O Magazine celebrates “Timeless Beauty” in the May 2011 issue with ageless style icon, Diahann Carroll and contemporary fashion darling, Kerry Washington.

The feature explores how style transcends generational gaps with quotes from both women on their mutual appreciation for each other’s fashion sense, and how they each define their personal style.

Of Kerry, Diahann Carroll said: “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.”

    KERRY WASHINGTON IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE, FANTASTIC AND SUPERBEAUTIFUL WOMAN. I GREW UP WITH KERRY IN BRONX AND WHEN WE WERE KIDS WE WERE THE BEST FRIEND. SHE WAS MY FIRST CHILD LOVE, AND I WAS HOPEFULLY FOR HER TOO (LOL), BECAUSE WE WERE VERY YOUNG THAT TIME. SINCE OUR CHILDHOOD I KNOW KERRY VERY WELL AND ALWAYS KNEW THAT IN FUTURE SHE WILL BE GREAT AND SUCCESFUL WOMAN. VERY LOVE THIS HER PHOTO GALLERY. SHE LOOKS VERY GLAMOROUS AND LIVELY IN ALL HER PICTURES HERE. I ESPECIALLY LIKE HER PICTURE WHERE SHE IS SITTING IN PINK CAROLINA HERRERA DRESS. ESPECIALLY LOVE HER LOOK IN THAT PICTURE. PINK DRESS AND PINK SHOES SUIT KERRY PERFECTLY. VERY LOVE HER HAIRSTYLE. KERRY HAS INCREDIBLE NATURAL SENSE OF STYLE AND FASHION. IN MY OPINION NO ONE WOMAN HAS IT. I REMEMBER THAT SHE HAD GREAT SENSE OF STYLE WHEN WE WERE KIDS. KERRY IS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL WOMAN AND ALWAYS WAS FOR ME SINCE WE WERE KIDS. I DID NEVER EXPECT FROM HER THAT SHE WILL WORK IN FUTURE IN PRESIDENT’S COMMETTEE AND HER L’OREAL HUMANITARIAN COMPAIGN I THINK THE GREATEST THING THAT SHE DOES. I WISH HER TO FIND MORE SUPPORT IN THAT. I VERY LOVE HER MOVIES AND IT’S OBVIOUS FOR ME THAT THE BEST HER MOVIE SHE DID WAS ‘I THINK I LOVE MY WIFE’. THIS MOVIE DESERVES AT LEAST COUPLE OF OSCARS AND MANY EMMY AWARDS. SHE PORTRAYED THE GREAT CHARACTER IN THIS MOVIE AND THE CHARACTER SHE PORTRAYED IN THIS MOVIE IS MY FAVORITE. NO ONE WOMAN IS LIKE KERRY WASHINGTON.

    Oh, how I love Diahanne. She is my ICON! She is Beauty. She is Style! She is my definition of knowing who you are and not being afraid to show it. Fear is not even in her vocabulary. Coco & Cream you do a great job helping me pick out magazines to buy for the month.

      Bronze I finally figured out your burnt champagne quote. It’s from miss Carrol to Alexis on Dynasty.

      Miss Carroll is one of my favorites too. She is so chic, elegant and classy. The type of woman for whom men run to open doors for. Even when she played a single mom on Julia, she did it with class.
