The $7 Lip Balm Kerry Washington Swears By

As a working mom of three, Kerry Washington was unfazed by the 7 A.M. call time for our tropical-themed March cover shoot. In fact, she bounded onto the sprawling Beverly Hills estate and danced the whole day through to hits by Beyoncé, Mary J. Blige, and The Sugarhill Gang. She paused only to snap Boomerangs in her floral frocks from Dries Van Noten, Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Richard Quinn while traipsing through the grassy hills in sky-high stilettos and decadent jewelry. "We wanted to create the fantasy of this fabulous woman who amuses herself by putting on all of her diamonds and running through the gardens when she's home alone," said stylist Law Roach. 

While we love to envision Washington's reality being just as dreamy, for her everyday looks, the star opts for an accessible mix of Rag & Bone T-shirts, Good American jeans, and ED Ellen DeGeneres sneakers, all glossed up with plenty of Neutrogena beauty (she is an ambassador for the brand). And when those high-fashion moments come around, she turns up the glamour in Christian Louboutin pumps and jewels designed by Prabal Gurung for Tasaki Atelier. 

We're constantly admiring Washington's style, so for our March issue, we asked our cover star to fill us in on all of her best buys. Keep reading for 14 of her favorite things, from fashion and beauty to travel and TV shows.
