Kerry Washington

Actress Kerry Washington switched outfits three times while doing promotional appearances in New York City on Wednesday. Kerry, who gained fame as savvy Washington, D.C. fixer Olivia Pope on TV's Scandal, says she took a few cues (and a free wardrobe) from her on-screen persona and applied them to her own life.

"I've learned a lot from Olivia through the years," Washington said today on ABC's Good Morning America. "She's much more courageous than I think I am. She's very bold and confident and she feels like there's always a solution that you should never give up and I feel like I've learned some of that from her."

Kerry reflected Olivia's working woman persona in her choice of polka dots, bold prints and vivid colors that clashed beautifully.

    Sometimes she gives off a Lisa Bonet vibe.....

  • cherrypie

    The hair and the outfit in the middle is cute but the rest looks like something from 1982. Kerry has always been a bit different.

  • MsVAllDay

    Love the outfits, hate the hair!

    Kerry Washington's husband Nnamdi Asomugha, One of the stars of the Amazon Studios film 'Crown Heights".(that he was absolutely BRILLIANT in) I attended a private screening of a few months ago and he also was in attendance is a surprisingly VERY well educated,articulate young man. It's not everyday I see a black man so intelligent and well spoken like him. He totally impressed me to the max.

  • KcoolMuziq

    That's not a nice thing to say about a black woman that has had a hit drama show for SEVEN SEASONS. SMH

  • MsPam

    I’m sure your lips stay moist for all the kissing up you do for celebrities.?

  • TheOwley

    OT Ms. Sandra, James Toback is off the hook and so is pederast Kevin Spacey apparently, but Cosby's case is being pursued with great zeal and no evidence from what I hear. What's your research saying.

  • bhavana

    What does that have to do with her looking old and tired?

  • Logan Roberts

    I like the polka dot pic.

  • ?Royalty?

    Her hubby is soooooo fine, but I wondered if they were set up by a matchmaker because everybody knows Kerry was down with the swirl for the longest.?

    I love the polka dot dress. I would totally rock that with some stiletto boots- not those white shoes- and maybe a short ultra feminine motorcycle jacket.

  • TMW

    Everything but the white shoes. Just not a fan of white dress shoes in general.

  • TMW

    Saw the movie. I thought it was very good, and he was surprisingly very good in the movie. I appreciate how they keep their private life private.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I love her face structure.

  • hottlanta

    OMG love it. A woman actually wearing some clothes. Ms. Washington you betta werk.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I hate her hair and those white shoes.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Staring at Keri's extra long face....something is waaay off!!

  • Alextra Ballard

    I don't own any white shoes. Not even sneakers. I too have never been a fan of white shoes

  • Harley

    It's her mouth! She's always had a horse look

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Kerry looks and dresses better on Scandal.


    I always wonder why celebs never give credit to their stylists its so lame that they dont give the glam team credit.... The costume designer for scandal had it going on.
    I like the fact that Kerry Washington has normal clothes on even though its kind of plain jane meets a lot of patterns.

  • The Chosen One

    she has that Steve Harvey look by the mouth, as if their breath smells. not a Kerry Washington fan. i loved the movie Django, but the only thing she did in that movie was holler and scream all the time. they could have left her out of the script.

  • CocoBabe88

    My he has a nice tongue.

  • CocoBabe88

    She has vaneers and they're doing something weird. It's been irritating me all season.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

  • Malcom Flex

  • Coy little wink
