Scandal star Kerry Washington debuts dazzling diamond band

Kerry Washington has stepped into the spotlight as a married woman.

The Scandal star, who married her American football star boyfriend Nnamdi Asomugha in a secret wedding ceremony in Idaho on 24 June, flashed her wedding ring for the first time at Sunday's ABC party at the Television Critics Association.

Wearing a hint of a cheeky smile and a glowing complexion, the 36-year-old actress wore another sparkling accessory – her wedding ring, which appears to be a thin gold band set with a myriad of diamonds – as she stepped out in Beverly Hills.



Posing in a white and orange patterned halterneck number by designer Giambattista Valli, Kerry, 36, discretely clutched her petite beige Nancy Gonzalez handbag.

She completed her outfit with a pair of neutral-toned Christian Louboutin heels and gleaming Vhernier earrings.

The Scandal actress, who also starred in Django Unchained as Jamie Foxx's enslaved wife Broomhilda von Shaft, is enjoying success in both personal and professional elements of her life.

She recently made headlines when she appeared on the cover of the August edition of Vanity Fair, the first black woman to do so since Beyonce in 2005.


The beauty is also celebrating her Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series category.

She will be competing against such luminous stars as Connie Britton, Claire Danes, Michelle Dockery, Vera Farmiga, Elisabeth Moss and Robin Wright.

"It's pretty extraordinary what's going on," Kerry told Us Weekly. "I feel really grateful for the show. I love celebrating with the whole cast together."
