MAGAZINE FAB: Kerry Washington & Diahann Carroll For The May 2011 "O" Magazine "Timeless Beauty" Feature

Actresses Diahann Carroll and Kerry Washington sat for a recent feature story in O Magazine called "Timeless Beauty."  We've got the pics of the gorgeous ladies inside...

 

Diahann Carroll, the gorgeous 75-year-old veteran actress who appeared in the first films starring black actresses, and Kerry Washington, the beautiful 34-year-old film and Broadway actress, are featured in the May 2011 issue of O Magazine called "Timeless Beauty."  In the article Diahann wears a L.K. Bennett dress and Kerry wears a CH Carolina Herrera dress.  A word of advice, Diahann says, “The legs are the last to go!  I bring attention to mine with skirts and midheel pumps.”

Here are some article highlights:

Diahann Carroll…

On Kerry
“Kerry reminds me a lot of myself at her age. She has a trained eye for detail and what suits her figure. And she has an innate self-confidence, a coolness about how lovely she is.”

On Fashion

“My fashion life exists mainly through work, so I dress to be event appropriate. I see clothes as a performance.”

On Stilettos

“I will suffer while I’m being photographed, then change into another pair of shoes.”

On Shapewear

“You have to remember that a body is going into that pretty dress. I always want a long line and a neat, clean look – the simpler, the better.”

 

Kerry Washington…


On working a modern mix of designers and affordable labels

“I inhabit a lot of different worlds and I’m always trying to find balance.”

On Fashion

“Fashion is an art. Clothes are a costume we use to express who we are.”   

 

 

 

 

Just gorgeous.  The epitome of YBF women.  (Yes, "young" is a state of mind).

KERRY WASHINGTON IS

KERRY WASHINGTON IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE, FANTASTIC AND SUPERBEAUTIFUL WOMAN. I GREW UP WITH KERRY IN BRONX AND WHEN WE WERE KIDS WE WERE THE BEST FRIEND. SHE WAS MY FIRST CHILD LOVE, AND I WAS HOPEFULLY FOR HER TOO (LOL), BECAUSE WE WERE VERY YOUNG THAT TIME. SINCE OUR CHILDHOOD I KNOW KERRY VERY WELL AND ALWAYS KNEW THAT IN FUTURE SHE WILL BE GREAT AND SUCCESFUL WOMAN. VERY LOVE THIS HER PHOTO GALLERY. SHE LOOKS VERY GLAMOROUS AND LIVELY IN ALL HER PICTURES HERE. I ESPECIALLY LIKE HER PICTURE WHERE SHE IS SITTING IN PINK CAROLINA HERRERA DRESS. ESPECIALLY LOVE HER LOOK IN THAT PICTURE. PINK DRESS AND PINK SHOES SUIT KERRY PERFECTLY. VERY LOVE HER HAIRSTYLE. KERRY HAS INCREDIBLE NATURAL SENSE OF STYLE AND FASHION. IN MY OPINION NO ONE WOMAN HAS IT. I REMEMBER THAT SHE HAD GREAT SENSE OF STYLE WHEN WE WERE KIDS. KERRY IS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AND ALWAYS WAS FOR ME SINCE WE WERE KIDS. I DID NEVER EXPECT FROM HER THAT SHE WILL WORK IN FUTURE IN PRESIDENT'S COMMETTEE AND HER L'OREAL HUMANITARIAN COMPAIGN I THINK THE GREATEST THING THAT SHE DOES. I WISH HER TO FIND MORE SUPPORT IN THAT. I VERY LOVE HER MOVIES AND IT'S OBVIOUS FOR ME THAT THE BEST HER MOVIE SHE DID WAS 'I THINK I LOVE MY WIFE'. THIS MOVIE DESERVES AT LEAST COUPLE OF OSCARS AND MANY EMMY AWARDS. SHE PORTRAYED THE GREAT CHARACTER IN THIS MOVIE AND THE CHARACTER SHE PORTRAYED IN THIS MOVIE IS MY FAVORITE. NO ONE WOMAN IS LIKE KERRY WASHINGTON.

Dihann is the bomb! Nothing

Dihann is the bomb! Nothing left to say there. Kerry I love, but I was stunned by how she portrayed herself has free and natural when her makeupless weaveless photos showed otherwise. She's still an amazing actress, but she's lost her mojo for me. Will say beautiful photos of both of them.

These are stunning women but

These are stunning women but sorry those pics didn't do them justice. I'm all for experimenting in photography but having the light directly behind the subject in this way pretty much obliterated them in every shot. ;-(

Ms. Carroll is a beautiful

Ms. Carroll is a beautiful woman and still looks great! I guess that saying is true, "BLACK DON'T CRACK". Kerry is only pretty with her make-up and wigs on! LOL. I have seen her on this site without any make up on. And wtf is up with her top lip? Did one of her white friends bite it off when they were kissing her??
