NEW YORK (AP) - "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.
