Kerry Washington Goes Retro for New Shoot with Vogue Italia

By  |  0 Comments

You have to love Kerry Washington.  She’s one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and just happens to have arguably the most prominent job on television for any black woman right now.  With the grace of Beyonce mixed with Michelle Obama, Kerry is becoming a favorite of the entire black community, but also of the world over.

The photo spread is appearing in the July issue of Vogue Italia and features Washington in a wardrobe that would have been to die for in the 1960s.  The imagery is fascinating and takes us back to a time when things were simpler, but beauty was the same.

Washington recently told Aleim magazine “the haute couture side of things didn’t come naturally [and] she came to appreciate fashion as an art form and now embraces it as part of her chosen profession”

Washington is now 35-years old and got her big break in 2004 in the film, “Ray,” where she did a wonderful job playing the wife of Charles.  Jamie Foxx was her co-star, and Washington was just 27-years old at the time.  She was born in the Bronx and had an educator for a mother and a real estate broker for a father.  Kerry is one of our favorites.
