Two very proud parents! Kerry Washington brings mother and father to dinner held in her honour and wears dramatic floral dress

She portrays tough-as-nails Olivia Pope on  ABC’s hit series Scandal, but Kerry Washington played devoted daughter on  Saturday night at a dinner held in her honour.

 

The 36-year-old actress brought her father  Earl and mother Valerie as her dates to the party celebrating her October cover  of Glamour magazine at Carbone in New York City.

The newlywed’s husband, San Francisco 49ers  cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, was busy preparing for opening weekend of the  National Football League, but the beauty looked thrilled to be joined by her  parents.

Washington dazzled in a floral, drop-waist  Marchesa dress, white Brian Atwood pumps and a purple clutch.

She wore her hair in an elegant updo to show  off her Finn and Monique Pean rings.

Earl, who’s a real estate broker, wore a  black suit with dark gray shirt, while Valerie, a professor, looked lovely in a  violet dress.

The party was hosted by Glamour  editor-in-chief Cindi Lieve, and the Washingtons were joined by guests  including: CBS This Morning co-anchor Gayle King, Parenthood star Joy Bryant  and  fashion designers Atwood, Tory Burch and Jason Wu.

It was a busy weekend for the  fashionable TV  star. She spent Friday alongside Project Runway host  Heidi Klum as a guest  judge for the season finale of Lifetime reality show.

Earlier on Saturday she was spotted front row  for the Alexander Wang runway show at Pier 94.

Kerry graces the cover of the new issue of  Glamour magazine.

Inside she muses what might be in her Scandal  character’s handbag, dishes on her secret wedding to Asomugha last summer and explains why she intends to keep her  private life to herself.

‘I learned through experience that it doesn’t  work for me to talk about my personal life. I’ve had earlier times in my career  when I did talk about it,’ she tells the magazine.

But if Scandal fans are looking for season 3  spoilers, you won’t get them from Olivia’s alter-ego.

Washington recently replied: ‘LOL! Nice try!  NO SPOILERS!’ to a fan on Twitter who  predicted: ‘Hey! Can’t believe Olivia kills the pres, runs for pres, & wins  an Olympic gold medal in season 3!’

Fortunatley her fans won’t have to wait long  to find out what happens.

Scandal’s third season debuts Oct. 3 on  ABC.

Glamour isn’t the only magazine the Django  Unchained star will grace next month as she is also a cover girl for  Flare.

In the issue, the actress assures fans it’s  OK to root for her character despite her affair with the president of the United  States.

‘There are some ways you want to be Olivia  Pope and some ways you want to do a major intervention for her,’ she tells the  publication.
