Kerry Washington Loves Her Blunt Bangs

Posted on

Splash News Online

Kerry Washington is in love — with her bangs. “I did them for a movie that comes out later this year, called We the Peeples. And I kind of fell in love with my bangs. I just think they’re fun.” Speaking to PEOPLE at the Soigné K-sponsored New Yorkers for Children gala to benefit youth in foster care, held Tuesday at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Washington said she didn’t mind getting comparisons to Jane Fonda’s coif in Klute. “Oh, well, Jane’s a friend,” she said. “So I’ll take that … smart and sexy and talented. She’s breathtaking.” Washington’s clean cut, done by her stylist, Takisha Sturdivant, isn’t her only obsession these days: she’s also playing a role in the Obama administration. “I’m on President Obama’s president’s committee for the arts and humanities,” she said. “It’s a real honor to serve in the administration. [Michelle Obama] is a co-chair on our committee. We do a lot of the arts programming at the White House.” Washington’s position includes working to support arts education, honoring exceptional youth and helping to create a report on the status of arts in schools. “It’s really exciting to be able to work for my country, to be of service,” she said. Especially with a fab hairstyle. Tell us: What do you think of Washington’s bangs?Jeffrey Slonim
