Kerry Washington has given fans yet another reason to totally and completely be in love with her.
The actress is already talented (watch Scandal online for evidence)... hilarious (see this Modern Family cast photobomb)... and admirably guarded (go look at those photos of her wedding to Nnamdi Asomugha; no wait, sorry, you can't! There are none!)
She's also a pure beauty, as proven once again on the cover of next month's Allure.
Washington - who can be seen tonight at 9/8c on ABC as political fixer Olivia Pope - isn't wearing a touch of makeup for the lead photo, which hit the Internet today and which the star herself teased as follows on Twitter:
"What an honor! Thanks @Allure_magazine."
