Which magazine cover is Kerry Washington not on right now? She is currently on the cover of the October issues of Marie Claire magazine South Africa and Elle magazine South Africa. This girl is blazing a hot trail right now with the success of her hit TV Drama, Scandal, which in South Africa we know as The Fixer. I read the article on the Marie Claire magazine and I love how Kerry is embracing her success because of how rare it is for an African-American actress to be playing a lead role in a riveting TV drama. She is choosing to focus more on women’s issues versus race. Once again she barely mentions her marriage still choosing to keep her private life private.
This week Kerry was named PEOPLE magazine’s best dressed woman for 2013. It’s safe to say that Kerry Washington has an amazing year! Below are a few of her looks:
The gorgeous Kerry Washington is on the cover of Elle Magazine in the US. Most black women struggle to be on the covers of the high-end glossies and for someone like Kerry it is long overdue. Her hit show The Fixer is back on our screens next Monday on M-Net at 20:30, cannot wait! Here’s what she had to say:
On her success:
“I’m the luckiest broad in Hollywood now. To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie I don’t get to ask for more.”
On a career she thought she’d have:
“I imagined I’d be a clinical psychologist, with a focus on how performance shapes identity. I’d figure out ways to use role-playing in the healing of people.”
On getting ready for the red carpet:
“I found out I enjoy the process. All these people show up at my house, they all have kits, someone has dresses. And it’s like, let’s have fun. It’s not all about me. We’re able to create stories on the red carpet.”
Solange Knowles released an EP (Extended Play, larger than a single shorter than a full album) in November and has released the first single titled Losing You. She shot the music video for the song in Cape Town when she was here last year to shoot the cover for Elle Magazine. I love the video, it’s so retro and Solange’s sound is definitely miles apart from her sister Beyonce’s sound. I think she is finally finding her voice. I love the song and have been playing it over and over in my car. Enjoy!
