Kerry Washington embodies autumn chic on the cover of Canadian fashion magazine Flare. For her October 2013 cover story and spread, shot by photographer Ruven Afanador, the Scandal star dons the finest threads the season has to offer. She speaks with Caroline McCloskey about her many successes to date, her marriage, and her upbringing.
On Olivia Pope:
When people come up to me and express their love for [Olivia], I understand it, because I read the scripts and I feel the same way: ‘Wow, what a complicated, three-dimensional, interesting, flawed, inspirational human being’.
On attending an elite girls school as a child:
The people spoke differently and dressed differently and ate differently and walked differently and smelled different; everything was different. It really started in me this curiosity [about] how people express identity through culture.
On the fashion front, Kerry looks beautiful in designer duds from Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu, Dolce & Gabanna, Dior, and Maison Martin Margiela. You can read the entire story over at Flare.
