Native New Yorker Kerry Washington is celebrating a milestone birthday today! Never one to shy away from the spotlight, she looked stunning in a white off-the-shoulder gown at Sunday night’s SAG Awards, just a few days before her big day. And with Scandal‘s Season Six premiere airing last week, we’re all excited to welcome Kerry back into our Thursday night routine!
