It’s no secret that Kerry Washington is stunning, flawless, perfect, beautiful … Shall we continue?! So when she graced the cover of Allure’s November issue bare faced, we had no reason to doubt that it was indeed Washington’s natural, glowing dermis totally stripped down.
But during a recent interview with The View, Washington let the cat out of the bag and revealed that she did actually have makeup on. “It is a no-makeup look but I do have some makeup on,” she explained. “I’m going to be honest because I think it’s unfair when we tell women they should look like something that’s not real.”
She added, “I do have some makeup on, just enough, but it’s definitely not my normal beat face that’s for sure.”
During her chat with the show’s hosts, Washington also opened up about being a perfectionist. “As women we want to be perfect. I’m also the only child and I’m very aware of how people see me. I remember when I was in college someone told me self reliance was a character flaw … It’s been a really important lesson for me for in life to ask for help and let myself just be who I am.”
Oprah Loved Being A Braided Blonde Bombshell In ‘A Wrinkle In Time’
Oprah Winfrey is a blonde bombshell in Ava Duvernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and she loved every minute of it. HipHollywood sat down with the media mogul along with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about playing the Mrs. and their elaborate hair, make-up and costumes.
“Girl we had hair for days,” gushed Winfrey. “My favorite was the ponytail, the braid.”
Celebrity hair guru Kim Kimble, who frequently works with Beyonce, headed up the film’s hair department. For the film she turned Lady O into a blonde, Reese into a red head and gave Kaling fab braided locks. “They were like [hair] sculptures,” said Kaling who plays Mrs. Who.
So how long did it take to get these ladies out of this world ready? “Hours,” joked Winfrey and Reese in unison.
To be exact, the ladies were in hair and make-up 3-5 hours daily as lead hairstylist Kim Kimble and make-up artists LaLette Littlejohn and Derrick Rutledge got them camera ready. “I think Kim and the team worked for days before, sculpting and making it right,” added Winfrey who plays Mrs. Which.
Derrick Rutledge, Winfrey’s personal makeup artist who also worked on the film, designed rhinestone eyebrows for each Mrs. Which ensemble. Meanwhile costume designer Paco Delgado drew from volcano explosions and depictions of galaxies to create costumes that made Winfrey shimmer and appear larger than life.
In the Disney big screen adaption, the three celestial beings – Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit lead 13-year-old Meg (Storm Reid) and others on a journey to rescue the girl’s scientist father (Chris Pine) from evil otherworldly forces.
It’s better seen than simply described, so be sure to check out A Wrinkle In Time in theaters now!
