This past fall, Kerry Washington signed on to be Neutrogena's creative consultant. She looked romantic yet sexy in a cinnamon lip at this year's Oscars.

The Twitter hashtag is gaining steam as fans share why they're inspired by the Scandal star.

Today in happy Twitter news, we're completely inspired by the #CelebrateKerry hashtag honoring Kerry Washington.

Started by Scandal fan @oSoBRANDnew earlier today, the hashtag is quickly gaining steam as fans from around the world share why they love the mom-to-be.

Washington was so moved by the gesture, she chimed in, tweeting, "I'm totally blushing and humbled and kinda speechless about the uber sweet #CelebrateKerry hashtag. Thank you guys."

Twitter user Dana Williams tweeted, "Because @kerrywashington is, I believe that I can be. Kerry you made me believe in possibility again. Be-you-tiful" while Anne-Marie Clarke added, "For your strength, your drive and ambition. We love and appreciate you."

Tell us (and @oSoBRANDnew) why you celebrate the 2013 ESSENCE cover star.
