Kerry Washington Covers Vanity Fair

KERRY WASHINGTON VANITY FAIR COVER PHOTO SHOOT (1)

Actress Kerry Washington is covering the August edition of Vanity Fair magazine. The 36-year old newlywed and star of the ABC drama ‘Scandal,’ is reportedly the first black woman to cover the U.S. edition of the magazine since Beyonce did so back in 2005.

Kerry tweeted her cover over the weekend, thanking the glossy and acknowledging the fact that she is also the first black actress to grace the cover alone.

And in other Kerry news, you read correctly- Kerry is indeed a newlywed. News broke over the weekend of the brown skin beauty marrying NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha in an under-the-radar ceremony in Hailey, Idaho early last week.

Kerry’s new hubby is a Berkley graduate who now plays cornerback for the San Francisco 49’ers.

Congrats to the happy couple!
