Kerry Washington Is the Best-Dressed Woman in the World

Kerry Washington has just been named by People magazine as the World’s Best-Dressed Woman, and quite frankly, we are not surprised.

It seems that 2013 is Kerry’s year. Her career is all ablaze with roles such as Broomhilda von Shaft in Quentin Tarantino’s extraordinary Django Unchained and as Olivia Pope in the hit television series Scandal, for which she has earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

The American actress has graced a multitude of magazine covers in this year alone and has quickly become a red carpet favorite for her sartorial decisions and fabulous shoe collection. Kerry makes bold and atypical choices, but she always manages to look classy and effortlessly elegant. All of these and more make her a bonafide style icon and a superstar in her own right.

Here is a rundown of Kerry Washington’s best sartorial moments for this year so far:

1. Bringing the ’60s back in a Louis Vuitton cream shift dress and white Christian Louboutin “Pigalle Plato” pumps
