On Scandal, Washington's character Olivia Pope is known for her great taste in fashion — and her love of popcorn and wine as a meal. But it was Washington herself who landed at the top of People's best dressed list in 2013.
People wrote, "Washington and her character on Scandal, Olivia Pope, have little in common except for this: impeccable style that results in haute hit after hit and nary a miss."
"I like to find balance in an outfit where it doesn't feel too much of any one thing," Washington tells the magazine. "It's not dressing like a nun and it's also not dressing like I'm in a swimsuit competition. It's finding the middle ground."
Washington is followed on the list of best dressed females by Jennifer Lawrence, Nicole Ritchie, Zoe Saldana, Emma Stone, Lily Collins, Kate Bosworth, Jessica Chastain, Solange Knowles and Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
What do you think of Washington's style? Is there anyone missing from the list?
