Kerry Washington is a beautiful woman and a talented actress who has spent more than a decade building a solid resume. Many people know her as Olivia Pope, the woman who fixes, or at least covers up, problems in the sex-and-power TV drama, "Scandal." Others know her for a wide range of film roles for which she keeps busy attending one awards ceremony after another

She first came to movie goers' attention with her role as the wife of musician Ray Charles in the 2004 film, "Ray." That film netted her 'best actress' nominations from the Screen Actor's Guild, The International Press Academy and an Image Award from the NAACP. More recently she has won awards for her performances in "For Colored Girls" in 2011 and "Django Unchained" in 2013. She is already drawing critical acclaim for "Scandal."

Like most other award-winning actresses, her trips down the red carpet gain as much attention as her work. Fans and Paparazzi crowd in to see what she is wearing. According to Washington, she works closely with stylist Erin Walsh to create "fashion moments" for every event. Her style has been described as both bold and feminine. She displays a taste for prints and below-the-knee hem lines, but doesn't limit herself to that. A solid color, floor-length, strapless gown may be followed by a leather mini and jacket the next day. Her public style is hardly ever casual; like herself, and the characters she plays, her costume choices are all about success.
