The Year of Kerry.. A Tribute to Kerry on her 40th

85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Kerry Washington has led a charmed life. Today is a milestone for her as she turns the big 4-0!  She has had an incredible year professionally and personally. She is an icon for the modern woman as an artist, humanitarian, political activist, designer, lover, mother, and spokeswoman. Shonda Rhimes said that her character Olivia Pope has been on a journey .The journey has included her own personal growth as well as her personal relationships. Well, Kerry has been on her own journey.  This year has allowed her to have many firsts as well . Come on the journey that Kerry has come and relive some of her moments.


In September of 2015, Kerry began her special time with a cover story talking about her Scandal character and her creator, Shonda Rhimes. Here she is pictured with her leading man, Tony Goldwyn and former First Lady Bellamy Young

Kerry made her mark on the world of beauty in a big way this year. She worked with the people at Neutrogena to design a make up shade line for women of color. Millions of women now use Neutrogena because of her and not only that, she uses the make up when she walks the Red Carpet .


She also was responsible for designing and naming  15 new shades for OPI . The nail polish line reflected her “Scandal” character.


Kerry became her own producer with the HBO movie event “Confirmation”. Her portrayal of the history making Anita Hill who brought down the nomination of Supreme Court judge, Clarence Thomas . The role brought many nominations for Kerry in the course of the year.


Kerry was nominated for “Confirmation” for an Emmy and it was a fun night when ABC decided to add her co star and friend as a presenter. As you can plainly see, another event this year was when Kerry gave birth to her son Caleb which is why there was a six month hiatus for the “Scandal” crew. Kerry’s dress was designed by Brandon Maxwell.

Kerry was nominated once again but was defeated by Sarah Paulson for the “OJ” movie. But Kerry was not a loser when it came to her look. That hot gold dress from Dolce and Gabbana.


Kerry celebrated an anniversary as the spokeswoman for Movado and Elle magazine and Movado threw her a celebratory dinner to commemorate the anniversary.


Kerry got a chance to be political just like her character this year. All of the “Scandal” cast helped with the election and nomination of Hillary Clinton . Tony spoke at the DNC and Hillary herself showed up on the “Scandal” set when Scott directed.


Kerry made a politicial statement at last night ‘s Screen Actors Guild awards. It was concerning Trump’s ban on the borders and Muslims. She still looked great in her Cavalli Couture

The Ten Best Looks of Olivia Pope

olivia pope

 In honor of the Limited’s Scandal collection , I am sharing my ten favorite looks of Washington’s favorite fixer. I got a chance to see the collection and have already plotted and wish listed my favorites. It will make any woman feel confident and powerful. (Sorry girls, it may not get you that dreamboat you want, especially if he is the President) It is on the wish list of every gladiator that I know…Without further ado… here are my picks for Liv…

michael kors dress

Michael Kors…Happy Birthday Birthday Mr President… Season 2…. Olivia wore this cute little number for the Inauguaration of Fitz… little did she know that it would drive her Presidential honey crazy…literally … and he would do her on the sacred desk of the Oval Office…the night after that episode aired …the dress sold out quickly…

jean fares gown

Jean Fares couture gown… Happy Birthday Mr President … Olivia needed something spectacular for the President’s 50 th birthday this gown would definitely make some waves.. Shame the POTUS never got to see his Livvy in this because he got shot that night. As a result, she wore it as she calmed down the First Lady and waited anxiously with Cyrus of Fitz’s condition.

dior houndstooth jacket

Dior Houndstooth Jacket  Vermont Is For Lovers Too..  Season Three  Paired with this Prada bag, it is the perfect ensemble to wear on those bothersome flights on Marine One. Olivia wore this coat to meet with Fitz in Vermont.

chloe slleve less blouse

She  paired it with this adorable Chloe sleeveless blouse… it looked nice until it ended up on the floor …..

back of top

But at least Olivia had someone to button her up when he tore it off of her…..

christening outfit whiskey foxtrot scandal

MaxMara PianoForte Parigi Dress.. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot ..Season 2. It is a shame that we will probably never  see Liv as First Lady because she definitely has that Jackie O vibe going with this outifit..She wore it to be the godmother of her gbf Cyrus  and James little girl , Ella. at her christening. Once again, the outifit was too much for certain people. This resulted in an encounter in the utility closet with Fitz…..

more cattle less bull

Rubin Singer gown for More Cattle, Less Bull  Season 3 …Olivia needed to be seen as a strong woman, she also knew that her Presidential sweetheart would see the gown when they were on the outs once again. Showing up at the state dinner with Jake, she had to make a statement. This gown oozes old time Hollywood glamour and Paolo found it a Neiman Marcus and almost didnt get it for Ms Pope. Lyn Paolo is responsible for all cast members from Fitz to David Rosen.

tory burc h trench

Tory Burch Trench for Sweet Baby and most of Season One……This has to be the iconic symbol of Olivia Pope and if there is one thing to put in the Smithsonian from this historic series it should be this. This takes us back to the confident Olivia of Season One…while she was still the scandal fixer and not the scandal…It’s handled!!!

donna karan casmere 2013

Donna Karan cashmere cozy with hoodie …A Woman Scorned….Season Two….Olivia was just relaxing with her usual glass of wine when she gets a knock at the door. Three gentleman are there and one of them is her  lover . who comes to prove his love while his wife airs their dirty laundry on national television.  It just looks so glamorous and cozy…

escada besjana blazer and tova pants episode one season fout

Escada Besjana Blazer with Tova Pants…paired with Manolo Blahniks… Randy, Red, Superfreak, and Julia Season 4…Olivia makes waves as she comes back to Washington… always the fixer she walks into the Capitol and who does she see… a very familiar face … no words exchanged …just looks and a touch of fingers as the exes pass by each other…

hunting season liv and fitz

My final look is from the First Season and the episode Hunting Season…It is a gorgeous Akris Punto Jacket paired with Armani pants. Liv was wearing heels of course, but she was very lucky to have her own POTUS charming to put on hunting boots so those shoes wouldn’t get ruined. Love this Prince Charming scene from the show…it is a modern day fairy tale…
