Peep the spread HERE

As the first African-American woman to headline a major network drama since 1974, with her hit series SCANDAL, Kerry Washington has made her mark on the small screen and beyond.

This Christmas the 35-year-old star will star opposite Academy Award-winning actors Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio in the Quentin Tarantino directed/produced film “Django Unchained.”

Its no surprise that ELLE magazine featured the stunning “Save the Last Dance” star in its December 2012 issue.

Check out some of her interview highlights……..

On playing Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal:
“Olivia deals with a negotiation of power that I think is unique to the modern woman. She’s phenomenally successful, able to control her world and make things happen with clarity and force in her professional life.”

On her upcoming film “Django Unchained,” directed by Quentin Tarantino:
“Look, I can see how it’s not particularly feminist to play the princess in the tower, waiting to be saved. But as a black woman- we’ve never been afforded that luxury. There was no man coming to save you; it wasn’t part of the story. In some ways, this telling is a statement of that empowerment.”

Uber fab!!  Ms. Kerry give you fever!!
