Kerry Washington Covers 'Flare' October 2013

Kerry Washington Covers 'Flare' October 2013

Kerry Washington is a super fashionista in a Miu Miu coat on the cover of Flare magazine’s October 2013 issue.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Scandal star had to share with the mag:

On rooting for the mistress on Scandal: “A lot of people have had an affair. Most people haven’t had an affair with the president of the United States. But they can relate to it… I had girlfriends calling me from week three [of Scandal] going, ‘I’m really uncomfortable. Why am I rooting for the mistress? I’m a married woman!’ And I would say, ‘It’s OK, it’s OK.’?… There are some ways you want to be Olivia Pope and some ways you want to do a major intervention for her.”

On why she loves acting: “I love those moments that are few and far between, where you’re so deeply, deeply invested in an imaginary world that you truly forget yourself for a little while, and the only reality that exists is the reality of that scene. That’s like drugs to me. And it is hard to find that high, but that’s what you work for.”

On her love of fashion: “The red carpet is good marketing. When you work so hard, you should stand behind the project in a way that magnetizes people. So I, like a good, only-child student, studied fashion and decided I was going to play that game, and fell in love with it, and with the artists and designers.”

FYI: Kerry is wearing a Sydney Evan ring.

    Why does Kerry look better on Scandal than she does in these magazines?

  • Johnson

    she just doesn’t do anything for me. Maybe it’s her giant forehead, manly hands and feet or maybe it’s her weird looking lips.. she’s also really really short too. I will say that she has pretty good taste in nice pointy heels though.

  • Jamie Girl

    I think Kerry looks terrific! She is having one heck of a year. Can’t wait for Scandal to return. Go Kerry!

  • BPositive

    Kerry always looks so chic and beautiful. I definitely admire this well educated, confident actress.

  • Hope

    Love Kerry in the entertaining show Scandal. She also played such a strong character in Django Unchained.

  • Ha

    She’s pretty but this dress/look/style she has in this cover is just…. horrendous!

  • right

    why is she everywhere?

  • snap crackle pop

    @right: She has a hit show right now.

    I’m not in love with something in these pictures- maybe hair and makeup? I agree with @plez: She looks better on her show and on red carpet.

    You can tell- every time she opens her mouth- she was well educated before pursuing acting…
