I’ve got a girl crush and I am in no way ashamed. If you’ve ever watched any piece of Kerry Washington’s work you’ll know why in an instant. Not only is she one of the most beautiful people on this planet, but she’s one of the most talented as well.
If you’re not familiar with Washington, you might know her as Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal. She plays the high-profile Washington “fixer” who just happens to fall in love with the married President. If you haven’t seen it, you should start watching now. And if you’re looking for an example of Washington’s talent, you should take a look at her monologues from the show. INCREDIBLE.
And if television isn’t your thing and you’re more into movies, she has plenty of those to go around. Check her out in Ray and Django: Unchained, where she played wife to Jamie Foxx in both, or in the early 2000s hit Save the Last Dance. Regardless of what film you choose, I promise you’ll be impressed.
I am obsessed with Kerry Washington’s sense of style, as is most of the fashion world. I can’t say that I’ve ever seen an outfit that I didn’t like on her. She is absolutely stunning and I’m pretty certain she has the ability to wear a trash bag and still look like complete perfection. All you have to do is open up any weekly tabloid or fashion magazine and she’ll be right on top of the best-dressed list every week!
If none of these aspects put you half in love with Kerry Washington as I am, maybe her personality will do the trick. When watching her do panels for Scandal or her other pieces of work, she’s loud and peppy and always has a smile on her face! I can only imagine that she’s a person that makes everyone around her want to smile, and what’s a better trait in a person than that? Her charities include the Allstate Purple Purse Foundation which combats domestic violence, as well as the Boys & Girls club, and a Turnaround Arts, a government program to help low-performing schools through the use of the visual and performing arts.
Washington spends more of her time doing good for others than she spends on herself, and that is the true reason for my girl crush! If you can think of any reasons I didn’t list for why we love Kerry, let me know in the comments!
