Style Crush: Kerry Washington

On ABC’s hit primetime drama “Scandal“, Kerry Washington plays Olivia Pope, a crisis manager within her own consulting firm. While Olivia often fixes many of the messy political problems in the White House, there is one thing she doesn’t need to fix: her personal style. For her great outfits both on screen and off, this week’s style crush is none other than the gorgeous Kerry Washington.

Whether she’s attending a presidential gala or working hard on the job, Oliva Pope’s ensembles never fail to grab viewers’ attention. Her seemingly effortless style and coordination is flawless and is even more noteworthy against the stern political backdrop of Capitol Hill. Kerry’s character really knows how to keep it trendy and professional; her pieces strike the perfect balance, creating flawless business casual looks.

In one episode, (Look 1) Kerry sports a blush colored Armani coat coupled with gray Gucci suede pumps and a Goyard tote. Amongst the usual sea of navy’s and black’s, Kerry’s jacket provides the right pop of color anchored by her neutral accessories. In another episode, (Look 2) Kerry dawns a Max Mara coat with a cream Prada satchel and Dorothy Gaspar gloves. The gloves serve as the perfect accent to complete the look while upgrading the preppy peacoat. So classic! Perhaps her most glamorous look was when Kerry’s character attended one of the numerous political parties (Look 3). She wore a sophisticated black-and-white Escada gown that was to die for. She couldn’t have looked any more stunning!
