Kerry Washington has become the 'poster' woman for fashionistas after her recent fashion power revelations during a recent interview with 'The EDIT' and peaked the interest of several entertainment observers and their filmmaker contacts.
The supremely talented actress who has become a fashion lover's source of inspiration and ideas revealed that for her there is a certain feeling of confidence and power that she attains when she wears the clothing of 'Scandal' to play the role of the Washington political power player Olivia Pope.
This disclosure has likely helped many woman, married and single, justify their purchasing some new clothes to 'update' their wardrobes and win many 'discussions' about the cast of such shopping excursions.
She also earned the attention of some entertainment observers and filmmakers with her explanation that to get into the powerful yet very feminine mindset of Olivia Pope when on the set of 'Scandal' she makes sure to rehearse scenes in her 'work' wardrobe which means wearing her Louboutins heels (People Magazine - March 26)..
This film 'secret' many seem small but considering the fact that her performances as Olivia Pope are some of the most impressive by any actor on television her statement will likely result in some filmmakers, particularly directors, demanding that their actors rehearse in their 'work' clothing from head to toe.
'The Last King of Scotland' has become one of the most watched and in-demand actresses in Hollywood because of her exceptional performance on 'Scandal' and with her recent 'power of fashion' comments has likely become one of the women of the year' for fashion-conscious women, fashionistas, clothing designers and ... filmmakers. Some entertainment observers have been laughing about the likelihood that some of the people 'helped' by her statements are probably writing her 'thank you' cards for her comments to 'The EDIT'.
Kerry Washington, the star of 'Scandal' has shown herself to be a fashion-conscious woman's best friend and a great teacher for aspiring actresses.
