You know those people who actually make the trends? The ones who wear them long before the rest of the world catches on? Kerry Washington is one of those people. Not only did she fearlessly rock a maternity crop top at the 2014 SAG Awards - an outfit even Kim Kardashian would later copy - she sometimes shops her clothes right off the runway.
So naturally we were thrilled to find out we could own a piece of the star's signature style: Kerry recently codesigned a clutch with Dee Ocleppo. Better yet, 25 percent of the proceeds go the Allstate Foundation Purple Purse, an organization that protects and supports domestic violence survivors. Looking good while doing good? That's definitely our favorite way to shop.
When we sat down with Kerry to chat about the partnership, we asked her to spill on a number of things: what was the designing process like? What inspires her style? And - most importantly - what was it like wearing Marc Jacobs Spring '16 just days after it hit the catwalk? Keep scrolling to see what she said.
