Kerry Washington has been named “World’s Best Dressed Woman” by People magazine. This is not surprising considering that our December/January cover girl consistently lands on ‘best dressed’ lists for her stunning looks on the red carpet. She beat out names like Jennifer Lawrence, Solange Knowles and Zoe Saldana for the honor.
People magazine Executive Editor Elizabeth Sporkin praised Washington for her fashion sense. “There has been a trend this year in lady-like fashion and I think she is almost single-handedly responsible for it,” Sporkin said in an interview.
It must be a really great feeling to win such a distinction for a woman who recently admitted that she had to research fashion-sense earlier in her career. “I don’t wear a lot of pants,” Washington said in a statement announcing the honor. “When I go somewhere I want to know I’m going to be comfortable and I’m dressed for the event.”
Dressed is an understatement, honey. Here are some of Kerry’s best looks this year:
