Kerry Washington is showing off her curly locks on cover of the September 2020 issue of Town & Country.

“This was definitely not a normal photo shoot,” said Washington, who is seen wearing a one-shoulder lavender gown by Cushnie. “It was a socially distanced labor of love.”

Washington thanked her go-to hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew and makeup artist Carola Gonzalez for guiding her glam through Facetime.

“Somehow @takishahair and @carolagmakeup were able to work their magic through Facetime and had me feeling beautiful and confident from 3,000 miles away,” Washington wrote.

In addition to giving kudos to her makeup and hairstylist, Washington also gave credit to stylist Law Roach. She said he has everything ready to go for her to look fabulous just three days before the shoot.

In the cover story, Washington discusses her upcoming film The Fight, which is a documentary centered around ACLU lawyers’ battles for abortion rights, immigrant rights, LGBTQ rights and voting rights.

“I have such deep reverence for what this country can be,” she said to Town & Country.  “I love that this film invites us all into the ‘we,’ and to know that we belong here. We have to fight to belong here, but we belong here.”

Washington went on to talk about how everyone can get involved in the fight for social justice.

“This is such a great moment, because we are in an unprecedented time when people of extraordinary privilege, for lots of reasons, are asking themselves how they can be part of the solution,” said Washington.

“Whether it is to give your time, give your money, give your heart, speak up in the conversation when somebody says they don’t believe something.”

The September 2020 issue of Town & Country hits newsstands on August 12.
