Inside, she's as bold as her character, modeling looks revamped with bold color by designer labels like Dolce & Gabbana (shown above), Erdem, Peter Som, and Fendi. And it's daring style the actress adopts in her off-duty life, too. "I need to challenge myself," Washington says. "Whether it's fashion or life, I like to go for it. As long as I feel good about what I'm wearing, it doesn't matter if so-and-so calls it ugly." And that’s not all—be sure to read the full interview and see more photographs when the new Emily Blunt-covered May issue hits newsstands Friday, April 19—or download it to your iPad, Nook, or Droid tablet.
