Her hit ABC show "Scandal" continues to top ratings week after week, so it's no surprise that Kerry Washington nabbed herself a spot on the cover of Lucky magazine's December/January issue.

Looking absolutely stunning, the 36-year-old actress sports a sheer and floral embellished pink frock on the glossy Patrick Demarchelier-shot front page.

Opening up to readers about everything from her role as Olivia Pope, to her style and everything in between, Miss Washington didn't hold back in her sit down question and answer session.

Check out a few highlights from Kerry's interview below, and for more be sure to visit Lucky!

On having a career in Hollywood: “It’s a miracle to even work in this industry. I didn’t become an actress to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story.”

On perfecting her style for her ever-changing duties: “I always strive to be appropriate, I know that how people dress says a lot about what they believe and how they walk in the world. So I’m very aware when I make choices that those choices say things. I know whether a gown is the correct gown for the Met Ball or at the MTV Movie Awards or at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.”

On wearing her wedding ring from hubby Nnamdi Asomugha: “I never wanted to have a ring that I would feel uncomfortable riding the subway with. My wedding band and engagement ring are the only things I can say that I wear every day, I pin them to my clothing on set. That way, I always have them with me.”
