Scandal star Kerry Washington might be a sartorial inspiration for her team of gladiators and TV fans everywhere, but the actress hasn’t always been so style savvy. Despite her appearances front row at countless fashion shows, Washington recently told Glamour that she had to study up on designers early on in her career, even asking a friend for the proper pronunciation of “Hermès” before a red carpet event. It might all sound scandalous now, but this kind of humble admission is just another reason why we love the down-to-earth star.
To see how far she’s come in nearly 15 years in the spotlight, check out the photos above and try to find a time when white hasn’t worked on her gorgeous frame.
