Kerry Washington Stuns On The Cover Of Allure

Kerry Washington is the latest cover star for Allure, and her pictures both on the cover and throughout the magazine are absolutely beautiful. In her photos, Washington sports a number of different looks, all which include her hair sported naturally. She told the publication, “I like to wear my natural texture, especially now because I have children and I want them to know that their hair is perfect as it is. They don’t have to change it or straighten it. They can, but they don’t have to.”

Her show “Scandal” is currently in its sixth and final season, and Kerry told Allure that playing Olivia Pope has prepared her for her new role as a producer, most recently for HBO’s “Confirmation.” She explained, “It’s kind of like being the Olivia Pope of television. You get to change people’s lives and fix problems and be grounded and assertive and of service. So it really is a lot of things that I felt Olivia has taught me to do in pretend and then to apply those skills when I produce.”

She also comments on how the ridiculousness in the news effects her everyday life, and that sometimes she can’t even handle to bear it. Kerry says, “I have to dip in and dip out, because it suffocates me. Like, I become unable to function, so it’s a tricky balance between staying aware and also staying connected to a sense of hope and productivity and showing up for life.”
