
On getting red-carpet ready: “I found out I enjoy the process. All these people show up at my house, they all have kits, someone has dresses. And it’s like, Let’s have fun. It’s not all about me. We’re able to create stories on the red carpet.”
In this edition of Elle, Kerry is styled in casual luxe – a cross between basic casuals and high fashion – by Samira Nasar(stylist). Kerry was photographed by Horst Diekgerdes.
She really has come a long way since her first major movie role. The magazine would hit the newsstands in the US from May 21. Pick up your copy of Elle magazine in Nigeria in June.
