Kerry Washington Sports Edgy Bob on New Lucky Cover

The Scandal star trades in her usual sleek 'do for something a little more freewheeling.

Fresh off her hilarious turn on Saturday Night Live, Scandal star Kerry Washington just landed another plum gig: the December/January cover of Lucky magazine. Lucky editor in chief Eva Chen unveiled the image, shot by Patrick Demarchelier, on Monday's episode of Good Morning America, and we have to say, that hair!

Though not anything as drastic as a pixie cut, the choppy bob is definitely an edgier, more playful style than what we've traditionally seen on Washington, who usually opts for something a little softer and more traditionally glamorous.

It's cute and rather fun, but we have to say it's not our absolute favorite look on her. However, we do think it's right in line with Lucky's polished but anti-glamazon aesthetic, and like how it adds a bit toughness to her ultra-feminine Dior dress (styling duties went to fashion editor at large Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele). Plus, we love a star who's not afraid to take a risk.

What about you -- love the cut? Hate it? Meh about it?
