Looks like Kerry Washington has officially joined the ranks of Hollywood beauties with bobs! 

The 38-year-old Scandal star stuns on the cover of Ebony magazine's latest issue, looking absolutely gorgeous while rocking a trendy bob hairstyle, fierce fringe (it's unclear whether the look is a wig for the cover) and even bright blue eyeliner. 

Talk about a bold look for Olivia Pope! 

Sporting a fitted, geometric print dress that perfectly hugs her curves, the mother of one flaunts her flawless skin, full lips and long lashes while proving she's a fashion chameleon who can rock any tress transformation!

In the mag's accompanying article, Washington opens up about her first time meeting Scandal creator Shonda Rimes and reveals why it was scary to step into Pope's political shoes. 

"I remember the first time I met Shonda Rhimes. She told me that a show like Scandal could end up being an eight-year relationship," Washington says. "I'd never done television, so just the thought of that was terrifying to me. But whether it's doing TV or playing a character such as Broomhilda in Django Unchained, I definitely like to do things that shake me up."

So, would she ever shake up her career entirely and dive into politics?

"Absolutely not," she admits. "I wouldn't be able to handle what it takes to get approval in politics. I have a hard enough time seeking approval in Hollywood."
