Kerry Washington & 'Scandal' Cast Attend Vulture Festival After That Crazy Fall Finale!

Kerry Washington, Bellamy Young, and Tony Goldwyn hit the red carpet for the Scandal panel held during the Vulture Festival LA on Saturday (November 18) at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.

The actors were joined by co-stars Darby Stanchfield, Guillermo Diaz, Jeff Perry, Scott Foley, Cornelius Smith Jr., George Newburn, and Joe Morton.

The panel happened just days after the crazy fall finale episode that left the fate of one of the characters in question.

During the panel, Bellamy opened up about getting to see women in power on the show.

“[The show is] acclimating the country to seeing females in power,” Bellamy said (via THR). “I think the genesis was watching Quinn (Katie Lowes) become in charge of QPA…and being pregnant in the work place.… There are a lot of lady presidents [on TV] right now, and I think it matters. Shonda’s thing is always, if you can see it, you can be it.”

FYI: Kerry is wearing an Altuzarra dress.

Kerry Washington Reveals How She Deals with Today's Politics

Kerry Washington looks fresh faced and beautiful on the cover of Allure‘s November 2017 issue.

Here’s what the 40-year-old Scandal star had to share with the mag:

On people thinking she’s Olivia Pope being able to “handle it” in real life: “It happens All. The. Time. I mean, part of it is because they know I can connect them to Judy Smith, [the crisis manager] who the role is based on. But people call me to say, ‘I have this problem. Can I talk to you about it?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t even want to know! Just skip over me!’ But I know secrets.”

On how she handles this political landscape: “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.”

On her beauty indulgence: “Massages. I love them because they fall in that in-between for me: half beauty, half wellness. It’s something I do because I’m in heels a lot and I work really long hours. And I have a lot of pressures in my life. So massages are a good way for me to maintain my health and wellness, but also I feel like I’m doing something indulgent. And I’m a deep-tissue girl. I ask for the strongest massage therapist. Unravel me. Get in there.”
