Here’s what the 38-year-old Scandal star had to share with the mag:
On how her personal style varies from Scandal‘s Olivia Pope: “Red-Carpet Kerry wears a lot more color and pattern than Olivia does. She makes bold choices. When I was pregnant, I showed up at the SAG awards in a bare-midriff gown by Prada. I knew some people were going to hate it, but I thought it was super cute and really fun. Olivia, meanwhile, sticks to a more neutral palette in pastels by designers like Dior, Ferragamo, and Escada. But Olivia’s had a huge influence. After the first couple of episodes aired, people started posting on Twitter things like “I have a job interview today, and I’m trying to dress like Olivia Pope.”
On working mothers feeling guilty: “Women use this ‘guilt’ word a lot, but I’m not sure how I feel about it. I know why it’s the word that keeps coming up, but I can’t co-sign on it yet. There has got to be a better way. You can’t be all things to all people all the time. You have to experience your humanity, you have to know you are a limited vessel, and you can only do so much.”
On her post-baby fitness tricks: “Pilates, Tracy Anderson pregnancy DVDs, hiking, the elliptical machine and yoga.”
