Kerry Washington Appears On ‘The Tonight Show’ in Louboutin Stilettos

Kerry Washington made yet another appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to talk her hit show “Scandal.” The star showed up in an new version of the So Kate heel by Christian Louboutin called the Degraspike stiletto. The silver pumps with a spike gradient gave Washington a bit of an edge, compared to her Prada look from the 2015 Met Gala.

Fans are anticipating a shocking “Scandal” finale, airing May 14. Washington told Fallon, “When we finished the table read for this finale I was so shocked that I looked at Shonda and said, ‘Where do we go from here? How do we even have a fifth season after this?’ It’s crazy.” Watch the clip, below.

The last time Washington hit “The Tonight Show,” she wore red python pumps, again by Christian Louboutin.

Washington seems to be a fan of python. The actress came out in pink Tamara Mellon python heels to attend the ATAS panel event at the Directors Guild Of America in Los Angeles, Calif. last week.

“I am never 100 percent clear about who a character is until I know what shoes she’s wearing,” Kerry Washington told WWD last year. “Shoes say so much about what we are — they define how we walk in the world. I will come to work and rehearse in sweatpants, a T-shirt and Manolo pumps, because I don’t feel like the character unless I’m in their heels.”

And she really does take her heels seriously. Lena Dunham, who guest-starred on “Scandal” this season, told Seth Meyers that Washington never takes her heels off. “She wears her heels all day like the boss she is,” said Dunham.
