Kerry Washington chats it up inside the December 2010 issue of REDBOOK, out on newsstands November 16. In her interview with the mag she shares her style motto and discusses her new movie, For Colored Girls.
The photo shoot, snapped by Diego Uchitel, captures Kerry’s effortlessly chic style, showcasing sparkly holiday and daytime looks, and embodying the definition of casual glamour.
Check out some highlights below:
On her style: “I like to try different things. If I feel good about what I see in the mirror, who cares if what I’m wearing is a Don’t or a Do?”
On holiday fashion: “This is the one time of year that I get sparkly for my family and friends.”
On starring in For Colored Girls: “It’s such an important piece: There had never been a play on Broadway before by women of color about women of color in that way. And the film was incredible for me, working with such fantastic actresses.” Those include Whoopi Goldberg, Thandie Newton, and Phylicia Rashad. “Phylicia gave me great advice; she talked about not denying who you are to make a man comfortable. And I sat there and thought, Here I am, getting a mom moment with the mom from The Cosby Show! This is amazing!”
