Kerry Washington is being honored at the Costume Designers Guild Awards for her work as Olivia Pope on Scandal.
The Guild presents the award to actors whose talent and career personify an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design.
“In my seven seasons of playing Olivia Pope on Scandal, I have had the blessing of working with the remarkable Lyn Paolo to create a character whose internal strength and strong sense of conviction are so effortlessly reflected in the clothing that she wears,” Washington told CDGA sponsor Harper’s Bazaar. “Being honored by the CDGA this year with the Spotlight Award is a fitting culmination for our time together, and I look forward to celebrating our collaboration on this special night.”
Kerry will be honored at the awards show on February 20 at the Beverly Hilton.
