This Week's Best Dressed Star: Kerry Washington Finally Reigns Supreme

Posted on

For weeks we’ve been hoping Kerry Washington would take the coveted top spot on our Best Dressed list and finally, StyleWatchers, you agree.

Funny enough, all it took was a classic LBD.

The Scandal actress, known for her trend-setting ensembles, channeled her traditional side in this Calvin Klein Collection dress she wore to the Variety Emmy Studio event in West Hollywood this week.

To add a touch of glam, Washington paired the timeless frock with leopard-print Christian Louboutin heels and a quilted Roger Vivier bag. Completing the look, which earned more than 22,000 likes, was a flawless face of minimal makeup and bold bangs. A modern-day Audrey Hepburn, we’d say.

Two other black-clad beauties claimed second and third place – Carey Mulligan (in a monochromatic look by Hugo Boss) and Emma Watson (in a Chanel mini) – making it the color of the week.

Other fashion-forward celebs worth noting in our top 10 list: Angelina Jolie in her stunning red carpet return wearing a Saint Laurent gown (also in black!) and Sofia Vergara, who offered the one bright spot in a neon blue, curve-hugging Michael Kors sheath.

Tell us: Did Kerry Washington deserve the title of best-dressed star?
