Kerry Washington for the October Issue of Glamour Magazine

The stylist for this photo shoot chose a Christian Dior dress which looked hot on Kerry's cover.  Here it is while on the runway: simple but sophisticated.  Scroll down for Kerry's interview!

On her secret marriage to Nnamdi Asomugha:
“I’m walking around in the world with my ring.  And when people say congratulations, I say thank you.  But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold.  I don’t want to sound smug about it… but the point is to do what’s best for me.  I have girlfriends in this business who talk about their personal lives, and it works for them, and I love it.  But not for me.”
On keeping her personal life private:
“I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me to talk about my personal life.  I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it.  I was on the cover of a bridal magazine.  But I couldn’t just turn around and say, ‘I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.’  So I just thought, ‘OK, no more.’”

 On what is in Olivia Pope’s handbag:
“Usually folders, pens, the phone on the show, and often a bottle of water to add a nice weight to the bag.  And some panties in one episode!”
On fashion and the red carpet:
“It started out as, like, Good-Student Kerry. OK, I’m going to admit this: There were a couple of actresses whom I felt were having the upper hand careerwise—because they knew how to work that red carpet. I was like, “I’m missing a really important tool. If I am the CEO of the Kerry Washington Corporation, my marketing department is really lax.” So I sort of developed a new character: Red-Carpet Kerry.And I researched her like any other character. I actually called Tracee Ellis Ross, who’s a good friend, and literally asked, “How do you pronounce Hermès?” Red-Carpet Kerry needed to know.”
