Kerry Washington is absolutely stunning as she graces the cover of Vanity Fair’s August issue. The Scandal star shows off her curves in a sexy white one-piece bathing suit, while doused in a swimming pool.
The 36-year-old’s pouty lips are highlighted with a pop of red, while her eyes are smoldering and intense. “The most intriguing star — The most intriguing show,” the headline reads.
Washington who remains private about her personal life, dished to the publication about her personal life on screen as Scandal’s Olivia Pope.
“What I think is cool about Olivia is that she fully owns being a woman. There’s a very nurturing sense of ‘I’m going to take care of you—don’t worry about it. I’m gonna be your mom in this situation,” she told VF.
“One of the most profound things for me about the show is the number of white women of all ages who come up to me and say, ‘I want to be Olivia Pope,” she shared.
“It’s especially profound in a place like South Africa … The fact that white women can see this woman of color as an aspirational character is revolutionary, I think, in the medium of television. I don’t think white women would feel that way about Olivia if her identity as a woman, period, wasn’t first in their mind,” Washington explained.
Be sure to pick up Vanity Fair’s August issue which hits stands July 9.
