2013 is hands down the year of Kerry Washington. The Scandal star has dominated the small and big screen and, in the process, transformed into a style maven. Clearly, People magazine has taken notice and crowned the newly married actress, “The World’s Best Dressed Woman.”
People released their list of the top 10 style stars of the year and Washington took top honors.
“I like to find balance in an outfit where it doesn’t feel too much of any one thing,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s not dressing like a nun and it’s also not dressing like I’m in a swimsuit competition. It’s finding the middle ground.”
See more highlights from the list below…
NICOLE RICHIE: THE TRENDSETTER
Why She Chose Her: “[Richie] has always had a really eclectic, experimental style, but in the last six months she really knocked it out of the park. Even the gray hair at the Met Gala!”
ZOË SALDANA: THE JEAN QUEEN
Why She Chose Her: “[Saldana] just makes it look so easy. Plus, she rocks jeans of all shapes and sizes: the boyfriend jean, ripped ones. She does it all.”
SOLANGE KNOWLES: THE DAREDEVIL
Why She Chose Her: “[Knowles] is so confident with every single one of her fashion choices and knows what really works for her body and her style. She’s not a 6-foot-tall super-skinny model, but sometimes she can pull it off so much better than the runway.”
