A Kerry Washington cover can come with its fair share of controversy. The Internet started buzzing when the Scandal star's Lucky cover hit newsstands last year. Commenters claimed the actress had been severely photoshopped. They started up again when Kerry graced InStyle just last month, with her skin looking lighter than usual. So, we were more than a little interested to see how Kerry's Marie Claire cover would turn out. We can breathe a collective sigh of relief. She looks radiant. The photo is simple, glamorous, and seriously striking. She sports a cool-girl smoky eye, filled-in brows, and glamorous waves. What's more, she doesn't seem to be the victim of any unnecessary digital altering. We're super-happy to see that Kerry looks like herself, especially since herself is insanely gorgeous. Click over to Marie Claire to check out more snaps from her photo shoot. And, go ahead and raise a glass to the lady for getting this win.
