Kerry Washington Takes Her Victory Lap at The Actors Fund’s “Scandal” Finale Live Stage Reading

Posted on April 20, 2018

A little bit of sparkle-glam and come comfy-ass pants. It’s the perfect look for someone who’s done the work and is here to just take her bows.

But we have to admit, we’d like it so much better if the shirt wasn’t cropped. It’s not that she can’t work a crop top, but we think the proportions would look a little better if this one actually met the waistband of the pants.

How perfect that she’s in white, which was her character’s signature color. We can’t say we were ever ardent fans of Scandal, mainly because our patience with twisty-turny TV is fairly low, but there’s no doubt she and Shonda Rhimes made not only television history, but also cultural history as well. Olivia Pope was the pop culture/high-drama version of Michelle Obama; offering up a vision of chic black womanhood that the culture simply hadn’t seen at this level before: a scary-smart, high-fashion, high-powered, take-no-shit African-American woman sitting at the highest echelons of governmental power, in the arms of the most powerful man in the world. It’ll take some time to parse what this all really meant to the culture at large, but we don’t think there’s any doubt that this was one of the most meaningful and important television shows during this period in history, if not the entire history of the medium. She deserves all the bows she wants to take.
