“Scandal” star Kerry Washington is Lucky’s December 2013/January 2014 cover girl – but the just-unveiled magazine cover is already garnering criticism for excessive Photoshop and bad styling.

Lucky editor-in-chief Eva Chen revealed the cover on Twitter yesterday, tweeting, “Just unveiled @LuckyMagazine’s December/January covergirl on @GMA: the indomitable @kerrywashington of @scandalABC!”

Washington re-tweeted Chen, adding, “WOOO HOOO!”

However, while many bloggers are excited to see Washington cover another mainstream fashion magazine (she covered Elle in June, her first major fashion magazine cover, followed by Vanity Fair in August and Glamour in October), they weren’t so happy about Washington’s cover photo. On the cover, Washington has her hair in a choppy bob and wears a sheer Dior dress and red scarf.

New York magazine’s the Cut writes, “You thought that nothing could make Kerry Washington look bad, but then you realized that with enough frosty makeup, strange lighting, and overly windblown hair, even the most gorgeous woman will look like she's lunging forward to bite you, and not in a sexy way.”

Jezebel writes, “After being sort-of ignored despite two award-winning films and a hit TV show, Kerry Washington is finally booking a bunch of ladymag covers. Some of her cover shoots have been really quite beautiful. Breathtaking, even! But the December cover of Lucky is no bueno. She looks like a White Walker frost zombie Photoshopped to within an inch of her life.”

The Huffington Post writes, “Between her wind sweep hair, frosted lipstick color, scarf and sheer embroidered dress, there's a lot going on -- and not necessarily in a good way. Kerry doesn't need much to shine. But while this isn't our favorite photo of the star, she's still number one in our book!”
