Diahann Carroll and Kerry Washington are featured in the May 2011 issue of O Magazine called “Timeless Beauty. Veteran actress shared some advice, Diahann says, “The legs are the last to go! I bring attention to mine with skirts and midheel pumps.”

Diahann Carroll…

On Kerry

“Kerry reminds me a lot of myself at her age. She has a trained eye for detail and what suits her figure. And she has an innate self-confidence, a coolness about how lovely she is.”

On Fashion

“My fashion life exists mainly through work, so I dress to be event appropriate. I see clothes as a performance.”

On Stilettos

“I will suffer while I’m being photographed, then change into another pair of shoes.”

On Shapewear

“You have to remember that a body is going into that pretty dress. I always want a long line and a neat, clean look – the simpler, the better.”
