Kerry Washington is the face of ‘ELLE’ mag’s April issue, and she looks drop-dead-gorgeous in nothing but a sweatshirt. We are obsessed with her salty beach waves, and lucky for you, you can recreate her hairstyle for less!
Kerry Washington, 39, has graced to the cover of ELLE magazine for it’s April issue, and we have never seen the actress look so flawless. She is rocking the no-makeup makeup look and for the first time, we’re seeing a grungy side of Kerry we’ve never seen before — we love it! The best part about the cover, though, is her salty beach waves and you can get her beachy hair, here!
Kerry is always so pulled together and perfect with not even a hair out of place. So, seeing her with messy salted hair and smudged eye makeup is the best thing ever — she is flawless.
On the cover, she rocked a gray Shinola sweatshirt, Cartier earrings and a bracelet, as well as Van Cleef & Arpels bangles. Ok, let’s break this down because we’re obsessed with Kerry’s spread. She is featured in a slew of photos taken on the beach and she is covered in sand — it is seriously sexy.
It looks like Kerry just went swimming in the ocean with some mascara on, came back to shore, and air dried her hair while she tanned in the sun — wow, we are dreaming of summer. Her waves are so natural and messy, which can be so easily recreated if you can’t get to a beach. Try Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, which is literally a miracle product. Spritz some on your damp hair and walk out the door and within minutes, you will have effortless, salted beach waves.
Aside from Kerry looking drop-dead-gorgeous in the photoshoot, she also had a lot to say about Scandal, her upcoming HBO show, Confirmation, and motherhood.
Kerry explained how playing Olivia Pope, (our hero), prepped her for motherhood. “Even though Olivia Pope has obviously made the decision that she is not a mom, playing her made me feel like I could be a mom. Because she knows there’s always another way—there’s always a way to fix it, there’s always a way to solve it, to win. And I feel like playing her made me feel like, All right, I can do it. I will figure out how to juggle it all.” Wow, Kerry is Olivia Pope in real life and now our lives are officially complete.
We love Kerry so much and we cannot wait for this issue to hit newsstands on March 22, can you?
