    Actress Kerry Washington arrives at the 65th Emmy Awards Nomination Celebration at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013 in North Hollywood, California.

    "Scandal" star Kerry Washington is the world's best-dressed woman, according to People magazine.

    Washington, 36, has proved a red-carpet risk-taker, wearing up-and-coming designers and making atypical choices — such as a crystal-covered coral Miu Miu gown for the Oscars. At Tuesday's pre-Emmy reception, she wore a hot-pink cocktail frock.

    Unlike her character on ABC's "Scandal," Washington says she doesn't wear many power-broker pantsuits.

    Washington, selected by the magazine editors, works with stylist Erin Walsh.

    People then tapped other tastemakers to pick their favorites, including Jennifer Lawrence for her high-fashion style, Jessica Chastain specifically for her red-carpet looks, Kate Bosworth for street style and Zoe Saldana for her denim style.

    Photographer Nigel Barker picked It Girl Lily Collins for best up-and-coming style.
