I fell in love with Kerry Washington a little bit last night. Hilary Rhoda was interviewing her on the livesteam — and, listen, Hilary Rhoda is lovely, but a gifted celebrity interviewer she is not. Can’t they hire Coco for this sort of thing? — and she mentioned that she loves going to the Met, because of how much she loves From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. You had me at “Frankweiler,” Kerry Washington. Can we get together and talk about awesome childhood books? What are your feelings on Harriet the Spy?
I think she looks great from the neck up. I LONG for them to allow Olivia Pope to look like this more often (Olivia has looked tired lately, although I guess with good reason. It’s more that I feel like if Olivia Pope got to look a weeeeee bit more Kerry Washington every now and then, her personal life would not be such a disaster). I appreciate the nod to theme with the fishnet in her cleavage (that sentence is much uglier than the actual dress) and the leather gloves, and you KNOW I love a pattern. Am I 100% sold on this little number? I’m not sure.
