Bellamy Young Interview
SCANDAL’S BELLAMY YOUNG IS NOT THE FIRST LADY YOU THINK SHE IS
The differences between her style and Mellie’s:
“Mellie is very Escada and very jewel-toned. We played a little bit, we tried a pantsuit this year. She’s not that daring, it’s always very classic and female-power. I’m a child of the ’80s so I love those jewel tones. I love an electric blue, I love fuchsia, I love red. I do love that, but I want to be more comfortable, I want to be more modern. I just want a cleaner line than that, and that dictates my style more.”
“I wish I were cool enough to just live in Alexander Wang.”
Her go-to outfit:
“Something that makes me feel like I can go to any room; I can go to a meeting in the morning, I can go to set, I can go out that night, and still feel like myself wherever I am. So for me, it’s power pants, heels, and a good, sexy top. I’m a waist-and-boobs kind of girl, that’s where my comfort lies.”
On Mellie and Olivia’s newfound partnership:
“I feel it’s a very female thing, forgiveness. We have so much history between us but also so much similarity. Some of the history is great, and some of it, you know, anything Fitz-related is terrible. But it was beautiful to see those two characters get past it and really work shoulder to shoulder toward a common goal. And they’re unstoppable together.”
On working with Kerry Washington:
“She’s just the best. The best friend, the best cheerleader. I remember she was in Italy premiering Django Unchained on, like, our second season and I got a text from her making sure I had a pair of shoes to wear to some truly non-important luncheon. She’s the kindest, most wonderful. None of us had ever been in these situations before and she has shepherded us and mentored us.”
Why she walked in the Women’s March in Los Angeles:
“Whose quote is that, ‘Activism is the rent I pay to live on this planet’—is it Alice Walker? We show up, we use our voices. As Obama said in his parting speech, we hold the highest office in the land [as] citizens. So we have to remember that. We give our power away, but when we show up, we seize it. It’s the only thing that can matter.
“I think we all needed to see each other. There were so many more of us than we realized, it was globally people showing up and saying, ‘This can’t happen, we can’t go backward, we’re not going backward in history,’ but it also was important because the people who would rather us not have our rights and stay at home, they could see us, and they could see that we’re committed and that it’s just the beginning.”
