Kerry Washington hits the carpet while attending the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Launch event on Thursday (September 24) in New York City.
The 38-year-old Scandal actress was joined at the event by her pal Alicia Keys, who she shared a big hug with on the carpet. Also stepping out were Robin Roberts and The Bachelorette‘s Andi Dorfman.
Kerry spoke to E! News at the event about her character Olivia’s relationship with Fitz on Scandal season five.
“You know, in a lot of shows when the central love relationship finally comes together, that’s the end of the show, which I was really nervous about when I read our finale last year,” Kerry said. “I was like, ‘Do we get a season five? Do we not get a season five?’ But I think it’s more like in life, that when our relationship begins, that’s the beginning, not the end.”
“They get to discover what that means, what’s it like with all that tension of not being able to be together,” she added. “What will it be like for them?”
FYI: Kerry is wearing a Prabal Gurung dress and Manolo Blahnik shoes.
