Happy Tuesday!
Intern Suzie hits us with a Stylefile on actress Kerry Washington. Enjoy!
Hey Guys!
Suzie here, so sorry for disappearing on you! I was in London (on business)…and you know I had to stop in Burberry and exercise my credit cards:) Anyway, I’m here to profile one of my fave actresses, style icons, and Essence Cover Girl…

Kerry Washington Essence Cover July 2007

…Ms. Kerry Washington. She is a consummate lady and a fashionista to boot. Let’s take a look.
Kerry pays close attention to details in beautiful gowns accented with embroidery, beads, and embellishments…

And as you can see Kerry is a total fan of scintillating colors like fuchsia….

Eye popping orange…

Punchy Pink…

And powder blue…

While she dabbles in color, blacks, whites and greys also play a huge part in her wardrobe…

Always Remember: “Dress to Impress.”
Great Job Suzie! Love Kerry Washington…
Anyway I also had to jump in to tell you about a new t-shirt line one of my colleagues, Janet Kim, recently created called Graey. She says she started her collection to, “incorporate couture details into affordable ready-to-wear.” Her Spring ’07 collection is comprised of, “tanks and tees embellished with a couture technique where lace is embroidered onto the fabric and the original fabric is cut away on the back to reveal what’s underneath.” Take a look:

Left to Right: Crown Tee, $88; Lace Tee, $110; Black Lace Tank, $55.
Tres chic.
Check out her whole collection (and shop!) at www.graeyny.com.
