steal her style: kerry washington



Guys. We really need to talk. I am 100% officially addicted to Scandal. Warning: if you aren’t watching it, I might be judging you right now. WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?! Turn on your television now and catch up!


OK–now that I’ve composed myself, I can tell you all the reasons why I love it–mainly, because the gorgeous Kerry Washington is so. freakin. fabulous (oh, and there’s an amazingly addicting storyline). She plays Olivia Pope, a Washington D.C. “fixer” with a killer wardrobe and slightly famous boyfriend. Kerry’s style is flawless on-screen, but also off–this past year, she’s completely morphed in to the red carpet gal to watch, rocking everything from Vera Wang to Miu Miu. I swear every time I see shots of her, I do a little “sista killed it” shout. No judgements. Naturally, I’d love to be anything remotely like her (yes, I’m aware I’m creepily swooning over a girl crush. It’s Friday, let it happen.), so I’ve rounded up a few ways you can rock her style below.



pants | jacket | tank | flats | ring


spike ring | knuckle ring | dual ring | dress (love this one too) | booties (or these!) | clutch |


bobbies | shadow | mascara | bb cream | cheek gelee | highlight | lipstick

  • Dina Karivalis

    I just had a long convo with my boyfriend last night and said I feel like my tv watching is unfulfilled because I don’t watch! I need to get on this ASAP!

    I love that first shot of her and could definitely find a few ways to use each of those pieces. I actually got rid of cable recently but this post is making me sad about it. I love getting addicted to new shows!

    Kerry has amazing style! She’s fresh and hip without being over the top! Plus, gosh, she is gorgeous!

  • ashnfashn

    She is just gorgeous with the best style!

  • Lauren

    YES! Kerry Washington is so flipping gorgeous and I become more enamored with her after every episode of Scandal!

    We are OBSESSED with Kerry at PopSugar beauty. The woman can do no wrong in our eyes. I’m sharing this with my coworker Jessica. She’s going to die.


  • Short and Sweet Blog

    Love her and adore her style. It’s so simple and classic!

  • Jessica McSweeney

    I don’t think this girl crush is creepy at all because I am *obsessed* with Kerry. Scandal is my favorite show (maybe tied with Revenge and Parks and Rec, since girlfriend needs comedies, too) and I think she’s so talented and gorgeous, plus I want to be best friends with Olivia. Anyway – I’ve been dying to try Josie Maran’s cheek stain so with your recommendation I’ll definitely be taking the leap! Have a great weekend!!

  • graceatwood

    This is my favorite series that you do, and I just love Kerry Washington! Scandal is the best!!!

  • Brenna – Bubbly in Brooklyn

    Kerry Washington is my GURL. I adore her and all her style choices. I don’t think I’m brave enough for a full-on brocade outfit, but I love the flats.
