We have fallen for the cool Kerry Washington, who’s walking down red carpets for Django Unchained!

How many boxes do you tick?

1 Do you heart a semi-neutral colour palette to play around with? Bold black, crisp white or some shades of grey in between, does your canvas also call for some fun splashes?

2 Is your latest obsession neon accents? With such safe colours on the garments, she loves to go outrageous with her accessories. Enter neon — in the form of a Prada clutch or kitten heels.

3 Are you in the fringe phase too? It’s fuss-free, it’s feminine and it’s trendy. Look how this 36-year-old rocks it.

4 Do you like your make-up fresh and dewy? Gallons of mascara, muted eye-shadow and nearly-natural puckers are her go-to style. And yours?

5 Do you tread the line between timeless and trendy? Kerry’s appearances scream ‘with it’ and yet she’s not a fashion victim. We love how she favours the classics — midis, A-lines and modest round necks — but not without the twist of the season.

Who’s kerry?

Plays Django’s (Leonardo DiCaprio) wife in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.

Plays Olivia Pope, the protagonist in the high-voltage ABC drama Scandal, season one of which aired on Zee Café last year.

She keeps something (furniture or wardrobe item) of every character she plays. For sentimental reasons!

And she is reportedly single right now!
