Actress Kerry Washington, who scored an Emmy nomination for her role in the ABC television drama ‘Scandal,’ is the “World’s Best Dressed Woman,” the People magazine said on Wednesday.
Washington, 36, headed a list of style icons that included AcademyAward-winner Jennifer Lawrence, singer-songwriter Solange Knowles and actresses Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
“I don’t wear a lot of pants,” Washington said in a statement announcing the honour. “When I go somewhere I want to know I’m going to be comfortable and I’m dressed for the event.”
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.
