Why does Kerry Washington not look like Kerry Washington in these pictures for Lucky mag?
“Scandal” star Kerry Washington covers the December 2013/January 2014 issue of Lucky magazine photographed by Patrick Demarchelier and styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele.
On working in Hollywood: “It’s a miracle to even work in this industry,” says Washington, who resists being tagged a late bloomer. “I didn’t become an actrss to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story.”
On Olivia Pope: “One of the things I really love about playing Olivia,” says Washington, “is the juxtaposition of her being such a powerful woman and her immeasurable vulnerability.” Still for Washington, Olivia is defined by her character, not her clothing. “There are shows where every time you see the character she’s in a different piece and it’s like a fashion event… I didn’t want that. I wanted Olivia to be a real person. We will always buy new pieces, but on every episode we try to use at least one piece that you’ve seen before.”
On the dangers of the media: “Even for me, I think it’s a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show. I know that I am not going to look like Olivia when I wake up and go to the bathroom at 4 o’clock in the morning. On the set, it’s somebody’s job to follow me around all day with spackle,” she laughs.

Something about the lighting and makeup seems way off. The really odd poses aren’t helping either. And who wears cuffs like that over a cableknit sweater? We’re very confused by all this.
