Brown Skin Popping: Kerry Washington’s ‘Marie Claire’ Cover Gets Two Thumbs Up


And let the church say, “Amen!” because Marie Claire Magazine deserves a round of applause for their April 2015 issue.

The women’s lifestyle magazine snagged Scandal star, Kerry Washington, as their cover girl and for once she finally looks like herself – brown skin popping and full lips on fleek. From Lucky to InStyle, many of Washington’s debut covers have been met with side eyes and Twitter rants claiming that the Hollywood starlet was unrecognizable. Whether her skin tone looked too washed out or her features looked too airbrushed, people have found something wrong with nearly every cover she’s graced within the past year and a half.

Thankfully, Marie Claire has us singing their praises as Kerry’s bout with bad magazine covers seem to be a thing of the past – we can only hope.
