Kerry Washington Named World’s Best Dressed Woman

The Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences And SAG-AFTRA Celebrate The 65th Primetime Emmy Award Nominees

Kerry Washington is the world’s best-dressed woman, according to People magazine.

Modeling unique ensembles and atypical styles for various occasions, the “Scandal” star and Emmy nominee says her secret is finding middle ground in what she wears.

“I like to find balance in an outfit where it doesn’t feel too much of any one thing,” she said. “It’s not dressing like a nun and it’s also not dressing like I’m in a swimsuit competition.” Her latest outfit was a hot pink cocktail frock which she wore to the pre-Emmys reception on Tuesday, Sept. 17.  People also chose other tastemakers to pick their favorites, including Jennifer Lawrence for her high-fashion style, Jessica Chastain specifically for her red-carpet looks, Kate Bosworth for street style and Zoe Saldana for her denim style.

The “Best and Worst Dressed” issue of People magazine will hit newsstands Friday!
