Her starring role as crisis management expert Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal has shot Kerry Washington’s Hollywood star straight into the stratosphere, putting her on the receiving end of some much deserved media love, like scoring the August 2013 cover of Vanity Fair Magazine.
Lensed by photographer Norma Jean Roy, Kerry’s Vanity Fair cover finds the Scandal actress partaking in one of Olivia Pope’s favorite pastimes, taking a dip into the pool. And of course she’s oozing sensuality while doing so.
It’s a perfect summer issue considering we’re right in the thick of swimsuit season, and Kerry’s white cut-out monokini is a great way to sit sexy poolside without exposing too much. If you really want to smoulder though, try Kerry’s matte red lip and smoky kohl rimmed eyes on for size.
While everyone’s waiting with bated breath for season three of Scandal to begin, at least we have Kerry the Vanity Fair cover girl to tide us over.
