Kerry Washington Opi & Suzi Weiss Fischmann

Actress and activist, Kerry Washington, has been announced as brand ambassador for OPI’s 40th anniversary year. She served as OPI’s creative ambassador in 2016 and teamed up with OPI co-founder, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, to launch the Washington D.C. nail colour collection.

“We are delighted that Kerry is reprising her role as brand ambassador during our anniversary year,” comments Suzi Weiss-Fischmann. “She is a woman of style and substance who is fierce in everything she undertakes, from acting to activism.”

Throughout 2021, OPI is spotlighting 40 of the brand’s most iconic shades. Among the top shades is Washington’s previously co-created shade, ‘We The Female’ a commanding red nail lacquer that was part of the previous collaboration.

“It is always inspiring to work with Suzi, one of the first female co-founders of a major beauty company,” reveals Washington. “She may be known as the ‘First Lady of Nails’, but she is also a true champion of women’s causes – one whose impact far transcends her own industry.”
